It was "Fake Wedge" who said that.

Neat. One part I don't get is the "Scour the far reaches of the galaxy, find the Rebels..." There was no time for scouring. They had to figure out Leia's ship went to Tatooine quickly to be right behind them when they got there.

Also, Leia saying “it’s Vader” while the ship was still in hyperspace, even though it’s established that ships in hyperspace are very difficult to track (at this time.

In the radio drama Vader does track the Tantive IV, whether through the Force or maybe they just followed their hyperspace vector.

I’m aware. My point is that Leia should have had no way of knowing she was being tracked until the Devastator dropped out of hyperspace behind the Tantive IV at Tatooine.

The very first short story in the new Star Wars 40th Anniversary anthology From A Certain Point Of View was "Raymus," which takes place directly from the end of Rogue One and leads directly into the beginning of ANH. It was established in the novelization of RO that the Tantive IV had suffered battle damage from an earlier mission and that's why it had to be carried in the Profundity's docking bay; Raymus and his crew were desperately trying to get the Tantive IV spaceworthy again on the way to and during the Battle of Scarif. They had only barely managed to juryrig the hyperdrive when Darth Vader boarded the Profundity and since repairs to the hyperdrive weren't complete, the Tantive IV left a "hyperspace wake" behind them as it left Scarif. That's how Vader and the Devastator managed to track the Tantive IV to Tatooine. In fact, the Tantive IV's hyperdrive finally gave out a few parsecs away from Tatooine, giving the Devastator just enough time to catch up.

If the hyperdrive had held out just a second or two longer, the Rebels would have come out of hyperspace right above Tatooine and would have had time to scuttle the ship, get to the escape pods and gone to ground in Mos Eisly without the Imperials ever finding them. Leia would have contacted Kenobi and gotten both him and the Death Star plans to Bail Organa on Alderaan. Whether Kenobi would have opted to bring Luke along to Alderaan with him is an open question, though. It's unlikely as Uncle Owen would almost certainly have refused to let Luke go since Owen wouldn't have been murdered by stormtroopers in this scenario. And without Luke, the Death Star wouldn't have been destroyed....

That works. Thanks for sharing the short story details.

"Infinities" speculations can be fun. I have to say that Obi-Wan may have been able to destroy the Death Star. He only died when he did for the sake of Luke seeing him disappear yet still hearing his voice to demonstrate the power of the Force. But would Obi-Wan have gone with Leia and left Luke behind on Tatooine? Maybe since the Empire had a planet killer he would have, and then went back to Luke after destroying the Death Star. But without Owen and Beru dying, Luke may have stayed there at least another season. But Luke already wanted to join the Rebellion and maybe he would have wanted to train as a Jedi if he had been told his father had been one. Maybe Obi-Wan would have begun training Luke as a Jedi, and maybe Leia would have been sent to Yoda. Leia may not have wanted to go to Yoda but maybe if Bail were still alive he would have talked her into it. Or, maybe Leia would have wanted to train as a Jedi as a path to the power to help her destroy the Empire, and would have been a danger to cross over to the Dark Side in the quest for that power. Maybe Yoda, Obi-Wan, Luke and Leia as a group could have take on Vader and Emperor separately and defeated them both. But maybe if Alderaan hadn't been destroyed, a lot of planets wouldn't have been inspired to join the Rebellion and it would have been doomed.

This video has a pretty good explanation of how the U-Wing from RO made the jump to hyperspace from a gravity well....

CLICKY, CLICKY.

Girl Reacts To The End Of Rogue One

The video really captures the essence of fan reaction to Rogue One.

Very creative hobbyist film editing though.

As for the woman reacting to R1... that was pretty much me without the tears. And shorter hair.

That's me every time I watch Rogue One or this video, tears and all. But shorter hair. And I'm a dude.
