ST 149 was a Delta-class T-3c shuttle that was used as a transport for Director Orson Krennic and his death trooper unit. Krennic chose the ship due to his appreciation for its unusual geometry, although he held no sentimentality for the craft. Captain Dunstig Pterro held more affection for the ship, nicknaming it Pteradon.
Leaving the Death Star and going to Eadu
Aboard the Death Star, Krennic had his own docking bay for his shuttle, adjacent to the Overbridge. He used the shuttle to leave the Death Star, to go to Eadu to meet with Galen at the Eadu Energy Conversion Laboratory. After the Rebel Alliance attacked the facility, Krennic evacuated in ST 249.
Going to Fortress Vader on Mustafar
Later, Krennic received a message to go meet with Darth Vader on Mustafar. Krennic travelled there in the shuttle. After his meeting with Vader, the director ordered a course set for Scarif.
Krennic arrived on Scarif in the shuttle. Somehow, Captain Pterro had ended back up aboard the Death Star, as he did not accompany Krennic or the shuttle to Scarif. During the Battle of Scarif, when the Rebels attacked the Imperial Security Complex to steal the real Death Star Plans, ST 149 remained parked on the executive landing pad for the entire battle. At the end, when the Death Star destroyed the Citadel Tower under Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin's orders and killed Krennic in the process, ST 149 met an unknown fate.
