Background: Jango Fett originally stole Slave I from Oovo IV, outfitting the craft with a number of weapons, including laser cannons, projectile launchers, and seismic charges. While under Jango’s ownership, the ship was in a dogfight over Geonosis with the Jedi starfighter piloted by Obi-Wan Kenobi.

After Jango’s death during the First Battle of Geonosis, the craft came into the possession of his son, Boba Fett, who used it throughout his own bounty hunting career. After several failed attempts to kill Jedi Master Mace Windu, the young Boba Fett, his ally turned mentor Aurra Sing, and Bossk traveled to the planet Florrum to meet with Sing’s friend, spice pirate Hondo Ohnaka.

After the arrival of the Jedi Master Plo Koon and Padawan Ahsoka Tano, Fett and Bossk were captured. When Sing tried to escape on Slave I, Tano leaped onto the ship’s hull and sliced off a wing with her lightsaber. After this, Sing lost control of the ship and it crashed, with the Jedi believing Sing to be dead. Ohnaka took ownership of Slave I for a short period of time, before it returned to Fett’s ownership near the end of the Clone Wars.

The ship became well-known to the galaxy’s fugitives, who recognized it as the ship owned by one of the galaxy’s deadliest bounty hunters. During the Galactic Civil War, the adult Boba flew Slave I to rendezvous with the Imperial fleet, where Darth Vader tasked Boba and a group of bounty hunters to capture Han Solo. Boba tracked Solo and his ship, the Millennium Falcon, to Cloud City. After Solo’s capture, Boba transported the carbon-frozen rebel into Jabba the Hutt’s custody at his palace on Tatooine.

After the war, Fett and his new partner Fennec Shand flew Slave I to the planet Tython, where they had tracked the Mandalorian Din Djarin and his Force-sensitive ward, Grogu. After Grogu was kidnapped by dark troopers belonging to Moff Gideon, Fett flew his ship into Tython’s upper atmosphere to identify Gideon’s light cruiser. With Djarin’s own ship destroyed and Fett now in Djarin’s debt to help protect Grogu, Fett agreed to fly Djarin to Nevarro aboard Slave I as part of his plan to retrieve the child.

Departing from Nevarro, Fett took Djarin and Cara Dune to the Karthon Chop Fields to retrieve Migs Mayfeld. He then flew the party to Morak, where Djarin and Mayfeld infiltrated an Imperial rhydonium refinery and Djarin accessed a computer terminal giving him the coordinates to Gideon’s vessel. After the two men finished the mission, Fett rescued them from the roof of the refinery. As Slave I was flying away from the scene, it was targeted by two TIE fighters. Fett used a seismic charge to destroy the fighters.
