OOM-9 (2)
Basic info
First appearance: The Phantom Menace
Model: B1 Battle Droid
Events: Fall of Theed, Battle of the Great Grass Plains
OOM-9 was a B1-Series battle droid created by Baktoid Combat Automata prior to the invasion of the planet Naboo in 32 BBY. OOM-9 was selected to serve as a command battle droid for the invasion, leading Trade Federation forces into battle and achieving great success during the early stages of the campaign. Under OOM-9, Trade Federation troops defeated the forces of the Naboo at Harte Secur and Spinnaker, before capturing the capital city of Theed. With news of a primitive species residing in the planet's swamps - the Gungans - reaching the Trade Federation, OOM-9 was charged with hunting them down, but had limited success. When the Sith Lord Darth Maul arrived to take control of the Federation forces, he personally recovered information which led to OOM-9 forcing the evacuation of the underwater city of Otoh Gunga.
The invasion ultimately turned against the Trade Federation when the Gungan Grand Army rallied to the cause of Naboo Queen Amidala and moved to engage the Trade Federation Droid Army on the Great Grass Plains. OOM-9 was once again charged with leading the battle droids to victory and soon overwhelmed the Gungan forces. However, the concurrent space battle went against the Trade Federation, seeing the destruction of a Droid Control Ship. With the loss of the control ship, OOM-9 and his troops powered down, halting on the verge of victory.
