This article is about the shuttle. You may be looking for the walker barge.

The Theta-class T-2c shuttle,[1] was a model of shuttle used by the Galactic Republic and later, the Galactic Empire. During Darth Vader's duel on Mustafar against his former Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Sidious sensed that his newly appointed Sith apprentice was in danger, and ordered Captain Kagi to prepare his Theta-class T-2c shuttle for immediate takeoff to Mustafar.[2] One day after the formation of the Empire, Imperial Intelligence conducted a mass arrest of senators, resulting in 63 senators being arrested. A number of these senators were loaded into a Theta-class shuttle.[4] During the Berch Teller campaign, Moff Wilhuff Tarkin asked the captain of the Venator-class Star Destroyer Liberator for a Theta-class shuttle for transport to the Goliath.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Theta-class T-2c shuttle first appeared in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. It was designed as an homage to the Lambda-class T-4a shuttle that first appeared in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. The Theta-class shuttle's tri-wing design was made less angular with a less aggressive cockpit to soften the obviousness of the villain's transport. Though portrayed primarily in CGI in Episode III, the boarding ramp was made as a practical effect and shot against a greenscreen in the scene where Palpatine emerges with Anakin Skywalker's charred body on Coruscant.[5]
