comment Was the Millennium Falcon a one-off or was it mass produced?
Rey is an expert. Don't you think an enthusiast would know what Thrust2 looks like, but not be able to identify it vs. another similar vehicle. If an enthusiast happened upon that vehicle in an abandoned warehouse and then someone told said person it was Thrust2, don't you think they would say: "This is Thrust2! This is the car that beat the land speed record of 650 kilograms per lumen!"

@YLearn: This is not a theory of logic class. It's not about whether you can formally infer that. I said you can reasonably infer that. The clear impression, based on her expression and attitude and since Rey appears to be highly knowledgeable about ships and the Millenium Falcon breaking (apparently still holding) the Kessel Run record is that she most likely knows (1) and (2). Calling it a fallacy and then (baselessly) claiming it is "far more likely" to infer something else is the fallacy. ... (cont)

comment What is the purpose of the Millennium Falcon's "mandibles"?
I think the freight loading arm makes sense as the key thing that justifies the shape and presence of the mandibles.

(also, of course, in Star Trek, anything is possible, so obviously the answer is yes.) :)

@alexwlchan, okay. Duh, I guess I was skimming too fast.

comment Why do they use Arabic (i.e. Earth) numerals in Star Wars?
Yes, I see that after I read the linked page. I guess it doesn't seem clear to me from the way the answer is written that the link contains the justifications. It would be good to make that more explicit and even better to import the really important references.

comment Are there any Federation citizens who own/operate cloaked ships
Don't forget: or (1) from Federation (who essentially had it but couldn't/wouldn't use it) or (2) from the future.
