Wily enough to catch even the Millennium Falcon, come and take a gander at the galaxy’s most famous bounty hunter ship–Slave I!
Slave I might be one of the most infamous starships in the galaxy. The signature ship of the legendary bounty hunter, Boba Fett, Slave I has a storied history in the service of the Fetts. From its humble origins as a Firespray-31 class patrol and attack craft, Slave I has been heavily modified under both its owners, and though the chassis is the same, almost every other piece of the ship has been modified, upgraded, or replaced entirely.
Starting with Jango Fett, who modified the Kuat Systems Engineering craft well beyond original specifications, adding superior Shielding Technology, upgrading its engine output, and increasing the precision of the onboard blaster cannons–and that was just the exterior. Internally, Jango Fett modified the former patrol craft for long-term space missions, allowing the bounty hunter to pursue prey across the Rim. And speaking of prey, the older Fett also reconfigured the regulation cages, used for holding prisoners, into coffin-like cabinets that could better control captives.
Boba Fett would prove the old adage, like father, like son to be true, and when he came into possession of his father’s old ship, Slave I became a force to be reckoned with. Boba Fett improved upon his father’s designs, adding even more hidden weaponry to the ship, including a set of seismic charges, concealed proton torpedo tubes and concussion missile launchers, as well as ion cannons and an upgraded tractor beam projector. And internally, Boba Fett adapted the prisoner cages into six immobilizing bunks that would allow the bounty hunter to catch any target and keep them almost indefinitely.
Slave I was a relentless ship, capable of great bursts of initial speed–though the real secret weapon employed by it was a secret military sensor which allowed the ship to mask its presence from most other ships–this is how Boba Fett was able to track the Millennium Falcon to Cloud City and work with Darth Vader to set up an ambush for Luke Skywalker while at the same time, capturing Han Solo.
Later, Slave I would be used on behalf of Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin, as Boba Fett helped the other hunter track down Moff Gideon and rescue the child, Grogu, from captivity.
May the Force be With You
