The E3-standard starship lifeboat was a type of escape pod. Grand Master Yoda used one in his journey to the planet Dagobah to live in exile after the rise of the Galactic Empire.

Although small, the craft afforded reasonable living space for beings of Yoda's stature. The lifeboat served as Yoda's initial shelter, providing a convenient camp with protection from the torrential rains, pests and predators. However, it started to degrade within a year due to Dagobah's swampy environment. As the first shelter was consumed by the swamp, Yoda built a new home for himself and lived there until his death.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The E3-standard starship lifeboat would have appeared in the 2005 film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith in a scene where Yoda travels to Dagobah on board the ship.[2] However, the scene was cut in the final compilation of the film. The Databank uses a footage from the deleted scene in Yoda Biography Gallery, in which the lifeboat is visible.[3] The name of the boat was confirmed to be canon in Ultimate Star Wars, a reference book released in April 28, 2015.[1]
