this planet, noted for its unusual, bulbous plantlife, was the site of an intense battle during the final days of the Clone Wars. Saleucami, a name which surprisingly meant "oasis" in the native language, was an arid world marked by volcanic calderas formed by powerful meteor strikes. This meant that the many oases found on the planet were filled with magma, not water. Although many saw this as a problem, the natives used the available magma as a source of power. Saleucami was singled out by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, during the last stages of the Clone Wars, as one of the Outer Rim worlds that would be targetted by the Grand Army of the Republic. According to Palpatine, the worlds of Mygeeto, Felucia, and Saleucami were a "triad of evil" that served as Separatist bastions. Much of his statements were true, as Sora Bulq had established a cloning facility on the planet, where he was producing clones of the Morgukai warriors for Count Dooku and the armies of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Ostensibly, Palpatine ordered troops to Saleucami and several other worlds as a way to end the Outer Rim Sieges and bring the Clone Wars to a halt. In reality, it was just another ruse to spread the Jedi too thin to support each other. Jedi Masters Oppo Rancisis and Stass Allie led a contingent of clone troopers into the fighting, which lasted for many days before the Republic seemed to emerge victorious. However, Palpatine issued the Order Sixty-Six command to the clones, who then turned their fire on the Jedi and eliminated them.
