I'm enjoying seeing more of this particular time period (the immediate aftermath of the formation of the Empire) which hasn't been shown much before, and it's interesting to see an Imperial occupation by clonetroopers and Clone War-era AT-TE walkers.

It makes total sense that while the Batch would hate the Empire, they've also been programmed from birth to hate the Separatists despite the fact that the Separatists are now the enemy of their enemy.

The escape on the walker was fun, I like a good tank battle. I love that Omega is an unbeatable space-chess prodigy.

I knew the Senator sounded familiar! It's Dr Bashir!

So much for keeping a low profile—because staging a prison break on the Separatist homeworld isn’t going to get noticed? They really are a bunch of laser-brains. It was also great to be back with Cid, our favorite dirtbag grandma.

I do wish we had seen at least something of Crosshair but this was a fun episode. The landscapes keep getting better on this show, it feels like the animators are just showing off at this point.

Almost forgot: Echo sniffing the popcorn was sending me. That poor weirdo!

As far as I could tell from the depiction, the core to Omega's strategy was her innovative "I will take 3 moves in a row by pushing the buttons a bunch of times."

Not a bad bit; the relatively slow-motion tank chase was nice. Have they made a point that the Batch doesn't usually kill people and only stuns? I don't know that I'd noticed it before.

This was the first time that was highlighted, and I'm pretty sure it hasn't been a thing before now.
