Darth Gore

James Taranto has the scoop:

"When the Falcon escaped Hoth, Darth Vader made it a priority to have it captured. Vader posted a reward, and dispatched a number of bounty hunters. One of them, Boba Fett, eventually captured [Han] Solo at Bespin's Cloud City. There, Solo was taken prisoner by Darth Vader, and underwent carbon freezing for transportation back to Jabba the Hutt."--description of "The Empire Strikes Back" (1980), StarWars.com

"Gore Plans to Initiate a Grass-Roots 'Carbon Freeze' Movement"--headline, Reuters, Dec. 10
