Clak’Dor V had originally be apart of the New Republic’s efforts to revive the homeworld of the Bith. Fast moving transports were deployed to trap as much atmosphere as possible within their holds and then transport the results to the devastated world of Clak’Dor VII. The idea was scrapped after one of the transports attempting the operation was caught within a storm. The intensity of the storm was enough to overload the shields of the transport and compromise the hull within seconds. The hydrogen already trapped within the holds of the craft exploded , igniting the gases around the transport. It was deemed too dangerous for any other transport to attempt any further pick-ups and the atmosphere idea was scrapped for another one.
Clak’Dor V is considered a very important part of Bith history. It was originally discovered long before the Bith attempted space travel, spotted by astronomers from the surface of the world. It was originally confused for a star, but later identified as a planet. The actually exploration was a disappoint to the Bith as they had believed Clak’Dor V to be the planet of a great god that watched closely over their own planet.
