BEHIND THE SCENES I. THE JEDI Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace takes us back in time, to the very beginnings of the conflict depicted in the first three Star Wars films. In The Phantom Menace , the Jedi Knights have not yet withstood the attacks that would decimate their numbers. They are still a thriving and vital part of the galaxy. Jedi History And Training Founded as a philosophical study group, the ancient Jedi spent centuries contemplating the mysterious energy field called the Force. After mastering it, they chose to use their skills for good, helping those in need. For 25,000 years, the Jedi Knights served as peacemakers for the Galactic Republic. Operating out of the Judicial Department under the office of the Chancellor, the Jedi became the guardians of freedom and justice. They battled interplanetary criminals and settled cosmic disputes, becoming legendary throughout the galaxy. Utilizing the Force, Jedi Knights can perform incredible feats of strength and speed. A Jedi's keen mind can see far-off places, project illusions, move objects, and hypnotize opponents. Jedi are usually identified within the first six months of birth. At this early age, the infants begin their Jedi training. Because older children experience fear and anger, the Jedi believe it is unwise to train them in the ways of the Force. To enter Jedi training, one must be approved by the Jedi Council. The Jedi Council High above the metropolis of Galactic City on Coruscant stands the colossal pyramid known as the Jedi Temple. All matters concerning Jedi are governed by the twelve members of the Jedi Council. Except for the Jedi Knight Ki-Adi-Mundi, all members of the Council are Jedi Masters. Although Qui-Gon Jinn is a Jedi Master, he prefers active duty to a seat on the Council. To become a Jedi Master, a Jedi must have successfully trained a young apprentice, known as a Padawan. To maintain balance with the Force, the Council does not permit Jedi Masters to train more than one Padawan at a time. Jedi Transport Republic cruisers often serve as space transport for the Jedi. The Republic cruiser Radiant VII is an unarmed diplomatic vessel and is painted red to signal its diplomatic immunity. The planet Coruscant used the Radiant VII to send Jedi and ambassadors on many missions of peace throughout the galaxy. When the planet Naboo was blockaded by the Trade Federation, Supreme Chancellor Valorum dispatched the Radiant VII to the scene, hoping to avert a war....
