Boba Fett fans weren’t happy when they learned earlier this summer that Disney would be dropping the name of the bounty hunter’s iconic starship, the Slave 1. That hasn’t stopped the media conglomerate from officially rebranding the ship, however.

As revealed in a press release pertaining to “War of the Bounty Hunters,” an ongoing Star Wars comic crossover comprising limited series and one-shots, Boba Fett’s starship is now apparently called the Firespray. This is according to one of the bullet points that detail the event’s various blueprint variant covers with other memorable characters such as IG-88 and Bossk.

Star Wars fans don’t seem to be in love with the name thus far, but it’s certainly not the worst choice and is actually quite appropriate, being that it’s derived from the class of the ship itself. The Slave 1 has been categorized as a Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft, or, more simply, a Firespray-class interceptor in various texts.

Firespray will also presumably be what Boba Fett calls his starship in the upcoming Disney+ series. Dubbed The Book of Boba Fett, the series stars Temuera Morrison in the titular role alongside Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec Shand. It is slated for release in December 2021.
