Kitbashed is a great website that analyses the creation process of the Star Wars world. They recently posted a complete history of the Millennium Falcon, arguably the most recognizable spaceship in film history.

In fact it wasn’t even known by its famous name until well into production, having up until then gone under the much mundane moniker: Pirate Ship.
