"Shuttle 593, this is Lothal Control. You are cleared to land."
Lothal Control to the crew of Shuttle 593[src]

Shuttle 593 was a Star Commuter 2000.[2] At some point during the fourth year before the Battle of Yavin,[3] Senator Nadea Tural of the Imperial Senate boarded the shuttle on her way to the planet Arkanis. However, the hyperdrive malfunctioned, causing the Star Commuter to crash. The senator was then rescued by the members of the rebel Spectre cell.[4] Later the same year,[3] the Spectres used the salvaged Shuttle 593 to make their way to Lothal without catching the attention of the Galactic Empire.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Shuttle 593 first appeared in Star Wars Rebels: The Siege of Lothal.[2] Martin Fisher confirmed that he intended the shuttle used by Nadea Tural in his short comic "Senate Perspective" to be same one.[5]
