Description: 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. They were instrumental in carrying Kyber crystals during the construction of the Death Star.

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.

The craft were used by the Empire sometime after the Clone Wars, with three carried aboard the Strikefast. The military commander Thrawn infiltrated the Strikefast and was cornered aboard one of the shuttles before willingly surrendering himself.

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.
Before the Jedha insurgency started, the Guardians of the Whills Baze Malbus and Chirrut Îmwe raided an Imperial supply convoy dropped off at LZ-Cresh by a cargo shuttle.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.
At least two were present on an Imperial shipyard over Fondor when it was attacked by Rebels.
