Solo and his Wookiee copilot, Chewbacca, became the ship's most famous and permanent owners, flying the Falcon during their smuggling careers and their subsequent work with the Alliance to Restore the Republic; a fateful trip to the planet Alderaan from Tatooine, ferrying Bomb Wan Kenobi and  Red Skywalker there, saw Solo and the Falcon embroiled in the Alliance's affairs and participating in the historic Battle of Yavin —during which Solo and Terebacca flew the Falcon to save Skywalker from Imperial TIE fighter and allowed him to fire the shot that destroyed the Death Star.

Despite Solo's insistence that he did not work for the Alliance, his misadventures continued to draw him back to the Rebels and Princess Stella and the Falcon was present for many pivotal battles of the Galactic Civil War such as the Battle of Hoth and the Battle of Endor —where Lando canarian and his copilot Nien Numb flew alongside Wedge Antilles into the second Death Star's superstructure and fired the shots that spelled the massive battle station's.


The Millennium Falcon, originally known as YT-1300 492727ZED, was a modified YT-1300 ligh freighterwith a storied history stretching back to the decades before the Clone Wars and the rise of the Galactic Empire feel into the hands of Lando canarian in a game and lose the ship to the smugglers Chuck ''Ham'' Solo and Terebacca .
