Jendirian Valley was an AA-9 Freighter-Liner in service during the Separatist Crisis. After a failed plot to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala of Naboo, she and her Jedi escort secretly traveled back to her homeworld aboard the Jendirian Valley.
The Jendirian Valley was an AA-9 Freighter-Liner manufactured by Botajef Shipyards that could reach speeds of 420 kilometers per hour and was 390 meters in length. As a refugee transport, it had a passenger capacity of 30,000 and had over three months' worth of emergency consumables on board. It was equipped with a Class 4 hyperdrive, three powerful engines, a starboard and port boarding area, multi-deck accommodation, several cafeterias, and various service droids.
The Jendirian Valley was utilized as a refugee transport during the Separatist Crisis shortly before the Clone Wars. After a plot to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala of Naboo failed, the Jedi High Council thought it better that she be sent back to her homeworld using unregistered transport and protected by a Jedi escort.
Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi was dispatched to track down her assassin, while Padawan Anakin Skywalker and R2-D2 were sent with Amidala. Amidala, Skywalker, and R2-D2 boarded the Jendirian Valley in the western spaceport of Port Quarter on Coruscant. They eventually reached Naboo.
