Boba Fett has customized the outdated starship, stripping it down to bare essentials and intricately rebuilding it to be one of the fastest vehicles in the galaxy. Slave I has tremendous sublight speed and Class One hyperdrive capabilities. Often, Fett will maneuver his ship to arrive at a destination seconds before the target of his hunt arrives.
The magnetically polarized hull allows it to pick up electronic signals and pulses in a large range; it also hides the ship from sensor scans. Reinforced plating and contact ray shielding protect the Slave I from enemy attacks, while a variety of weapons provide lethal firepower.
The ship's impressive weaponry includes twin blaster cannons, an ion cannon, a concussion missile tube launcher, and a tractor beam projector. Two proton torpedo launchers send out homing beacons and S-thread trackers mounted on dummy torpedos. Combined with its telemetry systems and signal devices, these trackers allow Fett to pursue his prey at all times.
The cargo hold of the Slave I has been converted to a top-security holding area, with shielded force cages and concealed weaponry. It was in this hold that Fett put the carbonite block containing Han Solo, after the hunter tracked him down for Darth Vader and Jabba the Hutt.
Electronically linked to his ship by circuitry inside his helmet, Boba Fett sees the Slave I as an extension of his power. And for those who have been on the wrong side of the hunter, the power of the Slave I and its owner is a terrifying thing.
