"Transport this is Solo, better take off I can't get to you I'll get her out on the Falcon."
Han Solo orders the Bright Hope to take off[src]

The Bright Hope was a GR-75 transport that served the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[4] During the evacuation of Echo Base on Hoth, the Bright Hope was the last transport that left the planet with the help of Rebel pilots Wedge Antilles, Wes Janson[1] and Tarrin[5]. Princess Leia Organa was also meant to depart on the Bright Hope, but was instead forced to flee aboard the Millennium Falcon Falcon when a tunnel collapse blocked her route to the transport.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

Ultimate Star Wars states that Hobbie was part of the starfighter escort for Bright Hope, however the reference book Star Wars: On the Front Lines later contradicted that by saying he died crashing his snowspeeder during the Battle of Hoth. Furthermore, Star Wars: Complete Locations replaced Hobbie with Tarrin as one of starfighter escort pilots.
