Summary
The J-type 327 Nubian Royal Starship (also known as the Naboo Royal Starship) was a starship used by Naboo Royal family during the Invasion of Naboo. It was commissioned by the Theed Palace Space Vessel Engineering Corps. An example of the marriage between art and design, the craft was designed to embody the glory of Naboo royalty which represented the noble spirit of the citizens of Naboo. It was, in fact, reserved only for use by the Naboo sovereign. Naboo engineers claimed that the Royal Starship was actually composed of two major components - the spaceframe and all the other components. This spaceframe, created by the skilled engineers of the Theed Palace Space Vessel Engineering Corps under the guidance of Staven Kremmo, was a single, long supple hull. The frame was covered in chromium, formerly used to shield starships from radiation and some forms of laser attacks, but later used simply in a time-honored tradition. Only the Queen's own vessel could be entirely chromium-covered, but royal starfighters, such as the Naboo N-1, had chromium on the front of their engines. Non-royal Naboo ships were forbidden to display chromium. During Queen Amidala's term in office, the Royal Starship was piloted by Ric Olie and a well-trained crew of technicians, engineers, navigators and diplomatic aides. The ship was furnished to accommodate the Queen's entourage, including handmaidens and bodyguards.
The rest of the ship's components were provided by the Nubian Design Collective, including the impressive T-14 hyperdrive generator. The T-14 was compact and accessible, unlike most other hyperdrives, and was powerful enough to take the ship from Naboo to Tatooine in a single jump even when damaged. It could also be raised from a compartment in the floor to allow easy checking, repairs and even complete replacement. The T-14 hyperdrive had a 327 core that gave the royal starship an impressive hyperdrive class of 1.8. The ship's Headon-5 sublight engines, which had been modified by the Naboo to be environmentally friendly, could exceed the speed of most starfighters.
