The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy
S9: Imperial Hunger Games

Star Wars: Lost Stars.

The story of Star Wars is usually told from the perspective of the heroes and that has left many questions for fans as to why someone would willingly join the Empire or what was the populace response to the the changing of the guard from Republic to Empire and finally many of those answers are coming to light though the new canon novels.

In this supplemental episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Rebel Scum Bruce Gibson, John Mills and Mike Schindler to talk Claudia Gray’s Lost Stars. We discuss our first impressions, the Imperial point of view, the character, the canon, comparisons, wrapping up with our final thoughts and ratings.
