    I don't know that he really sensed maul a ton at that moment, but regardless maul probably would have ended up killing him..... wait a minute....

    Darth Plagueis sent Maul searching for Qui Gon in order to kill him so that young Anakin wouldn't be trained by Jedi. But that's just the Plagueis book material which I highly recommend because it flows right into The Phantom don't think Maul would have killed the boy. The Sith wanted him for themselves as Count DuKoo told them of his existence during TPM period.

    Plagueis did not even know of Anakin's existence at the time...the Jedi found him first, and Maul was upon them soon after because he was after the queen. I am quite sure the move, TPM, is right that Maul was after the queen, not the boy on Tatooine.

    They should never have deleted the scene where Qui-Gon slices the probe droid. It made the following scene where he and Anakin are running to the ship make more sense. And although the novel makes the point, I never really got from the movie that Qui-Gon sensed anything was wrong until he realized that the probe droid was following them. And on that note, how stupid does a probe droid have to be to follow someone eight feet behind them? :p

    Have you read the Darth Plagueis book?

    Plagueis discovers Anakin's existence when Qui-Gon arrives with him on Coruscant.

    It is right after Qui-Gon leaves for Naboo with Anakin, Obi-Wan, and the Queen, that we see Plagueis thinking "Maul has to kill Qui-Gon, to keep the boy from being trained."

    Whether or not Maul is actually given that order, we're not shown.
