The Nebula Front was a radical political group which existed prior to the Invasion of Naboo. At a trade summit between the Trade Federation and Galactic Republic on Eriadu, the Nebula Front attempted to assassinate Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum, and successfully assassinated the leadership of the Trade Federation.
The attempt on his life was a brief popularity boost to Valorum, allowing him to pass a taxation proposal, and the death of the Trade Federation's leadership allowed Nute Gunray to ascend to power as Viceroy of the Trade Federation. Gunray, who leaned anti-Republic, replaced much of the leadership with like minded individuals, thus planting the seeds for a later conflict between the two parties.
