Part 5 of my Lego-retelling of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
About this creation
Departing for Scarif
"Rogue One, pulling away." - Bodhi Rook
Frustrated at their inaction, Jyn, Cassian, K-2SO, and a number of Rebels volunteer to take matters into their own hands. The party takes the shuttle to raid the databank themselves. Before they take off, however, they are confronted by Rebel command, who asks them to identify themselves. Rook improvises a callsign of "Rogue One" before heading off to Scarif without Alliance permission.
Scarif Landing Pad
"SW-0608 proceeding to LP9 as instructed." - Bodhi Rook
Once Rogue One arrives at Scarif, they begin to transmit a clearance code, praying that it has not been listed as overdue. Fortunately, the code is valid. The team enter the shield gate and head to the planet below. Briefly before starting the mission, Jyn speaks to the squad in an effort to inspire them, emphasizing that despite clearly being outnumbered, anything is possible with the element of surprise on their side. Cassian debriefs the men and orders them to attack the troops as a distraction so they can gain entry to the Citadel and find the plans. Arriving at Scarif, Rogue One jumps the inspection team and steals their uniforms. Jyn and Cassian masquerade as the inspection team and gain entrance to the Citadel with K-2SO in tow.
"Melshi, Pao, Baze, Chirrut, you'll take main squad, move east and get wide of the ship. Find a position between here and the tower. Once you get to the best spot, light the place up. Make ten men feel like a hundred." - Cassian Andor
Whilst Jyn, Cassian, and K-2SO infiltrate the citadel, the remaining members of Rogue One sneak around the various landing pads on Scarif and plant explosives. Their goal is to create the biggest distraction possible.
"Our optimal route to the data vault places only 89 stormtroopers in our path. We will make it no more than 33% of the way before we are killed." - K-2SO
K-2SO hacks into the memory banks of another security droid stationed at the citadel. Based on the information he discovers, he is less than optimistic regarding the group's chance of success. Cassian contacts the Rebels spread across the beach and orders them to detonate their explosives, to cause a distraction.
Battle of Scarif
"Are we blind? Deploy the garrison!" - Director Krennic
The members of Rogue One on the beach detonate the explosives they have planted, which draws the attention of the Imperial garrison. Whilst they engage the enemy, both Governor Tarkin in the Death Star, and Rebel command on Yavin, are informed of the battle, and send their forces to Scarif. On the ground, Bodhi helps the Rebels gain an advantage by sending misinformation to the citadel control tower. Unfortunately, the Imperials deploy walkers and force the Rebels to retreat.
