- "The voice is familiar…"
"The face even more so. Climber. We fought together on Deko Neimoidia."
"Good to see you again, Climber—even here."
- ―Climber and Roan Shryne
Towards the end of the war, the Republic forced the Trade Federation out of its purse worlds in the Colonies, sending the Neimoidians fleeing to the Outer Rim Territories. Deko Neimoidia, one such purse world, was invaded by the clone troopers of the 22nd Air Combat Wing, led by Jedi General Roan Shryne.
Commander Cody and Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker were part of the assault on the Trade Federation's citadel, and they were able to use the floorplans of the fortress to the Republic's advantage in their later attempt to capture Nute Gunray. The clone commandos of Ion Team also participated in the battle, and General Shryne earned the respect of Captain Climber, the team leader who later saved Shryne's life.
