The Star Seeder was 250 meters long, could transport 800 people and had a cargo capacity of 3,000 cubic meters into which could be stored 7,500 metric tons. It was crewed by 169 people and had room for up to 800 passengers. For defense, the class was armed with 6 turbolaser batteries, a tractor beam projector and a deflector shield.
The cargo area was made into many different compartments, allowing colonists to transport different materials, tools, plants and wildlife in separate sections. The ship's hangar had enough space for a small shuttle, some speeders and other ground equipment, which could be brought down on a planet by the vessel itself.
