Hey HAL, I was just wondering — why did you change Ben’s mode of transport in the climax? 🤔

Oh, I can answer that! Previous stuff has established that standard TIE fighters don’t have hyperdrives.

The supplimental stuff retcons that this specific TIE is an experimental TIE scout with a hyperdrive, but that’s clearly a post-facto rationalization.

Hence, swapping it for something that DOES have a hyperdrive.

I see. But I don’t think the original film explains how he got off the Death Star ruins. 🤨

I mean, it’s clearly meant to be that he salvaged a TIE. I don’t really think it needs to explain more than that; the problem here is that they chose a TIE that doesn’t make any sense, not that the movie lets you realize he salvaged a TIE on your own.
