Hera Described as A Better Pilot Than Poe In ‘Rebels Recon’ Recap of “Rebel Assault”

Star Wars Rebels has gone into its midseason break with the airing of its “Rebel Assault” episode last night, so a new episode of Rebels Recon has been released to recap its main events. A large part of the conversation revolves around Hera and her piloting skills, because she was the focus of the episode.

One of the more interesting tangents from Rebels Recon was one that explored the idea of which pilot from the Star Wars saga is better. The competition is between Hera and Poe Dameron, and various Lucasfilm story group editors weigh in on the topic. Let’s just say that one of them gets many more votes of confidence over the other. My personal opinion is that Hera is the better pilot, mostly because she can fly the shit out of any type of vehicle or spaceship, so while Poe is one helluva fighter pilot, Hera’s ability to fly the ghost like a fighter is what gives her the edge.

Head on up above to check out the recap.
