GAL 560 is Galactica's Colonial shuttle operating in or after 7348.
Lieutenant Starbuck pilots this shuttle for Commander Adama, Parrin and Grust, as Parrin shows him the Okaati fleet (Battlestar Galactica Classic #1).
- The shuttle's registry is a nod to John Jackson Miller's grandfather, who served aboard the U.S.S. LST-560 in World War II.
