    Question that has been eating me...

    So, this guy pretty much created the Death Star...
    So, he knows the station inside out...

    But he needs someone to go and STEAL the plans?

    Why? Just tell them about the exhaust port, man! You designed the whole thing!

    Have I understood something wrong here? :confused:

    Nice manip there, but I don't see Thrawn creating something like the Death Star. Ever. The guy had more refine taste, more artistic and there's nothing artistic about the Death Star. Ya feel me?

    From my understanding, he has not designed it. That were the Genosians some 21 years before and whoever was involved back then.

    But they never managed to get the super weapons laser right, so Galen Erso was set on the task to re-design and complete the battle station. Afterwards, he realized what kind of devise he helped to create with his master mind. And was kind of shocked.

    So maybe he a) possibly sneak in the weakness of the exhaust port in the plans and b) contacted the Rebellions and/or his daughter to get hold of the plans.

    Thanks @Viral Hide for bringing this up! I just add it here for the reason of completeness on Galen’s story.

    Synopsis of the novel 'Catalyst' by James Luceno

    War is tearing the galaxy apart. For years the Republic and the Separatists have battled across the stars, each building more and more deadly technology in an attempt to win the war. As a member of Chancellor Palpatine’s top secret Death Star project, Orson Krennic is determined to develop a superweapon before their enemies can. And an old friend of Krennic’s, the brilliant scientist Galen Erso, could be the key.

    Galen’s energy-focused research has captured the attention of both Krennic and his foes, making the scientist a crucial pawn in the galactic conflict. But after Krennic rescues Galen, his wife, Lyra, and their young daughter, Jyn, from Separatist kidnappers, the Erso family is deeply in Krennic’s debt. Krennic then offers Galen an extraordinary opportunity: to continue his scientific studies with every resource put utterly at his disposal. While Galen and Lyra believe that his energy research will be used purely in altruistic ways, Krennic has other plans that will finally make the Death Star a reality. Trapped in their benefactor’s tightening grasp, the Ersos must untangle Krennic’s web of deception to save themselves and the galaxy itself.

    I love that plot...feeling "guiltY" to help the bad guys and then being betrayed by your own "friend" or choosing what causes betrayal if any at all from Galen's end after finding out that Krennic is after his own daughter and her friends and choosing to do the "right" thing...it sounds partially similar to ROTS but it's really awesome.
