Physical description



Chronological and political information

Rise of the Empire era[1]


Borvo the Hutt[1]

"Back off! This is a legal operation."
―The mine operator to Gavyn Sykes[src]

A male mine operator was in charge of a plasma mining camp affiliated with Borvo the Hutt and the Trade Federation on the planet Naboo around the time of the invasion of the planet by the Trade Federation. The operator encountered Lieutenant Gavyn Sykes at the camp during the invasion. After the individual refused to give information and had the mine defenses fire on Sykes, Skyes destroyed the mining camp.


During the invasion of the planet Naboo by the Trade Federation in 32 BBY,[2] a male mine operator ran a mining camp owned by the smuggler Borvo the Hutt to search for plasma resources on Naboo.[1] The camp also served as a plasma shipping site for the Trade Federation.[3] During the invasion, the Trade Federation Droid Army began attacking his camp with several tanks, and a ship resembling the Hutt smuggler Borvo's personal transport left the scene during the skirmish. Lieutenant Gavyn Sykes of Bravo Flight, traveling in a speeder, was searching for his downed flight leader Captain Kael at the same time and discovered the mining operation. After destroying the droids that were attacking the camp, Sykes radioed the mine operator, demanding to know who was in charge there. The operator responded by becoming hostile, insisting that his mine was a legal operation. His words, however, did not deter Sykes' questions about Kael, and when the operator ordered his remaining defenses to fire on the Naboo pilot when Sykes refused to heed the operator's final warning, Sykes retaliated by destroying the camp.[1]

Personality and traitsEdit

"This base is programmed to defend itself. This is your last warning."
―The mine operator[src]

The mine operator became hostile when Sykes demanded to know who was in charge of his mine. He was also protective of his camp, and he ordered his turrets to fire on Sykes.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The mine operator was a minor character created for the 2000 video game Star Wars: Episode I: Battle for Naboo. His only dialogue comes from the game's cutscenes. Although Sykes destroys the camp's main building, the operator was not confirmed to be in it.
