Star Wars Rebels - Season 3, Episode 9 //
The Wynkahthu Job Episode Guide
In this installment of Rebels Recon, we take a look at the Star Wars Rebels episode "The Wynkahthu Job," in which the Ghost crew joins forces with Hondo and Azmorigan. Host Andi Gutierrez sits down with the show's creators and stars, including Justin Ridge, Pablo Hidalgo, Henry Gilroy, Taylor Gray, and more.
A tough, pragmatic Weequay, Hondo Ohnaka led a notorious Outer Rim pirate gang from his headquarters on Florrum. A former colleague of Jango Fett and a former lover of Aurra Sing, Ohnaka won fame during the Clone Wars when he kidnapped Count Dooku, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Anakin Skywalker and tried to ransom all three for a big payout. Since that incident, he maintained a peculiar relationship with the Republic -- respecting the Jedi Knights, but not being above robbing them blind or betraying them. During the age of the Empire, Ohnaka found himself running a solo operation, but he continued scheming and dealing. He was, after all, a pirate through-and-through.
Slovenly and greedy, Azmorigan was a gangster of unknown origin who dealt in the trade of rare, and often illegal, goods and services. His base of operations was his ship, the Merchant One, populated with servant droids and his own henchmen. While feared by many, Azmorigan suffered a major embarrassment when he was double-crossed by Lando Calrissian, resulting in the loss of the crime lord's hard-to-find puffer pig.
Resistance bombers carry more than 1,000 proton bombs in racks that fill a modular magazine beneath the hull. On a bombardier’s signal, the bomb-bay doors open and the magnetized charges are drawn towards the target below. Resistance crew members often decorate proton bombs with cartoons or defiant messages aimed at the First Order.
Wynkahthu, not far from Ord Mantell, was a gas giant with turbulent upper atmospheric storms, giving it a yellow appearance from space. An abandoned Imperial cargo ship was left adrift near Wynkahthu, and the Ghost crew, along with pirates Azmorigan and Hondo Ohnaka, went there on a mission to raid its weapons lot.
