I have never seen any scene in zero gravity or micro-gravity which makes me curious.

Does every spacecraft, pod, fighter, and shuttle in the universe get artificial gravity by design?

I am looking for canonical answers from films or officially copyrighted material owned by Lucasfilms (and Disney since 2015). Try to avoid fan fiction, or alternate universe novels and comics except as an aside to a canonical answer.

    I wouldn't think that the single fighter cockpit style ships would bother having artificial gravity. – Jack B Nimble Oct 21 at 17:43

To respond to the statement in the question: "I have never seen any scene in zero gravity or micro-gravity?" - there is a scene in the first / pilot episode of Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, Sabine and Chopper disable the artificial gravity on a transport ship.

It is noted that this ship normally comes equipped with working artificial gravity.

23mn into the episode, Agent Kallus is affected by microgravity

  • There are two other canon references to disabling artificial gravity listed in the sources here, but I don't have access to those resources, so I can't verify, thus not including them in the answer: starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Artificial_gravity – NKCampbell Oct 3 at 16:31
  • Wow I didn't remember that! The ship did actually have AG I think. – Vogon Poet Oct 3 at 16:43
  • @VogonPoet - it did have ag until it was turned off – NKCampbell Oct 3 at 16:47

    This is clearly not a ship built without artificial gravity; it's a ship with the AG turned off. Asker is looking for ships (of whatever size or purpose) built without AG. – Zeiss Ikon Oct 3 at 17:04

    OK you win. "By design" should fix it. ...And I can't just shut up. "Are there any convection ovens that don't have heat?" Of course! The ones that are turned off! LOL! Just frame it in the "quality answer" perspective. – Vogon Poet Oct 3 at 19:50
