- "It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs."
- ―Han Solo, referring to the Millennium Falcon
A parsec was a unit of astronomical distance equivalent to about 19 trillion miles (3 light years). For example, Tatooine was less than a parsec away from Geonosis, and the Kamino system was located twelve parsecs south of the Rishi Maze.
Han Solo claimed his starship, Millennium Falcon, made the Kessel Run in "less than twelve parsecs," boasting about its ability to withstand shorter, more dangerous routes through hyperspace. In reality, the Falcon only made it through the Run in less than twelve parsecs on a technicality, as one needed to round down to reach the number Solo claimed.
