- "I want that planet in my pocket!"
- ―Tyber Zann
- "Well then, if he can use it to break in on us, we can use it to break into his communications. I think we'll give Jabba some of his own medicine and soften up Saleucami before landing - I think some sabotage is in order."
- ―Tyber Zann to Urai Fen
The battle was planned after the Cartel launched attacks on the Zann Consortium and destroyed one of the Consortium's barrack complexes. After corrupting the planet, Tyber Zann sent a Defiler to sabotage the shield generator. Afterwards, he sent Urai Fen to capture the planet.
Urai Fen was sent down along with several Grenadiers and Mercenary Assault Squads. Some of his troops were left behind to guard the landing zone for reinforcements. After destroying the Hutt Command Center, the Hutt Cartel struck back, killing the Mercenaries at the landing zone using mines. Urai expected this and made his way past the Hutt Cartel forces to capture the landing zone, killing several Hutt mercenaries to secure it. After doing so, the rest of the Zann Consortium forces dropped down and crushed the rest of the Hutt Cartel on Saleucami.
- "It seems Jabba has been digging up the past. I pulled this off of his comm net once we gained control of Saleucami. Evidently he's found an old battle droid factory on Hypori that wasn't destroyed when the Republic raided it during the Clone Wars."
- ―Urai Fen
After capturing Saleucami, Tyber discovered that Jabba Desilijic Tiure had discovered a droid factory on Hypori that had somehow survived the Clone Wars. Zann decided to capture that droid factory next.
