This issue the Official Star Wars Fact File looks at the Battle of Naboo, a sentry droid, a Gran, a wise General, the Nemoidian who doesn’t feature in RebelForce Radio podcasts, Watto’s world, the weapons of a Jedi and a heroic frigate. Plot the course, we’re heading for the core…

Battles and Events focuses on both the main Battle of Naboo as well as other conflicts happening around it while Droids and Machines looks at the Imperial Mark IV sentry droid, first seen in Mos Eisley in the Star Wars Special Edition. Humans and Aliens looks at Ask Aak, the Senator for Malastare after his predecessor Aks Moe was assassinated on the banking world of Aargau. We also focus on General Jan Dononna, the Rebel general who helped orchestrate the Battle of Yavin and then switch gears to Nute Gunray, the leader of the Trade Federation who wormed his way to power from a young age and who’s actions altered the course of galactic affairs, albeit all orchestrated by Darth Sideous.

Planets and Locations swoops down to Wattos Mid Rim home world of Toydaria while Weapons and Technology looks at the various equipment of the Jedi including comlinks and testing screens. We end the issue with Starships and Vehicles, looking at the Kuat Drive Yards Nebulon-B Escort Frigate, built for Imperial use but co-opted by the Alliance.

As ever the Official Star Wars Fact File hops the lanes to bring us a wide and varied selection of Star Wars knowledge, as it does every issue. So, have you subscribed yet?
