Naboo Royal Cruiser
this was the sleek, wide-winged starship used by Senator Padme' Amidala to travel between Naboo and Coruscant, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. Like the Naboo Royal Starship, the Cruiser was chrome-plated, with visible seams that were simply decorative marking the gleaming hull. The wingspan of the Cruiser measured some ninety-one meters, and the ship's four main engines were mounted into the wings in the J-type configuration. This configuration gave the ship a top speed of 2,000 kilometers per hour in atmosphere, and it could move swiftly through hyperspace with a Class 0.7 hyperdrive. Being a diplomatic ship, the thirty-nine-meter-long Cruiser was sometimes called a Diplomatic Barge, and lacked true weaponry. However, the Naboo had learned their lesson during the Battle of Naboo, and provided the Cruiser with enhanced, redundant shielding. It was also escorted on all trips by four N-1 starfighters, which could link up to the wings of the Cruiser for refueling and during jumps through hyperspace. It was commanded by a pilot and co-pilot, and had deck stations for a navigator, a shield officer, and a communications officer. Four luxury cabins and six guard cabins completed the living quarters. Unfortunately for the Naboo, the Cruiser was destroyed shortly before the Battle of Geonosis, when Senator Amidala returned to the city-planet for the vote on the military Creation Act. The ship's landing platform was rigged with explosives by Jango Fett and Zam Wesell, who had been hired by the Trade Federation to eliminate the Senator. Senator Amidala was actually traveling in a support ship at the time, but her handmaiden Corde' died in the explosion.
