Chromium was an element used in metallic objects, and would provide a mirror shine to the surface. Originally useful in blocking radiation and certain forms of laser attacks, it was used to represent nobility on such planets as Naboo. Non-royal ships were forbidden from using chromium. The J-type 327 Nubian royal starship, J-type diplomatic barge, H-type Nubian yacht and J-type star skiff, all used by Padmé Amidala, were covered in chromium. Also, the royal N-1 starfighters, sometimes used to escort the aforementioned starships, wore partial chromium plating.
Behind the scenesEdit
The term "chromium rush" is obviously based on the real-world "gold rush." Its use helped established the background Aduba-3 as the planetary equivalent of a "ghost town," providing a "Western" setting that was appropriate for Han Solo, a gunslinging "cowboy"-like character. Its kinship to chrome and chromite is uncertain.
