What We Learned About Boba Fett's Ship In The Mandalorian Chapter 15

The Mandalorian continues to surprise its audience this season. The show brought back fan favorites from the animated Star Wars universe like Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) and Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson), as well as favorites from The Mandalorian's first season, like Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) and Mayfeld (Bill Burr).

But arguably, the most shocking (and exciting) return of all was Temuera Morrison as the OG Mandalorian bounty hunter Boba Fett. Fett first reappears briefly in the season premiere, "The Marshal," and is featured in chapters 14 and 15 of the series, "The Tragedy" and "The Believer" (he was also glimpsed in episode 5, back in the first season, but only as a shadowy figure).

And while you might understandably have been severely distracted by Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) showing his face on screen for the first time, there's at least one other first worth mentioning that relates back to Boba Fett.

For those who don't know, Boba Fett is basically known for three things: being a clone kid, hunting bounties, and having a sweet ride — and it's that third thing we got an update about on The Mandalorian. It was mc chris who dubbed Boba's ship "Fett's Vette" but its real name is Slave I and it's been around for a while. But even though we've seen Slave I many times, we didn't know what it really looks like on the inside — until now.

Slave I's interior is different than we expected

There's actually a lot more information out there about Slave I than the casual Star Wars fan probably realizes. If all you've ever seen is the movies, then most of what you know about Slave I is that it's fast, stealthy, and generally bad ass. Also, when you see the back of it, it kind of looks like it's smiling at you!

What most people don't know is that Jango Fett stole the ship from the prison moon Oovo IV and converted it. Slave I is a Firespray31-class patrol and attack craft. Basically, think of Slave I as a cop car in space that the Fetts tricked out.

Slave I is extremely powerful. The ship has missile launchers, twin blasters with 360 degree rotation, ion cannons, and repulsor fins that make it more maneuverable than almost any other space vehicle out there.

However, we're not sure if anyone was prepared for how spacious the ship actually is on the inside. Since most of what we've seen is the tight cockpit, it's fair to say that most of us figured most of the rest of the ship wasn't really designed for comfort.

However, the inside of Slave I has holographic image scanners, multiple seats, heck, even multiple rooms. Here we were assuming this thing was the spaceship equivalent of a New York City studio apartment, but meanwhile it's a solid two-bedroom!

Bonus points for showing off Slave I's seismic charges as it blew up some TIE fighters — we haven't seen anything like that since Jango fought Obi-Wan Kenobi in the asteroid field orbiting Geonosis.

What might we see next from Slave I and will Din Djarin somehow take permanent ownership of it? We'll find out in the season finale of The Mandalorian on December 18, 2020.
