i actually don't recall the guavan enforcers speaking at all... not even screaming / yelling when the tentacled beastie got loose on the eravana... Although it was something of noisey firefight!Didn't they speak in code as well? Or their native tongue errr vocabulator.
They don't speak English in the movie. It is code.
I think that it's more likely encrypted communications between the Death Troopers. They appear to be a special operations group. Real world special ops units tend to utilize encrypted comms systems to keep their communications from being intercepted by hostile forces. I think the Death Troopers are doing just that.
I did appreciate some of the bits in the Ultimate Visual Guide about the Death Troopers being somewhat 'enhanced'. In a universe like that of Star Wars where you may have people with Force powers, an enhanced human soldier might be seen as an attractive option to the military of the Empire. And tying that in to the research and development of the Imperial Advanced Weapons Research division, and just how questionable their activities may be also helps to paint a picture of the Galactic Empire as a governing body that is engaged in experimentation that many would find abhorrent at best.
There's no reason whatsoever to think they "don't exist" after Rogue One.And seeing as how Krennic is dead, and Malbus & Cassian took out all of the existing troopers, it makes perfect sense as to why they wouldn't exist anymore after "R1."
True but his replacement could have decided he wanted death troopers as wellWhile all that is true, it has been stated in several sources that the Death Troopers were Krennic's personal guard. Therefore, either of our theories is plausible, but the evidence would point to there being no more.
There's one little photo of one character, thats it on the RFT's. Bunch of the pilots, officers, SpecForce Marines and some of the techs.
The book was probably already done when they changed the ending to put Vader fighting all those RFTs in there.
They do flesh out the rivalry between Tarkin and Krennic though. Reading the Visual Guide made me realize it is all about shuttle parking spaces for them lol. I guess even in a galaxy far, far, away your parking space is still the ultimate determinant of rank.Actually, Pablo Hidalgo said on Twitter that some specific things were excluded from the book because of potential spoilers. And it was Lucasfilm that stepped in to ask that certain things be withheld. Hence there's no entry for Tarkin in the Ultimate Visual Guide, either. And Tarkin does play a pivotal role in the film.
Seems to me then, that this type of stuff should be released well after the Movie.
Maybe she can organise some Bothans to get some intel on the 2nd Death Star, whenever she gets back from wherever she currently is. Also, I can't stand Ezra.I know she has her haters, but I would like to see a good fulfilling story to her. Much rather see her go on as opposed to Ezra.
