Naboo Royal Starship

The Queen's Royal Transport

Details

Description

The Naboo Royal Starship boasts a strikingly beautiful design that embodies the craftsmanship that prevailed in the peaceful years of the Republic. The polished, streamlined J-type 327 Nubian vessel lacks any offensive weaponry, but does feature strong shields and a competent hyperdrive.

During the Trade Federation invasion of Naboo, Queen Amidala and her retinue escaped aboard the Royal Starship. Piloted by Ric Olié;, the gleaming vessel narrowly avoided the Trade Federation blockade. It sustained damage to both its shield generator and hyperdrive, though the former was repaired by the ship's loyal contingent of astromech droids. With a leaking hyperdrive, the ship limped to Tatooine, where a replacement T-14 hyperdrive generator was procured.

Though the ship's hyperdrive carried it to Tatooine, it lacked enough power to continue the voyage to Coruscant. Qui-Gon took on the responsibility of securing a replacement T-14 hyperdrive generator from a junk shop on Tatooine.
