The E3-standard starship lifeboat was a type of escape pod[2] manufactured by His Grace the Duke Gadal-Herm's Safety Inspectorate.[1] Grand Master Yoda used one in his journey to the planet Dagobah to live in exile after the rise of the Galactic Empire.[2]

Although small, the craft afforded reasonable living space for beings of Yoda's stature. The lifeboat served as Yoda's initial shelter, providing a convenient camp with protection from the torrential rains, pests and predators. However, it started to degrade within a year due to Dagobah's swampy environment. As the first shelter was consumed by the swamp, Yoda built a new home for himself (using several cannibalized parts from the pod) and lived there until his death.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The E3-standard starship lifeboat would have appeared in the 2005 film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith in a scene where Yoda travels to Dagobah on board the ship.[3] However, the scene was cut in the final compilation of the film. The Databank uses a footage from the deleted scene in Yoda Biography Gallery, in which the lifeboat is visible.[4] The name of the boat was confirmed to be canon in Ultimate Star Wars, a reference book released in April 28, 2015.[2]
