    The first thing I put on the table when Resistance dropped was Rey/Poe.  It hit pretty hard, felt like a warm, comfortable sweater....then I played a second game...the moth-chewed holes started to form.  I think I've played a total of 3-5 games with the Resistance Falcon and kind of felt like I didn't like large bases anymore.  Rey with Finn/Rose is pretty dumb, but I don't know how I can get 100+ points worth of value out of her before she dies.
    After this weekend, though, I am going to start playing both Rey and Han.  I've not really given them a fair shake.  I don't think they're currently competitive, but with the Transports coming out and a points change in a couple months...who knows.  Han's ability is silly, but can make it fun.

    Ok so we all know the Falcon. It's one of the oldest ships in the game and has been at least somewhere present in the meta since what, 2013? But the question today concerns the Resistance variant. 

    So first of all the ship chassis. Slightly less hitpoints than the normal Falcon, red rotate, other than that mostly the same. The dial is also lacking the 4K and has a red 4 straight. However, the ship is a little cheaper. 

    Chewbacca and Han are both on this ship, but with slightly less generally useful abilities than they have in the Rebel faction. How would/do you use these abilities? How do you build a squad around these pilots? 

    One of the biggest selling points of this chassis is access to a force-sensitive pilot, Rey. Her ability is less crazy than in 1.0 but she still seems really useful. How would/could/should you fly her?

    Despite seeming a little overpriced compared to the other Falcon variants, this one does have access to some different crew and gunners that might help it differentiate itself, as well as different options for squadmates. What do you think? What's the best way to use this ship?

    Please stop trying to sow division and anger in the community. We don't want this behaviour from anyone. 
    To be clear: I don't support people raging at Mark Hamill for posting the original stars in the cockpit, just as I don't support you threatening the Story Group if they blow up the Falcon.

    I would sell off everything Star Wars and disavow the series forever. 
    Then I would use the money to hunt down the writer and kick them in their breakfast area so hard their ancestors would foreswear hard chairs.

    It hadn't occurred to me that they could kill the Falcon. That would acrually be more devastating to me than any other death that could occur.

    The sky is not falling, but Han Solo's illicit slot is. Which would be weird, given how it is a smuggler's ship and there aren't many issues with the other pilots having said slot. But there is precedent for this, as Leebo lost his C3-PO slot. And no, C3-Leebo was not broken, but it used the interactions of the cards in a way that was not intended by the designers. Given all the unintended interactions, I can't imagine Han retaining Inertial Dampeners.
    TBH, I'm fine with this being the big bogeyman that we're panicking about. It's an easy-to-fix problem that demonstrates 2e's superiority in dealing with a list that tries to render a dial decision irrelevant (can we get an F in the chat for Tripsilon?). And even then, this list offers a lot more counterplay than Dash Roark. And as Gordon Berg points out, there is some strange Deja Vu as to countering the problem of TIE Phantoms with a Fat Han.

    Im not sure if I fully understand the extent of Inert Fat Han's movement capabilities just yet.
    So posting this to find out if I have it defined correctly. Images below are just to facilitate that discussion. 
    Han Solo — Modified YT-1300 Light Freighter 82 Trick Shot 2 Luke Skywalker 26 Kanan Jarrus 12 R2-D2 (Crew) 8 Engine Upgrade 7 Millennium Falcon 6 Inertial Dampeners 1 Ship Total: 144 Half Points: 72 Threshold: 7 Q: If a ship that is equipped with Kanan Jarrus [Crew] uses Inertial Dampeners [Illicit] to perform a white stationary maneuver, in which order to Kanan's ability and the "gain 1 stress token" portion of Inertial Dampeners' ability occur?
    A: Both abilities have the same timing window: after the ship executes the maneuver. Thus, after the ship executes the white stationary maneuver, if the player chooses to spend one Force charge to activate Kanan, two abilities enter the ability queue: Inertial Dampeners' "gain 1 stress token" and Kanan Jarrus' "remove 1 stress token." The player who controls both effects determines the order they enter the queue, and then the abilities resolve in that order. If a player wants the ship to gain and then remove a stress token, Inertial Dampeners' ability should be placed into the queue before Kanan's ability.
    Q: How is Han Solo [Rebel, Modified YT-1300]'s ability categorized? Is it a dice modification? Is it a reroll? What is its timing window?
    A: Han Solo's ability is treated as a dice modification effect that is not a reroll. Because it is a dice modification effect, when attacking or defending, it triggers during the Modify Dice step. Note, however, that it can also affect other die rolls, such as the roll to determine if a ship suffers damage from overlapping or moving through an asteroid. 
    Result: 
    Dialing in a 4 Straight, the Initiative 6 Fat Han can choose to use Inertial Dampeners to white stop and boost one of 3 directions or they can select the 4 straight. ( One of 8 Locations can be "selected” ).

    Example Opponent Starting Position: 

    Example Approach #1 ( 4 Safe Locations for Han )

    Example Approach #2 ( 2 Safe Location for Han )

    Example Approach #3 ( 3 Safe Locations for Han )

    Example Approach #4 ( 4 Safe Locations for Han )

    Example Approach #5 ( 4 Safe Locations for Han )

    Example Approach #6 ( 8 Safe Locations for Han )

    Example Approach #7 ( 5 Safe Locations for Han )

    Example Approach #8 ( 4 Safe Locations for Han )

    Specific Location Scorch Could Start to Have an Option that Guarantees Han will be in Arc Next Turn Assuming Han Only Has a 4 Straight on his dial, there are obviously other specific starting spots that make this possible: 

    If Scorch is slightly Left or Right or Forward from this starting position an option will Exist for Han to Choose to Be Out of Arc:
