The “your squad” seems to be is his lonely bum in your awesome cut, until we see more small fighters in the background.
Heh, good catch! I did play with this a bit and ended up deciding to put the cut where it is because that was where it cuts back to Poe in his cockpit in the theatrical, making Leia’s voice sound like it’s coming in over his comms. What I imagined it as is: Leia’s saying “great job, you bought us enough time to get all the transports back, so now we don’t have to bring your bombing squad up to continue the attack on the dreadnought” and instead of doing what TLJ Poe does and ignoring her he just… follows orders, heh.
I’ll make a note and see if I can’t have a bit more of a play with it for V3, though! Thanks again for your suggestions 😃
