Amazing episodes.

This is something completely different from Kenobi. Way different in tone and world presented. At the very beginning of the 1st episode it felt like Blade Runner.

Can we discuss the technology here already?

I made this post the 'spoilers allowed' thread, so yes.

I'm sorry, I've got a lot going on in my life right now and it slipped my mind that this show even started. Not even sure when we are going to watch it.

This is the new thread dedicated to the Andor series on Disney+. Spoilers are allowed here at any time. Outside of this thread, please see the Rancor Pit Spoiler Policy. Thank you.

I re watched it today. There are some issues I was wondering about.

1.
Ferrix is in Morlani system.

Morlana One is.... in the same system (according to Wookiepedia)? But the Corpos flew from Morlana One to Ferrix through hyperspace. Its location is not mentioned in the series.

2.
Untraceable NS-9 Starpath Unit.

Vector crystals and seal still intact. You can track every Imperial coordinate for nine radial parsecs - Andor

So..."untraceable" does it mean it covers your exit vector and entry moment from scanners?

Tracking Imperial coordinates - you can scan for each entry/exit hyperspace vector (Imperial star charts) for starship presence?

Yay for the shout-outs to the Orlean Star Cab (GG 8: Scouts) and Fest (Rebel Alliance Sourcebook)!

This show is the most West End Star Wars thing since '98.

Turns out Cassian Andor's template type is "Tough Native", I guess.

4th episode available. This is where the fun begins Laughing

ISB HQ on Coruscant.
Senators surrounded by spies.
Mon Mothma and her...

To sum up. Being a kid, my SW RPG looked and felt like OT and PT (heroic and optimistic).

Now, when I returned to retcon/fix my players past and beginning, it does and feel like Andor and R1.

PS. I watched 4th episode with my wife.

Luthen: Set for Aldhani.
Fondor: Droid Mod: Calculating for Aldhani.

I said: look honey, now they will need few moments to calc.....
Quote:
Fondor Droid Mod: Calculations complete.
Hyperdrive engages

What the???!!! You know, ehm, he must have had an AI with superb skill in astrogation installed to provide data for the navcomp in few seconds

So yes, Luthen is rich and always prepared. Very cool AI. I think pricing can be determined by using droid skill programing/purchase cost.

My family had watched the first episode a few days ago, and then we watched the second and third tonight. I like it (especially after the third episode), but my wife and son don't seem to care for it much.

I still haven't seen the fourth episode.
