I don't know where you heard that Lando trained Han... I believe Han was a pilot in the Imperial (or somesuch) forces, which is how he was trained. He freed Chewie at some point, went AWOL and became a smuggler. As far as the Falcon is concerned, though, you're right.

off topic but also in the imperial academy is where Han knows Dash Rendar from if I remember right who I'm pretty sure has a big part in Han getting the Falcon. But i could be wrong Confused getting old and memories fading :D.

Han was actually teaching Lando how to fly, since he no longer had Vuffi Ra, the "droid" pilot he acquired.

As far as I recall, the Falcon was part of the inventory of a used spaceship lot Lando had won. Solo saw it once and fell in love with it.

Lando had already started making some mods to it, and was considering keeping it as his own ship. When Han won the sabbac game, Lando had offered him the pick of any ship on the lot. And since Lando had not flown the Falcon to the tournament they were in, the Falcon was still at the lot, hence, Han chose it, much to Lando's dismay.

If you're using search engines, it might help to spell it properly as in 'Millennium Falcon History'. Seems most people misspell millennium for some reason. Smile

I do remember reading that somewhere... hmmm. What do you think Lando was referring to when he said that the Falcon had saved his life quite a few times? When he was hanging out with Han after he had won the ship or before Han got it from him?

I think you need to take back that dictionary you bought - it's obviously defective. ::D:

If you read the Lando Calrissian Adventures novels ( LANDO CALRISSSIAN AND THE MINDHARP OF SHARU, LANDO CLARISSIAN AND THE FLAMEWIND OF OSEON, and LANDO CALRISSIAN AND THE STARCAVE OF THONBOKA) you'll see all the back story on events prior to his loss of the Falcon to Han, including the times the Falcon was instrumental in saving him

Hope this helps ya...

THANK YOU, because obviously we did need those definitions. Smile

This is quickly going to become a pet peeve of mine because of this thread, I'm sure of it.
