Millenium Falcon

Millenium Falcon

The Millenium Falcon cargo ship that is one of the most recognisable ships in science fiction and loved. It has been described as the fastest ship in the galaxy that can do the Kessel Run in twelve parsecs. In Astronomy talk, a parsec is distance not time and is one of the most well known scientific bloopers.

Originally owned by Lando Calrissian who lost it to Han Solo gambling. It is used by Lando to lead the Rebellion assault on the second Death star, co-piloted by Nien Numb.

It was the craft that Obi-Wan Kenobi hired to take Luke Skywalker and the droids ( C-3PO and R2-D2 ) to Alderaan unaware at the time that the Planet was to be blown up. Even though it was the fastest ship, it was unable to escape from the Death Star`s pull which pulled it inside. The Cargo ship had secret compartments where the crew hid from the Stormtroopers that was sent on board to search.

At the Battle of Yavin IV, Han Solo had at first declined to take part in the asssault on the Death Star but some short tme later, he changed his mind and played a pivotal role by blasting Darth Vader TIE Fighter away so that Luke Skywalker could fire the missile that blew up the craft.

Nice picture, thanks, I love this starship, though i dont really like the cockpit/bridge placement. BTW the MF is a Corelian YT-1300 light freighter. Max length is disputed 26.5m - 35m (lol).
