The starship is equipped with advanced sensors, communications devices, and shields. The Royal Starship requires only a skeleton crew consisting of a pilot and co-pilot to opperate effectively. Intricate sensors built into the sarship report any damage instanly,allowing the crew to pinpoint trouble spots and send one of eight astromech droids to make any repairs. Because Naboo are a peaceful, the starship lacks weapons of any kind.
