    In Legends, maybe. Not in real life and not in the official storyline. The first time we saw one dreadnaught was in Rebels. A Disney production.

    This is headcannon being used to post-justify Holdo's terrible leadership. Nowhere in the movie or the novelization are we led to believe Holdo is keeping the plan quiet because she believes there's a spy. If there was a spy they would have informed the First Order of the plan as soon as they boarded the transports. On top of that we have multiple people who realistically should know the plan go along with the mutiny: Lieutenant Connix who is on the bridge the entire time but somehow doesn't know of the plan, Rose Tico who is apparently their top engineer based on the Rose Tico comic, should have known that the transports were being fueled and Poe Dameron, who despite being demoted by Leia is the highest ranked of the Raddus's surviving officers following the bridge being destroyed.

    Not to mention that the entire plan was hinged on the First Order not bothering to scan for cloaked ships when the Resistance fleet flew within transport distance of a habitable planet, nope nothing suspicious about that at all after hours of flying through deep space.


    The beam laser wasn't weak. It one shot the door.
    For miniaturized Death Star tech that's super weak when we see the same miniaturized tech in the next movie destroy an entire planet.
    RJ didn't set up their doom and then relieve the tension of it. What he did was have Poe make the (right) decision to flee, with the information he had - which didn't include Luke showing up.
    No, at this point fleeing was the wrong decision, he had no way of knowing Luke was going to show up to save them or that there was a back way out of the base. At this point Poe is entirely motivated by fear of losing more people under his command and getting another dressing down for it.

    As for Poe "needing" to destroy the Dreadnaught....no. The plan, as agreed upon, was to jump to hyperspace and flee, but Poe felt the need to destroy the Dreadnaught cause it was too big a trophy for him to pass up. If they couldn't trace through hyperspace, again, that plan would have worked, and the bombers would have been intact and fine. They obviously didn't know that they could be tracked, but they had the best plan for what they knew. He only "saved" them inadvertently, by complete fucking accident, because had the Dreadnaught come out on the other side of the hyperspace jump, it would have been able to easily destroy the fleet, unlike the other ships.
    Destroying the dreadnaught was always the plan. The bombers were already sortied when Poe was attacking the dreadnaught, he was destroying the point defense cannons specifically so the bombers could attack, then mid-operation Leia decided to change the plan. The bombers and the fleet would have been lost if they called off the attack at this point, the dreadnaught's cannons would have been ready to shoot at the Raddus before those slow ass bombers made it back to the ships.

    Providence-Class is Grievous Flagship in the Battle of Coruscant, at the opening of Revenge of the Sith. It bears a striking resemblance to Dreadnoughts in the X-Wing/TIE Fighter Games. The only thing they added was the conning tower and an elongated nose.

    Ah. Mkay. So, a joke in maybe poor taste and way to much fuzz about it.

    My man is clearly having fun and people want to get all serious because he used some colorful language.

    From what I can gather, these shippers are.....well, weird.

    Thanks for the advanced explanation. I'd agree that the kiss was weird, but on the other side, felt natural. People take these things way to serious.

    Edit: Happy new Year to y'all!

    I mean, Rey and Ben had chemistry. Rey and Finn . . . not so much.

    Was Rey and Ben's relationship in any respect healthy? Fuckno. If you thought there was a Happily Ever After in their cards, you were fooling yourself.

    But seriously; the idea that a female character has to get with someone in the series is an idea that should just fucking die. It's not quite as bad for male characters, but it certainly applies there, too. It's fine for a character to be single and not meet anyone interesting while more important shit is going on, in pretty much every genre but romance and romantic comedies, and only not there because meeting that someone interesting is the "important shit going on". Shipping is as gross and unnecessary as all the thirsty male fans of shit who respond to any female presence with "show bob and vagene" and such. Stop pushing your fetishes on an undesiring public.

    Yeah every movie should follow in the rocks lead and never have romance in films. More time for action ^^ I wonder why that is btw. Does he look weird kissing ladies with his big bald head and raised eye brow?

    Plus that way you dont risk putting off the 12 year old boy market.
    Comes a time when we all gotta die...even kings.

    That was known when he said he was the cause behind the leak. Assuming that story was true, any company would let you go.

    I'm not even sure the kiss was anything romantic. He just sacrificed his life for hers. Could have easily been a kiss of gratitude. Also his parents and Luke were basically her surrogates...I don't think the kiss is what made her feel like a Skywalker.

    Happy New Year!!!!

    He was the source of a script being found and almost sold on Ebay, it's not known who the source of the Jedi Paxis leaks was, but it doesn't make sense for them to be the same if the person wanted to make a profit off selling the script.

    Batman and Robin is the perfect batman film if it came out just after the Adam West series ended. Seriously it's pretty much that era batman with a good budget.

    Or we go by prior to Disney buyout what Lucas said about star wars was word of God. Aka what he said goes as with all ownwrs/creators. He said EU isn't canon then it isn't canon.

    Post Disney buyout Disney gets 100% word of God on the issue as new owners and creators of what came out since. What they say is/isn't canon is the only ones who get to say.

    Sorry, not to nitpick too much, 'cause I agree with pretty much everything you are pointing out, but just wanted to note a difference in the lasers. For one, those Star Destroyers are 2400 meters long, so those underbelly Mini-Superlasers (axial superlaser) are substantially larger than the laser they brought to Crait, which was only 200m, and those axial superlasers would have access to a substantially larger power source within the hull of the Star Destroyer than the superlaser on Crait had.

    Which is exactly what I'm doing. I'm choosing to ignore disney wars and look at it as a very high budget but very low quality what if storyline. That said I can still critique the movies which is what I'm doing.

    When Lucas handed over Star Wars to Disney and Kathleen Kennedy he called the EU a "treasure trove" of material that they expected to be the source of many movies to come, with Kennedy vowing to protect that material. So while Lucas always said the EU wasn't his story, and Lucasfilm noted Lucas wasn't bound by the EU when creating the prequels, I don't think Lucas ever said "it's not canon", and it's clear he expected Disney to keep the EU and his characters as they were.
