|Naboo Royal Space Fighter Corps|
|Chronological and political information|
The Naboo Royal Space Fighter Corps (NRSFC) was part of Naboo's Royal Security Forces dedicated to protecting the citizens of Naboo which fought at the Battle of Naboo. They were also known as the Royal Naboo Starfighter Corps.
The pilots of this small corps flew Theed Palace Space Vessel Engineering Nubian-1 J Starfighters, commonly known as the Naboo Starfighter. As implied by the name, the N-1 J used dual Nubian radial sublight engines and an R2-series astromech droid for hyperspace coordination and navigation.
Although the NRSFC was strictly made up of volunteers, the pilots trained and drilled on a regular basis in their fighters. Their primary task was to serve as honor guard for the Queen or Senator, but the NRSFC saw their fair share of action in the Battle of Naboo, where they destroyed a Trade Federation Droid Control Ship with the help of young Anakin Skywalker.
The Space Fighter Corps comprised four starfighter squadrons: Alpha Flight, Bravo Squadron, Delta Flight, and Echo Flight. At the time of the Invasion of Naboo, all three were under the command of Captain Ric Olié, who flew as Bravo Leader during the orbital part of the Battle of Naboo.
The pilots of the Space Fighter Corps were known as a devil-may-care group, many of whom gained experience in off-planet Republic pirate fighter groups. While serving in the Space Fighter Corps, few pilots ever left the Chommell Sector, though some of the more skilled—or merely lucky—were chosen to fly royal escort duty to Coruscant.
Members of Bravo Squadron, including Porro Dolphe, escorted Senator Padmé Amidala's diplomatic barge to Coruscant during the Separatist Crisis, during which they suffered losses in an assassination attempt.
The Space Fighter Corps presumably continued to function during the Galactic Civil War, as N-1 starfighters were still in operation during the Battle of Naboo in 4 ABY,and were used to set off fireworks to celebrate the fall of the Empire.
