If there's any chance of building a bigger weapon, then you know PCs are going to try it. This is why there are siege engine rules in Dungeons & Dragons. ANd why many GMs have house-rules governing using a ballista as a hand-held weapon.
[Reminder: Our guest commentators have not seen Rogue One. Part of the fun is seeing how their untainted impressions re-interpret the movie through the lens of our comic.]
Chirrut can see the obvious. To blow up the Peace Moon, you need to find the plans for the Peace Moon.
The best way to actually find the plans, will be if Chirrut is the one who comes across them.
So what are all the things that could be best done ironically by a blind person?
Cassian once again showing his leadership chops (hooray!) in directing Bria/Jim towards a more reasonable objective.
I hope Chirrut gets some more action at the data facility. I've been missing Pete's antics, and while he does well as the pragmatic straight man, I like him best when he's strategising and working the numbers.
Best case scenario, Chirrut-Baze and K-2 get sent in as the first wave to clear a path and/or create a distraction so that Bria, Cassian and Bodhi can sneak in and grab the plans.
Chirrut: Or... we could go to Toprawa to check out this data facility Krennic mentioned.
Bria: Why don't we just blow up the Peace Moon?
Cassian: Chirrut's right. We need to figure out how to destroy the Peace Moon.
Bria: We shoot it with a big weapon!
Cassian: The Peace Moon is the big weapon.
Bria: We build a bigger weapon! It's like summoning a bigger fish!
Cassian: Okaaay, right. And to do that, we need to get the plans so we know how.
Chirrut: So... we go to Toprawa to check out this data facility Krennic mentioned?
