Neimoidians are a species of green humanoids native to the Star Wars galaxy, closely related to Duros. Neimoidians held all known high positions in the Trade Federation and have been stereotyped as cowardly and greedy, despite the existence of Neimoidian soldiers seen briefly in Revenge of the Sith. Neimoidian society is said in certain behind-the-scenes books to be very highly Social-Darwinian, with many more Neimoidians being born than survive to adulthood. It seems that there is at least some purposeful withholding of food from the aquatic larvae in order to encourage survival of the strongest and most cunning.
