- "It's an old smuggler's route. The pilots used to talk about it on Tatooine."
- ―Anakin Skywalker, on the Balmorra Run
The Balmorra Run was an old smuggler's route that ran through the hazardous Kaliida Nebula, which posed dangers to travelers due to the giant space-dwelling neebray mantas that nested there. Anakin Skywalker and his Shadow Squadron took the route as a shortcut to intercept the Separatist cruiser Malevolence under the command of General Grievous before it could attack the Kaliida Shoals Medical Center during the Clone Wars.
