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 explore the death of Darth Krayt, as well as Dac in John Ostrander’s STAR WARS: LEGACY (Vol 10.) Extremes. 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:
The guys give a SPOILER-FREE run down, just be sure to jump off at Tarkin’s Arrogance!
The extermination of the Mon Cal.
When we return to Agamar and Jedi Master Rasi Tuum
Darth Havoc introduces himself to the princess who is captured and about to be tortured
Cade is hunting Sith, most notably Vul Isen, the Givin Sith now known as the butcher of Dac.
Skull Squadron is tasked with shooting any ships to come to orbit.
Luke shows up and tells Cade he should just completed his Jedi training.
Utapau is currently giving the Alliance fleet safe haven, but Stazi and Administrator Medon were being spied on by a mouse droid….
Bastion!! Does it exist in canon yet?
Azlyn and Tuums story of how they “tried” was done in flashback. Makes you wonder if they had bigger plans but cut back due to time or something in the schedule.
Draco is consumed with fear for the Princess. And his anger flares.
A message to the emperor tells him his daughter was sent to Korriban. Master Snyde comments “we could not rescue her from there if wee had a THOUSAND ships!”
The emperor says she knows too much about every thing from,the empire to the Jedi secret temple. She needs rescued in 3 hours or stilled. (killed)
One could almost make a case that Cade is our first Punisher, hitting bad guys in the name of good. But Sazen is still worried about HOW Cade operates.
Draco’s master turns out to be alive, his Master left the Imperial Knights Order and joined the One Sith he became Darth Havok
An interesting twist, when Draco frees the Princess she calls hoim a traitor because “you were sent to KILL your former master for abandoning his vows as an Imperial knight You were supposed to destroy Esgkar Niin” (talk about EXTREME! You serve for life!!)
Draco sacrifices himself to hold the Sith back while the princess escapes. “Go! come you hounds of the darj! Come to your deaths! Hurl your power at me! I deny you! I defy you! I AM A KNIGHT OF THE EMPIRE, AND I AM YOUR DOOM!”
Lord Krayt is very much alive and well. Healed even.
Krayt reveals his Sith Troopers. An army suitably loyal and undefeatable. decades ago he started culling the strongest in the force shortly after birth, and augmenting them. perfect soldiers.
Krayt even has new ships, Annihilators with the power to breach a star destroyers….
Cade has a vision of his future, a fight with Krayt but after that he sees nothing. Nothing, save a black panel. He figures he dies…. “I get it now. Every thing that’s happened all my life… …you shaped me to do this. doesn’t matter if I’m a jedi or not. everyone has a DESTINY. this one is mine. I can feel it in my gut. so me, and Krayt… one final round. Never expected to get old. never figured to die in bed. I got. job to do. … even if it’s my last.”
THE BEGINNING OF THE END.
