The Lando Calrissian Adventures is a series of novels by L. Neil Smith published in 1983 and released in an omnibus in 1994. They detail the experiences of Lando Calrissian as captain of the Millennium Falcon before he lost it to Han Solo. Lando is accompanied by his droid co-pilot, Vuffi Raa, and opposed by Rokur Gepta (part of a mystic order called the Sorcerers of Tund).

Behind the scenes

This particular series has a number of aspects especially peculiar to it. Many of them were later retconned to fit better into EU. Notable among them are:

  • Lando Calrissian's noteworthy achievements of saving or at least befriending no less than three highly advanced civilizations. Two of them (Sharu and Oswaft) were never mentioned again in EU except several RPG supplements and resource books. However, the third civilisation - the Silentium - appeared in brief excerpts from the Han Solo Trilogy when the droid character Vuffi Raa appeared and was mentioned as joining his impressively advanced comrades. The Silentium were also much later retconned to be one of the two warring factions provoking Yuuzhan Vong to hate technology.
  • Lando Calrissian's stingbeam-type blaster pistol was designed for trilogy and never mentioned again.
  • The weapons present on the Imperial starships in the third book are never mentioned anywhere else in EU.
  • Millennium Falcon's arsenal has different weapon placement than in movies and books. However, second tome of Han Solo Trilogy, The Hutt Gambit, reveals that in fact quad laser cannon's were originally installed in peculiar way and Han Solo, after winning the Falcon, changed their placement for both better range and greater cover area of fire.
  • Sabacc has slightly different rules than the card game mentioned in other EU works - few more cards and wild fives for example. However, it was later stated, that the game played throughout the Trilogy is simply a variant called Centran Sabacc.
  • Names of most of the mentioned planets had numbers, unlike most of planets mentioned elsewhere. However, all of the planets mentioned are located in a galactic region called Centrality. This could mean that Centrality regions were colonized and named in a quick way.

The trilogy was meant to be augmented with the Lando Calrissian Adventures Sourcebook by West End Games, but this project was canceled.

Two first tomes of Polish edition of the Trilogy had the front and back covers designed independently from the original cover art. However, the cover design of the aforementioned books had little in common with the story itself: Lando Calrissian and the Mindharp of Sharu had pictures Cloud City and Darth Vader next to Lando himself, while on Lando Calrissian and the Flamewind of Oseon's cover several Emperor's Royal Guardsmen surrounded Calrissian withe Tibanna gas platform and some thrantas in the foreground.
