One of the cool things about the Falcon is how she literally becomes a character in The Empire Strikes Back. She's temperamental in the hangar on Hoth when Han is trying to take off. She refuses to boot up, Han whacks her on the panel, and she reluctantly complies. She knows something wrong with her systems, but she doesn't quite know what it is. Apparently on her own initiative, she actives her hidden gun and defends herself from the squad of snowtroopers who are trying to set up a blaster cannon that looks like it could totally disable her on the ground like that if it can get off even just one shot. It's an expansive handling of familiar elements, but it's subtle, kinda like R2 piloting the X-wing in the snow before Luke gets in it.
