The one-man Naboo N-1 Starfighter was originally developed by the Theed Palace Space Vessel Engineering Corps for the volunteer Royal Naboo Security Forces. Due to the relative poverty of the planet Naboo at the time, they chose to combine functionality with a sleek look, hoping to impress their neighboring systems. Due to these cutbacks these starfighters are amongst the cheapest production vessels in the galaxy. However, despite the fact that they are cheap to produce and easy to come by, they are still quality ships able to outgun and out fly almost any other starfighter. The revolutionary finials projecting from the engines make this fighter easier to handle during atmospheric flight than most ships produced during the same era. Only the Nubian Monarc C-4 hyperdrive seems a bit dated at this time, but this is more than compensated by the weapon array on the N-1. Many a modern starfighter pilot has turned up his nose at flying one of these, but later found himself at the receiving end of one of the ships torpedoes. The ship is a classic that can still take care of business.
Due to the relatively low overall weapon loadout, the N-1 fighter is regarded by some as being a sub-par fighter model in recent times. The somewhat less than impressive hyper and sublight speeds also lend to this opinion. However, the fighter carries both anti-fighter as well as anti-capital ship weapons. Thus, the cheap production cost and relative versatility of this fighter lends itself towards being an all-purpose craft. The Proton Torpedo Launcher can be used with great effect against larger vessels, while the twin Heavy Lasers are just as effective against enemy fighters. Although often passed over for heavier armed, more expensive fighters, this ship can occasionally be spotted among the defense fleets of certain planets, or the personal fleets of those who admire this relic of a former era.
