A mission was undertaken on the Outer Rim planet of Mokivj during the Clone Wars. Republic Senator Padmé Amidala and Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, accompanied by Chiss Ascendancy Senior Captain Mitth'raw'nuruodo, sought to investigate and later destroy a Separatist droid factory on Mokivj. Senior Captain Thrawn aided the Republic's personnel with their goal, but his objective differed: he was in "Lesser Space" to learn about the Clone War and whether technology or nations in the galaxy may be able to aid the Chiss in their war against the Nikardun Destiny.
During the mission, the humans and Chiss discovered that the Separatists were manufacturing a cortosis-armored model of B2-series super battle droids on the planet, using cortosis sourced to the nearby cortosis mine. Padmé and Anakin resolved to prevent the Separatists from continuing to manufacture such fortified droids. Thrawn procured a deflector shield generator, which he termed a "Republic energy shield", for the Ascendancy.
The mission concluded with a catastrophe. In an effort to collapse the Separatists' cortosis mine on Mokivj, Anakin Skywalker accidentally sent lava, ash, and smoke into the planet's best cropland and water. Skywalker did not account for the cortosis in the mine redirecting the heat of the explosions. As a result, the explosive force did more than merely collapse the mine's tunnels. It was sent down the planet's crust, triggering volcanic activity and leading to widespread devastation, deforestation, and desertification on Mokivj.
