Three of those cards (A New Hope, Wookiee Navigator, Rebel Trooper) are pretty fantastic. Fall Back! has great synergy with Leia, and False Lead is worth 2 Force icons in an edge battle. I think there are far worse pods. Like, for instance, Rumors.

The Espo and Ewok sets.  What makes them particularly useless is the '1 Per' limit on them, as that nullifies the entire point of a strategy using them.

The Espo set is fantastic. I run it in my Trooper deck, and I wouldn't swap it out for anything. 5 copies of the Espo Trooper means you don't need doubles for consistency, and the ability to play a surprise Espo or Death Star Trooper as a defender can be pretty clutch.

Ewoks do suck, though.

Ewoks aren't that terrible. I used one to force my opponent to keep their Devastator at home instead of defending with it.

Fall back could also be useful for a super extra focused home one so you can use it again next turn or for ackbar….1 hit to everyone again….and they'll now it and fear it!!!

Also, new hope after your last attack (and edge battle) could get your opp hand with no new things before their turn having to actually discard to their reserve value….pretty awesome (besides being the wildfire assault of starwars….agot reference)

I think I'm on the Ewok wagon.

At this point, I would also have to say the Ewok objective is the worst. That or Rumors at the Cantina.

Rumors isn't that bad. I've used it to my advantage before. Remember that the sympathiser lowers any card by 1, and lets you ignore resource match requirements. It's a way to get that Han out in your Jedi or Rebel deck if you just didn't draw this objective or Questionable, and yet have the 4 to spend, or a swindled at the right moment to ruin your opponents day.

I'm on board with the Tribal Support being my least favorite. Until more Ewok objectives are released (come on Endor cycle), I just don't see the potential yet.

No objective set is "the worst." As prev. comments have shown, they all have their usefulness in the right deck, synergy being everything with how deckbuilding works in this game. That said, Fleeing the Empire is the best objective set.

I agree here, but for the sake of staying true to the thread, Rumors is pretty bad.

Those Furry Maneaters on the Jungle planet get a second place vote. Eventually they will get better, Rumors I don't see that happening.

The problem with Rumors is that 4 out of 5 cards in it are geared towards ignoring resource match requirements, plus the objective itself. That's complete overkill. The Imperial one is far better, since it comes with only 2 Dark Alliance for those tight spots where your resources in play don't let you drop what you need, and that's enough of a backup to your objectives. Then you get It's Worse, which is a pretty solid little magic bullet with 2 Force icons, and 2x Probe Droid, which is an insanely good card. Sure, it's not that amazing in play, but the ability to play it from your discard pile is almost like increasing your hand size by 1 for each copy you pull.

"False Lead" is one of my favourite pictures - I wish it was an Imperial card! So cool - Imperial Stormtroopers picking through the wreckage of an abandoned Rebel control room.

Even the Objective sets that are "weak" due to not having any of the top tier cards in them are good in the right situation, so I don't think there's really a proper answer to this question.
