S0A1 – Stuck in the Middle, Part 1

Welcome to New Republic Radio!

Our first story arc, STUCK IN THE MIDDLE, features a largely-unknown tale of a band of Imperial defectors who abandoned their Star Destroyer fleet in the months following the Battle of Endor. There is laughter, terror, heroism, failure, and explosive party favors.

STUCK IN THE MIDDLE features the following performers:

  • RJ-3154 is performed by Rodrigo Jiménez, a professional actor near Mexico City, who can be found on Twitter @RealStarRod or on his YouTube channel, StarRod.
  • Roland Royce is performed by Joe Khasm, who can be found on Twitter @JoeKhasm, or in his regular appearances on the Flight Risk Podcast.
  • SM-564 is performed by Scott Massey, who can be found on Twitter @Thegreatmassey.

This story arc is part of the four-arc Season Zero – a group of adventures set during important events after Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, intended to help bridge the gap between the original trilogy and the events of this show, which occur around the same time as The Mandalorian.

Each month will feature a new story arc with new players on worlds all across the Galaxy, some familiar and some never-before-seen.
