"Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome aboard the pleasure yacht Arleen, now in interstellar transit from Antipose IX to—"
―A pilot droid[1]

The Arleen was a pleasure yacht that was in service[1] by 3 BBY.[2] It shared its name with the Arleen system and the Arleen Loop hyperlane.[3] The Arleen made year-long tours from the Oseon system to the Antipose system celestial body Antipose IX as well as[4] the planet[5] Antipose XII.[4]

In 3 BBY,[2] the gambler and freighter captain Lando Calrissian rented a pilot droid to help him travel in his starship, the light freighter Millennium Falcon, from the asteroid Oseon 2795 to the planet Rafa IV in the Rafa system. Once the freighter arrived at its destination, the pilot droid addressed a non-existent audience as if it was aboard Arleen instead and claimed that the vessel was undergoing an interstellar voyage from Antipose IX. At that point, Calrissian, who had become highly annoyed with the droid, switched it off.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Arleen was first mentioned in Lando Calrissian and the Mindharp of Sharu, the 1983 first entry in The Lando Calrissian Adventures trilogy of novels by L. Neil Smith.[1] According to the 145th issue of the Star Wars Insider magazine[6]—published by October 21, 2013[7]—Smith cannibalized the names of colleagues to create names for the Arleen and other subjects from the book.[6]
