The Incident at Dorvalla marked a new development in the activities of the Nebula Front group.

Contents

Background

Prior to the incident, they had been content with peaceful protests, media campaigns, acts of civil disobedience, and simple acts of vandalism and theft to promote their agenda against the Trade Federation.

Now, with the rise of the group's militant wing under Havac Eru Matalis, the Front had hired notable mercenary Arwen Cohl and his team to engage in actual violent confrontation against the Federation and its allies.

The incident

The damage done to the Federation was physically small—it lost several droids, one of thousands of bulk freighters, a cargo of lommite ore that was recovered, and a shipment of aurodium (which was probably the most valuable of them all).

However, both Cohl and the Front's militant wing gained new-found respect in the eyes of those oppressed by the Trade Federation, and were viewed with a new sense of urgency by the Galactic Republic and Jedi Order (whose Knights, Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, had been present at the attack, albeit undercover).

Aftermath

The newly-perceived dangers of the Front inspired Viceroy Nute Gunray to order militarization of Federation ships and the Galactic Senate to consider taxation of trade routes in response, both of which led to the Eriadu Trade Summit - which itself led to the Blockade of Naboo.

In addition, the stolen aurodium later found its way into the InterGalactic Bank account of Finis Valorum, an event that sparked a scandal and paved the way to ease his removal from office.
