Impressed by the acolyte's accomplishments, Zash takes the former slave as her apprentice, though the apprentice is quickly caught up in the rivalry between Zash and her superior, Darth Skotia. Around the same time, a new acolyte is placed under the tutelage of Overseer Tremel , who seeks to use his new student to destroy the acolyte Vemrin —a potential apprentice to the Sith Lord Darth Baras.

Tremel's student completes each of the tests set by the overseer, but Baras confronts the acolyte and reveals that Tremel is rushing the student's instruction to achieve his own goals. At Baras's instruction, the acolyte turns on Tremel and slays him, earning Baras's favor and becoming a possibility for a new apprentice. The acolyte's final test is to retrieve an ancient lightsaber from the tomb of the Sith Lord Naga Sadow , and after using the Twi'lek treasure hunter and slave Vette to navigate the tomb, the student defeats Vemrin and secures a place as Baras's apprentice.

The industrial planet Nal Hutta , adopted homeworld of the Hutt species , is rife with crime and conflict between rival members of the Hutt Cartel , including Voontara Fa'athra and Suudaa Nem'ro. The native Evocii species, who have long been disenfranchised by their Hutt rulers, struggle alongside Human and alien workers as they toil in the toxic swamps and industrial facilities that crowd the planet's surface, though some mercenaries , criminals, and radical Evocii wage guerrilla wars against the Hutts and anyone else they encounter.

As the Great Hunt , a major Mandalorian bounty hunting competition, draws near, the veteran hunter Braden mentors a young hunter and seeks to secure sponsorship from Nem'ro the Hutt in order for his protege to enter the competition. With the help of Braden, a young slicer named Mako , and Braden's associate Jory , the hunter tracks down and kills the criminal Vexx —but returns to find Braden and Jory murdered by a rival hunter named Tarro Blood. Despite their deaths, the hunter and Mako continue their efforts to secure sponsorship, completing a number of bounties for Nem'ro.

However, Nem'ro double-crosses the hunter, giving his sponsorship to a Trandoshan named Rarsk and challenging the hunter to go and take the sponsorship from Rarsk. Nem'ro is greatly pleased by the hunter's success in doing so, and agrees to officially sponsor the hunter in the Great Hunt, which will begin on the Imperial capital of Dromund Kaas. Also in Nem'ro's industrial town of Jiguuna , an operative of the Sith Empire's Imperial Intelligence is tasked with securing an alliance between the Empire and Nem'ro, who a powerful member of the Hutt Cartel.

Adopting the identity of the notorious pirate known as the Red Blade , the agent attempts to earn the trust of Karrels Javis , one of Nem'ro's lieutenants, and completes a number of sabotage missions against the operations of Nem'ro's rival Fa'athra. However, the agent is forced to find a new ally when Javis's sons are involved in an incident with a Sith that leaves one son dead and the other crippled, and Javis is eliminated as a loose end.

The Rattataki mercenary Kaliyo Djannis becomes suspicious of "the Red Blade," but allies herself with the agent nonetheless upon discovering the operative's true allegiance, and aids the agent in manufacturing evidence that Fa'athra is colluding with the Republic. Nem'ro is successfully persuaded into allying with the Empire, and though the real Red Blade arrives on Hutta shortly before the agent departs, the operative kills the pirate to secure the operation, and is recalled to Dromund Kaas with Djannis. Grand Moff Rycus Kilran is eager to restart the war, and his efforts to recapture a defecting Imperial general is a success despite the loss of a number of ships to Republic forces under Grand Master Satele Shan.

Kilran's efforts to capture the Republic ambassador Vyn Asara by attacking the transport Esseles fails, [18] however, forcing Imperial spokespeople to deny the Empire's involvement in an effort to distance themselves from the incident. The xenophobic Advozse Hegemony acquires the powerful battle station known as Hammer Station and attempts to expand their territory, but the galactic powers dispatch forces to destroy the station. A similar conflict arises when the Mandalorian Clan Varad begins terrorizing the Outer Rim with the stolen Republic warship Allusis ; both governments send strike teams to destroy Clan Varad and take control of the Allusis.

The Republic capital of Coruscant is still recovering from the Sacking a decade prior, and though Supreme Chancellor Dorian Janarus and Senator Vanara Kayl have led efforts to rebuild Galactic City , gangs such as the Migrant Merchants' Guild and Black Sun control entire sectors of the capital, and the Coruscant Security Force receives no help from the Imperial-backed vigilante group known as the Justicars' Brigade.

Unbeknownst to the Republic, the Empire has more than just monetary influence on the capital: Imperial forces are searching the ruins of the Jedi Temple for artifacts and knowledge left behind in the building's destruction. Yuon Par's apprentice, now a full-fledged Jedi Consular, comes to Coruscant in search of the Noetikons , ancient Jedi artifacts that could prove vital in healing Par of the mysterious illness that struck her on Tython.

Fighting through various elements of Coruscant's underworld to retrieve the three devices across Coruscant, the Consular consults the Noetikons and learns of a shielding technique that successfully heals Par of her illness. However, the threat does not end there: it soon becomes apparent that the "Dark Plague" that had afflicted Par has also infected several Jedi Masters across the galaxy. There, the loyal trooper is given command of the unit as a lieutenant, Havoc Squad is reformed with the trooper and Jorgan as its first members, and Garza tasks the squad with hunting down the traitors amid an inquiry by the Galactic Senate into the recent mass defections in SpecForce.

Following leads on the traitors' allies across Coruscant, Havoc Squad finally locates and defeats Jek Kardan , one of the founders of Havoc Squad and Tavus's mentor, but is then sent to rescue Senator Zorin Krasul when he is kidnapped by the Havoc traitor Wraith. Havoc Squad manages to rescue Krasul from the space station Port Raga , though the unit fails to capture Wraith. The smuggler whose ship Skavak stole on Ord Mantell pursues the "Jackal of the Stars" to Coruscant with Corso Riggs, who sets up a meeting with the gambler and information broker Darmas Pollaran in hopes of locating Skavak.

With Pollaran's help, the smuggler and Riggs chase down leads on Skavak's location in various districts of the galactic capital, tangling with the Migrant Merchants' Guild and Black Sun in the process. After pursuing a lead in Justicar territory, the duo learn of a meeting between Skavak and Imperials in the Works region; the pair crash the meeting, but Skavak escapes in the confusion. However, Skavak lets slip the location of the smuggler's ship, and the captain beats Skavak back to the freighter—only to find a mysterious woman named Risha waiting in the hold.

Orgus Din and his student, now a Jedi Knight, are called to Coruscant to aid in the search for a mysterious darkness that the Jedi have sensed on the capital. However, the young Knight soon becomes involved in the efforts to retrieve the stolen Planet Prison superweapon as well as its creator, Doctor Eli Tarnis , from various gangs across the city.

To the Republic's surprise, it soon becomes apparent that Tarnis is actually a Sith Lord who has infiltrated the Republic's superweapon development program , and the Knight joins forces with Padawan Kira Carsen in a race against time to prevent Tarnis from using the Planet Prison against Coruscant—but the Knight's success comes with a cost: Tarnis's father Darth Angral declares a personal war on the Republic in response to his son's death at the Jedi's hand. Taking on Carsen as a Padawan, the Knight is sent to Ord Mantell to investigate an Imperial listening post , where T7-O1 and the Jedi recover information on something called the " Desolator " that Angral is building.

In contrast to Coruscant, the Imperial capital of Dromund Kaas remains largely under the firm rule of the Empire, though a number of growing threats have begun to undermine Imperial authority.

"Time and Again"

The secretive Order of Revan seeks to spread their philosophies throughout the Empire despite the Dark Council's dedication to eradicating the group, and the Sith Lord Qet 's effort to construct a monument to his master Darth Vowrawn went awry when the slave workers launched a rebellion. The Sith Lord Grathan has recently declared himself the thirteenth Dark Council member, and has fortified his estate with a veritable army. The wild animals that inhabit Dromund Kaas's dark jungles still pose threats outside of the walls of Imperial cities such as the capital of Kaas City , and the Dark Temple —a Sith structure that was used to contain powerful artifacts and the bodies of the Emperor's enemies before it was sealed hundreds of years earlier—has been breached by a group of arrogant Sith Lords who quickly met their death inside; the power of the dark side has unleashed madness and unspeakable horrors from within the forbidden structure, and the Empire is struggling to contain the Temple's influence.

On Dromund Kaas, Braden's protege arrives along with a half dozen other hunters to learn that there is one spot left in the Great Hunt. Assigned a handler named Crysta Markon , the hunter is tasked with hunting down three targets on the Imperial capital in order to qualify for the Grand Melee that will decide who enters the Hunt. Tarro Blood, who has already secured a place in the Hunt, repeatedly attempts to sabotage his rival, but despite the interference the hunter successfully completes the three contracts: a Republic noble named Altaca , Grathan's apprentice Vereta Fraabaal , and the commander of an Imperial team sent into the Dark Temple.

The hunter emerges victorious in the Grand Melee, securing the last spot in the Grand Hunt, and successfully steals a D5- Mantis Patrol Craft to use as the hunter's own ship as part of a Great Hunt tradition. Assigned a handler in Watcher Two , the agent and Djannis are tasked with rooting out a terrorist cell that is supposedly planning an attack on Dromund Kaas, and interrogation of rebel slaves points to a scientist named Theovor Mindak who is in the service of Lord Grathan.

With the help of Mindak's daughter Samara , the operative infiltrates Grathan's estate and learns from Mindak that the terrorists plan to detonate the power conduits beneath the Dark Temple—a detonation that would severely damage Kaas City. The operative successfully stops the terrorists, but the terrorists strike a blow against the Empire nonetheless: Darth Jadus and thousands of people are killed when Jadus's flagship is destroyed by terrorists led by the mysterious " Eagle.

The planet Taris was destroyed three hundred years earlier by the Sith Lord Darth Malak , and the once great city-world was turned to ruins that have been overgrown by Taris's recovering ecosystem in the last few centuries. In the absence of settlers, Taris's environment has recovered from years of industrial pollution, though some of the planet's wildlife has been affected by the pollution and radiation.

The Republic has recently begun a resettlement initiative under the Taris Reconstruction Authority and Governor Leontyne Saresh , though pirates, scavengers, corruption, rakghouls , and a number of other setbacks have impeded progress. The Republic Military maintains outposts in the wilderness, though it is unsafe for colonists to travel outside of the Republic Resettlement Zone , and the initiative's headquarters at Olaris is frequently besieged by rakghouls. In the far reaches of the world, Republic scientists also make a disturbing discovery—a new species of rakghoul called the nekghoul has evolved, one that is Force-sensitive and intelligent.

The Jedi Knight and company are sent to Taris to locate Doctor Nasan Godera , a brilliant Republic scientist who quit the Republic in disgust after the Sacking of Coruscant; however, Imperial Intelligence is already one step ahead of the Knight, forcing the Jedi to pursue Intelligence's Watcher One across Taris in a race to locate and then rescue Godera from the Empire.

The Knight succeeds, but not before Watcher One is able to extract valuable information from the scientist on the subject of superweapons. The first of the infected Masters is the Kaleesh Cin Tykan , who had been assisting the Republic in the exploration and resettlement of Taris with his Padawan Aris Vauranelle before he was overcome by the plague's madness. Tracking down Tykan, the Consular rescued Tykan's expedition from the death-trap he had led them into, and discovered that Tykan intended to destroy Taris's ruined reactors and infrastructure in order to wipe out the resettlement project.

The Consular foiled Tykan's efforts, however, ending the Jedi Master's madness. The planet Balmorra is suffering under an Imperial occupation that has lasted for almost three decades, and much of the world's infrastructure and surface is heavily damaged from the years of warfare. The Imperials are fighting an ineffective battle against the Balmorran resistance , though the rebels lack the strength to drive the Empire off their homeworld themselves.

However, the Republic Military and the Jedi Order have begun secretly lending their support to the resistance, and despite the Balmorrans' resentment of the Republic's abandonment of their planet at the end of the Great War, they have begun to make progress—but the arrival of Darth Lachris , the new Sith governor, begins an increased crackdown on the resistance. Lachris's forces uncover and foil a Republic invasion attempt, forcing the Republic to declare that the Jedi and Republic Military forces who participated to be rogue agents.

Balmorra is also the site of one of the Great Hunt targets—each competitor in the Great Hunt is assigned a target that they must eliminate or capture, but they must also compete against another hunter who is given the same target. Mako and the hunter's first target is Admiral Ivernus , who is stationed at Balmorra but never leaves his flagship , so the pair offer their services to Lieutenant Major Pirrell , a subordinate of the admiral, in hopes of getting close to their target. Pirrell uses the bounty hunter to sabotage various Imperial operations on the war-torn world in order to discredit his incompetent superior Colonel Sartius , and his plan successfully brings the admiral to the capital of Sobrik.

Pirrell's Cathar companion Murghir reveals herself as the hunter's competition and tries to take down Ivernus, but the hunter kills both Ivernus and Murghir in the firefight and advances in the Great Hunt. As the first step in tracking down the culprits responsible for the Dominator ' s destruction, Cipher Nine is sent to Balmorra and tasked with infiltrating a cell of terrorists led by the mysterious Gray Star.

With the help of Sanju Pyne, Cipher Nine performs several missions for the resistance in order to win the trust of Gray Star's lieutenant Chemish Or ; however, Or becomes suspicious of Pyne and kills him. Cipher Nine's cover remains intact, and Or sends the operative to extract Gray Star from the Balmorran Arms Factory—where the operative learns that Gray Star is a soldier in the Republic Army, and successfully eliminates the resistance leader. The moon of Nar Shaddaa is a hotbed of covert activity, as the Hutts' neutrality forces both the Empire and the Republic to coexist in a relatively peaceful fashion there.

In the shadows, however, the Republic Strategic Information Service SIS and Imperial Intelligence are locked in a battle for supremacy, and the Empire maintains secret facilities such as the prison district of Shadow Town. Gangs such as the Kintan Kings battle the Exchange , the Hutt Cartel, and other criminal organizations for control of Nar Shaddaa, and the Empire's rule over parts of the moon is challenged by many of the immigrants and war refugees who inhabit areas such as the Corellian and Duros Sectors. General Suthra dispatches the Jedi Knight to Nar Shaddaa to secure the Power Guard Project , an experimental supersoldier program run in secret by the Republic on the moon, and the Knight works with the local Strategic Information Service agents to track down the SIS agent Galen , who went missing while searching for the program.

However, the Knight soon discovers that Angral's apprentice Sadic has taken control of the program, leading the Knight to pursue Sadic and the Power Guard program across the moon. Sadic destroys the SIS base with Power Guards, but the Knight nonetheless tracks him back to the prison district of Shadow Town, where Sadic—who has undergone the Power Guard process himself out of a desire for power—is killed by the Jedi. Nar Shaddaa is also the location of the Jedi Master Duras Fain , who is suspected of being infected with the Dark Plague and responsible for the fanatical criminal cult known as the Guiding Hand that has recently come to power on Nar Shaddaa.

Thanks to Cedrax's inventions , the Consular resists Fain's mind control attempt and defeats the crazed Jedi Master before freeing him from the effects of the plague—and the cured Fain reveals that the infected Masters were part of an ill-fated expedition to the planet Malachor III in their youth. The hunter's next target is on Nar Shadda: the Eidolon , a notorious assassin who heads the Republic-allied Eidolon Security company. With the help of a Hutt Cartel lieutenant named Gele'ren and Mako's childhood friend Anuli , the hunter attacks the Eidolon's corporate holdings in an attempt to draw the target out.

The hunter's competition, a clan of Ugnaughts , are easily dispatched, but the Eidolon kills Anuli and leaves assassin droids to kill the hunter. To the Eidolon's surprise, Mako and the hunter survive and pursue him to a safe house , where they successfully take down their target. Valis seeks to recapture Carsen, herself a former Child who escaped the Empire, though Valis is defeated by the two Jedi. After fighting off an Imperial ambush during which Fain had been injured, the Carida had been visited by a mysterious Jedi Master who "healed" the injured Jedi and departed—after which Fain started attacking everyone.

The Consular ultimately heals Fain of the plague's influence, and learned that the "Jedi Master" responsible for the plague is actually a Jedi-turned-Sith named Vivicar who can only infect those he has personal contact with. After taking down the Eidolon, the hunter and Mako are surprised to be recalled to Dromund Kaas by Huntmaster Assistant Lek , who sends the pair on a discreet assignment to locate and eliminate a slicer who stole the Great Hunt target list and is auctioning it on Nal Hutta.

Before his death, the slicer reveals he was hired by a Mandalorian, and the hunter suspects Tarro Blood, whose targets were excluded from the stolen list. The desert world of Tatooine is another world where the Empire and the Republic work behind the scenes to gain an advantage over each other, with the Republic supporting the civilian inhabitants of Anchorhead and other settlements, while the Empire has established a garrison in the town of Mos Ila.

The Imperial Reclamation Service scours the desert for artifacts, and the Republic Military and the Imperial Military are forced to engage pirates, the native Sand People , mercenaries, various alien species, and Tatooine's hostile wildlife. The Czerka Corporation uncovers a powerful artifact of the Rakata species in the Dune Sea , sparking a race between the two galactic powers to take control of the artifact or to destroy it before its influence spreads.

A similar situation arises when a Republic survey team accidentally awakens the servants of the mad Sith Lord Vodal Kressh on Athiss , though either the Republic or the Empire is able to destroy Kressh's servants and end the threat his power poses to the galaxy. Sent to Tatooine, the hunter is tasked with tracking down the notorious Devaronian conman Tyresius Lokai , but an attempt to capture Lokai—who is posing as "Gellar Roing"—in the Mos Ila Spaceport sees Lokai escape. Learning that the other competitor targeting Lokai, Veeboo Lunx , was bribed by Lokai to drop out of the Hunt after shooting down the conman's ship, the hunter tracks down and eliminates Lunx before pursuing Lokai across the desert.

Lokai is unable to repair his damaged ship before the hunter arrives, but after a firefight, Lokai offers his services to the hunter and uses a genetically identical body double as proof of Lokai's death. Changing his name to Gault Rennow, the Devaronian joins the hunter's crew. The honorable Sith challenges the Jedi to a duel for the Shock Drum control codes, as he finds Angral's command to activate the seismic superweapon to be dishonorable. After the Jedi emerges victorious, the Knight rushes to save Carsen's former Jedi Master Bela Kiwiiks , who Angral ordered Praven to leave for dead with the Shock Drum; fighting through the fearsome creatures known as sand demons , the Knight manages to rescue Kiwiiks and disarm the Shock Drum before it destabilizes the planet's core.

The Consular encounters a group of Jawas whom Vossan had visited, only to find that the Jedi had convinced them to try and take control of the desert with war droids. The Consular soon discovers that Vossan, in his madness, believes Tatooine's Sand People to be "the ultimate warriors," and that Vossan has gone in search of a particularly warlike tribe.

The Consular finds Vossan deep in the desert with the Sand People, and after healing the Master, learns more about the expedition to Malachor. The Padawans who went to Malachor had been overcome by something evil they discovered, and in their haste to escape, one of the Padawans, Parkanas Tark, was left behind by his fellows. The death of the Panteers led to a crisis of succession that gave way to a three-way civil war as the formerly exiled House Thul returned with Imperial backing and General Bouris Ulgo declared himself king before wiping out the Panteers.

Houses Thul and Ulgo are opposed by the Republic-allied House Organa , and they all vie for supremacy as the minor houses ally themselves with the various factions. To make matters worse, amid the political conflict, hives of the insectoid Killik species have awoken across Alderaan and are wreaking havoc.

On Alderaan, the Jedi Consular searches for Master Sidonie Garen , who was tasked with arranging a peace conference between the houses before she became infected with the Dark Plague. Upon discovering that Alderaanian law barred the Consular from attending, the Jedi allied with the lesser House Teral and became their advocate in order to attend the conference, aiding them against House Rist and securing an alliance with House Organa.

At the conference, Garen's madness led her to try and sabotage the proceedings to incite war, but the Consular was able to restore order and end Garen's plans. The Knight arrives on Alderaan in search of the Jedi's former Master Orgus Din, who had also vanished while securing the Death Mark laser —an orbital satellite meant to end the civil war by strategic assassination. With the help of a Republic scientist named Aleyna Hark , the Knight is able to locate Din and rescue him from the remains of the Death Mark research facility, only to find that Hark is a spy in the service of Angral's apprentice Nefarid —and Hark is marking targets for Nefarid to kill with the Death Mark.

After preventing Hark from killing Duke Horis Thul , the Knight tracks down and defeats Nefarid, but at the same time, Master Din is killed during an attempt to infiltrate Darth Angral's ship. The hunter seeks out Corwin's last known location—the noble family House Girard —and is recruited by Corwin's cousin, Baron Zacar Girard , to act as Girard's advocate in exchange for aid in the search.

Tracking down the duke by tracing coded messages left in museum relics, the hunter pursues Corwin to House Rist but arrives only to find that Corwin had already escaped to House Organa's protection. The hunter continues the pursuit nonetheless, but finds that the Duke is in fact dead and is being impersonated by his sister Muriel for the sake of a treaty. The hunter turns in the duke's corpse, successfully earning a place in the final round of the Great Hunt. Governor Chornarov's corruption attracts the attention of the Republic, which begins an investigation into his actions; however, when the Republic is prepared to arrest him, the governor makes his move.

Broadcasting live on the Holonet, Chornarov declares Cademimu's independence from the Republic, and his Cademiman Guard —many of whom are former members of the Mantellian Separatist Movement—institute martial law on the planet. Cademimu is incredibly valuable to the Republic war effort, as it is the site of missile depots that supply Republic forces along the entire Celanon Spur trade route.

Chornarov's actions draw the attention of both the Republic and the Empire, and both groups dispatch strike teams to the planet in order to take back control of the planet's missile depots and thereby allow a naval fleet to enter the system. Chornarov's subordinate General Ortol , the leader of the Guard, is killed during the fighting, and the planet falls to one of the galactic powers. As the galaxy approaches war, the Republic forms a new squadron known as the Coruscant Aegis that sees service during both the Cold War and the Galactic War.

The Coruscant Aegis rescues a Republic transport in the Fondor system , defends the personnel of a SIS listening post in the Syvris system when they are forced to evacuate, and destroys an Imperial space station in the Llanic system that was developing a poison known as Ziroxin When an Imperial staging point is discovered in the Balosar system , the Republic sends the Coruscant Aegis to destroy the space station, and they also defeat the Empire's Razor Shyracks squadron and their leader, the Sith Lord Kestas Rone , over the planet Javaal.

In the Archenar system , the Aegis eliminates a group of Imperial fighters that has been preying on Republic supply transports in Hutt Space, and also spearhead an assault on the damaged warship Overlord over Makem Te when its commander, Moff Jocend is forced to retreat there after a failed attack on Republic borders. Just before open war, the squadron defends a neutral space station from Imperial attack in the Pakuuni system , foiling the Empire's efforts to blame the Republic. In the ice rings of Kovor , the Aegis defeats an Imperial force led by the pilot Tervor Jheran when Jheran attacked a Republic squadron and attempted to frame them for breaking the Treaty.

The squadron also destroys the Rancor's Claw squadron in a dogfight amid the asteroids of the Drexel system during the final days of the Cold War. Around the same time, the Empire forms the elite Empire's Fury squadron, which sees action across the galaxy. One of the squadron's first missions is the destruction of a Republic listening post in Hutt Space, and the Empire's Fury also emerges victorious when they engage the Republic's Solar Thrantas squadron and its Jedi leader, Nezhel "Sunsport" Othren , over the planet Saleucami.

When a Republic fighter wing is sighted over the Imperial agriworld Nez Peron , the Empire's Fury is deployed to wipe out the starfighters for entering Imperial space, and the squadron also leads the assault on the Republic warship Enkindle over Sarapin Four after the Enkindle is damaged in a confrontation with the Imperial dreadnought Tears of Taris. The Empire's Fury squadron sees action against the Republic-sympathizing Ezran pirates in the Ezran system when the Empire learns that the pirates are sheltering Republic operatives, prompting the Empire's Fury to wipe out the pirates.

When Major Boro Fareed agrees to defect to the Empire, the Empire's Fury is sent to rescue his shuttle from Republic forces in the Taspan system and escorts the defector to safety. When Republic forces attack an Imperial manufacturing station in the Skaross system in violation of the ceasefire, the Empire's Fury wipes out the bombers and saves the station from the rogue Republic attackers. The Empire's Fury wipes out Republic-sponsored pirates who are setting up a minefield in the Polith system , destroys the elite Sullustan bomber squadron known as the Ash Angels when they go rogue and attack Imperial forces in the Outer Rim, and wipe out a Republic border patrol that the Empire lures away from Republic space into the ice rings of the planet Mugaar.

The Republic does not have to wait long for Darth Angral's next move—using a tracking device planted by Din before his death, the Republic locates Angral's warship in the Uphrades system , but when the Knight arrives there, the fertile agriworld Uphrades has been utterly devastated by some kind of combination of the stolen superweapons. The Knight and company rescue the stricken medical frigate Daybreaker from an Imperial attack and learn from the survivors that Angral has combined the stolen superweapons into a single ship-mounted weapon: the Desolator. Having tested the Desolator on Uphrades, Angral sets his sights on Tython itself, and the Knight's crew arrives in the Tython system as the Desolator recharges for an attack.

Slipping aboard the Oppressor , the Knight and Carsen disable the Desolator's reactors before facing Angral himself on the ship's bridge. However, the Emperor seizes control of Carsen briefly and orders Angral to kill the Knight. Angral falls in battle to the Knight and Carsen, but the Emperor fully possesses Carsen and attacks the Knight with Angral's fallen weapon.

As the Oppressor begins to disintegrate under Jedi bombing runs, the Knight helps Carsen purge herself of the Emperor's influence, and the two escape the doomed warship. In the aftermath of the battle , Carsen is elevated to the rank of Jedi Knight, and Din's former student is named "the Hero of Tython. Studying what they know about Vivicar, the Council determines that Vivicar is likely Parkanas Tark himself, out for revenge against those who left him on Malachor—and Yuon Par something more: Malachor III was the resting place of Terrak Morrhage , the original creator of the dark plague.

Using the connection forged by the plague between herself and Tark, Par attempts to track Vivicar's location, and she is successful despite a brief possession by Vivicar. The Consular travels to Vivicar's location, a ship drifting in deep space filled with brainwashed Republic soldiers, and confronts the Sith Lord. However, Tark is revealed to be nothing more than a vessel for the spirit of Terrak Morrhage, which had been awoken by the Padawans on their expedition, and despite his being defeated in a duel with the Consular, Morrhage reveals that he is infecting hundreds more Jedi Masters with each passing moment.

Should Vivicar die, the infected would die as well, so the Consular instead uses the shielding technique on Vivicar, freeing Tark and forcing a weakened Morrhage to vanish while also freeing the infected. In the aftermath, Tark goes into self-imposed exile on Tython, and the Consular is granted the rank of Jedi Master and the title of Barsen'thor , or Warden of the Order. With the Corwin bounty finished, the hunter is contacted by former Grand Champion Hedarr Soongh , who warns the hunter that Tarro Blood's allies are gathering on Nar Shaddaa to plan an attack.

Heeding the advice, the hunter disrupts Blood's allies' plans, but Soongh is killed in the chaos. Blood has already been captured, and has warned the Aurora of his competitor's impending arrival. Despite the forewarning, the hunter is able to board the Aurora and locate Jarro, killing Blood on the way. In the aftermath of recent events—particularly the open war that Darth Angral waged against the Republic—the Treaty of Coruscant has begun to disintegrate, and the Sith Empire launches an invasion of Taris , seeking to destroy the work done by the Republic's recent reconstruction efforts.

Darth Gravus and his forces establish a garrison in the Brell Sediment and steadily drives the Republic back towards their initial settlement of Olaris, demoralizing the fierce Cathar settlers and destroying many of the facilities and colonies established by the Republic. As the invasion continues, Olaris itself is invaded, and the Republic is forced into a mass evacuation of their colonists. Similarly, the Republic sends their forces to support the Balmorran resistance in driving the Empire off of Balmorra.

Despite the resistance's resentment of the Republic for abandoning them at the end of the last war, they work with the Republic Military in retaking much of the planet, and the Balmorran Arms Factory itself is recaptured amid significant Imperial losses on other fronts. The new Grand Champion is soon summoned to a meeting with by Mandalore the Vindicated himself, where the hunter is introduced to the past Grand Champions and sent on a mission for Mandalore : hunting down the Sithspawn Akure on Dromund Kaas.

While doing so, the hunter encounters a young Mandalorian named Torian Cadera. The Grand Champion is inducted into the Mandalorians by Mandalore, and given access to the exclusive Blacklist of bounties. Amid the growing unrest, the Jedi Master Oteg is visited by a mysterious Force ghost who informs him of a powerful Jedi held prisoner by the Emperor in the Maelstrom nebula. To navigate the notoriously dangerous nebula, a computer built by the Gree species is required; Oteg therefore gathers a team of powerful Republic operatives to retrieve the computer from the Imperial outpost on the planet Taral V.

Oteg then leads the First Expeditionary Fleet in an assault on the Imperial Fifth Fleet that is guarding the Maelstrom Prison while his operatives board the station and fight their way to the prisoner, killing Grand Moff Rycus Kilran in the process. The prisoner is in fact the Jedi Master Revan, kept alive for the last three centuries by the Emperor, and after he is freed, Revan decides to bring the war to an end by eliminating the Sith Empire permanently.

To that end, he takes control of the long-lost Rakatan space station known as the Foundry , which he puts to use in manufacturing an army of extermination droids to wipe out the Empire. Revan's freedom incites the Emperor to war, as Revan had been manipulating the Sith ruler through their mental bond and making the Emperor delay his plans for galactic annihilation. Learning of Revan's intentions, Darth Malgus gathers an Imperial strike team that captures the Republic ship Dorin's Sky , which is then used to bypass the Republic blockade around the Foundry.

Malgus's operatives proceed to board the Foundry and fight through the Republic forces and Foundry droids aboard the station, and Revan is defeated in a final battle after which he disappears in a flash of light. During the invasion of Taris, the Grand Champion pursues the first bounty from the Blacklist: Jicoln Cadera , an exiled Mandalorian rival of Mandalore and an initiation of sorts—not one of the two dozen hunters who have tried to capture Cadera in the decade he's been on Taris have succeeded, and not all returned alive.

The hunter soon discovers that someone else is hunting Cadera—his son Torian, who seeks to kill his father and restore his clan's honor. With Torian's help, the hunter pursues Cadera across Taris, and though Torian is injured in a confrontation with Jicoln, he succeeds in injuring his father in return. Tracking Cadera, the Grand Champion corners him in one of his scattered camps and takes him down, earning Torian's respect and leading the young man to join the hunter's crew. On the adrenal-producing world of Quesh , Moff Dracen seeks to force the Republic to break the Treaty outright and officially launch the growing Galactic War.

As a result, his forces sabotage Republic adrenal operations on the planet, a campaign that ends with the death of two of the three members of the Three Families —the Hutts working with the Republic to produce adrenals on Quesh. General Korvan leads the Republic Military in combating the Empire on Quesh as the war begins, and his forces successfully infiltrate Broga's Palace and capture Dracen—but Korvan is betrayed by his subordinate and Broga is captured by the Empire.

Broga is rescued, but the two galactic powers continue to struggle for control of the valuable planet. The Grand Champion receives a job offer from AdasCorp to be their corporate spokesperson, but a meeting on Quesh turns out to be something completely different—a trap set by the SIS and the Jedi that the hunter barely escapes.

Another battlefront where the Empire prepares for full-fledged war is the ice world of Hoth , which was the site of a major fleet battle in the last war and is now littered with the valuable wreckage of dozens of prototype vessels. Hoth becomes the site of a three-way battle between the Republic, the Empire, and the White Maw pirate group, as the Republic struggles to drive back the powerful White Maw and the Empire seeks to bog down the Republic war effort here.

The Empire hopes to force the Republic to devote more and more of their resources to Hoth, thus weakening the Republic for the Empire's coming offensive. Despite the Quesh incident, the hunter's crew nonetheless pursues another target from the Blacklist—the Trandoshan pirate Reneget Vause on the planet Hoth. With the help of a Jawa scavenger named Blizz , the hunter tracks down Vause, but the pirate sees the Grand Champion as unworthy to fight him and leaves.

Blizz helps the hunter find and eliminate a number of Vause's rivals in the White Maw organization in order to prove the Champion's worthiness, and after taking down Vause's friend Ki-Ta Kren to draw him out, the hunter successfully defeats Vause. As the group departs Hoth, Blizz joins the hunter's crew. As war breaks out, the Coruscant Aegis defends a space station in the Kalee system whose personnel want to defect, and they also destroy the Sith Lord Javis Koldor 's flagship Scream of Ragnos over the Unknown Regions world of Zosha.

When Mandalorians attempt to blockade the Hydian Way as they did in the Great Galactic War, the Coruscant Aegis is sent to smash the blockade and reopen the route. The squadron also sees action against Mandalorians in the Unknown Regions' Impossible Sector , where they destroy another Mandalorian attempt at a blockade and restore the flow of goods to the Republic through the sector.

In the early days of the renewed war, the Empire's Fury is called into service at Aeten II in the Unknown Regions when traitors aboard the space station Kilran's Lance disable the facility's defenses just as the Republic attack ; along with the Imperial fleet, the squadron drives back the Republic and secures the station. The Empire's Fury also proves essential in the destruction of the famous Republic capital ship the Intercessor above the planet Vondoru , aiding the Imperial fleet against Republic reinforcements. When the Republic manages to blockade the main supply rout to the Chiss Ascendancy, the Empire's Fury is sent to smash the minefield blockade and reopen the supply lane to the Empire's allies.

The insectoid Colicoids , famed weapon-makers who have remained neutral thus far, issue a challenge to both the Republic and the Empire: a contest of military might, the winner of which receives an exclusive contract with the Colicoids. Both governments send small strike forces to the Colicoid's battleground in the Outer Rim, and the two groups of combatants face off against Colicoids and advanced droids and weapons of their making. As promised, the victor receives the contract with the Colicoids.

Amid the growing conflict, an Imperial ship makes a bold strike at the heart of the Core Worlds—the Jedi enclave on the planet Rhinnal is destroyed, and the Republic frigate Toron Voq is obliterated when it tries to investigate. In its last moments, the Toron Voq relays images of a Sith dreadnaught, albeit an outdated model. However, the Republic intercepts Imperial communications that reveal it is not the Empire behind the attack: over the last few days, the same ship has been attacking the fortresses of non-pureblood Sith Lords.

The ship is the Red Reaper under the command of the pureblood Sith Lord Darth Ikoral , who is obsessed with blood purity and has not been seen since he left on a mission to locate other purebloods outside of the Empire seventy years earlier. The Red Reaper soon strikes again at Chandrila , but strike forces sent by both galactic powers board the Red Reaper in orbit, and Darth Ikoral is killed in the fighting.

Impressed by the newest Champion's successes, the other Grand Champions arrange a party on Nar Shaddaa—but the hunter arrives to find the other Champions dead, killed by a Jedi-lead strike team that reports to the same mysterious Jedi behind the Quesh trap. The Jedi seeks to bring the hunter to justice for Jarro's death and the Aurora ' s destruction, and Chancellor Janarus himself announces a massive bounty on the hunter, framing the Grand Champion for dozens of crimes. As the Empire publicly distances itself from the Champion, the hunter is ordered to report to the Sith Lord Darth Tormen , who forcibly enlists the services of the hunter but promises revenge against the Jedi who framed the Champion— Jun Seros.

With Revan seemingly dead and open warfare breaking out across the galaxy, the Empire's forces directly invade the Mid Rim , and Chancellor Janarus officially dissolves the Treaty of Coruscant in response to the Empire's invasion and war crimes. The Empire pushes their forces even further in an invasion of the Core Worlds, seizing the planet Corellia with the help of the Corellian Council. The Hero of Tython finally breaks free from the Emperor's mental control and, with the surprising help of Lord Scourge, escapes back to Tython.

Scourge reveals to the Jedi Council that the Emperor intends to commit galactic genocide—through a powerful Sith ritual, he will consume all life in the galaxy—but he needs a sacrifice of planetary proportions to begin. With Scourge as an uneasy ally, the Knight and crew head to the Republic prison planet of Belsavis , where the Emperor has manipulated the Empire into invading the Republic prison complex as his agent Executor Krannus works to destroy the world.

  4. Ace and crew meet with Darmas Pollaran and Senator Dodonna aboard Port Nowhere, and they both pledge their help to the smuggler's efforts to take down Rogun the Butcher. The first step is to locate Rogun's former mentor Ivory , a crime lord imprisoned on Belsavis, and so the smuggler sets out for the prison world. An ancient Rakatan prison world upon which the Republic built their own secret prison, Belsavis was kept hidden from the Empire, but they learned of the planet's location when Ivory contacted them on a stolen transmitter. The Empire arrives and promptly bombards the planet, damaging much of the prison and releasing the facility's inmates—criminals who immediately begin to riot with the aid of the Empire.

    Beyond that, the Empire seeks to free the six Sith Lords known as the Dread Masters , and numerous Imperial task forces are sent in to locate and free them. As the chaos spreads throughout the planet, it is soon discovered that the Empire's bombardment damaged the Rakatan prison as well, and the strange Esh-kha species is unleashed from the planet's depths along with monstrous Rakatan creatures.

    The Esh-kha even kidnap the Dread Masters, but the Empire frees them nonetheless. The Republic also foils the Esh-kha's plot to free the mysterious World Razer entity from its imprisonment. Finding Grand Master Shan's Jedi contact dead, the Hero enlists the criminal-tunred-honorary-guard Pak Taldine 's help in tracking down Krannus; the Executor's subordinates and members of his death cult slow down the Jedi, but the Hero catches up to Krannus in the Rakatan prison known as the Tomb and prevents him from detonating the prison's hyperspace-powered central power core.

    Darth Tormen seeks to suppress the growing resistance to Imperial rule on Corellia, but first hires the Grand Champion to eliminate two potential threats to his plan. The first is on Belsavis: Zale Barrows , a former Republic privateer who now works as the unofficial "ferryman" for Belsavis prison. Barrows was unable to leave Belsavis before the Imperial invasion, and the hunter arrives in the early stages of the battle as the Empire seeks to free strategically important prisoners and incite rioting. With the help of an aggressive Houk prisoner named Skadge , who blames Barrows for his imprisonment, the hunter pursues Barrows deeper and deeper into the prison facilities, until the Champion and Skadge finally catch up to him in the Tomb.

    Skadge exacts his revenge on Barrows and joins the hunter's crew as they depart Belsavis—only to find that one of the group has been kidnapped. A ransom message lures the Grand Champion to Hoth, where the hunter defeats the kidnappers and learns that they are members of the GenoHaradan group. The Core World of Corellia has suffered under Imperial occupation since the dissolution of the Treaty of Coruscant, as the Dark Councilor Darth Decimus organized an invasion that cut off all communication with the Republic.

    However, the Corellian people have resisted the Empire's rule, and battles rage throughout the capital of Coronet City and the outlying regions as the Green Jedi and the Corellian Security Force lead the Corellians in waging guerrilla war against the Empire. The Republic soon manages to establish a foothold in the Blastfield Shipyards and lends their support to the Corellians.

    With the support of the Rift Alliance, the Voss, and the Esh-kha, the Barsen'thor sets out for Corellia, and at Janarus's request, the Jedi's forces intercept and stop an Imperial fleet led by the dreadnaught Javelin from reaching Corellia. Tormen then forces his prisoners to formally surrender to the Empire, and the Imperial puppet Prime Minister Cal Falcone officially submits to Imperial rule.

    Just as Tormen planned, the surrender spurs the Republic to mobilize a fleet to aid Corellia, and both Jun Seros and Chancellor Janarus accompany the fleet. After killing Jun Seros and avenging the other Grand Champions, the hunter infiltrates the Chancellor's vessel and assassinates him, dealing a severe blow to Republic morale.

    In the following days, the Republic elects Leontyne Saresh as Janarus's successor in an emergency session, and she continues to send reinforcements to Corellia—but Decimus's forces smash the Republic forces and eliminate the entire Green Jedi Council , driving the Republic back to the Blastfield Shipyards. Despite their heavy losses on Corellia, the Empire continues to press the offensive against the Republic—Grand Moff Ilyan Regus initiates Operation Dark Ice , a plan to use crystals from the planet Ilum to create a fleet of stealth ships.

    Supreme Commander Rans works to counter the Empire's plans on Ilum with the support of alien allies such as the Wookiees, Kaleesh, and Ongree , and the Battle of Ilum rages across the once serene ice world. To the surprise of both the Republic and the Empire, Darth Malgus broadcasts a declaration of a New Empire —one that embraced allies of any species, and would be free of the infighting and petty bickering of the Sith Empire.

    Malgus then reveals that he has in fact secured many Adegan crystals for his own stealth armada, and seizes the fallen Emperor's space station as his own. Malgus's lieutenant Darth Serevin leads a massive invasion of Ilum, turning the conflict into a three-way war. However, Serevin is slain in an assault on Malgus's base, Fort Barrow , along with many of Malgus's alien allies.

    The Empire and Republic then besiege Malgus the Betrayer's space station, but he unveils the technical prowess of his Anomid allies and uses powerful flux cannons to attack the enemy fleets. Enemy forces board the space station and fight their way through Malgus's forces, removing the flux cannons from Malgus's control and also destroying a repaired HK Malgus's New Imperial Guard is unable to prevent the invaders from reaching the throne room, and Malgus himself confronts his enemies in a titanic battle—one that ends with Malgus falling to his death as the space station comes under fire from both the Republic and the Empire.

    Along with the loss of most of the Dark Council to both the Republic and infighting, the Empire begins to struggle to maintain their offensive against the Republic. During the fighting on Belsavis, bombardment unintentionally breaches a section of the ancient Rakatan prison—a section known as the Eternity Vault. Realizing that they may have unleashed something that even the Rakata wished to keep locked away, both groups send forces to seal the vault. Battling through Rakatan defenses and powerful prisoners, the true threat in the vault is revealed: the Rakatan warlord Soa , who falls after a titanic battle.

    Amid the galactic conflict, the vengeful Tionese scientist Sannus Lorrick unleashes the rakghoul plague upon the Tion Hegemony , an independent sector in the far reaches of the galaxy and Lorrick's home before he was exiled for conducting deranged experiments on sentient beings. Lorrick arranges for unsuspecting pilots to ferry the virus to worlds across the Hegemony, and an infected risp carried by the smugger Zama Brak brings down the passenger liner Stardream over Tatooine, forcing both the Republic and the Empire to quarantine the planet as the virus infects the native wildlife and settlers.

    The galactic powers investigate the outbreak on the planet Kaon and learn of Lorrick's hand in the crisis, prompting an all-out assault on Lorrick's island laboratory on Ord Mantell to end the threat that the insane scientist posed. Lorrick is killed during the fighting, ending his plans for the conquest and destruction of the Tion Hegemony. Sensing the Emperor's apparent death, the Dread Masters decide to break from the Empire, as the one being worthy of their loyalty is no longer at its head.

    Using their powers to manipulate minds through fear, the Dread Masters acquire a growing force of Imperial soldiers and ships and begin to attack the edges of Hutt Space, wielding Force phantoms and driving their enemies insane with fear in order to eliminate any opposition. Janeway explains that it is formal clothing , causing the officer to mention clothing from Kalto Province. She inquires about clothing shops and the officer points one out. Proceeding to a shop, Paris notices a timepiece on display with the time The shopkeeper notices him and proceeds over, which prompts Paris to inquire about the timepiece.

    The shopkeeper explains about the timepiece, noting that that the three number sets are equal to rotations, intervals, and fractions. He notes that the object costs fourteen kelodas , but Paris leaves, saying he will think about buying it later — if there's time. Returning to Janeway, he estimates that the planet will be destroyed the next day. In Voyager 's briefing room , Torres and Kim discuss how Janeway and Paris were thrown back in time by a subspace fracture.

    The mystery was why Paris returned from the past to the present. This was due to him being only partly in the fracture. Hoping that Janeway activated a subspace beacon from her combadge , Kim and Torres begin to develop an idea on widening the fracture at the beacon's location to return Janeway and Paris to the present, but they don't yet know how this might be done. Meanwhile, Kes is in sickbay with Neelix receiving scans of her brain due to her telepathic experience.

    However, Kes' anatomy isn't on file in the medical records, making The Doctor upset. He starts making sarcastic remarks regarding medical protocol for new crew members and inquiring whether other new crew were on board as well. Kes notifies him that the Maquis crew were also on board, resulting in The Doctor attempting to contact Janeway, until he is told she's missing.

    He prompts them to notify the highest ranking officer who is "not missing" to visit him and to shut off his program when they leave. Neelix reminds The Doctor that he never told them about her condition. The Doctor makes a humorous remark as that she is the healthiest member of her species that he has seen, since she is the only Ocampa that he has ever seen. He takes a guess at Kes' condition and speculates that it is due to physiological adjustments to space travel.

    She is advised to drink lots of fluids as he considers it sound advice regardless of her condition and she deactivates The Doctor's program. In a clothing shop on the planet, Janeway and Paris' two Starfleet uniforms are on display.

    They emerge from the shop wearing clothing similar to that of the planet's citizens. To assist Voyager in their search, Janeway activates a subspace beacon from her combadge. Concerned for the planet's citizens, Paris wants to notify the people about upcoming events. They begin a conversation about the Prime Directive , which turns into an argument. Paris recalls his father lecturing him about the Prime Directive like a holiday sermon. Janeway reminds Paris that his father considered it the guiding principle of space exploration and sternly orders him not to warn the planet's citizens of their impending armageddon.

    The argument ends when they see Latika watching them. They try to move away, but the boy catches up and accuses them of lying. He says he went to the Continental Transport and talked to the transport attendant , who mentioned he transported only four people that day, including two older citizens with a child.

    Paris attempts to scare the boy by mentioning that he and Janeway ate their child and that they were demons. Scared, the boy runs away. With the boy gone, they begin to develop a plan on how to return to the present. Janeway comes up with an idea to use a tricorder to emit a polaric field to scan for fractures. They find a polaric energy conduit in the town square which makes Paris wonder where the energy comes from. At a power plant , a protest demonstration is in progress. The protesters are shouting complaints as the guards attempt to hold them back.

    Author Bryan W. Alaspa Releases Young Adult Novel, Sapphire, As Audiobook

    Looking for the power plant, Janeway and Paris come upon the demonstration. Latika is following them unnoticed. The scene becomes violent as the guards enter the crowd and start hitting people with batons. One of the guards sees Janeway and hits her in the head, causing her to fall back. Paris punches the guard as the protest leader helps Janeway up and leads her out of the area.

    The rest of the crowd, including Paris, follows. In engineering , Kim and Torres demonstrate the object they have developed to open a subspace fracture to Chakotay and Tuvok: a polaric generator. The device is activated and emits a green beam in front of them, causing a ripple effect. It uses the same polaric energy used on the planet to open a fracture. Tuvok recommends using the generator where Janeway and Paris disappeared.

    At that instant, the fracture emits a large burst of light and the generator disengages. The one problem with the generator is that it burns out after a maximum of 30 seconds at the necessary intensity. Another issue with the generator is that it cannot be used in the same location more than once due to subspace damage. Chakotay brings up the concern of becoming trapped in a fracture themselves. Torres has thought ahead and modified some tricorders to detect the fractures. She then displays an armband that deploys an antipolaric field. Chakotay compliments Torres and Kim and starts to leave, until Kes and Neelix arrive.

    Kes insists that she needs to join the away team to the planet. She mentions she has already seen the planet and insists again. Chakotay considers her request. Paris and Janeway are in a house owned by the protest leader. Paris is treating Janeway's head wound. The lead protester and his colleague come from the upper level to talk to them. He inquires as to why they were at the power plant. Janeway continues to use her alibi by saying she was touring the plant, comparing it to the one from Kalto Province.

    Terla becomes suspicious, mentioning that he has never seen a Kalton with Janeway's hair color. She attempts to shrug it off until Makull wonders if they are part of the government, despite the wound she received. Paris does not know why anybody would want to infiltrate the protesters, though Makull mentions that polaric protests occur in Kalto also.

    He starts questioning Janeway and Paris about the day before, inquiring when they were last at a power plant and if they were in it earlier. Terla brings out a hand-held device, a safety monitor for polaric energy. He states that Janeway and Paris were reading five times the normal readings of a citizen, making them think they were in a power plant previously. He and another colleague take out pistols and aim them at Janeway and Paris. In the present, an away team consisting of Chakotay, Kes, Tuvok, Torres and Kim are at the location where Janeway and Paris disappeared.

    Kes' telepathic senses give her the feeling that she can reach out and touch the citizens of the past. Scanning the area, Tuvok cannot locate any fractures in subspace. Kim, who is a distance away, calls out the team. He has located a signal from a combadge, in present time. They attempt to communicate, but there is no response.

    They follow the signal in hopes of finding some answers. In the past, Janeway is being asked questions while Paris is still under guard. Makull asks for her name, which she reluctantly provides. Makull thinks it is an unusual name which she shrugs off by saying it is not unusual in Kalto Province. He then asks what area of Kalto she came from, which she tries to dodge in saying there was no point to the question. He asks if the government knows of their plans, and Janeway truthfully answers that she doesn't know. They are interrupted when Terla enters the room holding on to a struggling Latika.

    Present time, the away teams arrives at the building where Janeway and Paris were held. They do not detect any life-signs. Janeway tries to prevent Latika from being involved at risk of being revealed. This risk becomes real when the boy shouts out that they are lying about their identity. Paris sarcastically thanks the boy as Makull listens to him. He mentions they lied about taking the Continental Transport, because he talked to the attendant himself. Terla asks Makull what he should do with the boy.

    He tells him to place him at the stairway with Paris. He does so, threatening Latika so that he will remain quiet. In the present, the team locate two damaged combadges. The combadges had automatically activated a signal when they were damaged by the explosion. They search the area for any further evidence. On Makull's desk are a tricorder and a phaser. He questions Janeway on their use, thinking they are spy equipment. She lies by mentioning they are surveying equipment and that she and Paris were interested in buying land.

    Terla is curious and asks Janeway to see how they work. She hesitantly reaches for the phaser but Makull stops her, cautious that it might be a weapon. On the stairs, Paris starts to talk with the boy, mentioning he was right that he didn't eat children. Latika mentions that he didn't really scare him and he would tell his father at the Media Bureau about Paris and Janeway. Paris interrupts Latika by asking if his father was a journalist , which he is, and so is Latika.

    Flash Point

    He writes for his school newspaper, and he mentions he's going to write about their lies. Paris asks the boy's name, which Latika tells him. He then apologizes to Latika, but doesn't mention why due to the Prime Directive. Makull is now talking to Janeway about the dangers of polaric energy, mentioning it could destroy the whole planet. He mentions that their cause received much support after the accident at Markov. Still believing Janeway and Paris are spies, he mentions that they are going ahead with their plan the next day.

    Janeway then comes up with an idea saying aloud, " Wait a minute. When Kes calls out to her, Janeway can also hear Kes. Makull goes over to Janeway and asks if she has anything else to say. In the present, Kes mentions to Chakotay that she can feel the presence of Janeway and Paris. Chakotay inquires if there is a subspace fracture present, which there is. He orders that the generator be set up. In the past, Janeway continues to reveal information about herself, stating that she and Paris were from the future. Latika is amazed that his assumption of them was, indeed, true.

    She reveals to Makull that there is going to be a polaric explosion that will destroy the planet. Makull doesn't buy it, despite her explanation of how she and Paris were thrown into the past. The generator is set up in present time at the proper coordinates. It is activated and the fracture is located.
