Topic: On naming the ship "Slave I"

After watching the "Slave I" clip from Star Wars Robot Chicken Episode II, I got to wondering about the name for Boba's craft. Why did Jango name it the Slave I? Does anyone know the story behind that?

Re: On naming the ship "Slave I"

    That is a good question and about Slave 1 has anyone else noticed it changes colors?

That is surely a mystery to me.

Which is why it's name is Slave 1 or why it changes colors?

Re: On naming the ship "Slave I"

it's named Slave I because after Jango's mandalorians were defeated on galidraan he was sold by the governor into slavery for like 6 years

"Those with the ability to lead, have the responsibility to do so."

Yeah, that's the correct answer. That takes place in Open Seasons. The naming of the ship takes place in the game Bounty Hunter.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: On naming the ship "Slave I"

Awesome! Thanks, I knew that if anyone knew the answer to this, it would be somebody here. Much thanks to therealmccoy and Miba for your respective input!

Somebody should add that info to the Slave I wiki entry. I would do it, but I don't really have any knowledge of the story behind it.

Re: On naming the ship "Slave I"

Bah, wiki would just change it back. They do that. You go to change an article to be correct and they change it back. Happens to me every single time. I gave up. That's one of the reasons not to trust wikis because they're not always accurate. I use the official source: starwars.com's databank. I also trust my memory to be correct on most things. I'm like a sort of walking wiki; I know most the answers, and whatever I don't know I can lie about. tongue

Re: On naming the ship "Slave I"

yeah his original ship (jango) was called "jaster's legacy" or something

"Those with the ability to lead, have the responsibility to do so."

Re: On naming the ship "Slave I"

Yep, before that it was Jaster Mereels, I believe. Bounty Hunter, great game.

Re: On naming the ship "Slave I"

Actually prior to the "Jango past" I thought the ship was named Slave I to show that Boba had no real attachment to anything. He saw it as merely a means to an ends, although I think it's truly one of the only possessions that Boba is fond of - but is prepared to sacrifice if neccessary.

Re: On naming the ship "Slave I"

ya before they came up with jango im sure it was named that for an entirely different reason than what it is now
i am inclined to agree with mel's theory

"Those with the ability to lead, have the responsibility to do so."

Re: On naming the ship "Slave I"

Cool. I never really knew there was an actual story behind it.
