The First Order Fleet Transport was a vehicle used by First Order troops, officers and personnel to travel quickly to different places aboard massive starships. They were piloted by astromech droids and programmed with ship schematics and security access codes. A Resistance unit hijacked a Fleet Transport to rescue a captured Resistance soldier, although the rescue became complicated when they unexpectedly encountered a pair of All Terrain Armored Transports.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The Fleet Transport serves as the ride vehicle for one of the attractions at the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land being built at Disneyland and Disney's Hollywood Studios. It was revealed in the form of a model at the 2017 D23 Expo's "A Galaxy of Stories" exhibit, but was first seen in Star Wars Battlefront II on the Unknown Regions map. It also appeared on promotional trading cards handed out at the December 16, 2017 "Galactic Nights" event, specifically on the card "the rescue doesn't go as planned", which revealed that one of the rides at the upcoming attraction entailed Resistance members hijacking a Fleet Transport to rescue a captured individual, but ended up caught and surrounded by AT-ATs. A full-sized vehicle displayed at Star Wars Celebration 2019 featured safety instructions in Aurebesh in addition to the standard English script.
