"Open fire!"

OOM-9 was an OOM command battle droid that led the Droid Army of the Trade Federation during the Invasion of Naboo. After Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his apprentice returned from Coruscant with Queen Amidala and gained the help of the Gungan Grand Army, OOM-9 was sent, with the Federation's battle droid army to destroy the gungans. OOM-9 was the primary contact to convey orders from Trade Federation leaders Nute Gunray and Rune Haako to the ground forces.[3] He oversaw the battle while inside his own personal Armored Assault Tank, ordering forces to overrun settlements and prevent the population from reporting the invasion by destroying communications transmitters.[3] The droids were able to create a victory for the Federation, but this was short lived, as[4] every Federation battle droid[2] was shut down when Anakin Skywalker destroyed the Droid Control Ship above Naboo.[4] The control ship's destruction affected OOM-9, as it rendered the droid commander temporarily inactive.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

While Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary, New Edition states that OOM command battle droids and other OOM-series battle droids are predecessors to the B1-series battle droid line,[6] Ultimate Star Wars and Ultimate Star Wars, New Edition state that OOM-9 is a B1.[3][7] Because both Ultimate Star Wars books and the majority of other canon sources treat OOM units as part of the B1 line,[3][7][8][9][10] this article assumes The Complete Visual Dictionary is incorrect.
