Resistance X‐wings?

What are they doing here?

No idea,
but it probably means trouble.

♪ ♪


You don't mind if we park here,
do you?

For you, Venisa,
I think we can make some room.

Wait, that's Venisa Doza?

You made it!

Hi, wingmate.

It's been too long.

Way too long.

I'm glad you arrived safely.

Was there any doubt,


I can't believe
you're still flying around

in this old rust bucket,

It has seen better days.

So have you, Jarek,

but you're still
top of the line.

Who's this?

This is our newest Ace pilot,

Kazuda Xiono.

I've heard
a lot of good things

about you, Kazuda.

Well, Torra's told me
a lot of great things

about you, too.

And for the record,

I like your ship.

It has character.


Yeah, character.

Bucket, hey!

[droids beeping]

Torch seems happy to be home.

He's not the only one.

But we're not here
for a social flyby.

We're helping
Venisa's squadron on a mission

for the Resistance.

Season 02 Episode 17

Title: "Rebuilding the Resistance


Look at
all that carbon scoring, CB.

They must have been
in some crazy battles.


No drooling on my ship.


Oh, I can't believe it!

You're a pilot
for the Resistance now?

[laughs] Yeah, sure am,
if you can believe that.

Um, Kaz and I flew together

back in the New Republic Navy.

Uh, what about you?

I mean, last I saw,

you were facing off
against that red TIE,

and... we assumed the worst.

Pfft, what, that guy?

Please, I took care of him
no problem.

Oh, really?

Because the way Poe tells it,
he said he saved your...

Anyway, hey, uh,

what brings you here?

The situation's pretty dire.

We've been searching the galaxy

for anyone willing to fight
against the First Order,

but some systems
would rather surrender

than go to war.

[mournful beep]

Commander Doza needs help.

Wait, help?

Where's the rest
of your squadron?

You're looking at it, Kaz.

We're all that's left.

So let me understand this.
Resistance recruits

need an escort
to get off of Dantooine,

which is now under the control
of the First Order.

Yes, and since
the First Order's cracked

all our rendezvous coordinates,

I'd like to bring the recruits
to the Colossus,


until we can find
a new location for them.


I see.

Very well.
You can relocate them here

for a short while.

That's it?

You're... you're not gonna argue
with me about this?

No, not this time.

We tried running and hiding.

Clearly, that didn't work.

Three Aces are all I can spare.

The rest I need for defense.


[suspenseful music]

We'll do it!
We'll do it!

Well, look at that.
Two volunteers.

How... unexpected.

[sighs] Torra, the gravity
of this mission...

We've already talked
about this, Father.

I'm ready.

She's among the best here,

That's saying something.

We have one more spot to fill,

and I know just the pilot.

At ease, team!

Hype's here to save the day!

Long time no see.

Still up for a challenge,

Oh, you know it.

How may
my superior flying skills

be of use today?

Uh, what's with this guy?

How much time do you have?

This is Dantooine.

The First Order has taken
control of the planet,

creating a blockade
and cutting off

all long‐range communications.

Three shuttles carrying

a handful
of Resistance recruits

are trying to escape
to join us.

Our mission
is to extract the shuttles

and escort them
back to the Colossus

without the First Order
catching on.

With luck,

we will have
minimal engagement,

but there are no guarantees.

Those recruits are like us.

Some have lost everything
because of the First Order.

Others want to fight
to protect the ones they love.

To protect these recruits
is to protect our future.

We are the spark,

and we are all
in this together.

This is a dangerous mission,

and I am honored to fly
with all of you.

[resolute music]

Good luck.

♪ ♪

I see you haven't lost
your touch

for giving rousing speeches.


I need to tell you something
before we leave.

I saw Tam.

You did?
How was she?

Considering I was the one
stuck in a cell,

she was doing just fine.

Is she...

Conflicted, yes,

but she needs
to sort things out

on her own.

Give her time.

♪ ♪

[sad beeps]

Sorry, Torch, but Bucket
can't go with us.

He's needed here.

Maybe next time.
[droids beeping]

Jade Squadron,
let's move out.

I ran
through the preflight checks

with Torch.
Your ship is good to go.

When we get to Dantooine,
be sure to...

Stay on your wing.
Got it.

[dramatic music]

♪ ♪

All right, wingmate.
You ready?

Let's do this.

♪ ♪

Everything will be fine.

When Venisa and Torra
are together,

they're unstoppable.

[sighs] I know,

but it still doesn't make it
any easier.

[engines whooshing]

There she is.

Torch, keep your eyes open
for any unwanted company.


You guys see anything
on your scanners?

Nothing yet.
Wait, wait, wait, wait!

Oh, my... say that again.
You're telling me that Kaz

almost got thrown out
of the academy.

Oh, yeah.
A couple of times, actually.

Those were all

Oh, you... you have made
my day! [laughs]

I'm gonna buy you a round
at Aunt Z's after this.

Look, I'm really glad
that you two

are hitting it off,

but Norath and I
are trying to concentrate.

I don't mind.

It's the most entertainment
I've had in weeks.

All right, everyone.

Focus on the mission.

Yeah, what she said.

[dramatic music]

Commander Doza,

I've got multiple contacts
at 1‐0‐4.

Looks like
a scouting squadron.

Torch, jam their comms

as soon as they come
into range.

[engines howling]

This should go quickly.

Break off into pairs.

Torra, you're with me.

♪ ♪

Well, wingmate?

Are you thinking
what I'm thinking?

The Doza Dive?

That's the one.

Can you handle it?

Not a problem.

♪ ♪

Great shot, Mom.

Nicely done yourself.

I learned from the best.

How's it looking,
Jade Squadron?

♪ ♪

Our TIEs are clear.

Kaz, Hype,
what's your status?

Just a couple left.

Commander Pyre,
we need backup.

Our blockade is being shot down
by the Resistance.

Get off my tail!

Can't shake this bucket‐head.

Hype, keep him on your six.

I'm coming around.

Uh, what's the holdup?

I need you to bank hard
on my count.

Three, two, one, now!


[laughs] Nice shot!
Like I'm always saying,

a pilot needs a wingmate
watching their back.

Oh, like you're
always saying?

Great work, team.

these shuttles airborne.

Your squad's being activated.

I want that convoy found

No, sir.
Not at all.

Then I suggest
you keep your ears open

You wanted to see me,
Agent Tierny.

Is everything all right,

You seem agitated.

Not at all.

I made second in command

of my squadron,

so things are great.

Does this look familiar
to you?

It's my comlink
from the Colossus.

I admit, I had my doubts
about you at first,

but that changed when you
turned this over to me.

You were wise
not to be deceived

by Kazuda Xiono's lies.

Those who betray us...

Become our enemy.

You know, I wasn't born
into the First Order.

For years, I scraped by

under the rule
of the New Republic.

But I knew
I was meant for more.

I brought you here
because I saw

the same potential in you,

and you've surpassed
all my expectations.

Thank you, Agent Tierny.

Keep surpassing them.

Do not let me down, Tamara.

Even though this mission
was a failure,

three Resistance shuttles

that Lieutenant Galek died

in service to the First Order

a fine squadron commander,

has now created opportunities

I destroyed that shuttle.

Ah, but you got it anyway.

Funny how it always works out

The Resistance was counting
on us.

We failed.
It's all my fault.

I should've seen
that TIE coming.

No, no, I was too cocky.

I should've been watching
the shuttle.

Listen up,

because it's important
you all understand this.

No matter how hard
we try to save everyone,

there's always going to be loss
in war.

But... we only truly fail
when we lose hope.

Those recruits made it out
because of us.

That's a victory.

It still doesn't make it
any easier,

seeing what the First Order's
capable of.

I mean, what if Tam
was in one of those TIEs?

We can't assume that.

All we can hope is that she,

or anyone else,
for that matter,

realizes what the First Order
truly is.

Giving up on people
is the easy way out.

We're better than that.

They're right.

Come on.

Let's go give our guests

a proper Colossus welcome.

[warm music]

You always had a way
with words.

on some than others.

may have us beat in numbers,
