Silly Criminals, if they’d taken the TIE-fighter instead of the jet, everything would have been fine.
TIE fighters don’t have life support, so you can’t fly them over 15k feet without a pressurised suit, or you’ll risk suffering hypoxia. Additionally, they’re only rated to carry one person, which is less than the vast majority of even the smallest General Aviation airplanes.
Who is “the other guy.”
I should have ended that sentence with a question mark, not a period.
If the previous telling of this tale is any indication (specifically p=481), then it’s likely Synthcore.
