Synopsis

Mon Julpa, the king of the planet Tammuz-an visits the palace of his rival, the warrior-chieftain known as Lord Toda. Julpa wants to put an end to their age-long rivalry and offers Toda a charter of peace. Toda is suspicious of anything that Mon Julpa has to say to him, but his daughter, Gerin, supports Julpa's charter. Julpa's advisor, Sollag, is insulted by Toda's inferences and calls him a barbarian. A fight nearly breaks out, but is quickly averted when they see C-3PO getting into a scuffle with a small animal named Ingey. Peals of laughter erupt from the throne room.

Meanwhile, Jyn Obah, the first mate of the pirate Gir Kybo Ren-Cha, sneaks into the palace of Mon Julpa to rescue his captain. He uses a mini-stunner on the guards and breaks Captain Kybo free. They sneak past the remaining palace sentries by disguising themselves as natives of Tammuz-an and head for the docking bay. There they find Jann Tosh and Jessica Meade boarding their A-wing fighters. Mon Julpa returns just in time to witness the pirates' escape attempt. Jyn zaps Mon Julpa, Jann, and Gerin with the mini-stunner. Kybo grabs Gerin and steals one of the A-wings. He leaves poor Jyn behind to fend for himself.

Jyn Obah is placed into one of the palace dungeons. C-3PO and R2-D2 visit his cell and interrogate him. Fearing the feisty astromech droid, Jyn tells the two that Kybo has taken Gerin to the swamp world known as Bogden. The droids relay this information back to Jann and Jess who embark upon a rescue mission.

Some time later, Captain Kybo arrives on Bogden and holes up inside of a shipwrecked star cruiser. He radios Mon Julpa and Toda, and informs them that he will release Gerin if they agree to free all of his crew mates. Toda blames Mon Julpa for his daughter's capture and agrees to Kybo's demands. He arrests Mon Julpa with plans of sending him to Bogden along with the pirate crew.

Back on Bogden, Jann, Jess and the droids finally arrive. They split up and begin searching the various levels of the starfighter. Jess and R2 find Captain Kybo on the bridge of the ship, but he traps them inside of a force field. Kybo then picks up what might be a Beam-tube and goes off to hunt the others. Jann and 3PO find Gerin in the lower depths. She is running away from a pack of vicious animals known as Sungwas.

Meanwhile, Kybo's crew has been released from their prison cells. Jyn Obah pilots the Dianoga and travels to Bogden with Mon Julpa as a hostage. They arrive in the swamps and disembark from the ship. Kybo tells Mon Julpa that he has no intention of setting Gerin free. The King of Tammuz-an however, suspected such a betrayal. He opens the ship's cargo hold revealing Lord Toda and a full compliment of Tammuz-an warriors. A fire-fight breaks out between the warriors and the pirates, but ultimately the good guys win. Captain Kybo and his crew are captured once again.

Everyone returns to Tammuz-an where Mon Julpa and Lord Tody agree to sign the charter of peace. Jessica Meade announces that she is regrettably leaving the planet to return to Tyne's Horky. Jann and the droids wish her well.

Behind the scenes

  • This episode was released on DVD in 2004 as part of the The Pirates and the Prince feature film. It can be found on side 2 of the disc.
  • The Revenge of Kybo Ren was the eighth episode of Star Wars: Droids – The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO.
  • This episode is the fourth part of a five-episode story-arc commonly referred to as The Mon Julpa Cycle. The first four episodes were released as The Pirates and the Prince on VHS format in 1999 and on the Star Wars: Droids DVD in 2004.
  • This episode takes place at some point between 10 BBY and 5 BBY.
  • This episode is listed as production code: D8. It first aired on October 26th, 1985.
  • The English subtitles on the Star Wars: Droids DVD collection misspell Coby's name as Koby.
  • This is the first appearance of the swamp world known as Bogden. This planetary location was later mentioned by Jango Fett in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and was featured in the video game Star Wars: Bounty Hunter. This is but one of several examples of material from the Droids and Ewoks animated series being incorporated into the films.
  • The shipwrecked starship found in the swamps of Bogden bears a striking resemblance to a Klingon Bird of Prey – a ship made popular in the 1966 NBC television series, Star Trek. Whether the Droids animators intentionally designed the craft to resemble the Klingon vessel, or whether it is merely a coincidence is unknown.
  • This is the first time in the series that Tyne's Horky, the planet from "The Lost Prince", has been mentioned by name.
