From the Expanded Universe

One of the first assignments Anakin Skywalker undertook as a Padawan apprentice to Obi-Wan Kenobi was an investigation of the mysterious planet Zonama Sekot. Three years after the Battle of Naboo, the Jedi traveled to the strange world that was rumored to be home to the fastest starships in the galaxy.

The master Sekotan shipbuilders grew their vessels organically. Their starships were not only fast, but were magnificent living beings. The Sekotans gave Anakin and Obi-Wan a beautiful specimen of their handiwork, a sleek craft that Anakin would come to name the Jabitha, in honor of the Sekotan Magister's daughter.

Fifteen living "seed partners" agreed to merge to form the Jabitha for the Jedi. The Sekotan shipbuilders then custom-engineered an elegant craft from the seed partners, rare organoform circuits and standardized technology.

The finished design was thirty meters long with a wide wingspan. The Jabitha carried two modified Haor Chall type-seven Silver-class light starship engines as well as a very expensive hyperdrive core unit. The interior was green, blue and red, gleaming with a vibrant jewel-like glow.

The controls were unmarked, but Anakin's piloting skills made such designations unnecessary. Anakin's strong Force abilities and connection to the original seed partners meant that he could communicate with the vessel telepathically.

Thus it was all the more tragic that Anakin should lose the Jabitha. Shortly after the vessel's birth, Zonama Sekot was attacked by Republic Commander Tarkin. The vessel was wounded in the skirmish, and Anakin nursed the Jabitha to the outpost world of Seline, but it was too late. The ship succumbed to its wounds.
