"Where are you taking them?"
"To Coruscant."
"Coruscant? Uh, that doesn't compute. Uh, wait, uh, you're under arrest!"
―The OOM command battle droid and Qui-Gon Jinn[src]

In 32 BBY, a Trade Federation OOM command battle droid with masculine programming guarded the Theed Hangar during the Trade Federation's occupation of the planet Naboo. The OOM command battle droid tried to arrest Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn but was destroyed by the Jedi.

―The OOM command battle droid, to Jinn and his companions[src]

A Trade Federation OOM command battle droid was present in the Theed Hangar in the capital city of Theed[2] while the Trade Federation occupied the planet Naboo in 32 BBY to protest a trade dispute.[1] The command battle droid and subordinates were guarding a group of Naboo Security Force pilots in the hangar. The command battle droid confronted Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn when Jinn tried to escape the planet with Queen Padmé Amidala to inform the Galactic Senate about the invasion. Jinn attempted to convince the droid to let them pass and allow them to go to Coruscant, which briefly confused the droid. When the droid ordered their arrest, Jinn destroyed him with a sweep of his lightsaber. Jinn and his apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi then proceeded to destroy the command droid's subordinates, to allow the Jedi to escape on the Queen's starship.[2]

Features and functionsEdit

The OOM command battle droid had a set of black sensors along with tan plating. The droid also had masculine programming[2] and was 1.91 meters in height. Yellow markings on his torso and head marked his status as a command battle droid.[3] He contained programming which allowed him to adapt to circumstances, which sometimes malfunctioned.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

"Where are you going?"
―The battle droid, to Jinn, in an altered scene in The Phantom Menace's junior novelization[src]

The OOM command battle droid appeared in 1999 with the release of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace and its tie-ins.[2] In the junior novelization of the film, the battle droid has a blaster, which he does not have in the film, and the scene in the junior novelization includes altered dialogue.[5] The Star Wars Customizable Card Game also provided pictures and additional information about the droid.[4] The article My Star Wars by Jonathan Wilkins in Star Wars Insider 117 revealed the command battle droid was voiced by Peter Serafinowicz, the actor who dubbed the Sith Lord Darth Maul's voice. The article was reprinted in Star Wars Insider Special Edition 2012.[6]
