Two starships having a laser battle above a desert planet in a binary star system, during which electronic plans are stored in the memory of an artificially-intelligent robot that takes an escape pod to the surface. There it is captured by junk scavengers and sold to farmers who rely on machines that extract moisture from the atmosphere. Later they leave the planet on a tramp starship that travels through hyperspace to a space station the size of a moon where the robot hacks into the computers and they manage to turn off the power to the tractor beam. They escape to the Rebel Base on the moon of a gas giant where they read the plans and decide to attack the space station with small fighter craft, and against all hope score a direct torpedo hit down the exhaust port leading to the main reactor and blow up the station. Hooray!
Oh, and three characters have (mild) psychic powers.
Wow, what a season. From the opening at the rainy PreMor leisure district to the climactic conclusion in highlands of Aldh-
What's that? You're saying this is only the halfway point of the series? The halfway point of the first season of the series?
No, that can't be right. You're saying that after this—perhaps the best pound-for-pound filmmaking we've covered on the podcast—we get... more?
Kattullus: “I had to take a fifteen minute pause to gather myself before the imperials got into the hangar. What a tense episode.”
Don't play the high mind with me. You're not here to save anybody but yourself. I saw it the first minute you came into camp. You're just like me, we were born in the hole, and all we know is climbing over somebody else to get out.
