In “Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back” Han Solo and his crew are being heavily pursued by the Empire while aboard the Millennium Falcon. As TIE fighters and a Star Destroyer continue to pursue them, Han Solo decides that his best chance to escape is navigating an asteroid field. This of course is a rather challenging, high-risk feat that is reinforced by C-3PO’s calculations of Han Solo’s chances. The odds also happen to be worse than the chances of survival on Hoth.
