Emperor Palpatine's shuttle was an extremely well-guarded Lambda-class shuttle.

CharacteristicsEdit

The shuttle featured a cloaking device and was marked by a grey stripe on its nose.[1] It was presumably crewed only by a limited number of the Emperor's Royal Guardsmen.

HistoryEdit

Emperor Palpatine used it often on trips throughout the galaxy.

Arrival-ROTJHD

Emperor Palpatine arrives on the second Death Star.

Palpatine's shuttle was hit at least once in its career with the Emperor inside, in a premature (and inadvertent) shooting by attempted assassin Raygar. Raygar had been attempting to aim at the pod of a couple of Ewoks, Latara and Teebo; Raygar was punished by the Emperor for "high treason" after the incident.[2]

He used the shuttle to reach the second Death Star orbiting over Endor. Upon arrival, it disembarked at Hangar 272, with the Imperials honoring his arrival with air parades outside the station and the personnel, including a large amount of technicians, droids and military personnel standing at attention regarding their leader's arrival. The shuttle was destroyed when the battlestation was destroyed during the Battle of Endor.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Return of the Jedi radio dramatization states that Luke escaped the second Death Star in Palpatine's shuttle. The novel The Rise and Fall of Darth Vader counters this by stating that the escape was made in Vader's shuttle. Starships of the Galaxy states that Palpatine's shuttle was destroyed with the second Death Star, confirming that Luke did not use this ship. In addition, in the film itself, the shuttle in question lacked the gray stripe on its front, further confirming that the shuttle in question was not Palpatine's ship.
