- "You're in charge of the cargo manifest, right?"
"Uh, yes. I have it right here."
- ―Anakin Skywalker and the Coronet's protocol droid
Cargo manifests (also known as ship manifests) listed all the particulars of the goods loaded on a vessel, for official and administrative purposes. The protocol droid stationed in the cargo bay of the starship Coronet maintained the vessel's cargo manifest, one which had been fraudulently altered by rogue Senator Tal Merrik. The manifest that accompanied Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's personal effects from his homeworld of Naboo to Coruscant stated that all four statues of the Sages of Dwartii were solid neuranium, even though one of them had been hollowed in the center to store Palpatine's lightsaber.
