“I find your lack of faith disturbing.”

In the Death Star conference-room scene portion of the book, we discover whose seat was vacant during that meeting — the same moment where Darth Vader chokes Admiral Motti and says the famous “I find your lack of faith disturbing — where we also learn in the Admiral’s short story, that he files an HR complaint about that incident, which I find to be rather amusing.

Anyways, the chair is empty because it belongs to none other than Director Orson Krennic, who had just died days before on Scarif, during the events of Rogue One. We also get his final moments played out in the book, where he muses that Tarkin will soon experience a similar fate, right before he is blasted away by a single laser emission by the Super Weapon.

Yoda wanted to train “another Skywalker.”

The Skywalker twin Yoda wants to train is Luke’s sister, Leia, who he believes is ready to become a Jedi, unlike the boy. He, no doubt, believes that Leia is more grounded, has a more serious mind, and has much more experience against the Empire, which you can learn more about in the novel Leia: Princess of Alderaan.

The wise Jedi believes that Luke displays too many of his father, Anakin’s, characteristics. He believes the boy is too rash, reckless, impatient, adventurous, and that he does not have a serious enough mind, like his sister, which is why he is apprehensive to train the boy.
