- "Yirt-4138-Grek-12, a 65-kilometer diameter airless rock, became the grave-site for 25 cybernetically-enhanced data thieves when Corporate Alliance tank droids leveled a clandestine compound funded by unknown parties."
- ―HoloNet News report
A team of cybernetically-enhanced slicers were operating in an industrial espionage training center on the asteroid Yirt-4138-Grek-12 in 22 BBY. They were responsible for performing cybernetic surgeries and training many espionage agents who stole data from the Corporate Alliance. When one of the base's agents, Denlace Sachoore, was arrested for stealing data from the Alliance, the base was discovered. The Alliance decided to eliminate the organization, and a raid was launched on the asteroid. Several NR-N99 Persuader-class droid enforcers proceeded to attack the center, destroying it and killing every slicer inside the facility.
- "The compound contained unauthorized cybernetic surgery suites that were churning out vessels and cyborgs that have been slicing into Corporate Alliance data-stores. This potential revenue-threat has been neutralized."
- ―Corporate Alliance Magistrate Passel Argente
During the Separatist Crisis in 22 BBY, a cyborg slicer team, funded by shadowy parties, worked in a secret compound located on a remote asteroid named Yirt-4138-Grek-12 in the Corporate Alliance–controlled Fakir sector. There, they trained and supplied espionage agents by building them vessels and performing cybernetic surgeries on them. The agents used these objects to steal valuable data from the data-stores of the Corporate Alliance. However, one of the facility's agents named Denlace Sachoore—who had received a cranium-implanted vessel drive through surgery—was caught embezzling Alliance data in the vessel drive while working as a clerk for the Alliance. The Alliance expeditors interrogated her, and approximately a month later, her espionage origins were traced to the Yirt-4138-Grek-12.
The facility now discovered, the Corporate Alliance Directorate, headed by Magistrate Passel Argente, decided to neutralize the base and the team as a threat to their revenues. Several NR-N99 Persuader-class droid enforcers were transported to the asteroid, where they attacked the base with their laser and missile weaponry. The structure's pressurization was shattered, and twenty-five cyborgs perished inside it. Their deaths were later reported in Magistrate Argente's holo-message to shareholders of the Alliance, and in an article of HoloNet News.
- "A rash of corporate thievery was discovered in the Fakir sector last month with the arrest of Denlace Sachoore, a 24-year old Corporate Alliance clerk found embezzling data in a cranium-implanted vessel drive."
- ―HoloNet News report
The team consisted individuals who had underwent a surgery which enhanced them with cybernetics, and had knowledge on slicing. Their compound on Yirt-4138-Grek-12 contained several suites that were used to produce starships and perform surgeries, as well as train agents. These unauthorized operations were illegal by the laws of the Galactic Republic, and the organization was kept hidden by its financiers. While the team showed creativity with their cybernetics, like with the vessel drive of Denlace Sachoore, her capture led to the downfall of the whole group. As they were located in the Alliance space, the raid which claimed their lives fell within legal boundaries.
Behind the scenes
The team was first mentioned in the in-universe HoloNet News Vol. 531 48 article Corporate Alliance Attacks Slicer Compound, part of the HoloNet News volume released on March 21, 2002. It was also briefly mentioned in the entry for the Corporate Alliance in The Official Star Wars Fact File 91.
