More importantly, what the fuck is a "Millennium Falcon"

When the characters speak, they aren't speaking English, they're actually speaking "Galactic Common", it's merely translated into English by the actors for your benefit, and "Falcon" is the closest approximation for an avian species in the Star Wars universe from which Han Solo's modified YT-1300f light freighter.

In his earlier indie film days George always wanted to film the Star Wars in its original constructed alien languages but the studios talked him out of it and forced to produce the film in English instead.

*light freighter derives its name.

How do they have X-wings, Y-wings, A-wings etc when there is no latin alphabet.
>>
>>64744394
In Star Wars falcons are a completely different alien animal that are disc shaped like the millenium falcon that are from some planet

Just like how the 'angels' young Anakin refers to are some species from a moon
>>
That is the independently discovered word for that concept because English is the true and accurate language and Falcon is the true word the predatory bird

ok ok ok i hear ya but now explain the use of the terms x-wing, y-wing- and a-wing as stated in >>64745844

>>64746138
Ayy-wing because aliens made it, the X in X-wing is a doodle of it's wing shape, and why-wing because why is it called a wing if it doesn't have any.
