"Saleucami has fallen, and Master Vos has moved his troops to Boz Pity."
Obi-Wan Kenobi[3]

The Siege of Saleucami was one of the longest campaigns of the Outer Rim Sieges during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems on the planet Saleucami. Jedi General Quinlan Vos managed to defeat Separatist forces, but after he left for Boz Pity, Stass Allie was killed with the enactment of Order 66 whilst patrolling Saleucami with clone troopers.


During the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems, the sleepy planet of Saleucami in the Outer Rim Territories grew to become a major site of conflict, even being branded as one of the Triad of Evil.[6] When General Grievous sought control of the world, it began a battle between the Republic and Separatists.[12][13] When it seemed as though Saleucami could return to its peaceful status, Confederate strategists realized it could be used as a trans-shipment base for the Foundry of the Confederacy,[6] launching an invasion of Saleucami that brought widespread fighting to the planet.[1]

The siege[]

During the Outer Rim Sieges, fighting broke out between the Republic and the Separatists on Saleucami[14] when Republic Intelligence feared it was being used to hide Separatist secrets. The Confederacy's[6] campaign to defend Saleucami was one of the longest of the sieges.[14] Eventually, Jedi General Quinlan Vos and his troops were able to defeat the Separatist forces,[3] capturing the planet for the Republic.[7]


"Troops should be pulling their forces, not securing a post. The war is over."
―"Hunter," a clone deserter[15]

The 91st Recon Corps patrols the swamplands after the battle.

Once Saleucami had fallen, Vos moved his forces to Boz Pity, leaving Stass Allie[6]—who arrived on Saleucami in the aftermath of the Battle of Coruscant after being redirected from escorting reinforcements assigned to the Battle of Felucia[16]—and the 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps to mop up the remains of the droid army. However, while patrolling the world's swamplands on speeder bikes with Allie, Clone Commander Neyo received Order 66 from Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine. This caused his genetically implanted behavioral modification biochip to activate, forcing him and his wingman to open fire on Allie, killing her.[3]

Following the siege,[3] even after the war itself had finished, the clone troopers remained on Saleucami instead of pulling out, enforcing the control of the newly-established Galactic Empire. Saleucami citizens found themselves forced to register for chain codes and had their starships taken away by impound vessels. In order to get offworld on a ship, citizens needed to register for a chain code, which clone deserter Cut Lawquane—who had been warned by deserting Clone Captain CT-7567 "Rex" that Saleucami was no longer a safe place to hide—learned while trying to get offworld with his family. Nevertheless, with the help of fellow deserters Clone Force 99, the Lawquanes secured fake chain codes, allowing them to leave the planet aboard a Star Commuter 2000.[15]

Behind the scenes[]

The Siege of Saleucami was first referenced in Star Wars canon in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.[3] Within the Star Wars Legends continuity, the events surrounding the battle were expanded upon in Star Wars: Republic: Siege of Saleucami, the eighteenth story arc of Dark Horse Comics' Star Wars: Republic series.[17]

In the non-canon LEGO television series The Freemaker Adventures, the B1 battle droid R0-GR revealed he fought in the siege. Speaking with Wick Cooper, R0-GR claimed to have only gotten through the five month long battle by drinking 30-weight motor oil.[18]

Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Collapse of the Republic
  2. "Brain Invaders" establishes that the second occupation of Geonosis began after the Second Battle of Geonosis, while Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel shows that it continued throughout the rest of the Clone Wars. As Star Wars: Battles that Changed the Galaxy establishes that the Siege of Saleucami occurred after the Second Battle of Geonosis, but still during the Clone Wars, the siege must have been concurrent to the second occupation.
