Actually, it was a bomb that Dooku had placed on the shuttle in order to inflict catastrophic injuries on Grievous, necessitating his transformation into a cyborg.

Which is kind of a risky plan- the bomb could have easily killed him- but whatever. It's the Star Wars EU after all.

From the Wiki link posted above:

Quote:
His vital organs were housed in a synthskin gut-sack impervious to vacuum. The Geonosians would also alter his brain against his wishes, both to trim away disturbing memories—while enhancing his rage centers—and to enhance his equilibrium, allowing him to better employ his newfound agility. Internal implants were also placed in his eyes to sharpen his vision and to protect them from the vacuum of space.

While the midi-chlorian-rich blood of Sifo-Dyas may have played a critical role in maintaining Sheelal's life, Grievous saw it as a personal failure that the transfusion did not also give him a degree of sensitivity to the Force. To San Hill and his allies, however, the experiment was a phenomenal success. Qymaen jai Sheelal had become General Grievous in form as well as spirit.

The same droids and techniques used to rebuild Grievous would later be used to apply Darth Vader's cybernetic suit.

He should freeze and die, if he has organic parts.

The average temperature of Space is 3 degrees above Absolute Zero (well there is no temperature in space really, but your body will just lose all of it's heat to the vacuum until you reach 3 degrees above Absolute Zero, by which time you' d have frozen solid).

The popular theory is you can last 30 secs to minute of space exposure before you lose too much heat and freeze to death.

(Of course Sifi series seem to defy this all the time, as do Jedi apparently if you watch the Clone Wars).

Meh, there's no scientific basis for hyperspace or turbolasers either.

He would be dead long before he froze to death. Heat does not transfer out of the body very rapidly in the absence of a medium such as air or water, so freezing to death is not an immediate risk in outer space despite the extreme cold.

What's the story behind that?
Watch the last episode of the original mini-series. Clone Wars. As Greivous kidnaps Palpatine and is about to take him to his ship, Mace Windu used force crush on Geivous' chest, slightly crushing his remaining organs.

It was also due to the fact that he was kept alive by low-grade medical technology, unlike Vader, and that the main reason Greivous was alive was by the blood of the dead jedi (butchering his name, sorry) Syfo-dias.

You were close, just swap the y and i around and the name is right.

Darn, so close.

But yeah if people need background info on the time period between Ep II and Ep III. Please watch Clone Wars the mini-series season 1 and 2, not The Clone Wars witch gives no regard to the timeline it is rewriting.

The miniseries actually led up to the begining of Ep III, literally. I doubt TCW will ever be that acurate.

I'm trying to get a better understanding of the transition of his metamorphosis.

Trying to figure out if he had a serious injury that cause him to become a cyborg or simply just wanted to improve himself for combat purposes.

Wolf didn't really read my question so I'll reword it in hopes of a better understanding
No he wasnt, He was a fully humaoid and general when Dooku heard of him and his impressive talents and decided to ''recruit'' him.

Actually Dooku planned an ''accident'' wich almost killed grievous and Dooku gave him the opportunity to keep him alive if he accepted to fight for him. He gave him a new body, with blood of an ancient Sith(rumors), wipped his memory and impletend a new one, one of pur evil and hatred.

Poor guy got $/&&/* in every holes on this one loll
