Only one hope remains — the last remaining heir to the Skywalker legacy. Cade may be strong in the Force — but years after a tragedy, he is a bounty hunter, working with Jariah Syn and Deliah Blue. When he reluctantly finds himself at the center of galactic turmoil, Cade may be forced to embrace his heritage. But will the path on which he embarks be one of redemption, or damnation? Collecting STAR WARS: LEGACY (2006) #0-19.

Hell’s Heart, the first book in the Star Trek: Prey trilogy by John Jackson Miller is out today. You can read our full non-spoiler review right here and you can check out our interview with John covering the book and the trilogy right here.

When Klingon commander Kruge died in combat against James T. Kirk on the Genesis planet back in 2285, he left behind a powerful house in disarray—and a series of ticking time bombs: the Phantom Wing, a secret squadron of advanced Birds-of-Prey; a cabal of loyal officers intent on securing his heritage; and young Korgh, his thwarted would-be heir, willing to wait a Klingon lifetime to enact his vengeance.

Now, one hundred years later, while on a diplomatic mission for the United Federation of Planets, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise are snared in the aged Korgh’s trap—and thrust directly in the middle of an ancient conflict. But as Commander Worf soon learns, Korgh may be after far bigger game than anyone imagines, confronting the Federation-Klingon alliance with a crisis unlike any it has ever seen!

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Beyond the Vote: A Long Expected Partition jumps back into politics as Riley and Scott catch up on what’s passed and talk about what’s to come. Enjoyable as always and I hope they put out a few more episodes before the election comes to an end.

Blabba the Hutt: Episode 27 mentions their award nomination, they talk about the Darth Vader comic, the book Cinema Alchemist, the new TFA release, and for the main discussion, Kate talks about her trip to Ireland and Skellig Michael with some interview clips which are pretty interesting. Good episode with some nice insight on Ireland, beneficial if you’re thinking about going there.

Blast Points: Episode 40 features guest Darin Beaver. Darin was a senior visual effects artist for Disney Infinity and also worked on Star Wars Kinect. They talk with Daren about both games which leads to some fun stories about the infamous dance mode, the code names involved with The Force Awakens characters in Infinity, and the challenges and secrecy involved. Darin even talks about how well Disney handled the layoff process. Very interesting and entertaining episode. I highly recommend this one. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
