- "The droid defenses have been rendered inoperable by makeshift electrostatic field generators."
- ―Sidious informs Maul of the situation in the Kellux system
Electrostatic field generators were devices that could be used to disable droids. Sometime prior to the Battle of Naboo, a faction of pirates used makeshift electrostatic field generators to disable the droid defense forces of Trade Federation mining facilities in the Kellux system. The Sith Lord Darth Sidious then sent his Sith apprentice Darth Maul to kill the pirates.
