Cade Skywalker, the Imperial Knights, and the Jedi vs THE SITH EMPIRE?! All this and more! All on the next Star Wars Beyond the Films. YOUR Star Wars discussion podcast! YOUR ticket to the EU!
This week true believers, Beyonders, Fanboys, Fangirls, respected aliens around the galaxy, The Defender of the EU; Mark Hurliman, and your EU Guru; Nathan P. Butler, sit down to explore Dark Horse Comics Star Wars: Legacy Vol 5 The Hidden Temple covering issues 23-26 of the Legacy series, covering Loyalties and the Hidden Temple, by John Ostrander. So strap in and tighten your crash webbing Fandom, Star Wars Beyond the Films is setting off on another rapid-fire trip into the galaxy far, far away!
We’d like to start off by letting you know this episode was the almost “lost episode” that you might have heard about. Nathan’s computer glitched and lost the main recording, but the back-up was salvageable. You will notice Mark’s end of the call has some gain issues due to the recapturing of the audio. This has been corrected for next week, but did reduce the quality of his end of the recording this week. For this we apologize.
This week your hosts stay SPOILER FREE for the first 22 minutes of the show, be sure to jump off at their SPOILER-WARNING Tarkin’s Arrogance!
Cade Skywalker just wants to be left alone. But when you and your friends have just blown up half of the Sith Temple, cut down two of Emperor Darth Krayt’s most trusted minions, and you happen to be the last known heir of the Skywalker legacy, people — bad people, and lots of them — are going to come knocking.
The Empire’s retaliatory genocide on Mon Calamari is just the icing on the cake. Cade and his bounty-hunter band realize that something must be done! If only there was somebody to help Cade save the galaxy and get the Sith off his back. Maybe a bunch of Jedi?
The secrets of the Hidden Temple are revealed — along with a spy who was once a friend!
What did you think of the series? Haven’t read it yet? Are you looking forward to it now? How did your hosts rank this story? How close are they in their march to Vector? You’ll have to listen for those details and the details to their 100th Episode Celebration Contest!
Once again, your dynamic duo cover entirely too much Legacy action in their ONE hour, but don’t worry, give it a go; you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even get a little education on the EU while you’re at it. But no matter how you slice it and dice it, you’ll be having another adventure Beyond the Films. So sit back, hang on, enjoy the show, and may the Force be with you!
