"Honestly, we're lucky he got away. Fett's flying Slave One."
Landonis Balthazar Calrissian, to Chewbacca[src]

Slave I was a modified Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft used by the infamous bounty hunter Jango Fett before the Clone Wars[5] and later his unaltered cloned son Boba Fett just prior to the Fall of the Republic and during the reign of the Galactic Empire.[12] The ship in its original form was produced by a subsidiary company of Kuat Drive Yards, based on the planet Kuat.

History[edit | edit source]

"He must have put a homing device on our hull during the fight... We'll fix it! Hang on, son! We'll move into the asteroid field. He won't be able to follow us there. If he does, we'll leave him a couple of surprises."
―Jango Fett[src]

Slave I in orbit of Geonosis, under Jango Fett's ownership

Jango Fett originally stole Slave I from Oovo IV,[14] outfitting the craft with a number of weapons, including laser cannons, projectile launchers, and seismic charges.[15] While under Jango's ownership, the ship was in a dogfight over Geonosis with the Jedi starfighter piloted by Obi-Wan Kenobi.[5]

After Jango's death during the First Battle of Geonosis,[5] the craft came into the possession of his son, Boba Fett, who used it throughout his own bounty hunting career.[12] After several failed attempts to kill Jedi Master Mace Windu, the young Boba Fett, his ally turned mentor Aurra Sing, and Bossk traveled to the planet Florrum to meet with Sing's friend, spice pirate Hondo Ohnaka.[16]

After the arrival of the Jedi Ahsoka Tano and Plo Koon, Fett and Bossk were captured. When Sing tried to escape on Slave I, Tano leaped onto the ships hull and sliced off a wing with her lightsaber. After this, Sing lost control of the ship and it crashed. Ohnaka took ownership of Slave I for a short period of time,[10] before it returned to Boba's ownership near the end of the Clone Wars.[11]

The Slave I on Bespin at the time of Han Solo's capture

The ship became well-known to the galaxy's fugitives, who recognized it as the ship owned by one of the galaxy's deadliest bounty hunters.[15] During the Galactic Civil War, the adult Boba used Slave I to transport a carbon-frozen Han Solo from Cloud City to Jabba the Hutt on Tatooine.[12]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

In the 2015 reference book Ultimate Star Wars, Slave I was mistakenly referred to as Clone 1 on two occasions.[2]

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft on Takodana in Star Wars Battlefront II bears the same carbon scoring marks as that of Slave I.
