In last week’s episode of Star Wars Resistance, we discovered the First Order is collaborating with pirates. In response to that, I wrote a follow-up article about why the First Order wants the Colossus.
In “The Triple Dark,” the goal of the pirates was to render the Colossus inoperable. Had they been successful, we imagine this would have forced Captain Imanuel Doza to contact someone for assistance. After all, that’s what Kragan Gorr, the pirate leader, meant when he said, “Pretty soon, Doza will be begging you to take control of the Colossus.”
We’ve seen tactics like this before going all the way back to the Separatists in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. One good example takes place on the planet Pantora. The Trade Federation creates a blockade, isolating the people from the rest of the Republic. This makes the Pantoran people upset because the Senate seems unsympathetic to their situation. That’s when Count Dooku steps in and offers aid to the planet if they join the Separatist Alliance.
