A parsec was a unit of distance. Despite a parsec being a unit of distance and not time, Han Solo twice boasted about the speed of his spaceship by claiming it made the Kessel Run in "less than twelve parsecs." Solo was describing how fast and thus how close to a black hole his ship could fly; resulting in a straighter and shorter course on the Kessel run. Tatooine was less than a parsec away from Geonosis. The Kamino system was located twelve parsecs south of the Rishi Maze. During the Clone Wars, the planet Toydaria became vital to breaking the Separatist blockade over Ryloth because it was 2000 parsecs closer to the Ryloth system than the nearest Republic fleet.
