Trivia

Production

  • During early development, the episode was originally titled "Darklighter" and dealt with the defection of Biggs Darklighter into the Rebel ranks, but timeline complications with his backstory meant that Wedge was the better candidate. The original plot line also indicated that Sabine would have been responsible for the checkered decoration patches on Biggs' helmet in A New Hope, as Sabine decorated part of her armor with a similar design at one point.

References to Other Star Wars Media

  • Sabine goes by the alias "Ria Talla," the name of a character who was going to be a companion of Jyn Erso
  • Wedge's line "I can fly anything" (when asked if he can fly a TIE Bomber) also seems to be a nod towards Poe Dameron's in The Force Awakens, who gives the same exact line when asked if he can fly a TIE Fighter.
  • The device that Sabine takes from Pryce is a "Code cylinder", a kind of electronic access keycard. They have been visible on Imperial officer uniforms since the Original Trilogy, but their function was only elaborated upon in spinoff books and comics.
  • Aftermath has a part where Wedge remembers how he was recruited into the Rebellion by Fulcrum, and this episode shows how exactly he defected.

Event Chronology

Episode Connections

  • Sabine used to be an Imperial cadet back in the Mandalorian Imperial Academy, and now she's returning back to another one.
  • There's a new Fulcrum, now that Ahsoka, the original Fulcrum, is gone. They've also carried over her symbol, which was last used in her debut episode, "Out of Darkness".
    • Fulcrum's identity is revealed in the tenth episode.
  • Kallus lets Sabine and co. escape and tells them which levels to avoid, then instructs her to "Tell Garazeb Orrelios, we're even."
