The Neimoidian trader was an unarmed repulsorcraft employed by the Trade Federation to transport trade goods such as nova crystals between cities or ground bases. After docking with spaceports, they carried their cargo of crystals in an orange box. Neimoidian traders had one pilot. They were used during the Invasion of Naboo[1] in 32 BBY.[2]

It bore a resemblance similar to the Sheathipede-class transport shuttle.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Neimoidian trader appeared in the 2001 video game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds. They were the Trade Federation's Cargo Hovercraft unit, and cost 100 units of food and 50 units of carbon. The game's campaign was later included in the 2002 expansion pack. A picture of it is used to represent the "Cargo Hovercraft" unit in Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds: Prima's Official Strategy Guide.
