It's a tugboat! Leave it to the Scum & Villainy faction to slap some guns on the Quadjumper and field it in combat. It has some nifty tricks, including being the first X-Wing ship to move backward. Time will tell if this jury rigged commercial craft will prove combat ready.

We then share our squads and results from San Diego Regional, with a heavy emphasis on TIE Defenders. All three of us flew it, because they're unequivocally great...but since everybody knows this, do they ironically become a liability in the upper tiers of a premiere tournament?

The answer as always:

X-wing pilots, we analyze the top squads from Worlds with our very own Top 16er, Joe Desmond! Then the never-ending season continues into Regionals, as we congratulate San Diego winner, our very own Joe Desmond!

We were long overdue for an interview with our Mynock Chosen One, but his recent successes give us ample reason to finally feature Joe on the show. Joe and Dee draw upon first-hand head-to-head experiences to discuss the top squads at Worlds. Ryan was there too, we guess. Ryan provides his own very valuable insight!

X-wing pilots, we're taking a badly needed break. We'll be back in full force next week, but we hope you enjoy this retrospective clip show! We take a walk down memory lane and give you a show filled with some of our favorite moments. There's nonsense and some really great content...but mostly just nonsense!  Enjoy!

Fantasy Flight previewed Kylo Ren's command shuttle, and it packs some wicked content. We then finish our Squint talk with Phennir, Jax, and Soontir... Does Defender domination bring Jax to prominence? Does stress suppress the mighty Soontir?? Phennir anything?!
