The ship has an unusual aspect: it lands with
its engines down, and in flight, it flies effectively
"standing up". Two-thirds of SLAVE
1 interior is dedicated to the powerful Kuat Engineering Systems F-31 drive engines
and the four Kuat X-F-16 power generators,
giving SLAVE 1
the speed of an alliance Y-Wing fighter.
The interior sections are cramped, containing only enough room for Fett's living quarters, his equipment locker, and the six prisoner cages, which includes a contraband Force cage to contain Force-using individuals.
The bottom rear section of the hull has fully rotating twin blaster cannons. SLAVE 1 also conceals a forward-firing concussion-missile launcher and ion cannon as well as a turret-mounted tractor-beam projector and a pair of proton torpedo launchers that are also on a turret. Combatants are normally so intent on avoiding the blaster cannons that they blunder right into the hidden torpedo launchers' field of fire.
In addition to combat-grade shields and sensors, SLAVE 1 has an illegal sensor masking and jamming system that allows it to slip through sensor grids undetected. This system, thought to be an Imperial Navy military secret, was somehow acquired by Fett and has given him a decisive advantage on many hunts. He can use the system to sneak onto worlds undetected, much to the dismay of his targets and planetary law-enforcement agents.
SLAVE 1 has dummy proton torpedoes mounted with homing beacons and S-thread trackers. By tagging a ship with one of these dummy beacons, Fett can use his contraband HoloNet transceiver to track ships through hyperspace. In other words, once he has found you, it's almost impossible to dodge the infamous Boba Fett.
After Fett's apparent death during the battle of Tatooine, SLAVE 1 was captured by the Alliance and held in an impound on the planet Groukouine. After Fett escaped the clutches of the Sarlacc, he managed to get his ship back without alerting the New Republic that he was alive. Meanwhile, he used his secondary ship, SLAVE 2, until he was able to purchase SLAVE 1 back. In his most recent encounter with Han Solo, Boba Fett used SLAVE 1 to chase down the Millennium Falcon on the smugglers' moon of Nar Shaddaa, but once again, Solo evade capture by his old foe.
Many years before the battle of the first Death Star, SLAVE 1 was owned by another sinister bounty hunter named Jango Fett. Using the ship for his bounty hunting role, he taught his son Boba Fett everything he knew so one day he could pilot the craft. During a battle at the planet Kamino, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi went up against Jango Fett in a large man to man battle. Young Boba Fett, inside SLAVE 1, made a few attempts to get rid of Obi-Wan by firing SLAVE 1's lasers. Boba missed, but both Jango and Boba Fett eventaully safely escaped. Before they could get too far, Obi-Wan attached a homing beacon to SLAVE 1 and attempted to follow them. What ensued was a large battle through an asteroid field. Jango used all of Slave 1's capacities, inlcuding the secret weapons like Sonic-Charges, hidden laser cannons, and cuncussion missiles. Outsmarting Jango, Obi-Wan piloted his Jedi Starfighter and pulled a trick that made Jango think that Obi-Wan's ship was hit by a missile that Slave 1 launched. Continuing on their journey believing Obi-Wan was dead, Jango and Boba Fett descended down to the planet Genosis. What they didn't know was that Obi-Wan was alive, and still following.
After Jango Fett died at the hands of Mace Windu, Boba Fett inherited the ship. Using a 'video book' that his father had left him in case he died, Boba continued his father's legacies by beginning his own bounty hunting career. And the rest, as they say, is history.
