Laren Omas supported and oversaw several Republic weapons research projects. Omas oversaw the creation of the super dreadnaught the Star of Coruscant and the Shadow Arsenal. The officer had previously worked with many of the scientists Omas asked to join the team, who were initially skeptical to the purpose of the group. The Colonel wanted to develop a weapon to beat back the Imperial threat.
Omas died on Hoth. The Star of Coruscant was deorbited and fell to the surface of the ice world, becoming a target for looters. The science team behind the Shadow Arsenal went their respective ways, apart from doctor Nasan Godera, the team leader. Godera worked in secret to complete the Arsenal on Quesh.
