Boba Fett’s Slave 1 Starship Gets a New Official Name

The Imperial Transport, formerly known as the Slave 1, was one of the first starships to serve in the Imperial Navy. In addition to its combat ability, the transport was also known for being able to travel through hyperspace without sustaining damage from the space-time continuum. The ship is named for the famous bounty hunter Boba Fett who is depicted in the Star Wars expanded universe as having once owned the vessel (he was said to have named it “Slave 1”).

Recently, Empire Magazine revealed the new official name of the customised Slave 1 starship that Boba Fett built for himself during the prequel trilogy of the Star Wars films: “The Star Destroyer Redemption”. This name is in reference to redeeming people whom Boba has wronged. This ship is the same one that we first saw at Toy Fair 2016, and has been featured in the Mattel Star Wars Black 2-Pack toy set, as well as a Lego version.

I don’t know how it happened, but somewhere along the line, the unique name of Boba Fett’s Slave 1 ship got yanked. The Star Wars fan community has been trying to bring it back, and they finally succeeded. While the ship had the same name as the original, it wasn’t the official name. So today, real name is back and it’s official and the official name is now The Slave I.

When it was announced earlier this summer that Disney would be removing the name of the bounty hunter’s famous spaceship, the Slave 1, fans were furious. However, it hasn’t prevented the media giant from renaming the ship.

Boba Fett’s spaceship is now reportedly known as the Firespray, according to a Press Release for “War of the Bounty Hunters,” an ongoing Star Wars comic crossover comprised of limited series and one-shots. According to one of the bullet points detailing the event’s numerous blueprint variant covers featuring other famous figures like IG-88 and Bossk, this is the case.

Star Wars fans don’t appear to like the name so far, but it’s definitely not the worst option, and it’s really very fitting, given that it’s derived from the ship’s class. Various sources have classified the Slave 1 as a Firespray-31-class patrol and attack ship, or, more simply, a Firespray-class interceptor.

In the forthcoming Disney+ series, Boba Fett’s spaceship will most likely be called Firespray. The series, dubbed The Book of Boba Fett, stars Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand. It will be released in December of 2021.
