The whole thing was bad … just bad … I am glad it was removed. The concept of it was just … bad.
A Sith-supporter guy, used by Sidious, went to the wreckage of the Death Start “X” years ago, decided to make a dagger in the shape of the wreckage … and then have a little pointer that extends out and “points” to the exact spot of the wayfinder.
Remember, this is HIS dagger that HE created … for “reasons” to lead to a location he has knowledge of, that then points to a wayfinder, (which he obviously knows where it is “stored”) … so it could help navigate you to Exegol, which he came from. Must have made it in case he developed dementia and forgot how to get home?
SO yeah … the whole thing is just BAD and this helps make it LESS bad.
Granted, if there was a way to change the “translation” scene, even by using a new voice over to change the dialogue to make it more vague about the dagger’s origin and how to find the wayfinder, it would be better and still can say “The dagger will lead the way” or whatever the line is. Obviously the issue is how to make it so the crew knows to go to the DSII wreckage …
