    Also, it is explicitly demonstrated that, unlike a ship which can be grabbed en route with a tractor beam, the cargo is literally safely locked onto its course until it reaches its destination.

    Yup. It’s actually a lot more secure.

    Does it matter why they have trains in SW? Train heists are awesome - that's enough for me. :p

    There's a retro - almost steampunk - element to the SW universe that many people overlook, but thankfully Disney has noticed it with their films. They've may have missed some other important elements, but that was one they noticed.

    I think people get way to hung up on the “self-sacrifice” thing. The reason she sets off the charges isn’t because the heist is worth dying for, it’s because at that point the job had gone downhill (or “off the rails” if I may) and the way she saw it her options were 1) leave the bridge intact and doom the mission, which in their current position would pit them against the combined wrath of the Vipers, Enfys Nest and The Crimson Dawn and is nearly certain to result in the entire crew’s death or 2) accept her time is up and pay the penalty for failure in this business in the hopes that at least some of the rest of the crew(with an emphasis on Beckett) can make it as a result. There really isn’t a realistic option where she survives at that point so might as well try to get something out of it. On a semi-related note the shipment is definitely supposed to be top secret, and so the Empire’s plan revolves around no one knowing about it while Beckett’s plan revolves around being the only ones who know about it. In the end they both fail because that turns out not to be the case.

    People seemed to miss that she shot at the Viper droids to begin with to protect Beckett.

    Yes she did. A true love for sure. I thought the character was great. They two of them (her and Beckett) worked well together. And they almost pulled it off, the last big heist and could retire.
