Can any body explain how in The Empire Strikes Back the Millenium Falcon was able to travel from the asteroid field in the Hoth system to Bespin in a different system despite having a broken Hyperdrive?
To travel between systems at sub-light speeds would take years, decades ao even centuries.
I can only think that the Hyperdrive was only partially broken and able to make one short jump?
If any body can explain this then please enlighten me.
Both Hoth and Bespin are situated on the Ison Corridor, with one system between them - the Anoat system. From a few sources, we know that the Hoth asteroid field spilled over into the neighboring Anoat system, which would allow for relatively easy travel from Hoth to Anoat. From there, I believe the Falcon used its much slower backup hyperdrive to make the final jump to the Bespin system. Hope that helps. Grand Moff Tranner(Comlink) 15:36, August 14, 2011 (UTC)
