There are many ships in the Star Wars universe. Star Destroyers, the ship Darth Vader preferred to travel in, are very large, and intimidating. They have a lot of fire power, but they can't move quickly. If this ship was in a fight where they needed to get away, it would be difficult. At the end of Return of the Jedi two Star Destroyers collide with each other because they can't move fast enough. Nope, not my ship of choice.
My favorite ship from the Star Wars universe is the ship that is constantly breaking down, but pulls through every time. Often called a "hunk of junk", "bucket of bolts", "not much on the outside, but has it where it counts".....
the Millennium Falcon.
Below is a video montage of most of the situations this ship finds itself in. This ship has speed, the ability to maneuver, and let's face it...the Millennium Falcon simply looks cool!
And one more video, set to the song "Greased Lightning", from Grease.
