The Zeta-class cargo shuttle was a type of shuttle used by the Galactic Empire in its fight against the Alliance to Restore the Republic. Directly before the Battle of Yavin, hundreds of these shuttles were used during the Imperial occupation of Jedha to transport kyber crystals for the purpose of powering the Death Star's superlaser. A number of these shuttles were also present for the Battle of Scarif, a successful attempt by the Rebel Alliance to steal the plans for the Death Star.[2]

Zeta-class cargo shuttles were routinely supplied with clearance codes for accessing restricted space under Imperial control. Such codes would be redacted in the event that a shuttle was found to be long overdue from its intended destination.[2]

The Eta-class supply barge was a similar, albeit much larger variant of the Zeta-class.[1]

CharacteristicsEdit

The Zeta-class cargo shuttle featured two levels: an upper deck that housed the ship's controls, and a ventral cargo deck that could be detached and dropped off at a location. The shuttle also had four wings that retracted inwards when landing and outwards when in flight, similar to the Lambda-class T-4a shuttle. In terms of armament, the shuttles featured two wing-mounted heavy laser cannons and three hull-mounted laser cannons.[1]
