Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Legacy Era Campaign Guide
The Koensayr J-1 Shuttle is sometimes known as the Jedi Shuttle, as it is originally commissioned by the Jedi Council to serve as a long-range shuttle-craft for use by The Jedi Order. Originally intended to carry Jedi students from Coruscant to Ossus and back, the J-1 Shuttle is more like a transport in function, though its docking, restocking, and refueling systems are designed to be compatible with those found aboard most Galactic Alliance Capital Ships. Available for general sale by Koensayr, the ship frequently finds it way into the hands of others despite becoming a recognized icon of The Jedi Order.
The elongated cockpit, with its expensive multi-level canopy, enables passengers and crew to observe their surroundings while in flight or on approach. Passengers board the shuttle via an aft hatch, although a small topside hatch is also available for docking purposes. The main body holds two decks. The upper deck contains passenger amenities, such as sleeping berths and common rooms. The lower deck is mostly taken up by a large cargo hold that can double as a small hangar, able to carry a Gargantuan or smaller Starfighter. The hangar doors are located in the shuttle's underbelly, so a smaller ship can only dock or depart while the J-1 Shuttle is in flight.
The ship's sublight engines are mounted within its gull-shaped wings. Most Jedi Shuttles are unarmed, reinforcing the notion that The Jedi are peacekeepers. However, during The Sith-Imperial War, some shuttles are retrofitted with weapons.
