Han Solo

  • I've been running scams on the streets since I was ten. I was kicked out of the flight academy for having a mind of my own. I'm gonna be a pilot. The best in the galaxy.
  • Thought we were in trouble there for a second, but it's fine. We're fine.
  • [to Chewbacca] I'm a driver and I'm a flyer. I waited a long time for a shot like this. What do you think? Well, what do you need to know?
  • I've got a really good feeling about this.
  • [to Chewbacca] Since when do you know how to fly? 190 years old?! You look great!
  • [to Chewbacca] You think everything sounds like a bad idea.
  • This is a little something I picked up from my friend Needles, best Street Racer in all of Correlia! Till he crashed and died doing THIS!

Tobias Beckett

  • Heard about a job. Big shot gangster, putting together a crew.
  • If you come with us, you're in this life for good.
  • Let me give you some advice. Assume everyone will betray you, and you will never be disappointed.
  • People are predictable.


  • I might be the only person who knows what you really are.
  • You're after something. Is it revenge? Money? Or is it something else? You look good. Little rough around the edges, but good.
  • It's risky, but it's worth a try.


Han Solo: I heard a story about you; I was wondering if it was true.
Lando Calrissian: Everything you heard about me is true.

Tobias Beckett: Hey, kid. I'm putting together a crew. You in? [Chewbacca makes an affirmative growl]
Han Solo: That's yes.

Dryden Vos: You need an incredibly fast ship, and a brilliant pilot.
Han Solo: We'll find a ship. We've already got the pilot.
[he points at himself]

Han Solo: So what's your name anyway?
Chewbacca: [whistles and barks]
Han Solo: "Chewbacca"? [chuckles] Alright, well, you're gonna need a nickname cause I ain't saying that every time.

L3-37: So what are you gonna do about your little problem?
Qi'ra: Problem? I, er... uh...
L3-37: Well, that brand on your wrist tells me that you're committed. And that young male's heart fluctuations tell me he's in love with you.
Qi'ra: Han is not in love with me!
L3-37: Oh, please. It's just us. You don't have to pretend. I'm in the same situation.
Qi'ra: You are?
L3-37: I'm sure you've noticed that Lando has feelings for me. Which makes working together difficult because I do not feel the same way about him.
Qi'ra: Right. [Pause, decides to humor her.] Yes, Yeah. Yeah I see that.
L3-37: Somethings, I think... maybe. But, no. We're just not compatible.
Qi'ra: [Pause.] How would that work?
L3-37: It works.
[Qi'ra tries to hide her amusement.]

L3-37: A restraining bolt. Barbaric!
[Draws the bolt. The robotic technician gives a questioning whistle.]
L3-37: I don't know! Free your brothers and sisters or something!
[The technician unchains the other workers, both human and mechanical, one by one. They in turn release others and shut down the surrounding machinery little by little.]

[Qi'ra turns on the holographic communicator with Dryden Vos' superior, a mysterious hooded figure with robotic legs]
Hooded Superior: Yes?
Qi'ra: I regret to inform you that Dryden Vos is dead. Murdered by the thief he hired to steal the coaxium shipment. His friend, Tobias Beckett.
Hooded Superior: Is that so? Where is the shipment now?
Qi'ra: Gone. Beckett took it. Slaughtered the others. I alone survived.
[The hooded figure pulls back his hood, revealing himself to be Darth Maul]
Maul: One man couldn't have done this alone.
Qi'ra: I wasn't there. But if I had been, perhaps I could've saved him.
[Maul snarls, then chuckles. He holds out his arm, and his lightsaber flies into his hand from off-screen. He stands.]
Maul: Bring the ship and come to me on Dathomir, and you and I will then decide what to do about traitor Beckett and his accomplices.
Qi'ra: I'm on my way.
[Qi'ra prepares to shut off the communicator, but Maul ignites his lightsaber, stopping her.]
Maul: Qi'ra, you and I will be working much more closely from now on.
[Maul turns off his lightsaber before shutting down the communicator]
