While Yoda is heading from Kamino to retrieve the clone army, Mace Windu leads a task force of around a hundred Jedi to Geonosis to rescue Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padmé.

We know that Yoda and the clones arrived in their own Star Destroyers but how did the Jedi get there?

  • The Jedi apparently 'borrowed' ships "...with an open cockpit and the right speed capabilities." ;) Commented Dec 11, 2016 at 5:34
  • @PaulOmans The question is asking about the Jedi, who arrived before Yoda & the clone army. Commented Dec 11, 2016 at 5:35
  • @PaulOmans That's unclear. The way the question is worded I can't tell if it means "Rescuers of the Jedi" or "Rescuers that are Jedi".

I do not believe this plot point is ever covered by anything outside of the movies, and I know the movies never address it, but I would assume the republic would provide for the transport of the Jedi in craft similar or identical to the craft used to transport Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi in Episode I (A Consular-class Republic Cruiser), obviously with each craft carrying more than two Jedi as the vessels are quite large.

I do not believe they would have arrived all in a fleet of Jedi starships as each traveling individually is very inefficient and since the Jedi have a reputation of being recluses (see Count Dooku's gripes on the Jedi Order) I'm not sure they would have even had that many craft and hyperspace rings available on the short-notice the Counsel received.

Remember at this point the Jedi were basically a specialized Negotiator/Peacekeeper arm of the Republic, and therefore would have had Republic resources at their disposal.
