The Shard of Alderaan was a slicing program created by the Alderaanian slicer known only as "Never Die." It ended up in the hands of Begas Tok, who stole it from the slicer. Tok intended to auction the Shard of Alderaan off, in order to pay off his debts to Jabba the Hutt. The Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire both sent representatives to the meeting to attempt to gain control of the Shard. Never Die also sent his droid 0-1B, disguised as a medical droid, to retrieve or destroy the program.
