While this is true, it is also a narrative. One of the main reasons Nazi Germany lost WW2 is due to a fuel shortage, but that doesn’t show up in hardly any war story because it’s not as compelling as the idea that the Allies took them down through force (which is also true.)
Because these people are
Because the people you’re fighting are possibly literally the only people left in the galaxy that can directly oppose you, so the trade off is more than worth it. Not to mention that the Resistance is unarmed anyway, so the First Order isn’t risking a thing.
I’d argue it’s not a fix at all. If the difference is just them getting blasted out of the sky after the spy was in the transport instead of before, that makes no difference at all. Holdo’s actions caused a mutiny, and endangered the plan far more than her just telling the officers the plan would have.
Yes, but the reasoning is rediculous.
It’s ridiculous for exactly this reason. You’re telling me that the Resistance can justify sending Fin and Rose to CB, and has the fuel to support multiple escape pods, but can’t use that fuel to support their cruiser?
Sure, but if it took that much time for the Supremacy to fuel up and get there, why would the Resistance not take the opportunity to fuel the ships in the first place?
Also, if the Star Destroyers had more fuel, would it not still be better for one of them to jump to hyperspace to come up ahead of the Resistance, and then jump back? That doesn’t seem unreasonable in a world where Han Solo can hyperspace directly onto Starkiller Base.
