“The force is strong with this one” is a line pulled from Yoda in Star Wars. In other words, Captain Murphy is skilled.
Midi-chlorians are a bacteria in human cells in the Star Wars trilogy associated with the Force. Average humans have about 2,500 Midi-clorians per cell, while the highest known number was 20,000 for Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader).
Therefore, we know that Captain Murphy is probably pretty fucking skilled. Worthy of Yoda’s appreciation.
