Fighter Flight

Star Wars: RebelsAs punishment for scuffling in the cargo bay and leaving it a mess, Zeb and Ezra are sent on a supply procurement mission that’s a bit more like a scavenger hunt. One of the items, an imported fruit, can only be stolen from Imperial supplies, a caper which becomes bigger than either bargained for when Zeb steals a TIE Fighter. Under stritct orders from Kanan to ditch the TIE Fighter and return to the Ghost on foot, Zeb and Ezra make a detour to help some oppressed locals, a task easier said than done unless Ezra can continue to strengthen his prowess in the Force.

Notes: The episode’s title is a play on the phrase “fight or flight”, referring to the psychological response to imminent danger. The Imperial prisoner transports are modeled closely Rebelsupon Kenner’s Imperial Troop Transport toy from 1979, a vintage vehicle which was actually loosely based upon a transport seen in the Rebel base in Star Wars. The only thing missing is the strangely blocky “blinder” devices for the prisoners.
