During the early stages of the Galactic Empire's reign, the Inquisitorius, a special unit of Jedi hunters led by the Sith Lord Darth Vader, utilized a Zeta-class shuttle, the Infernum, during a mission to Mon Cala to hunt a probable Jedi advisor, revealed to be the former Padawan Ferren Barr, to the King of Mon Cala. The shuttle was later destroyed when Mon Calamari King Lee-Char ordered the destruction of all the surface cities on Mon Cala, including Dac City.
Years later, Vader, along with Fifth Brother, a red skinned Inquisitor, and a Twi'lek Inquisitor used a Zeta-class shuttle to return to Coruscant after hunting down and killing former Jedi Master Eeth Koth.
Three Zeta-class shuttles were also carried aboard the Strikefast, a Venator-class Star Destroyer commanded by Captain Voss Parck. The Chiss military commander Thrawn infiltrated the Strikefast and was cornered aboard one of the shuttles before willingly surrendering himself.
