Qui-Gon Encounters Anakin (32BBY) (12)
Navigation (6)
Basic info
First appearance: The Phantom Menace
Relations: Tatooine
Summary
Due to the damage to the ship's hyperdrive sustained in the attack, the Qui-Gon Jinn decided to land on the nearby planet Tatooine instead of proceeding to Coruscant. While he, accompanied by Jar Jar Binks and Padme Amidala, searching for a new hyperdrive generator, they befriended young Anakin Skywalker, a slave boy, whose master was Watto, a Toydarian junk dealer. Another Jedi, Quinlan Vos, was on Tatooine on an undercover mission in the settlement of Mos Espa and witnessed an early meeting of Jinn and Anakin Skywalker, but decided against revealing himself to his Jedi friend. When Jinn's team reached Watto's junk shop, Watto inofrmed them them that he had the required parts in stock, but Qui-Gon was unable to purchase them, as Republic credits were worthless on Tatooine. Anakin was gifted with piloting and mechanical abilities, and have built an almost-complete droid named C-3PO. He also built almost working podracer that he planned to use in upcoming race. Qui-Gon sensed a strong presence of the Force in Anakin, and felt that he may be the Chosen One - the one who will fulfill a prophecy by bringing balance to the Force. By entering Anakin into a podrace, Qui-Gon orchestrated a gamble in which the boy (alone, since Qui-Gon was unable to include the youth's mother in the bargain) will be released from slavery while also acquiring the parts needed for their ship. The night before the race, Qui-Gon did a blood test on Anakin and discovered that the boy's midi-chlorian reading was off the chart.
