== Han Solo ==
I've been running scams on the streets since I was ten. I was kicked out of the flight academy for having a mind of my own. I'm gonna be a pilot. The best in the galaxy.
Thought we were in trouble there for a second, but it's fine. We're fine.
[to Chewbacca] I'm a driver and I'm a flyer. I waited a long time for a shot like this. What do you think? Well, what do you need to know?
I've got a really good feeling about this.
[to Chewbacca] Since when do you know how to fly? 190 years old?! You look great!
[to Chewbacca] You think everything sounds like a bad idea.
This is a little something I picked up from my friend Needles, best Street Racer in all of Correlia! Till he crashed and died doing THIS!

Heard about a job. Big shot gangster, putting together a crew.
If you come with us, you're in this life for good.
Let me give you some advice. Assume everyone will betray you, and you will never be disappointed.
People are predictable.
== Qi'ra ==
I might be the only person who knows what you really are.
You're after something. Is it revenge? Money? Or is it something else? You look good. Little rough around the edges, but good.
It's risky, but it's worth a try.
== Dialogue ==
Han Solo: I heard a story about you; I was wondering if it was true.
Lando Calrissian: Everything you heard about me is true.Tobias Beckett: Hey, kid. I'm putting together a crew. You in? [Chewbacca makes an affirmative growl]
Han Solo: That's yes.Dryden Vos: You need an incredibly fast ship, and a brilliant pilot.
Han Solo: We'll find a ship. We've already got the pilot.
[he points at himself]Han Solo: So what's your name anyway?
Han Solo: "Chewbacca"? [chuckles] Alright, well, you're gonna need a nickname cause I ain't saying that every time.[Qi'ra turns on the holographic communicator with Dryden Vos' superior, a mysterious hooded figure with robotic legs]
Hooded Superior: Yes?
Qi'ra: I regret to inform you that Dryden Vos is dead. Murdered by the thief he hired to steal the coaxium shipment. His friend, Tobias Beckett.
Hooded Superior: Is that so? Where is the shipment now?
Qi'ra: Gone. Beckett took it. Slaughtered the others. I alone survived.
[The hooded figure pulls back his hood, revealing himself to be Darth Maul]
Maul: One man couldn't have done this alone.
Qi'ra: I wasn't there. But if I had been, perhaps I could've saved him.
[Maul snarls, then chuckles. He holds out his arm, and his lightsaber flies into his hand from off-screen. He stands.]
Maul: Bring the ship and come to me on Dathomir, and you and I will then decide what to do about traitor Beckett, and his accomplices.
Qi'ra: I'm on my way.
[Qi'ra prepares to shut off the communicator, but Maul ignites his lightsaber, stopping her.]
Maul: Qi'ra, you and I will be working much more closely from now on.
[Maul turns off his lightsaber before shutting down the communicator]L3-37: So what are you gonna do about your little problem?
Qi'ra: Problem? I, er... uh...
L3-37: Well, that brand on your wrist tells me that you're committed. And that young male's heart fluctuations tell me he's in love with you.
Qi'ra: Han is not in love with me!
L3-37: Oh, please. It's just us. You don't have to pretend. I'm in the same situation.
Qi'ra: You are?
L3-37: I'm sure you've noticed that Lando has feelings for me. Which makes working together difficult because I do not feel the same way about him.
Qi'ra: Right. [Pause, decides to humor her.] Yes, Yeah. Yeah I see that.
L3-37: Somethings, I think... maybe. But, no. We're just not compatible.
Qi'ra: [Pause.] How would that work?
L3-37: It works.
[Qi'ra tries to hide her amusement.]
