This generation may not live to see it, but someday, everything from Star Wars is gonna be real. Touchable. Tangible. Operational. You do realize that right? Getting us closer to that dream is the Millennium Falcon Owner’s Workshop Manual. This Haynes Manual doesn’t, like, pretend the Falcon existed–it knows it does. The 128-page book examines the history of the Corellian Engineering Corporation’s YT series of spaceships and the development of the YT-1300 model line (the Falcon is a modified YT-1300).
Then, every little thing about the ship that Han and Chewie used to smuggle goods and people across the galaxy is described in great detail: operational history, piloting, propulsion, weapons, engineering systems, sensors, and crew facilities are fleshed out to the extreme with photos, line art, floor plans, exploded diagrams, and computer-generated artwork by Falcon experts Chris Reiff, Chris Trevas, and Ryder Windham. It’s got the seal of approval from Lucasfilm too, so it’s as real as soon-to-be-real can get. [Purchase]
