Iden Versio and My Burgeoning Star Wars Fandom

This has been about two years in the making, with Star Wars under new and specific direction (Kathleen Kennedy), where finally the promise of Rey and Jyn has turned up something so outstanding it entirely occupied my thoughts for two days straight, ruining a weekend: the revelation of Iden Versio in the ‘upcoming’ Star Wars: Battlefront II. … More Iden Versio and My Burgeoning Star Wars Fandom

Though — I have to say, my favorite pun title is for my worst episode, about Terminator, and it’s Rust, Caution. So brilliant, but I’ve gotten no feedback on it. I need my feedback … More Prometheus Unbiased and the Future of Alien
