First forged in the Zentine Dynamics shipyards at Foerost, Ministry-Class Orbital Shuttles become the shot-trip workhorses for the Republic after The Great Sith War. Originally commissioned to help the Chancellor's bureaucrats tour the war-torn remains of the Republic (Hence the class name), Ministry-Class Orbital Shuttles- nicknamed "Minis" by their pilots- quickly come into general use.
Lacking Hyperdrives, the 20-meter-long Ministry-Class Orbital Shuttles perform a variety of duties. They are used as shuttles by Navy Capital Ships, and Republic scientists at Flashpoint Station use versions with strong shielding at their stellar research studies.
