That. Star Wars movies are so full of glaring holes relevant to the other movies in the series, which the movie makers always claim they planned ahead of time. I'm glad this quiz stuck almost exclusively to the first 2 movies. After that it jumped the Pistris Constellation, even by 10-year olds' standards.
The point is that the ship is powerful enough to cut next through some black holes and thus shorten the distance needed to do the Kessel Run.
(Fine, yes, it's because I'm literally in love with Natalie Portman. I love her hair.)
Thanks for the spoiler alert!
