      I can't recall if he actually knew Vader was on the station or not.  I do know that a bunch of other people - mostly Imperial defectors to the Rebellion - executed a plan to get the hell out of there before it blew, and most of them made it.

      The whole "inside job" bit is a very timely reminder to us - one does not commit open atrocities, particularly not against high ranking diplomatic third parties - without blowback.  That was the real point of the novel, in the end: to show the blowback.
