Group 2 was a squad of three Flash speeders led by Palmer. Group 2 was a diversionary force formed by the Royal Naboo Security Forces[1] in 32 BBY[2] to assist in the recapture of the planet Naboo's capital, Theed from the Trade Federation. During the battle, they became trapped in a plaza by two Armored Assault Tanks and two destroyer droids. Lieutenant Gavyn Sykess intervened to rescue the trapped Security Force officers, but not before one of Group 2's speeders was lost. Group 2 and Sykes then continued onto their objective, the Theed Courthouse, where Group 3 and a group of commandos blew open a gate blocking their way.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Group 2 appears in the 2000 video game Star Wars: Episode I: Battle for Naboo. It is difficult to fight to Group 2 in time to rescue all three, so this article assumes one speeder was lost. If all three speeders are lost, the player, in the role of Sykes, fails the mission.
