The Bespin Direct StarSpeeder 1000 was a modified StarSpeeder 1000 spacecraft used by the interstellar travel agency Star Tours, to operate flights bound for the Outer Rim[4] planet of Bespin,[2] prior to 0 BBY.[3] The starship was painted in red and grey along with the Aurebesh letters Wesk, Dorn and Isk.[1] It was named after both the gas giant as well as Bespin Direct, a separate spaceliner company from Star Tours that also was a member of the Galactic Tourist Bureau.

It was equipped with a hyperdrive and shielding systems, two flash cannons and two laser cannons. The ship was crewed by a pilot, a green-colored astromech droid and a systems analyst.[2] The ship could support up to 40 passengers.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Bespin Direct StarSpeeder 1000 was first introduced on The Walt Disney Company website in 2011 as a papercraft model.[1] The speeder was also released in the same year in a set of diecast toys, the StarSpeeder 1000 Spaceliner Collection.[2]

According to a Star Tours: The Adventures Continue poster sign, only Star Tours flew StarSpeeder 1000s, which confirms Star Tours ownership of this vessel.[5] The Japanese version, however, indicated that it was part of a separate company which was affiliated with Star Tours via the Galactic Tourist Bureau.[6]
