    He means earlier, when Sally called in on what was probably an open line to call in the air strike.

    Ah, well that didn't happen either if I remember correctly. That was decided by that Rebel intelligence officer after getting Cassian's report through a (presumably) secure channel. And then Cassian tried calling it off as to not get Jyn killed off.

    20 goons seems like more than enough to take on a huge military base, right?

    Depends. Do they shoot better than Stormtrooper Academy graduates?

    Whoa. Major continuity error. Jim wasn't there at the start of Episode III. It was just Annie, Ben and Pete.

    That's not a continuity error, Jim is trying to take credit for a (bad) plan that worked.
    That's why Annie is saying "You didn't even [come up with that plan]. You weren't even [there when it happened.]"

    On another note, was anybody else surprised how short the flashback was? I hoped we'd get to see the escape scene.

    I guess yes, since this is the first comment in two weeks.
    I found the comic somewhere during Episode 1. It was great because the prequel are a pile of utter poodoo.

    Then around came the OT. Those movies were great, and while the comic was still good, the discrepancy wasn't as huge anymore. And the same applies for RO I guess...

    It's still good, it's just that the source material was also good.

    Since it Rouge One instead of Rogue One, it makes me wonder if Moulin Rouge exists in that universe?

    Oh, thanks, I didn't notice that! So Rogue One became Rouge One. I suppose Jim must be getting his overpowdered characters from the Tomb of Battle supplement, since that's where the Rouge comes from.

    Regarding the "does Mon Mothma know that Leia is Vader's daughter" question by aurilee - in both Newcanon and Legends, a point was made that she didn't know.

    So, Bail appearing to be keeping it a secret from her here, doesn't seem too out of character.

    Life Day! That's a long callback! We saw Jim invent it less than 100 pages into Episode I. It was mentioned again in episode III.

    Can confirm. As someone who has a near-Christmas birthday, it's a pain. Just one year, I'd like it so everyone isn't busy with seasonal-related activities to do anything, thanks.
    Well, I'll show them, eventually. I'll show them alllllll!

    My sisters and daughter have birthdays right after Christmas. My sisters were always pretty bummed about it.

    My step-sister's birthday is Christmas. I'm her favorite because I'm the only one who actually remembers it each year.

    After a few too many arguments about who was or was not caught in an AoE, I adore them.

    Keybounce, have you ever held a glass or a cup such that most of the cup was under water without the lip going below the water line?

    Not with a water permeable cup he likely hasn't.

    Problem is, anyone who can imitate the sound of a snake can get in to the Chamber of Secrets. You don't need to have the innate ability to speak Parseltongue to do it (see Ron in Deathly Hallows). In the Star Wars galaxy, a lot of droids can probably speak Parseltongue, making the Chamber's security really weak.

    Man, this is just piling more and more resources into a single fight.

    I can't even remember the movie well enough to recall this scene as it was filmed.

    And this is why the Rebels haven't won yet, regarding aurilee's commentary last strip. The Empire (especially the Clones) may be decidedly less than competent, but the non-PC Rebels aren't much better... as we've seen every time they have a meeting.

    @Keybounce's commentary:

    I believe that campaign recap is exactly what is happening. The comment Pete makes a couple strips ago "Yeah, actually, this we weren't expecting" makes it pretty clear that they were not receiving this information in real time. We're getting the whole campaign in order for the benefit of Corey.

    I took Pete's comment as sarcasm, but that makes more sense.

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.
