The occupation of Naboo (32 BBY)
Sabé and Padmé Amidala during the invasion of Naboo.
"I will not cooperate."
In 32 BBY, the forces of the Trade Federation invaded Naboo as a part of their protest of the taxation of trade routes. Knowing that the Queen would be in danger, Captain Panaka initiated his scheme to ensure the safety of Amidala. Sabé, due to her close resemblance to Amidala, took on her guise, while Amidala adopted handmaiden attire and used her birth name of "Padmé Naberrie." Before the ruse could be completed, however, it was discovered that the Queen's amulet had gone missing. Sabé helped Amidala locate the object in a nearby meadow, allowing her costume to be completed.
32 BBY，贸易联邦为抗议其贸易路线税收而入侵纳布。得知女王将处于危险之中，船长Panaka开始实行他的计划，以确保阿米达拉的安全。莎蓓，因为她与阿米达拉相似的外貌，担任了女王的替身，而阿米达拉则假扮成侍女，同时恢复了她的本名“Padmé Naberrie。”在伪装之前，女王的护身符不翼而飞。莎蓓在附近的草地上找到了它，使得女王的装束得以完善无暇。
Sabé was able to fool Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray, although she did not have to keep up the ruse for long. Two Jedi Knights, Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, rescued "Amidala" and her retinue from the Federation's forces. Jinn, fearful that the Federation might harm the Queen, insisted that she journey to Coruscant to put her case before the Galactic Senate. By giving advice to her decoy in her role as handmaiden, Amidala was able to acknowledge the decision without arousing the suspicion of the Jedi, and Sabé agreed with Jinn. As they left Naboo in the Queen's unarmed starship, they sustained heavy fire from the Federation blockade that surrounded the planet. Though they were able to safely make it out of the system, the starship's hyperdrive was critically damaged. Kenobi was able to locate a nearby planet, Tatooine, where the group of fugitives would be able to purchase the repairs needed. Using Sabé as her proxy, Amidala agreed to the plan. The droid that had made the speedy but temporary repairs that had allowed the ship to escape the blockade, R2-D2, was commended by Sabé, who then "ordered" Amidala to clean him up.
Upon landing on the desert planet, Amidala herself set out for Mos Espa, a nearby city, with Jinn, the Gungan Jar Jar Binks, and R2-D2. While they were absent, Sabé received a message from Governor Sio Bibble, pleading her to contact him on Naboo. Kenobi cautioned against this, a warning Sabé heeded. At any rate, she could not act without Amidala's authority, but Sabé still found the situation she was in to be highly taxing. After several days, Amidala and Jinn were able to secure the parts, and the group set off for Coruscant.
在沙漠星球塔图因着陆后，阿米达拉跟着奎刚、JarJar还有R2-D2去Mos Espa寻找零件。他们不在的时候，莎蓓收到了Sio Bibble发来的信息，要求女王立即联系他，欧比王告诫莎蓓不要轻信，莎蓓听从了劝告。不管怎样，没有女王的指示，莎蓓不必作出任何决定，但她仍然觉得目前所处的状况非常棘手。几天后阿米达拉和奎刚一行修好了飞船，一听前往科洛桑。
Arriving at the capital, Sabé again swapped identities with Amidala, allowing the real Queen to deal with the critical political maneuvering that was sure to take place. This allowed Sabé to take a break from her stressful role, although the respite was short-lived. Amidala was unsuccessful in her mission, and she decided to return to Naboo and take matters into her own hands.
