device render

every time the inner cynic in me starts questioning if we’ve set our hopes too high about a canon force bond, i remember that that’s literally the only possible way Kylo will find them on Ahch-To.

think about it. the ENTIRE PLOT of TFA revolved around the First Order being unable to locate Luke or Ahch-To. they tried everything; there’s nowhere left to look and no other information for them to find. so what’s changed since TFA? 

Rey is there.

all logic dictates that Rey is the key to Kylo finding Ahch-To at long last. and the only way for that to work from across the galaxy is through their mysterious connection.

In 2003, Harris Corporation unveiled the Stingray, a sleeker, smaller version of Rohde & Schwarz’s earlier model, and it came with an aggressive push into the US market. Intelligence agencies began using them overseas to surveil targets or identify their devices. US Marshals put Stingrays in planes and flew them over cities, collecting tens of thousands of phone numbers in search of a single fugitive’s phone. Over time, the devices trickled down to local police departments, where they could be used to track down anyone from murderers to purse-snatchers.

But purchasing the device came with a catch. Every time an agency bought a device from Harris, they signed an agreement to keep it out of public court records. If Stingray methods were ever entered into evidence, Harris argued, criminals would catch on, rendering the device useless. Agencies still got court orders to use the devices, but they usually looked like a vaguely worded request for phone records. In most cases, the judges never knew what they were signing and defendants never knew how they’d been caught.

—  Daniel Rigmaiden, incarcerated for tax fraud (he made money by filing tax returns for the recently deceased) uses the scant resources at his disposal to prove the existence of Stingrays, a previously-secret tool of law enforcement, used to track cellphones. We wrote a bit about Stingrays in the book, but they’d still have been secret if it wasn’t for this guy!
