    A good guy yep it seems that way he has bounced between good & bad for most of his career, that would be interesting if she discovered he was involved in the superweapon's creation that would probably give her reason to accept the mission, I think is ''is that clear'' quote was given to her should she divert from the mission to rescue him but I don't want that happen.

    ,,Horrified by the results of his work, he tips off the Rebels about the weapon’s existence, leading Mon Mothma to recruit his daughter to recover the plans for the space station."
    I will be a bit dissapointed if thats the stroy. I was rather hoping for Galen to be a loyal imperial leading to a confrontation with his daughter...

    Mads has stated from the beginning that he was playing a good guy.

    That always seems to be the way, the secrets of the weapon's cause a member to go rogue that often happened during this period, what if he is loyal to the empire & hopes his daughter would change sides but then decides his daughter is his future.

    Thanks for the info, I didnt know that. However, if thats the case this movie most likely won't be anything special. A Jyn/Galen ideological conflict would've been a good driving force to the story imo. Hopefully it won't turn out to be a chlised good guys beat the bad guys story...

    Its been said the good guys are bad and the bad guys are good. The moral lines are supposedly blurred in this movie.

    Given that Jyn has apparently been "on her own" from 15, then I'm guessing that they likely won't have the warmest/closest/smoothest relationship in this film. And it's not like "daddy issues" haven't been a REALLY common narrative device in SW films before. So that being the case here as well wouldn't be at all surprising. Maybe she ran away at a young age due to disagreements, or maybe he walked out on his family and now regrets it, or maybe they were involuntarily separated, etc.

    I hope that the rumors about him end up being true. An Imperial who helped to create a WMD essentially, but then had major regrets/remorse about it and is trying to "make things right" now. Basically the SW version of Robert Oppenheimer. And he seeks out the help of his (possibly estranged) daughter. That could be interesting.

    And just because they're both on the "good side" doesn't mean that there won't be conflict between them. And really that other option sounds a little too much like the Luke/Vader dynamic anyway.

    I don't think the yuzhan Vhong would have created anything like the Death Star since from what I've been told about them, they just want to go to war with everyone .

    the Yuuzhan Vong created far worse weapons than the death star.

    Yeah but I meant in regards to the Death Star like weapons because the SW universe would have been in a much worse place otherwise .
