They are made of meat!
An amusing short story here
that gives a bit of unflattering perspective to the condition of humanity.

The Kessel Run
Solo in A New Hope brags that the Falcon made the Kessel Run in "less than twelve parsecs", referring to his ability to move the ship closer to the Maw's black holes and therefore cut the distance traveled. On the A New Hope DVD audio commentary, Lucas comments that, in the Star Wars universe, traveling through hyperspace requires careful navigation to avoid stars, planets, asteroids, and other obstacles. Since no long-distance journey can be made in a straight line, the "fastest" ship is the one that can plot the "most direct course", thereby traveling the least distance.
This is probably an ex post facto
bit of retroactive continuity, but I love it. It just works
You go, Lucas. You go.
