GM Notes: Purchase costs (new or used) for the Landing Sphere were never listed by West End Games in "Galaxy Guide 8", so I calculated costs for the Landing Sphere based on the new purchase prices of other Airspeeders. As always, the new purchase price for the Landing Sphere has been provided for the benefit of repair cost rules.
Exterior Design Notes: This shuttle is fully reuseable and can be restocked, refueled, and serviced by the facilities onboard the host SkyBlind Recon Ship. It is capable of ship to ship, surface to orbit, and orbit to surface transport of crew and passengers. Landing spheres possess slave circuits, and can also serve as backup bridge controls for the host SkyBlind, or it can serve as an escape pod if a pilot is available.
