When Rey was left on Jakku, she faintly remembers seeing a starship leave Jakku.

We're given a little glimpse of the Starship in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Who owned that Starship?

As in, was it a First Order / Empire Starship or a "good guys" Starship?


Obviously this would be a huge clue into who left her there (maybe), but I do understand that there may not be an answer for it at this time.

  • We don't know yet. It wasn't covered in novelization or the script in any detail. It was a minor sub-second image in the film. Nothing in any reference books published. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Jan 8 '16 at 4:55
  • I don't think we have any clues to that until Episode VIII. Until then it's all speculation. – Jane S Jan 8 '16 at 4:55

    @calccrypto I wouldn't say future-works questions are off-topic; the intention is to put them on hold temporarily, with the intention of re-opening them later – Jason Baker Jan 8 '16 at 6:11

    @Mooz I know I didn't notice its type. – user1027 Jan 8 '16 at 18:10

We don't know anything about that ship yet.

  • Novelizations don't say anything at all

  • WGA script just says:

      little girl. Rey as a child. She is sobbing, hysterical.
      Unkar Plutt's meaty hand holds her thin arm. She is on Jakku,
      watching a starship fly into the sky, abandoning her.
      YOUNG GIRL
      No, come back!
      (CONTINUED)
      CONTINUED:
      UNKAR PLUTT
      Quiet, girl!
      The ship flies towards the desert sun, which is strangely
      eclipsed, as if being eaten by darkness. Rey looks around her to see she is..
    
  • Available stills do NOT help much, but it sure as hell doesn't look like Falcon. Or anything else too familiar.
