In 22 BBY during a battle on Caliban, Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi and several members of the 212th Attack Battalion, were captured by General Grievous on the moon Caliban, located in the Outer Rim. Grievous ordered the Republic troops to rebuild a bridge that had been destroyed in the Separatist invasion of the moon, or he would kill them.
After an altercation between Kenobi and Grievous, they finally agreed to Grievous's terms. However, they came up with a plan to purposely sabotage the bridge, but these plans were discarded when they realized that one of the moon's natives, the Qubey, had been separated from the others. They then were able to cooperate with the Qubey and come up with a plan to escape.
When the bridge was completed, Grievous revealed that he was planning on leaving the prisoners on the moon. Then the Qubey attacked, which distracted Grievous and his forces, allowing the clones to steal the E-5 blaster rifles from the B1 battle droids. The Qubey then caused an avalanche, burying General Grievous and his forces. Obi-Wan and the clones then escaped from the planet using their Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry, destroying the bridge.
