This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast, we’re traveling to a galaxy far, far away to a time even older than long ago to examine Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Volume 1: Commencement.

From Dark Horse Comics

Thousands of years before Luke Skywalker would destroy the Death Star in that fateful battle above Yavin 4, one lone Padawan would become a fugitive hunted by his own Masters, charged with murdering every one of his fellow Jedi-in-training!

From criminals hiding out in the treacherous under-city of the planet Taris, to a burly, mysterious droid recovered from the desolate landscape of a cratered moon, Padawan Zayne Carrick will find unexpected allies in his desperate race to clear his name before the unmerciful authorities enact swift retribution upon him!

We really enjoy reading your thoughts on the show.  You can post your comments below, or record your thoughts in a MP3 format and mail it to us before Tuesday night!

  1. oh man, i read that a long time ago. but that wsa the only star wars book i could stand at the time. it was just awesome.

    i need to look for some kind of omnibus with all the mini-series in it. or they need to release one.

  2. I have read these and played the video games. If George Lucas really wanted to restart the franchise in the movies, this is the source material. You can get the Jedi Groove they are attempting to get from the “Clone Wars”, but do not have to worry as much about stepping on the sacred Skywalker ground.
