Star Wars Gamer #6
Rebel Bass
by Kathy Tyers

Published by Wizards of the Coast

Scott's Rating:   2 out of 4

This short story was published in the Star Wars Gamer magazine. It takes place some time during the classic trilogy.

Ryley Ancum is the bass player in a band. But secretly, he's also a spy for the Rebellion. He transmits secret messages to spies in the audience through notes he plays during songs. However, the Empire is slowly tracking down the spy network. Believing the band to be innocent, they place a secret agent in the group to try and track down the source of the leaks. Little do they know that Ryley is the one they're looking for. How can Ryley warn the others without the Imperial spy catching on?


    The concept of spies transmitting messages through musical notes is a clever one. Tyers does a good job of creating an up and coming band that many young readers can identify with.


    I couldn't get into this story at all. I like short stories that have a bit of action in them and ones that help expand on the movies. This story is neither. In fact, there's very little Star Wars related in this story at all. It could have been set anywhere. The story also jumps around a bit and is confusing at times. The Imperial spy in the picture also looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger. How would that guy fit into a Star Wars grunge band?


    Since this was a bounty hunters issue, maybe they should have had a bounty hunter story, eh?
