Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi Easter Egg - Tantive IV in Battle of Endor?
I'm not sure if this is an egg. There is an extremely brief shot of the Tantive IV, or a ship of the same design, in the Battle of Endor. The ship was introduced in Episode III (Bail Organa's vessel), captured by an Imperial Star Destroyer at the beginning of Episode IV (the famous opening scene with Leia and the stolen Death Star plans on-board), but somehow survives until Episode VI. I can imagine why George Lucas might have inserted the ship (for sentimental reasons) near the end of the 3rd movie - remember, this was to complete the trilogy at the time.
