Naboo was a bountiful planet in the Mid Rim, close to the border of the Outer Rim. It was home to the Gungan species and to a population of humans known as the Naboo.
Naboo was notable as the home of Sheev Palpatine, who was appointed Senator to the Galactic Republic from Naboo. As part of his plan to eventually form the Galactic Empire, Palpatine convinced the Trade Federation to blockade the peaceful planet due to a dispute over trade route taxation. This resulted in Obi-Wan Kenobi and his master, Qui-Gon Jinn, being dispatched to Naboo to break the blockade, only to discover the Federation's plans to invade the planet. They subsequently fled the planet with Queen Padmé Amidala, only to eventually return to help liberate it with the aid of the young Anakin Skywalker. The mission was successful, but as a result Qui-Gon perished at the hands of Darth Maul, while the Zabrak was defeated by Obi-Wan, leading to him holding a decades-long grudge against the Jedi.
