    Yeah but like BookExogorth mentioned, there is no indication that anything went wrong with the meeting with her contact. Her script at the end makes it sound like she was joy riding on Sabine's bike, and to back that up there is the fact that we had just seen her wreck a bike on purpose for no reason other than to show off I guess (Physics fail again by the way, she should be in that wall on fire with the bike).

    I thought the brakes had malfunctioned and she had to throw herself off (and, on the ground, bleed off the momentum from being on the bike, fast, in order to avoid rolling into the fire).

    I guess you could look at it like that, but there is no actual indication of that. She seems to be on the throttle and crouched down on the bike in a low drag position, not what you'd be doing if you were trying to stop. And she jumps off the bike and instantaneous stops in mid air. This is Star Wars though where unpowered ships stop in space, so I will forgive FoD here, it happens so often in all SW media, character jumps off/out a speeding, out of control and crashing vehicle and hits the ground at walking speed, all their previous momentum having magically disappeared.

    the Rey one I liked because more Rey in anything. The Jyn one kinda ticked me off because there is no freakin' way that was Felicity Jones unless she had a pretty severe head cold and forgot her accent. I do appreciate the feast one because I always KNEW the Ewoks were going to eat the Imps, and have been believing that for years, so it's nice to see how they got out of it. And, hey, Hera's still alive, whooo.

    That is Felicity Jones, and her Jyn voice is pretty much her natural accent. People just sound different in the vocal booth. It probably wasn't even a vocal booth, she may have recorded her lines over the phone or something. I was surprised to find out that Genevieve O'Reilly was the voice of Mon Mothma in Rebels, for instance.

    I have to watch it again if it is Felicity, I could hardly tell it was her. The first FoD short, I could tell straight away.

    So according to some Internet searching we're done for a while and we'll get more stories in 2018...

    I hope they get bored of good girls and starting in with bad girl episodes. They can still have "good" morals about friendship and being patient when your friends trash your stuff, and still be "villains". (TCW actually did that fairly well when Asajj was a bounty hunter).

    Aw poor Maz is still homeless and now she's going to get eaten by nocturnal critters that have already shown a blatant disregard for her cutlery. She probably has only a couple of bowls after she left her castle.

    I just saw this on an advertisement today -- it looks like Sabine might go to Yavin, if it's not just marketing?

    Shouldn't her hair be coloured like in Season 3 & 4? This hair colour is like in Season 2, and the Ghost Crew didn't go to Yavin until after Season 3 ended.

    So, yeah, I guess just marketing? TBH I don't remember what scenes were shown in the trailers and thus I don't know if Sabine was shown on Yavin in any of them [face_dunno]

    Just picked up the Forces of Destiny: Tales of Hope and Courage in-universe journal written by Maz Katana. It adapts a number of strories from the FoD series as told from the perspective of Maz. They include: Leia - Beasts of Echo Base, Sabine - Newest Recruit, Ahsoka - The Padawan Path, Jyn - The Stranger and Rey - Sands of Jakku.

    To be honest being told from Maz's perspective doesnt add anything, but I was pleased to read that with Echo base they included the missing scenes from the Daring Adventures adaptation.

    The main draw of these journals are the pull outs and the added bits here and there. Sadly the majority of the pull outs are larger artwork, whilst admittidly quite nice, not what I wanted. Leia's story does however have a pull out with incoming transmissions from Han, Luke and C3PO on Hoth before ESB. Equally Jyn's pull out shows what Jyn has on her whilst on Garel. This includes, credits. com link, thermal detanator, necklace, slicing equipment and perhaps weirdly pins used for unlocking shaped like the star bird and the Republic.

    There is also an invite for The Festival of Light Gala which commemorates Naboo's joining of the Republic. Guests can cosy up with Padme and Chancellor Palpatine on Naboo. Fireworks at dawn!

    Also one thing did make me chuckle, whilst Maz respects the Jedi, she found the council too "stuffy".

    Do you think it'd be possible to show us a pic of the invitation?

    Your wish is my command (although very lucky, as I only have access to a scanner at work and this was delivered to my work by the postman today!)

    Ah, they didn't region lock Volume 2 FoTD so I can finally see what Maz has been up to this whole time! (Seriously, region locking is annoying but the fact they region locked Vol 1 and didn't region lock this means I only get half of what she's been doing)

    Although that may have to wait a week cuz I've been studiously avoiding youtube for fear of TLJ spoilers. Heck even when I hit pause on that there's a TLJ analysis video, ahhh!!

    Episode 206 looks very interesting if it's post ESB pre ROTJ....

    And if it'll tie into Moving Target.

    Judging by the episode length, it seems very unlikely.

    It looks like all those porgs are saying "Hold me! Hold meeeeee!" [face_laugh]

    Also, is this the first Forces of Destiny episode focused on a male character (Luke)? Interesting. I wonder why they're straying from the formula.

    "Forces of Destiny 207 – The Path Ahead
    Training with Master Yoda in the swamps of Dagobah, Luke learns an important lesson."
    The lesson is that if he fails, Yoda has a back up plan.
    Yoda: Thank God, a twin you are.
    Luke: What was that?
    Yoda: Nothing.
