The "Trillium Falcons" PO was Hans Solo. He used it as a trade vessel and for smuggling the occasional rebel out from under the noses of the Canadian Empire.

Explanation edit. Star Wars -Hans Sole's ship was the Millennium Falcon. Did I get it Mike?

The Trillium Falcon was the molded fiberglass prototype for Han's' Millenium Falcon, but it turns out that m.f doesn't do so well at warp speed.

Ummm... Mixing Star Wars and Star Trek terms can really ruffle some feathers. I don't mean to geek out, but there was a news group that I used to read were there was an on going, never ending, discussion about which would have an advantage in battle, the Star Destroyer, or the Enterprise.

Which part of my post did that???

Isn't the "Millenium Falcon" the name of Han Solo's (Star Wars) ship?

Where does Star Trek come into it???

Francesca

P.S.

Please don't send anyone to my house to do that "Vulcan Noogie" thing to my neck...

Sorry I am a Star Wars geek.
In Star Trek it is Warp Drive, in Star Wars it is Hyper Drive.
Before my youngest was born, my wife told me that she wanted to name the child Luke if it was a boy, and Leia if it was a girl. Since I did not want to have that argument, I just hoped for a boy. Young Luke is now six.

That's....really interesting!

How many seconds old was he the first time you said
(deep voice): "Luke, I am your father"?

Well, I'm comforted to know that I might not be the only person around here who makes phone calls like, "Dad, I think we need to do a Level Three Diagnostic on the wiring..."

windows triming

Hi,
I'll start restoring my trillium in april and i'm already shopping for all the parts and things needed for the restoration.
I would like to know where you bought the rubber (or plastic) windows trimming.
Also, did you find the trimming for the Belly Band?
Thanks
