Rebel Assault Episode Guide
The captain and heart of the Ghost crew, Hera Syndulla was a gifted pilot and leader. While Hera was a strong commander -- and especially adept at dogfighting with TIE fighters -- she was also warm and nurturing. The Twi’lek could bring out the best in her team, which consisted of very different personalities, making them believe in themselves, each other, and their struggle against the Empire.
Leader of Iron Squadron and captain of Sato’s Hammer, Mart Mattin was a creative, if somewhat reckless, young rebel. When the Empire invaded his homeworld, Mykapo, he initially refused to leave, even though his ship had a broken hyperdrive. Eventually, Mart and Iron Squadron joined forces with the Ghost crew, handing the Empire a defeat and escaping to fight another day. He was reunited with his uncle, the famed Commander Sato, and his friends.
Chopper was the resident droid of the Ghost, assisting the crew in everything from ship maintenance to combat -- even though he didn't always want to. After many years of repairs and patch jobs, Chopper had a beat-up, worn look that matched his sometimes cranky personality. Aesthetics aside, he was an essential part of this small rebel team, and ultimately, was loyal and heroic.
Among the Empire's most powerful defense weapons, the anti-air turbolaser tower are designed to thwart incoming fighter attacks. Featuring two cannons, it is notable for its range and precision. The Empire commonly lined anti-air turbolaser towers together to create a blockade. Its biggest weakness, however, is a lack of protection from ground-based assaults.
