Replacement procedures were not the same as removal. Once I replaced my ventral shield generator I stated noticing flucuations in Medvedov radiation readings. All suggested fixes were not supported by CEC.
Just about everything that mentioned in the other books is all here along with lots more. It reads like a product catalog for this Corellan light freighter along with the other models. So not only do you get detailed specs on our beloved cruiser you also get some details on several Falcon-like variations like cockpit placement, engine types, cargo capacities and other unexpected "options". But the meat of the book is all Falcon. This is not a repair manual in the sense that people are used when seeing Hayne's on the cover. None of Hayne's sci-fi books are. It is a detailed set of specifications though, and really that should be enough.
Every system, function, feature, and modification is specified on this manual. You get to read about the standard parts as well as the ones tricked out by Solo and previous owners. You get specifics on navigation and maneuvering, weapons systems, guidance and sensor systems, defensive shielding, cargo capacity, support systems, available factory options (you can get a mini-fighter launched from one of the access hatches) and more. There is enough here for you to even imagine what you own Corellan freighter would be like.
As I stated earlier this book pretty much trumps every other technical entry previously published. You think you have some awesome stuff already? You probably do, but with this book has more. Guaranteed. If you absolutely love the Millennium Falcon and would absolutely love all the info you can gather this book is it. Unlike other Star Wars books that seem to be constantly updated with new stuff (thus making new editions to buy) I would be hard pressed to conceive how much more can be done than this book... unless somebody makes a real repair manual.
Gives a rehash of the essential characters, and how they relate with the ship.
Don't think in terms of a "Haynes Repair/Service Manual", that is just silly. It's a basic fan reference book. A must have for true SW fans.
A must for any Star Wars fan and a absolute requirement for millennium falcon lovers
The manual details the history and variations of the YT designs, especially the most famous of all YT's, the Millennium Falcon. We get to see photos of all sides of the Falcon, floor plans, some of Han's modifications. It also includes a buying guide, with photos and illustrations of the facilities, the navigation and defense systems, the cockpit, together with scenes out of the movies.
The history of the Falcon itself includes short biographies of Lando Calrissian, Han Solo, and Chewbacca. What would have made this book perfect is to see a history of the ship beyond "Return of the Jedi," but the author says this was done so fans can enjoy the book without spoilers. Overall, it's a good reference book for Star Wars fans young and old.
Top international reviews
It's not actually any good if you want to fix your craft's repulsor lifts or the hyperdrive engine but that's what the orbital and ground based dockyards are for.
It's only a small book at 125 pages, but has a lot of illustrations and pictures and is a welcome addition to any sci fi fans library. It would be nice to see more of these type of manuals from Haynes so fingers crossed!
It was a gift for my husband! He loved as one would expect from a Star Wars fan. I think the amazing dedication of publishers to create and foster from time to time the universes of these creations. I admire the ingenuity of other writers in giving credibility to the objects and people exist in this universe, you make it believable and palpable that was created by the imagination. For a moment everything is real!! I love it too!!
now i can go fix my falcon!!
