The Cake that Made the Kessel Run in Less Than Twelve Parsecs [Pic]

Om nom nom nom. Oh, and yes, we’re very much aware that a parsec isn’t a unit of time, but of distance.

Solo was not referring directly to his ship’s speed when he made this claim. Instead, he was referring to the shorter route he was able to travel by skirting the nearby Maw black hole cluster, thus making the run in under the standard distance. By moving closer to the black holes, Solo managed to cut the distance down to about 11.5 parsecs. [Source]

  1. And it's a wedding cake! Love the storm trooper & bounty hunter helmets tied like tin cans & old shoes to the rear! The happy couple are either both uber-geeks, or one of them is reallllllly, realllllly tolerant…..lol!

  2. I love this cake… almost as much as I love the fact that they came up with that entire elaborate back story to explain a badly written throwaway line, that's not a Trek fan ragging on Star Wars, I like them both, and I do think this is clever…. Trust me, I cringe everytime Scotty says "transwarp computer drive" in The Search For Spock..
