I've always been puzzled by the speeds of space craft in Star Wars. The Millennium Falcon was said to travel at "point 5 past light" - which I guess is 1.5c: HAN: She'll make point five beyond the speed of light. She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've added some special modifications myself. And it was said by Han Solo to be the fastest ship in the fleet. HAN: Look. I want you to take her. I mean it. Take her. You need all the help you can get. She's the fastest ship in the fleet. But at that speed it will take years to travel between solar systems. Is this a mistake in the Star Wars universe?
