Taking place a few years after the Legacy of the Force trilogy (which I haven't read yet), Han Solo and his wife Leia have a new ward named Allana (for those of you who haven't read that trilogy either, I won't reveal who that is). On a routine flight onboard the Falcon, Allana finds a weird contraption on the ship, something which Han surprisingly has no clue about what it is. Meanwhile, a pilot from the time of Emperor Palpatine's ascension, who was flying the Falcon (though it was called something else) on a last ditch mission until a collision in space, has awoken from his sixty year coma with a phrase in his mind and a determination to discover just what the Republic senators had hidden in his ship that was so important. For that, he'll need to find his old ship. Needless to say, these stories end up intersecting.
The concept behind Millennium Falcon is actually quite nice: a pleasant little treasure hunt for the Solos after the horrible events of Legacy. In fact, that's the tone that Luceno sets throughout the book. There is very little real sense of danger anywhere in this book, which makes the one or two places where there is a little danger seem completely out of place, not to mention tacked on.Read more ›
It was interesting that the Millennium Falcon was 100+ years old, I thought at first that this was a bit too much to take in, but when you concider that the USAF still has B52 Bombers that are over 50 years old, and are still in service, and our technology is not as advanced as the technology in Star Wars it becomes aceptable to have a 100 year old space ship.
The end of book introduces us to the next Star Wars Saga nicely (Fate of the Jedi), but prior to that the main Storey ending is a bit week, and seemed some what rushed, hence I only gave it 4 stars, but never the less a must buy for any Star Wars fan.
This would be a nice little story about the Solos taking a break from the day to day monotony of saving the galaxy from yet another evil force sensitive or whatever new flimsy villain could be thought up next. There would no doubt be a few little adventures along the way and some Solo-esque comedy too.
This is exactly what it was. Sadly, however, the overall story contained far too many implausible conveniences for my liking. Firstly, a man waking up from a 62 year coma sounds like something more suited to an American soap opera. And really, what are the chances of Han Solo finding a hidden device on his ship - despite having never found it in half a century of ownership - and deciding to trace the previous owners of the ship just as coma guy wakes up and decides he needs to find all subsequent owners of the ship. When the story finally unravels and all the book reaches its climax, I found myself wondering how convenient it was that all the players get to where they need to go just as the planet is about to implode. The ending itself was also very week and anti-climatic.
Also, I know that the Millennium Falcon is as much a part of Star Wars as Han, Leia, Luke et all but I couldn't help thinking what the chances really are of anyone keeping a ship that is over 100 years old. To put it into perspective it would be like me driving round in a model T Ford or, in keeping with the ship analogy, like the government sending a World War I dreadnaught into battle... think about it.Read more ›
Its witty, it has moments of bravery as well as moments of great humour but above all it's fun and a nice little addition to the Lucas Mythos. Playing with your Falcon will never be the same again...
