Objective: Maintain control of Naboo. In order to accomplish this goal, it is necessary to prevent the Viceroy's capture by eliminating any attackers encroaching on Theed.

Enemy Assets:

  1. Several hundred Gungan warriors, armed with energy spheres.

  2. Two Jedi knights.

  3. Several dozen Naboo palace guards.

  4. The mighty Jar-Jar Binks.

  5. One squadron of Naboo starfighters.

Friendly Assets:

  1. One bad-ass Sith Lord.

  2. One TradeFed battleship in orbit (two miles wide, torus configuration, converted from a freighter).

  3. Hundreds of battle droids, including infantry, officers, and droidekas.

  4. Dozens of repulsorlift tanks.


Could the Federation have succeeded where the Trade Federation failed?

Flip side: how would the Federation fare in place of the Naboo?

Conclusions: The Federation's transporter technology, coupled with minimal resources on the part of the Naboo, would have probably given them an easy victory in place of the Trade Federation (although it should be noted that the Trade Federation also should have won easily, but for the Viceroy's stupidity). However, a small squad of Federation infantrymen would have been slaughtered by Darth Maul if they attempted to duplicate the Naboo attack on the palace. I would give the Federation 1 for 2 in this battle.
