- The guy who reports to Tarkin that the base on Dantooine was deserted (the character is Officer Cass) gives an extremely flat performance.

- Shoutout to Alex's Alec Guinness impression
- If Ben was controlling the situation, then Luke is experiencing the placebo effect when he feels The Force.
- Obi-Wan as a cult leader
- Is that the conference room or Tarkin's personal office?
- Why so many guys with guns hanging around in the Death Star?
- Tarkin keeps getting fooled by Leia.
