    FYI an parsec is about 31 trillion clicks. Distance not time.

    Parsecs measure distance, not time…

    I learn something new every day…hell, learned two thing today. First, parsecs meaure distance not time. Second, Trekkies are still know-it-all geeks.

    The movie explained it as the ‘run’ being 20 parsecs long, and Solo taking a shortcut to shorten it to 12. That doesn’t mean you can use parsecs as a measure of time, which is what you’ve done here.

      Dude, eventually you’ll work it out. Time and space, it’s all about getting from one location to another.

      The Kessel run is actually 18 parsecs and he doesn’t take a shortcut – he flies closer to the Maw cluster of black holes, cutting the distance to about 12 parsecs. He wasn’t referring to speed or distance in the quote, he was bragging that his ship was fast enough to fly that close to the black holes, cutting the distance to 12 instead of 18.

      All that math 101 crap falls apart once you can grok makin’ the jump to hyperspace: distance IS time. And don’t start in with any of that “goin’ to plaid” jackassery, hyperspace is hyperspace.
