The Vuutun Palaa was a Lucrehulk-class Battleship that served as part of the Trade Federation in the capacity of a droid-controlling vessel during the Invasion of Naboo, where it was at the heart of the Federation blockade.[2] It was destroyed by Anakin Skywalker during the Battle of Naboo.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Vuutun Palaa first appeared in 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.[4] Unnamed in the film, the battleship was named Vuutun Palaa in the 2012 Star Wars Legends reference book The Essential Guide to Warfare.[7] The name was brought back to canon with the release of the 2018 reference book Star Wars Encyclopedia of Starfighters and Other Vehicles.[2]

In the DVD commentary of The Phantom Menace, it was revealed the Vuutun Palaa was portrayed by a physical model, and the battle was rendered using computer graphic effects. The explosion of the central core was filmed using a smaller sphere and then imposing it onto the real sphere.[8]

On page 49 of the 2018 reference book Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary, New Edition, the Vuutun Palaa was incorrectly referred to as the Saak'ak.[9]
