The '''Eriadu Trade Summit''' was an event proposed by [[Senator/Legends|Senator]] [[Palpatine/Legends|Palpatine]] in [[33 BBY/Legends|33 BBY]], ostensibly to gather all parties affected by [[Supreme Chancellor/Legends|Supreme Chancellor]] [[Finis Valorum/Legends|Finis Valorum's]] proposal to allow the [[Trade Federation/Legends|Trade Federation]] an increase in standing permissible armament in exchange for [[Galactic Senate/Legends|Galactic Senate]] taxation of free-trade zones. The [[Nebula Front/Legends|Nebula Front]], a radical political group that opposed the Trade Federation, was specifically not allowed to attend the event. That decision, as it combined with the Front's longstanding disquiet and its mistrust of the Republic Senate, resulted in the first of two staged 'attempts' on Valorum's life by the spurned Nebula Front's extremist leadership&mdash;the first occurring on [[Coruscant's News Desk|Coruscant]], and the second, at the Summit itself. The well-publicized event was held on the [[Planet/Legends|planet]] of [[Eriadu/Legends|Eriadu]], an important trade world in the [[Outer Rim Territories/Legends|Outer Rim]].

As it played out, however, the Trade Summit ended in disaster. The majority of the [[Trade Federation Directorate]]&mdash;the enemy's true target&mdash;was assassinated by its own security force in a plan carefully orchestrated by [[Darth Plagueis/Legends|Darth Plagueis]] and [[Palpatine/Legends|Darth Sidious]], who made the [[Nebula Front/Legends|Nebula Front]] appear responsible for the murders. No consensus was reached at Eriadu regarding the taxation of trade routes, and the Trade Federation was placed under the leadership of [[Nute Gunray/Legends|Nute Gunray]], who would proceed&mdash;in protest of the Senate's subsequent legislation to tax the free-trade zones anyway, without any reciprocal agreement to benefit or protect the Federation whatsoever&mdash;to blockade all trade to the planet of [[Naboo/Legends|Naboo]].

In [[33 BBY/Legends|33 BBY]] increased political pressure was placed on [[Finis Valorum/Legends|Finis Valorum]], the [[Supreme Chancellor/Legends|Supreme Chancellor]] of the [[Galactic Republic/Legends|Galactic Republic]], by the [[Trade Federation/Legends|Trade Federation]] and its political allies regarding his proposal to tax trade routes in the outer systems. In order to discuss Valorum's proposed legislation, the [[Senator/Legends|senator]] from [[Naboo/Legends|Naboo]], [[Palpatine/Legends|Palpatine]], suggested that a summit be held on the [[Outer Rim Territories/Legends|Outer Rim]] [[Planet/Legends|planet]] of [[Eriadu/Legends|Eriadu]], where the [[Trade Federation/Legends|Trade Federation]] and its delegates could share their ideas on the proposed legislation and debate with their political opponents. The summit was to serve as a platform for all relevant parties to express their viewpoints on the taxation of the outer trade routes; as such, all voting on the matter was postponed until the summit's completion.<ref name="cod" />

The summit itself was held in [[Seswenna Hall]] in [[Eriadu City/Legends|Eriadu City]]. Organizations and governments invited to the Summit included the [[Association of Free Trade Worlds]], the [[Commerce Guild/Legends|Commerce Guild]], the [[Corporate Alliance/Legends|Corporate Alliance]], the [[Hutt/Legends|Hutts]], the [[Rights of Sentience League]], [[Senex sector/Legends|Senex sector]], the [[Stark Veteran Assembly]], the [[Techno Union/Legends|Techno Union]], and the [[Trade Federation/Legends|Trade Federation]]. Although the Republic was represented by Valorum personally, many of its member [[Planet/Legends|worlds]] were allowed their own delegations, including [[Bothawui/Legends|Bothawui]], [[Clak'dor VII]], [[Falleen (planet)/Legends|Falleen]], [[Malastare/Legends|Malastare]], and [[Sullust/Legends|Sullust]]. The [[Nebula Front/Legends|Nebula Front]] itself was not invited despite its concerns regarding the Trade Federation, because Valorum believed that it would only grant them unwarranted legitimacy.<ref name="cod" />

The [[Nebula Front/Legends|Nebula Front]], however, was concerned that the Trade Federation would pass on the additional costs of taxation to those who used their shipping services. Having been denied a voice at the trade summit, the Nebula Front's enigmatic leader [[Eru Matalis]]&mdash;known to his allies as [[Havac]] (but who, as the Front's former Eriadu-cell leader, was under secret conscription to Eriadu [[Lieutenant Governor]] [[Wilhuff Tarkin/Legends|Wilhuff Tarkin]] in league with higher and [[Palpatine/Legends|darker powers]])&mdash;made 'plans' with the mercenary [[Captain/Legends|Captain]] [[Cohl]] to assassinate Valorum during the trade summit (a sinister decoy to the real target: the [[Trade Federation Directorate|Federation Directorate]]). The Front's 'official' intent, as propagated by its extremist leader, Havac, was to prevent the new taxation in the hope that the outer worlds could avoid increased shipping costs while the Front continued its campaign of violence against the Trade Federation; a more moderate (and less violent) faction of the Front wished for more temperate means to achieve its goals.<ref name="cod" />

As the Eriadu Summit was essentially a meeting of the Republic and Trade Federation, those organizations were represented by their leaders, the [[Supreme Chancellor/Legends|Supreme Chancellor]] and the [[Trade Federation Directorate|Directorate]], respectively. However, it was to be a serious mistake; in an act orchestrated by [[Palpatine/Legends|Darth Sidious]], [[OOM security battle droid|security droids]] assassinated six of the seven Directorate members as the Front's extremist leadership (the founder of its militant wing) created an illusion: Havac staged (for the second time in weeks) a falsely orchestrated 'attempt' on the life of Valorum, to conjure in the Republic's mind an overwhelming bias not only for the suspected target, but also for the 'obvious' culpability of the Nebula Front (that is, the ''conglomerate, seemingly united public face'' of its disparate factions). In the end, the Nebula Front was held responsible for all murderous attacks&mdash;both true ''and'' feigned&mdash;that occurred at the Trade Summit.<ref name="cod" />

As a repercussionistic sidenote to this Trade Summit account, Palpatine&mdash;who made a brief Naboo stopover visit at the request of [[King/Legends|King]] [[Ars Veruna]] on his way to the Eriadu summit from Coruscant&mdash;had, by the time he reached Eriadu, already been apprised of the imminent [[Bando Gora/Legends|Bando Gora]]-[[Gardulla Besadii the Elder/Legends#Gardulla's revenge|Gardulla]]-[[Black Sun/Legends|Black Sun]]-Veruna plot to kill [[Hego Damask]] (Palpatine's master, [[Darth Plagueis/Legends|Darth Plagueis]]): the self-same nuclear [[Bombing of Sojourn|bombardment]] of the [[Sojourn|Sojourn-moon]] that Palpatine himself had orchestrated, unbeknownst to his unwitting pawns (and clearly also to his own dark 'master'). A drunken Veruna gloated amidst a banquet thrown for his dark accomplices (all of whom, it appeared to Palpatine, were in attendance<ref>Veruna's banquet, it seems, was organized really for himself: to drown out (perhaps with the little extra help of flowing '[[blossom wine]]' and other inebriants) the raucous clamor of celebration happening just outside in the [[Theed/Legends|Theed]] [[Palace Plaza/Legends|Palace Plaza]], where hordes of enthusiastic [[Naboo (people)/Legends|Nabooian citizens]] had gathered to hear young [[Padmé Amidala/Legends|Padmé Naberrie]] speak (soon to be Amidala). Attending the King's extravagant 'counterevent' in the [[Theed Royal Palace/Legends|palace]] [[Throne room (Theed Royal Palace)/Legends|throne room]] were Veruna's most corrupt supporters and highly dubious offworlders, including [[Alexi Garyn]], head of the [[Black Sun/Legends|Black Sun]] crime syndicate, and crimelord [[Gardulla Besadii the Elder/Legends|Gardulla the Hutt]] with her retinue of [[Bando Gora/Legends|Bando Gora]] [[Terrorist/Legends|terrorist]] leaders. Palpatine could easily sense that the drunk and agitated King of Naboo—faced with allegations of corruption in an ongoing [[Foreign Affairs scandal|foreign affairs scandal]], the threatening outcome of the Eriadu Trade Summit just getting underway, and, of course, a most formidable rising opponent to his retention of the throne—was about to buckle and break under the sheer weight of it all. The [[Senator/Legends|senator]] was fully confident that Veruna would collapse at the foot of his gaudy throne, in a pathetic heap of [[Politics/Legends|political]] self-destruction, very soon. —''Darth Plagueis'', chapter 26: ''Their Baser Nature''</ref>) that the King was now, even as he spoke and the Trade Summit events unfurled, 'ending' his partnership with both Damask and the Trade Federation&mdash;bragging that the senator need not bother about giving any sort of warning to his [[InterGalactic Banking Clan/Legends|IBC]] associate, for ''Palpatine would not be seeing him again''. Which is to say, that the nuclear run on Sojourn was being carried out at that very moment. But despite what were meant to be vitriolic, hurtful words at the senator's expense, Palpatine/Darth Sidious silently gloried in the sublime ignorance of everyone about him, quietly amused himself with the wholly painless jabs of his would-be injurers: the Naboo senator couldn't have been more delighted that a nuclear bomb was on its way to Sojourn, where his unsuspecting 'master' was surely laboring diligently in his life-extension labs, busy in his quest for everlasting life through [[midi-chlorian manipulation]].

It was only a short time later, amidst the rousing orchestral music that preceded the commencement of the Trade Summit event in Eriadu City's [[Seswenna Hall]], that Naboo's senatorial delegate to the Galactic Republic mentioned to a small group of fellow senators also in attendance ([[Orn Free Taa/Legends|one of whom]] had noticed Palpatine's rather pensive demeanor, a seeming preoccupation) that he'd just learned of ''King Veruna's sudden abdication of the throne''. This gossip-inducing news&mdash;communicated to Palpatine by Damask himself, and which had occurred, the Muun said, immediately after [[Jabba Desilijic Tiure/Legends|Jabba the Hutt]] had delivered to the Naboo monarch the startling revelation of his bitter enemy's almost-miraculous survival of Sojourn's nuclear blast&mdash;defined a watershed event for the future of the galaxy (for it marked Amidala's rise to the throne and all that would flow from that seminal event).
