Episode 2208: We Did it All for the Love of Glory


Supporting characters can be just that: supportive. If the hero has a plan, they hop to it!

Or they could be sensible.

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

From what I remember, ejection seats are used to ensure that the pilot survives a disabled or damaged vehicle. And that most droids in Star Wars seem to be treated as valuable, but still disposable, things. So if anyone would have an ejection seat (or more likely for a spaceship, an escape pod), it'd be Allan. All of this is technically moot to Jim's question however as astromech droids lack the means to actually sit in a seat.

If this didn't feel like the end of the movie round two, I'd suspect that the GM would throw a lot more things at Allan to make it more of a challenge. He's just asking for trouble here, and not in the "I made the previous fights too easy" way that Pete did.

Hm. And I just noticed that the X-Wing wings are closed up in the middle there. Is there too thin a space coming up or something? I'd thought that besides looking cooler, X-Wings needed to have the wings out when they were fighting.


Allan: Here’s the plan. I’ll fly in through the explosion breach and blast a bunch of stuff!
Jessika Pava: Want us to cover you?
Allan: Nah.
[SFX]: Pow!
Ello Asty: I’m hit!
[SFX]: Kaboom!
Jessika Pava: Are you sure?
Allan: Sure I want all the credit!
[SFX]: zooooomm...
BB-8: How about you guys pull up and draw some of those PIEs away?
Niv Lek: Copy that, BB-8! Good luck!
[SFX]: zooooomm...
[SFX]: Pow! Pow!
Allan: Nice thinking.
BB-8: Yeah, that should ease the pressure on us a bit.
Allan: I mean making sure they don’t steal our glory.
Allan: Do you have an ejection seat, by the way?
BB-8: No!
