|Docking Bay 94|
- "We'll leave as soon as you're ready. Docking Bay Ninety-four."
- ―Han Solo, to Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker
Docking Bay 94, one of Mos Eisley's 362 docking bays scattered throughout the city, was where the Millennium Falcon waited to rendezvous with Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, and C-3PO and where a notorious meeting between Jabba the Hutt and Han Solo took place about a spice shipment tragedy Solo had never paid back. Ohwun De Maal and his wife owned this bay along with several others nearby.
Docking Bay 94, like all of the bays in Mos Eisley, consisted of an entrance ramp and a restraining wall that surrounds a shallow pit. The pit absorbed and deflected the blasts made when starships landed or took off. By law, ships with repulsorlifts were required to use them when entering and leaving the docking bays. The docking bay became the scene of a firefight between Han Solo and a squad of stormtroopers led by Captain Mod Terrik, having been informed about the location of the droids by Imperial spymaster Garindan, as the former attempted to escape Tatooine with his passengers.
Showdown with Jabba in Docking Bay 94Edit
Shortly before he was forced to flee Tatooine, Han Solo was confronted by Jabba the Hutt and his gang in Docking Bay 94 over Solo's debt to Jabba and the recent killing of Greedo. Solo managed to sweet talk Jabba with the promise of a percentage of his next job and Jabba and his gang left.
Jabba's gang consisted of Jabba himself and the following:Boelo, Boba Fett, Unidentified henchman (Docking Bay 94), Unidentified Rodian 1 (Docking Bay 94), Unidentified Rodian 2 (Docking Bay 94), Unidentified Rodian 3 (Docking Bay 94) and Gela Yeens.
Behind the scenesEdit
The scene in which Han Solo and Jabba have a showdown over an unpaid debt went through numerous changes between the original release and the Special Edition, originally, the actor Declan Mullholland portrayed Jabba. Lucas states in the DVD commentry that he intended to replace Mulholland with a stop-motion puppet effect but as the budget and schedule were running well over what was expected the filmed scenes were shelved. Later, in 1997, digital technology allowed Lucasfilm to use a computer-generated imagery for Jabba the Hutt more in line as he appeared in Return of the Jedi. The Special Edition version is canonical.
The number 94 appears on the walls of the docking bay.
After killing Greedo, Han Solo went to docking bay 94. There, while Solo was talking to Jabba, it appeared that Greedo was shown in the background. However, it was a different Rodian working for Jabba. In fact, Jabba had three Rodians in his party, all similarly dressed.
