The Byblos Drive Yards’ G-1A Transport is one of the more versatile ships in the galaxy. It is able to fill the role of transport or starfighter without straining its design specifications in either capacity.

As a starfighter, it is one of the more nimble and robust in the galaxy for its size and is frequently seen in use by pirates and mercenaries due to its ability to take an enormous amount of punishment and continue functioning. The robust nature of the G-1A has saved the life of many who have found themselves on the wrong end of the long arm of the law. The only major drawback the G-1A faces is that it can dish out relatively little damage, featuring only a single pair of heavy lasers. Coupled with its remarkable maneuvering capabilities, however, the G-1A still makes for an ideal dogfighting vessel.

Due to the unique way in which the G-1A was designed, it can also serve as an excellent light transport. Although the stock model can only hold two passengers, the craft is easily modifiable to be able to hold a maximum of eight. Other popular upgrades include better sensors, armament, and shields. Byblos Drive Yards even tried to market the ship as an alternative to the Corellian Engineering Corporation’s venerable YT series with limited success.

As a transport, the G-1A has been popular as a personal escape ship. Faster and better shielded than an escape pod, it is able to flee to a friendly sector quickly and save its occupants. As some attention has been paid to aerodynamics and shielding, as well as to its appearance, it is used as a personal transport for some of the mid-level businessmen of the galaxy who want protection but also a sleek and fast ship.
