The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy
58: Jedi Arkham

Star Wars: Dark Force Rising.

After the success of Heir to the Empire, June of 1992 could not come fast enough for fans to see what would happen next in the Star Wars Saga.

In this episode of The 602 Club we continue our look back at The Thrawn Trilogy as host Matthew Rushing is joined by Bruce Gibson and John Mills to talk about Dark Force Rising. We discuss if the story feels fluid or crowded, Jedi training, Leia and the Noghri, Han and Lando, Senator Garm Bel Iblis, the big reveal, retconning clones, connection to the Prequels, Mara Jade and our ratings.
