After joining the Clone Wars and siding with the Confederacy, Teska was given control over a Techno Union research facility on Behpour where he could continue development on the weapon during the war. By the year 22 BBY, development on the weapon had finally finished and was ready for testing. En route for testing, the two critical features of the weapon, the Gravitic Core, were to be delivered to Behpour on a Munificent-class star frigate. During the trip however, the bounty hunter Cad Bane had infiltrated the frigate and stole one of the crates that was containing the core. To cover his tracks, Bane had the other crate explode and it caused the frigate to collapse and crash land on the Outer Rim world of Alzoc III where the cruiser was originally flying over.
