Star Wars: The Ultimate Gamble
The Massacre on Naboo
The Massacre on Naboo was the name given to the events after the Battle for Naboo. During the battle Naboo Security forces failed to liberate the planet from The Trade Federation. A mysterious Sith Agent slayed the Jedi Councilors sent to protect Queen Amidala. The Queen managed to escape with a small security force and an R2 unit. A small boy from Tatooine lost his life when he accidentally launched a Naboo starfighter into the battle occurring above the planet. The heaviest losses during the battle where sustained by the native Gungans who died while fighting for the Royal Naboo forces.
Months following the battle it was discovered that the Trade Federation forces slaughtered most of the combatants and many civilians after they had surrendered. The outcast Queen Amidala used the horrible atrocities to gain back control of her planet and leveraged herself significant amounts of political power as the now permanent Queen of Naboo as well as a seat on the republic senate which she served until she became the Chancellor then Empress.
