The Death Star is an awesome weapon. It can destroy a planet with a single shot and smash even our greatest star cruisers. But our analyst think they have found a weakness.
We believe that you, flying alone, in an obsolete poorly maintained star fighter, with no tactical support, or backup, or hope of rescue, can successfully destroy the Death Star.
I'm not going to lie, this might be dangerous. So we all chipped in got you a helmet.
Its our little way of saying Good Luck, We're all counting on you!
P.S. We're broke, so you only get two photon torpedoes.
