    ok, put yourself into Han Solo's Place. You're a smuggler/rogue flying through the Star Wars Universe. You would need a partner, your own Chewie.

    What Species and Gender would you want? and Why?

    Female Zeltron because she can be very persuasive when she has to be.

    Mara Jade. ie Human Female
    Strong in the force, can pilot, has a lightsaber, would cook, clean and iron my clothes.
    and probably gets down and dirty when called upon by the Captain to perform womanly duties.

    I've got to go with a Dug for the Copilot. I have never had any interest in the Force, and LOVED the original Trilogy time period (no Jedi runnign around) a Dug, trained to pilot, fight (maybe a Teras Kasi fighter) And definately packing some blasters!

    I think I would choose some meltmassif as my copilot. I would call him Melty. And he shall be my meltmassif. And I would task him with no less than fifty chores every minute of the day. I could use him to make collect calls. Make a cup of caf. Consume ne'er-do-wells that sneak aboard my ship. Control aerial volcanoes. Harness the energy output of visitors aboard my ship.

    And I would never have to pay the electric bill again.

    I would choose Dobido for if I ever ran into Han and Chewbacca, I would know their weakness.

    Nautolan Male as Co Pilot, Human Female as Comm Officer, Cathar Male as Mechanic, R2 Unit as Navigator/Assistant Mechanic, Battle Droid (with Protocol Processor) as Financial Officer.

    I would like to think that as a Pilot, I would be a bit better off financially than Han at the outset of Star Wars. Assuming they aren't in a Galactic Recession...

    Now that I think about it, I'd probably want a droid crew. They're obedient, unwavering loyal, they can work at 100% capacity 24/7, they don't require food or water and you don't have to pay them a thing. Just as long as their programming is decent, not too stupid, not too smart.

    My meltmassif would eat your pitiful droids for breakfast.

    I cry for my computer or my phone when they die... Not really but I do get upset. It is a connection, you know?

    If you disconnected them then that wouldn't be an issue.

    Nah, it's addiction.

    Not judging you for that, I'm there. I don't cry when my computer or phone goes out, but I do let out a string of obscenities long enough to stretch from one coast of North America to another.

    My answer to the question would be: human male, must be hot, have a brain and a good sense of humor.

    IOW, a Han Solo who would actually shut up and let me pilot.
