The overall story and much of the dialogue is quite believable, especially K2’s pessimistic humor. He never leaves a pool of sarcasm behind him when he travels somewhere. When everyone in Jyn’s team pledges their support for her half-cocked endeavor, K2 says, “Jyn, I’ll be there for you.”

“Cassian told me to,” K2 adds after a moment’s hesitation. This is similar to the remarks my troops could have made to one another.
