I changed this article as it was extremely poorly written. Lightman 15:46, 17 August 2006 (UTC)


What are the sources for the bit about the pilots having to maintain constant contact with Imperial forces and that the shuttle was destroyed? Fleet Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) (Data file) Imperial Emblem 21:12, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Emperor's Shadow Edit

Couldn't Emperor's Shadow be this shuttle, it definitely needs to be mentioned regardless. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 17:09, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

Behind the Scenes Edit

I'd like to point out that radio dramatizations are G-canon. Despite what might be mentioned in other sources, Luke escaped Death Star II in Palpatine's shuttle. 23:11, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

  • No, they're not. Only the actual movies themselves are G-canon; the radio dramas and novelizations are not. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit Calrayn 23:16, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

Emperor's Shadow, again Edit

Like Zeta pointed out a few years ago, shouldn't this be merged into Emperor's Shadow? The Shadow was described as Palpatine's shuttle AND as having a cloaking device. --LelalMekha (talk) 15:29, March 9, 2016 (UTC)

  • I agree, both articles describe the same ship. Darth Yarco (talk) 13:30, March 11, 2016 (UTC)
  • Despite the obvious similarities, this shuttle is described as having been destroyed in a hanger of the 2nd Death Star, while the Shadow is described as having crashed in an ocean on Kaal sometime after that. Since Jeng Droga was in another star system when that happened, those can't be reconciled by suggesting that Droga escaped from the Death Star before it blew aboard Palpatine's shuttle. The obvious answer is that, in the Legends continuity Palpatine had at least two cloaking device equipped shuttles and handed one of them (the Shadow) over to Droga for a separate mission. — Red XIV (talk) 22:53, April 27, 2016 (UTC)
    • However, I doubt any of the available sources actually established this shuttle was destroyed with the Death Star: I'm afraid this is mere speculation. I'll have to check those sources and properly reference this article. --LelalMekha (talk) 08:52, April 28, 2016 (UTC)
      • We do seem to have sources confirming that it was Vader's shuttle, not Palpatine's, that Luke used to escape the Death Star. But either way, it's established that Jeng Droga was aboard the Emperor's Shadow in a completely different star system at the moment that Palpatine died. And that Droga was sent out in it before Palpatine even arrived at the Death Star. Even if Palpatine's shuttle that he rode to the Death Star escaped destruction, it can't be the same ship as the Shadow. — Red XIV (talk) 12:05, May 1, 2016 (UTC)
