The Trade Federation was a very powerful Republic commerce guild, trade cartel, megacorporation, and lobbying group that was founded in 350 BBY as an association of business and trade groups with its own commercial trade fleet.
It grew to dominate entire star systems and all major trade routes, and possessed a formidable private military. Toward the end of the Republic, it would become increasingly dominated by the commerce-savvy Neimoidians.
On 18 ABY and after the NRC resignation and NHC formation Trade Federation was officially anounced back in business.
Return of the Trade Federation-PreparationsEdit
On 18 ABY the President of the Ruling Committee had a top-secret meeting with the C.E.O. of Hoersch-Kessel Drive. In this meeting it was agreed that the H.K.D. would provide the Neimoidians a fleet of the designs of the C.I.S. with a 45% discount for the first year and 33% for every year after. In return they would get 33% of the stocks of the soon-reformed officially Trade Federation.
It was also agreed that the H.K.D. would buy up and restore Baktoid Industrial Systems with the Neimoidians paying the 40% of the total amount of purchase in return for 40% of the stocks, as well as droids to equip their ships. This meeting is considered the beginning of the reformation of the Trade Federation.
A deal was closed later with the Jade Empire to provide the territories in Uknown Regions with trading supplies with huge things in return.
Also President Durd closed a deal of influence and partnership with a Sith Lord called Odyseous and the T.F. would be soon under the influence of a Sith Lord once again.
On 18 ABY the NRC had sealed deals with HKD, Medical Corporation Nebulon, Nubia StarDrives, and House of Santhe plus treaties with Jade Empire.
The deals with Santhe and Nebulon were secret to most though and was the first return Lucien gave them.

Trade Federation ViceroyEdit
The Trade Federation Viceroy, sometimes referred to as the Commanding Viceroy, was the leader of the Trade Federation, the chairbeing of the Trade Federation Directorate, and, if a Neimoidian, head of the Neimoidian Inner Circle in the years prior to the Invasion of Naboo. The symbol of the Viceroy around the time of the Battle of Naboo was a three-pointed tiara, but it would change over time.
Hask was the Viceroy as of 44 BBY. He was succeeded by Nute Gunray, who held the position until his demise in 19 BBY. Sentepeth Findos served as Acting Viceroy very briefly following Gunray's death, until the Federation was nationalized by the Galactic Empire shortly after the Declaration of a New Order.
During the Federation's militarization, the Viceroy acted as commander of their military.
On 18 ABY Sentepeth Gunay was appointed as Viceroy by the Trade Monarch.His duties were CEO of the company and also the Fleet Commander of the Trade Federtion.
