Everyone knows that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is coming out soon (LOLWUT?), and everyone’s all atwitter about it. To that end, I’ve been doing my part to help everyone prepare.
So this is the first of a few posts with links to resources that will refresh your memories about that galaxy far, far away and clue you in to a few things to look for when those first flickering images come up on screen.
The 602 Club
My good friend @mattrushing02 hosts a podcast on TrekFM called “The 602 Club” (if you need an explanation of the title,it’s an Enterprise reference).
He’s gracious enough to let me appear on it when Star Wars is the topic – along with other guests. So, here are some primers for you about the story so far, and the materials in the margins.
If you want to subscribe to the special feed, you can get all these Star Wars shows, ones not listed, and any others to come. The feed is here in iTunes and is part of the TrekFM network.
