This week true believers, Beyonders, Fanboys, Fangirls, respected aliens around the galaxy, The Champion of the Multiverse; Mark Hurliman, and your Count of Continuities; Nathan P. Butler sit down to discuss Alexander Freed’s Star Wars: Battlefront: Twilight Company. So strap in and tighten your crash webbing Fandom, Star Wars Beyond the Films is setting off on another rapid-fire trip into that galaxy far, far away!
This episode your hosts discuss:
We see key moments from the films in a new light.
A true understanding of how bad a blow the Empire dealt at Hoth.
Audio book narrated by Johnathan Davis
A lot of potential: This book could easily be the 1st installment of a series like Wraith Squadron.
Could this have worked as a story mode for the game Battlefront 2 where we are WITH Twilight Company, or maybe as Namir or Gadren?
Will we ever see more Twilight Company stories?
The characters all had names that were easy to read, and sounded cool. They weren’t extra exotic to prove they were Star Wars.
We probably wont see these characters else where- that’s the real crime of the new canon…
Chalis is Count Vidian’s replacement.
The ship the Thunderstrike is like the Nightcaller in Legends, Twilight Company is similar to a new Wraith Squadron.
We learn of Plan Kay One Zero and the evacuation of the Rebel base on Hoth.
A very desolate war story at times.
Once more your hosts cover entirely too much Rebellion action this episode. But don’t worry, give it a go; you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even get a little education on Star Wars while you’re at it. But no matter how you slice it and dice it, you’ll be having another adventure Beyond the Films. So sit back, hang on, enjoy the show, and may the Force be with you!
