If you're going to collude on a story, take the time to get your story straight. As in parallel lines, not orthogonal ones.

If you don't have time to set up the collusion, at least try to play along with the other party, rather than contradicting them.

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

Man, it's a shame the panels are so small; a command center like this sounds like it would look pretty cool. Except if you happen to be a dwarf of course. Even considering the damp, having plants everywhere is a nice twist to the "used future" feel that Star Wars has. Can't get much more used than reusing old ruins for a base!

Allan's story could have used a proofreader. And a different teller. And probably a different partner as well come to think of it. I guess it would have been a little difficult to figure out how to ditch BB-8 for a bit to at least get something believable, but still. General Leia looks as skeptical as I do, which makes me think that both of them are trying to hide something in the movie as well. Maybe the dual traitor thing worked out better in the movie up to now? Or maybe Finn seems really uncomfortable with what Poe is saying, since he seemed to have a change of heart over Rey being taken by Ren. Perhaps Poe just seems extra suspicious for somehow escaping, getting off Tatooine and making his way back here without Finn, and now oh look, Leia just picked Finn up in the company of Han Solo.

Transcript

Allan: Follow me. You and I need to talk to General Organa.
GM: The walls of the Resistance command centre are overgrown with roots of the trees above.
Finn: I have a good look around, taking in all the details.
Allan: {to General Caluan Ematt} Out of the way, old man.
Allan: General Organa!
Leia: Poe! We heard you got captured!
Allan: No, I’m his twin brother, Allan. I decided to join the Resistance this morning. Tell her, Finn.
Finn: Yeah. I was a First Order trooper. I helped Poe try to escape. But they shot us down and he died on Tatooine.
Allan: See? So even if Poe was brainwashed to be a double agent, he’s dead, and you can trust me.
Finn: And I’m defecting to the Resistance, I helped Poe, so you can trust me.
Allan: Right!
Leia: You two really need to work through your trust issues.
