    Leia; she's his soulmate and confident. No one knows him like she does. Plus the two of them make such a great team, just watch the movies :)

    Droma was a nice temporary fill for Han to get over Chewie, but I don't think he should be Han's co-pilot.

    Yeah. Ditto what sweetheart said. It's time for Han to make Leia his firstmate as well as his soulmate.

    I vote for Leia. Her and Han need to spend a lot more time together. They didn?t get to do that when she was still a mainstream politician and then when Han had his little problem with Chewbacca withdrawal. They have a lot of misspent time they need to make up for.

    I think Leia should become the official ambassador for the Jedi when the council is restored. The Princess of Blood ;) could be her diplomatic ship and Han can be her escort.

    The only choice for me is Leia. I'm so sick and tired of Han and Leia constantly being separated. That got old ages ago. Leia being Han's co-pilot would fix that overdrawn scenario.

    I say Droma. The pair fly the Falcon, which is used as Leia's envoy ship, like someone said above

    Dude,
    You forgot Han's best childhood friend, mentor and father-figure, Bey - the tall, hairy giant of a man.

    If there's anyone who could be a stand-in for Chewie, Bey is it.

    Although I was truly fond of Droma, and thoroughly enjoyed his contribution to Luceno's books, I think Leia is a more appropriate co-pilot, especially considering how many characters there are to keep track of overall right now.

    Leia, she just seems the best next to Chewie.

    No question, Leia should be Han's copilot. It's about time that the authors quit being so reluctant to put those together for more than a couple of pages per book.

    I still see Leia only as a person who fights only when its really needed. I can't see her co-piloting every mission. Droma would be the obvious choice, he has a reason to fight, and he's catching on quickly how to handle Han's moods.

    Although Leia would be quite competant...

    Leia. For me, these two are most enjoyable when together. I liked Droma fine, but I think Leia is the better choice.

    LOL... love the choices, especially Short-Round and Chewie's Brain. :) While I couldn't resist voting for Shorty, I do think Leia would definitely be the best choice for co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon.

    I don't think Leia's good enough to be a regular co-pilot during battles. I mean, she never got any traing in flying a Corellian Transport. Droma's all right although I don't particularly care for him. Bey would be all right. Roa would be better. Lando would probably be the best, but I don't see it happening for an extended period of time. I'm not completely sure. I'll have o think about it. Leia could be on the ship anyway. I believe she is a decent shot with the gunnery cannons. Too bad Jarik died in The Han Solo Trilogy. It would be perfect for him, Roa, Han. and Leia to be the ones on the ship. Han to fly, Roa to co-pilot and Jarik and Leia manning the guns. Lando would be a better gunner than Leia and Jarik actually but like I said I don't think he'd come along for an extended period of time. I'll have to think more to come up with some other good people for it who are still alive.

    I'd have to say Leia. H/L work good together and she's used to the ship. She seemed used to it in ESB, even though she complained. I think after 20 something years of basically having the Falcon as her ship too, is experience enough to be co-pilot. Did, I mention H/L work good toghther? ;)

    I had to vote for short round. Will he have to have blocks on his feet to fly it? ;)

    "basically having the Falcon as her ship too, is experience enough to be co-pilot."

    No, it's really not. She rarely ever actually flew it during these years. Han and Chewie handled that. She probably doesn't even know what all the buttons and switches do. She's certainly not familiar with the wiring, although nobody really is except perhaps Han and Chewie but he's gone now. I don't think she would be able to switch the shields back and forth at the proper times without crashing the system and do all the other things the co-pilot has to. And when Han has to run back to repair some wire or something during a fight Leia will have to pilot it. She's not that good a pilot. In fact she's a pretty bad pilot and that would not be good for anybody on the Falcon. She should stick to what she can do until and unless she learns how to fly the ship and be a co-pilot. She's a decent shot with the laser cannons.

    I dunno, I guess I'd have to disagree with you there Jarik. She's flown the ship plenty of times, and while she is no where near the pilot that Han is, it doesn't mean she's a bad pilot. I think most people would agree that Han is an exceptional pilot.

    And you're probably right in terms of being able to fix wiring and such, but she was fixing stuff in ESB... So she's not as good as Han and Chewie, but who else is? Luke, Anakin, Jaina? Plus you are forgetting that there is 20 plus years since the films. Leia knew enough about shields, how to read the instruments and how to fly back then. I think her experience since then on that ship would qualify her as a decent pilot. She doesn't need to be Rogue Squadron material to be good enough. Besides, if Han says he likes his new co-pilot just fine, well then I have to agree with him.;)
