Slave I in the Special Edition release of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

Slave I is a spacecraft in the Star Wars universe. It first appears in the film Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back under the command of bounty hunter Boba Fett (Jeremy Bulloch), and then in the prequel film Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones commanded by Jango Fett (Temuera Morrison). Slave I also appears in numerous Star Wars Expanded Universe books, comics, and video games; toys and models of the craft have been made by a variety of merchandising licensees.

Origin and design

The ship's design was inspired by the shape of a street lamp.[1] Its appearance in original release of The Empire Strikes Back was realized by a combination of matte paintings and a 69-centimeter model.[2] Slave I appearances added to the film's Special Edition release were computer generated.[2]

Depiction

Slave I is an antiquated Kuat Systems Engineering Firespray-interceptor-class ship;[3] both Jango Fett and Boba Fett modified and upgraded the ship's engines, weapons, and defenses.[3] The video game Star Wars: Bounty Hunter depicts Jango Fett's theft of Slave I. Jango and his clone, Boba, escape Kamino aboard the Slave I in Attack of the Clones. However, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) tracks the ship to Geonosis, site of the film's climactic battle. In The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett departs Bespin with the carbonite-imprisoned Han Solo (Harrison Ford) in his cargo hold. The Rebel Alliance impounded the ship after Boba Fett's supposed death in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi; Fett later recovered the ship, flying the Slave II until Slave I's refit was complete.[3]

Merchandise

Kenner, Hasbro, Code 3 Collectibles, and Galoob have created Slave I toys and replicas.[4][5][6][7][8] Lego released Slave I models with both Jango Fett's and Boba Fett's color schemes.[9][10] Slave I is an unlockable and pilotable craft in LucasArts' Rogue Squadron flight simulators, and the ship is controllable in the Star Wars: Empire at War real-time strategy game. Decipher and Wizards of the Coast published several Slave I cards as part of the Star Wars Customizable Card Game and Star Wars Collectible Card Game, respectively.[11][12] Lego created a model of Slave I as it appears in Attack of the Clones.[13]
