[Spoilers for Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One.]
My roommate loves military sci-fi. One criticism he often levels at Star Wars is that it’s ridiculous that Han and Lando are given generalships after their short stints with the Alliance. I don’t agree with him because I think he’s missing some fundamental points about Star Wars:
- In Star Wars, heroes are often created by accident or coincidence.
- Star Wars heroes are combat monsters.
- The Rebel Alliance literally cannot survive without relying on outside recruits.
- Star Wars is making a point about trust.
