Star Wars Generations Member Bonus • Book Club January 2024

Book Club • Republic Commando: Hard Contact • Member Bonus

Before Revenge of the Sith, before The Clone Wars, there was Hard Contact, the first book in the Star Wars: Republic Commando series. Although that series is now considered part of the Legends canon, its impact is evident in the movies, books, video games, and all other Star Wars media that followed, both Legends and Disney. In this episode, Erin McGowan, Alek Korman, and Matthew Fox discuss Hard Contact, the series it spawned, and how it has shaped many themes later explored—the nature of the clones, the Jedi’s responsibility to them, and how the war precipitated the fall of the Jedi Order, among others.
 
This episode marks the launch of the Star Wars Generations Book Club, an exclusive section for members where each month we will delve into a book that significantly enhances our broader understanding of Star Wars. Stay tuned for February when we will explore Dark Disciple in preparation for Star Wars: The Bad Batch, Season 3! Interested in becoming a member so you can have access to member bonus episodes like this, not to mention ad-free episodes, early access, additional member content, and more?
