During the Galactic Civil War it was discovered that Demophon's sun was going to supernova. The news caused Selkren to erupt into chaos. Hordes of citizens crowded onto whatever starships they could find, deserting large parts of the city in their frenzy to escape the coming disaster. A dusk-to-dawn curfew was imposed to cut down on criminal activity during this period. The sheer number of starships entering and leaving the domed city during this period caused the air to become polluted.
During the evacuation Thadius Black used Selkren as a staging ground for his attempt to smuggle political prisoners off Demophon. He was caught and arrested by Imperial Security Bureau Captain Wallace Fisk, and was held in the local ISB Headquarters along with his associates for a time. He was eventually rescued wile the ISB was in the midst of evacuation.
