Ahead of the series’ October debut, Disney XD is releasing a ton of new footage from the upcoming series Star Wars: Rebels. The latest? A sneaky mission into an Imperial compound.

The clip follows the sassy Rebel punk Sabine (Tiya Sircar) — hey, we didn’t write the terrible, archetypal character descriptions — who sneaks into an Imperial base to create a distraction for her pals on the Ghost ship. Her strategy? Start slinging some graffiti to get the attention of the stormtroopers while leaving behind an explosive surprise.

Much as with the last clip we saw from this series, we’re starting to get a feel for the tone of the would-be Clone Wars replacement. Once again, we’re left a bit underwhelmed, as the whole clip just seems a bit silly and widely drawn. But we have to admit the action looks solid.

The series is scheduled to premiere in October 2014 with a one-hour pilot on Disney Channel. After that, it’ll relocate to its permanent home at Disney XD. Check out the clip below and let us know what you think:
