The Eravana was a Baleen-class heavy freighter used for smuggling operations, piloted by Han Solo and Chewbacca. After losing the Millennium Falcon, Solo and Chewie operated the Eravana for an unspecified number of years, making a fair amount of credits with their new ship, criss-crossing the galaxy smuggling cargo.
- "What are you going to do?"
"Same thing I always do, talk my way out of it."
- ―Rey and Han Solo
Han Solo's freighter, the Eravana, had been boarded by two notorious criminal factions, the Guavian Death Gang and Kanjiklub, whom Solo was indebted to. Not wanting Rey and Finn to be involved, Solo placed both of them in the lower corridors of the freighter while he and Chewbacca went to meet with the criminals, with BB-8 accompanying them. The smuggler tried but failed to convince both parties that he would fix things eventually, with the Guavian Death Gang negotiator, Bala-Tik, recognizing the BB unit from a First Order bounty placed on it and two fugitives. They demanded that Solo hand over the droid and the fugitives. As the scuffle continued, Rey accidentally released three rathtars. They successfully escaped the gangs and jumped into hyperspace in the Falcon, leaving the Eravana in the hands of the Guavians. Immediately, Bala-Tik ordered his men to inform the First Order that Solo and the droid had escaped from the ship.
Behind the scenes
The Eravana appears in the 2015 film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. The design for the vessel was one of the last ones finalized, around the time that principal photography was wrapping up in late 2014.
