Wrapping up a trilogy in film or in literature is a difficult task as you try to do justice to all the conflicts and character arcs that you’ve created and it’s what faced Timothy Zahn as he brought his Thrawn series to a close.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by smugglers Bruce Gibson and John Mills to talk about The Last Command. We discuss, the end, impressions now, the smuggler’s alliance, the assault on Coruscant, the cover issue, the mountain takedown, the epilogue, with great power, universe building and our ratings and rankings.
