Lando Calrissian smuggled successfully across the galaxy for years. He had an amazing reputation and the fastest ship in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon. Then he lost both of them to Han Solo. But Han Solo has a failing reputation and a worn-out ship.
The Millennium Falcon is a Corellian YT-1300 light freighter. Too small to carry bulk cargo, its greatest asset is its speed. Because it can only carry small valuable merchandise, the ship is the perfect smuggling vessel. When owned by Lando Calrissian, it was a bright ship with clean lines and a detachable shuttle craft. Under Han Solo’s captaincy, the Falcon lost the shuttle and took on a look of disrepair. Celebrated pilot, Luke Skywalker, called it “a piece of junk” when he first saw it.
