I don’t like it when things don’t make sense in a story, when characters do stupid things. So, (spoiler alert) when the First Order tracked the Resistance reconnaissance ship back to their base, I thought: you’re kidding, right? Leia, who was nearly killed 30 years before on the moon of Yavin 4 because the Empire tracked the Millennium Falcon to the secret base of The Rebellion, would allow a Resistance scout ship to be tracked back to her secret hideout just to deliver a message??? No, no, no, no, no. Wouldn’t happen. Why wouldn’t it happen? Because they’ve got intra-galactic cellphones. We saw these devices used by death-gang leader, Bala-Tik, as well as agents of both The First Order and The Resistance to communicate the location of BB-8. So, if you have to get a message back to the Resistance base, why not simply phone it in? Why risk being followed by agents of the First Order?
