- "We are to rendezvous back at the Senate building."
"What? No, no, no, no; the Outer Rim, not the Senate you stupid machine!"
- ―HELIOS-3D and Ziro the Hutt
HELIOS-3D served as a member of the Duro Bounty hunter Cad Bane's team when they went to liberate the captive Ziro from Galactic Republicimprisonment. HELIOS-3D had the role of driving a getaway Speeder once Ziro was freed, as part of a prisoner exchange deal engineered by Bane using one of the senators he had taken hostage, the representative of Ryloth, Orn Free Taa. Once Ziro was free, HELIOS-3D took him to the planned rendezvous at the Senate Building, a report that Ziro disliked, wanting to be taken away to the Outer Rim Territories instead.
Despite Ziro's disagreement, HELIOS-3D met back up with the rest of Bane's team, and with their mission complete, they all escaped.
