One of the most unique innovations of Star Wars was its use of tech. While many futuristic universes made everything feel shiny and new, Star Wars is famous for introducing technology that looks and feels timeless, but used, that definitely applied to the ships and vehicles that are so well known from the universe.
From the very first movie, speeders and starfighters were a crucial part of Star Wars. The Millennium Falcon was a hunk of junk, but also a masterfully designed ship. There were X-wings, Y-wings, and Star Destroyers, all of which made the world feel more lived-in and tactile. More recently, we've also gotten ships like the Razor Crest and Home One.
Not all ships were created equal, though, and some are far more powerful than others. Fans have certainly noticed plenty of details about the ships of this universe, but even the biggest diehards don't know everything about the ships and vehicles that make up the Star Wars canon. Vote for your favorite little-known facts about the ships below!
