‘Star Wars Resistance’ Juggles Action, Humor, and Teeth-Clenching Emotion in “Station to Station”

A love and pining for home haunts the fast-paced action of Star Wars Resistance in “Station to Station.” This episode would not have worked as well if the viewer hadn’t witnessed the civilian idyllics on the Colossus in the lighthearted “Kaz’s Curse.” Even though the Colossus never appears in this episode, its humble homeliness is an emotional core in “Station to Station”. Tam (Suzie McGrath) and Jace Rucklin (Elijah Wood) begin their day-in-the-life with the First Order by performing the men...
