But has he outrun Imperial starships? Not the local bulk cruisers, I'm talking the big Corillean ships.

Exactly.  I could have beat that with one leg.

Parsecs is a measure of distance, not speed!

Han Solo claimed that his Millennium Falcon "made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs". A parsec was a unit of distance, not time. Solo was not referring directly to his ship's speed when he made this claim. Instead, he was referring to the shorter route he was able to travel by skirting the nearby Maw black hole cluster, thus making the run in under the standard distance.


Actually, I'm pretty sure it's just a plot hole.

They refer to it in the the EU sometimes. The Maw cluster is fairly important in a few books as the Imperial remnant builds a base there :nerdsmiley:.
