During the attack on the junkyard settlement, Finn, Rey, and BB-8 flee the planet in the Millennium Falcon, which they steal from a junkyard. Despite being in a junkyard and not having flown in years, the ship in unsecured, the ramp is open, it powers up immediately, and the gun/cannon on the bottom is charged and ready for use.
