The Eravana was a Baleen-class heavy freighter used for smuggling operations, piloted by Han Solo and Chewbacca. After losing the Millennium Falcon, Han and Chewie operated the Eravana for an unspecified number of years, making a fair amount of credits with their new ship, criss-crossing the galaxy smuggling cargo. 
- "What are you going to do?"
"Same thing I always do, talk my way out of it."
- ―Rey and Han Solo
Han Solo's freighter, the Eravana, had been boarded by two notorious criminal factions, the Guavian Death Gang and Kanjiklub, whom Solo was indebted to. Not wanting Rey and Finn to be involved, Han placed both of them in the lower corridors of the freighter while he and Chewie went to meet with the criminals, with BB-8 accompanying them. The smuggler tried but failed to convince both parties that he would fix things eventually, with the Guavian Death Gang negotiator, Bala-Tik recognizing the BB-8 astromech droid from a First Order bounty placed on it. They demanded that Han hand over the droid and any stowaways he might have on board. As the scuffle continued, Rey accidentally released three rathtars. They successfully escaped the gangs and jumped into hyperspace in the Falcon leaving the Eravana in the hands of the Guavians. Immediately, Bala-Tik ordered his men to inform the First Order that Han Solo and the droid unit had escaped from the ship.
Behind the scenesEdit
