The Star Seeder was 250 meters long and had a capacity of 3,000 cubic meters, within which could be stored 7,500 metric tons of cargo. It was crewed by 169 people and had room for up to 800 passengers. For defense, the class was armed with 6 turbolaser batteries, a tractor beam projector and a deflector shield.
The cargo area was divided into many different compartments, allowing colonists to transport different materials, tools, plants and wildlife in separate sections. The ship's hangar had enough space for a small shuttle, some speeders and other ground equipment, which could be brought down on a planet by the vessel itself.
