Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares for battle with the First Order.
In keeping with a long-time series tradition, the opening shot after the text crawl shows a space vehicle flying either away from or toward the screen (in this case, several Resistance transport ships fly towards the screen).
Resistance Evacuation Officer:
We're not clear yet. There are still 30 pallets of cannon shells in C bunker.
Lieutenant Connix: Forget the munitions, there's no time. Just get everyone on the transports.
Lieutenant Connix: Oh, no.
During the slow-mo chase, the rebels lost 2 or 3 support ships that ran out of fuel. It is established that the fuel for sub-light engines vs light-speed engines is separate. So why didn't they send all the support ships at the star destroyers at light speed to destroy them. The last person on board was going to die anyhow. Or why didn't the last capital ship head to the same planet to cover the shuttle retreat, there by lending cover to the shuttles? Clarification: The crews of the Ninka and the medical support ship are shown being evacuated to the Raddus before they run out of fuel, leaving them empty by the time they are destroyed. Other Star Wars media has established that jumping to hyperspace through a solid object is incredibly dangerous to any object in the vicinity, including friendly ships, due to hyper-accelerated shrapnel and the complex physics of hyperspace. Because Holdo had a plan to stealthily land on the planet Crait, which she had presumably communicated to other officers, there was at the time no need to try such a potentially disastrous maneuver, Holdo only took such a risk when the threat of total annihilation was imminent. The evacuation shuttles were already far away from the Raddus when the First Order opened fire on them, making it impossible for the Raddus - a larger, less maneuverable ship with virtually no fuel left - to have reached the shuttles before they were wiped out.
The stars that form the backdrop for the end credits are exactly the same stars as the stars from the backdrop for the end credits of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) .
