Around 21 BBY, during the Clone Wars, Shahan Alama, along with Duros bounty hunter Cad Bane and the rest of Bane's posse went on a mission to the galactic capital of Coruscant to free Ziro Desilijic Tiure from prison. The mission was a success, and after escaping, Bane ordered his posse to disperse and go into hiding. Alama took his Flarestar-class attack shuttle to the planet of Florrum in the Outer Rim Territories. There, he was confronted by a small Confederate force led by a Neimoidian, and then a small Republic force under the command of Jedi Knight Aayla Secura.
Behind the scenesEdit
It is probable that Alama did not actually own this Flarestar-class ship, but rather, was borrowing it from Ohnaka. The ship bore the mark of Hondo Ohnaka's pirate gang, and it seemed apparent by the way that Alama was greeted by Ohnaka that he was not a member of the latter's pirate gang.
