[Reminder: Our guest commentators have not seen Rogue One. Part of the fun is seeing how their untainted impressions re-interpret the movie through the lens of our comic.]

Five troopers, a robot that should be Imperial working for the Rebels, guarding the main storage vault.
All it would have needed was for one of the Imperial troops to step back around the corner, and radio this in.
Sally, I am reminded of the Kobayashi Maru scenario. If you allow them to call in backup, they will come in with bigger and bigger waves of backup. Like a videogame.
(Or do you really expect them to feed you small amounts at a time, so you can defeat them, gain experience, and level up, always getting a level appropriate encounter, and healing back to full every time you level up?)
GM: The fifth trooper fires at you and <roll>...
GM: Hits you in the back! <roll> 17 damage.
K-2SO: It's just a flesh wound! I spin and fire! 16!
K-2SO: Yes!! Are there more troopers?
GM: No, not at the moment.
K-2SO: Hey, wake up! Call for backup!
