Re: EpDis: Deathwalker

It would make a lot of sense if, as a condition of losing the war, they were confined to their home planet and a blockade set up. That would be very logical.

Re: EpDis: Deathwalker

Even better than a villian you can hate is a villian that has a personaility and doesn't see themselves as evil. Of course acting that can be difficult.

Gave this one a B, simply because it's very, very good, but not as great as some later ones.
