I failed to understand how such a lush planet with a huge power generator would fail too support itself in the event space trade was blockaded.
that's a whole other issue. I agree completely how can a planet with such rich vegetation as Naboo not be able to survive with out trade?
Now I could completely understand a planet like Coriscont a planet that is just one overpopulated city not being able to sustain itself. but Naboo?
It is sort of like if New York City was completely blockaded and there was nothing going in or out then it would destroy itself as people end up fighting over what little food there is.
But Naboo is more like say Iowa a place that has a relatively low population and enough open space for farming that they could easily sustain life.
