During his smuggling career,Lcareer, Lando made use of such communication systems to coordinate rendezvous with other smugglers and contraband buyers, because few Imperials would ever think to scan for such primitive transmissions. The fact that he gave Tendra one of radio transmitters proves to be vitally important, allowing her to pass on information about about the incoming Sacorrian fleet.

Said assault commander proceeds to find it ''hilarious'' when when Thrackan gets ''shot down by the children'', despite his own life being equally at risk when their ship went down.]]

** [[spoiler:This also causes the downfall of the Selonian Overden. They held all the advantages over their small, poorly-equipped rebel adversaries...but even their own soldiers turned against the Overden when it was revealed that they had even ''indirectly'' collaborated with Thracken, because harming your own kin is the most despicable act imaginable to a Selonian.]]

It's one of the few EU series to deal with these implications, and to make use of plausible and frankly terrifying superweapons since they are based solely on the LostTechnology of NeglectfulPrecursors twisted to nefarious ends, rather than yet another newly-designed or discovered Imperial project.

Also, the shot that targeted the uninhabited system still had the highest death toll simply because [[spoiler:the power storage battery had been converted into living space in ages past]].

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Once Thrackan [[spoiler:captures the children]], he chooses to turn off the communications jamming (even though he knows this will allow the masterminds being the plot to lower the interdiction field and enter the system) so that [[spoiler:[[IHaveYourWife he can broadcast images of them]] [[{{Blackmail}} to coerce Han and Leia]] [[AnOfferYouCantRefuse into complying with his demands]]]]. The results? Bringing down the communications blackout allows Ossilege to get in touch with [[spoiler:Ackbar]] to set up a BigDamnHeroes fleet; seeing Thrackan [[spoiler:[[ThisIsUnforgivable threaten his own flesh and blood]]]] [[DefectorFromDecadence turns the Corellian system against him]]; Han is galvanized by the broadcast to deliver a ReasonYouSuckSpeech to the Selonian Overden [[TrueCompanions on behalf of Dracmus]], eventually resulting in the latter standing up to the former and instituting a HeelFaceTurn for all of Selonia (and this in turn provides the instruction manual for the repulsor that helps save the day from the Starbuster); and knowing [[spoiler:the children are in danger and will either be held prisoner indefinitely or killed depending on Leia's answer]], Ebrihim and his Aunt Marcha urge an escape...one that ends with the children shooting Thrackan down in the ''Falcon'', his capture, ''and'' the capture of the Drall repulsor. All of this is lampshaded by the chapter names where the events are set in motion: "Casting the Stone" and "The Ripples Spread".
