    "Lucky Hazz Obloobitt"?

    I haven't finished it yet, but is that a reference to Has Obitt from Catalyst?

    He was actually recruited to join the Rebellion way before - it is shown in Rebels Season 3 "The Antilles Extraction" episode. He is recruited by Fulcrum - something we learned from the first "Aftermath" book - who was actually Agent Kallus, and extracted by Sabine Wren.

    I didn't see Biggs but will check again. We know in the deleted scenes he is hanging out in Tosche Station but I don't know if they are considered canon.

    And so true about SKB: I saw a post from StarWars.com where they say it was a small planet where the Jedi went to get their kyber crystals - Illum?

    I could have sworn Wedge was mentioned by name during the battle. I'm going to see it again and will pay better attention. I think it was "cut the chatter wedge" said by Red 1. I thought that it was cool since he tells him in ANH to cut the chatter but calls him Red 2. I thought at the time it must be a cut from ANH and they went with Red 2 instead of wedge but they added the dialogue into RO.

    About him being shocked by the size of the death star it was unclear to me if any of the rebel fleet saw it. No one says anything about it during the battle other than something big came out of hyperspace. It was not used to engage the Rebel fleet either, it only fired on the surface. If Wedge did see it, he may not have been that close to it. The size of it may have been much more impressive when he is flying his X-wing straight at it and not just seeing it from the distance.

    This movie did create some continuity issue for ANH. One is from the opening crawl of ANH. The crawl says the Rebel Alliance just achieved a major victory against the Empire. It didn't look like a major victory to me at all. Yes they got the plans but I would say the lost the battle. It doesn't show how many Rebel ships made it out, but the big Mon Cal cruiser didn't. Yes they destroyed two Star Destroyers but at best it was a draw. I say a loss as everyone on the surface is killed, so are the Empire's troops but that was done by the Death Star and not the Rebels.

    i would say the victory was in stealing the plans and getting ahead of the Death Star threat. even if they lost more ships/assets than the Empire did during the battle, the outcome definitely favored the Rebels. prior to the battle most of the Rebel council flat out dismissed any calls for an open conflict which means this was the first true success of their military campaign. despite losing a number of ships and all that, several fighters in that battle obviously survive to fight again at Yavin. at any rate, they proved that fighting the Empire was a valid option and something they could actually accomplish.

    It is. It's still a common name. Pablo has confirmed that Wedge Antilles and Capt. Antilles are 2 different people with no relatation. I believe he said it on one of the Rebel Recon episode that had Wedge in SW Rebels

    Hmm, that's true. The exact text is this:

    "Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire.

    During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet."

    I guess, as DarthPilkington said, the "victory" could refer to the fact that the plans were secured at all, since that was the purpose of the mission. Or, perhaps since it doesn't say "major victory", it could simply be taking into account the fact that the Empire saw a lot of destruction on Scarif, including but not limited to several AT-AT walkers, at least 2 Star Destroyers, the life of Orson Krennic, countless foot soldiers and starfighters, the planetary shield, and the base itself. It wasn't a good day for anyone, really, and as far as the Rebels go, they might just have to count that as a victory.

    Those opening crawls are just Rebel propaganda anyway. (stormy 3)

    I guess it's a point of view thing. Prior military and I don't think we would have called that a major victory.

    given that the Rebels were out gunned, out manned, and complete underdogs in this engagement, i would say it was a pretty stunning victory that completely caught the Empire flat footed. obviously they didn't rout the Imperial forces or make it out of the battle without a scratch, but i think considering the circumstances they definitely won.

    I'm not trying to argue with you at all. It was a draw at best or a slight victory for the Empire. From earlier in the movie it appears the fleet was all the Rebels had and they lost most of it. The Empire has a massive war machine that was not even dented.

    I agree it was a victory in the sense that they fought and got the plans but it was not a military victory. I suppose the real victory is that they fought an open conflict and where not completely destroyed by the Empire. When I read the crawl from ANH the victory achieved was not what I was picturing. Sure the Rebels should have had losses but in order for it to be a military victory the other side has to withdraw or have been defeated and that didn't happen. In my mind they have created a slight continuity issues. This is just my opinion. I see how it could be viewed as a victory but that is not what I had in my mind when I read it.

    For a relatively small rebel group to do that much damage and steal important plans, that is a "major victory".

    There were a couple soundtrack "easter eggs" I noticed in the movie. They were subtle maybe 10 sec little bits that were beyond the usual call backs to the main themes from the OT. I am going to see it again tonight and specifically look at the time so I can tell everyone exactly where they are at.

    Technically, the T-16 is a ship while the T-17 is implied to be some kind of a rife. T-15s are a type of weapon in the Legends setting, so they could have pulled them over.

    Another "not really" easteregg, they've outfitted the Y-Wings with hyperdrives. The first Y-Wing ships the rebels got their hands on had no hyperdrives (I think they had been removed by Admiral Thrawn, iirc). Can be seen in the first episode of season 3 of Star Wars Rebels.
    Another small detail, the Hammerhead ship which rammed the Star Destroyer has 4 rear engines, while the Hammerheads in Rebels had only 3.
