Suddenly changing the 'air-fuel' ratio of the Millenium Falcon, would, like in modern jet engines cause some instabilities and potentially stall the engine. One can assume ...

A rocket (or other propelled object, such as a YT-1300 Corellian Light Freighter) does not need to reach escape velocity to exit a gravity well, but it does need to overcome the acceleration due to gravity. Since gravity is inversely proportional to the square of distance, a ...
