Ambassadors to Naboo (3)
Basic info
First appearance: The Phantom Menace
Relations: Naboo
Summary
Ten years prior to the outbreak of the Clone Wars, the Trade Federation blockaded Naboo and planned to invade it in retaliation for the Galactic Republic's taxation of trade routes in outlying star systems. Unknown to the Republic, the Federation was controlled by the Sith Lord Darth Sidious - secretly Naboo's Senator Palpatine - who engineered the conflict so he could be elected Supreme Chancellor. Then-Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum dispatched Jinn and Kenobi to Naboo, tasking them with resolving the situation through diplomatic means. Upon arriving at the Trade Federation command ship, Jinn and Kenobi were escorted into a conference room, where they were told that Viceroy Nute Gunray would greet them. As the Jedi were waiting, the Federation leaders contacted Darth Sidious, informing him that the Chancellor's ambassadors were Jedi Knights. Sidious ordered their execution, while Jinn could sense the fear that the Neimoidians felt. This let Jinn know that this was not a normal trade dispute. These suspicions were confirmed when the Federation flooded the conference room with poison gas in an attempt to kill the Jedi, but the two were able to hold their breath long enough for the Federation to open the doors and inadvertently give the Jedi a chance to escape. They fought off the battle droids waiting outside the door and fled through the corridors, where they made their way into the ventilation system. Moving through the ventilation shafts, the Jedi made their way to the hangar, where they saw the Federation Army preparing to mount an invasion of the planet. The Jedi stowed away aboard separate ships, which made their way to the planet's surface and planned to warn the Naboo that the invasion was coming.
