    Elin Garza
    Good work, Lieutenant. My technicians are accessing the Justicars' files now. Patrol schedules, supply manifests, prisoner records- ah! Kardan, you... I think we've found what we were looking for, Lieutenant. You have a new target.
    Meteor
    Are you saying the old man isn't my objective anymore?
    Elin Garza
    Kardan is still an objective, but not your only objective. Kardan had the Justicars work with the Imperials to hijack and rebuild an abandoned Republic communications relay, down in an industrial area called the Works. Apparently, Tavus and his followers are using this relay to route all of their interplanetary communications. If we destroy it, the traitors will be completely cut off from one another.
    Meteor
    Nobody noticed the Imps taking control of this relay? Heads better roll for this.
    Elin Garza
    The relay was abandoned after it crashed down to the Works and went offline during the Imperial sack of Coruscant. According to their files, the Justicars found the relay on the surface several months ago and worked with the Imperials to rebuild it. I'm sending Sergeant Mathin to bring you the explosives you'll need to destroy the relay. He'll rendezvous with you shortly.
    Meteor
    I'll meet up with Sergeant Mathin ASAP.
    Elin Garza
    One last thing: Kardan didn't seem to mesh with the Imperials. I don't think he's as convinced of their supremacy as his proteges are. You're sure to find him guarding that comm relay. Kill him if you have to, Lieutenant, but try to persuade him to surrender peacefully first.
    Meteor
    What can I do to convince Kardan to come in?
    Elin Garza
    Kardan's only concern is the safety of the former Havoc members. He may not be loyal to us, but he isn't loyal to the Empire, either. Convince him that it's in the best interest of Tavus's and the others for him to surrender. That's the best way to sway him.
    Meteor
    Can't hurt to see if Kardan will listen to reason.
    Elin Garza
    I know Jek Kardan, Lieutenant. Convince him that surrendering is the only way that everyone comes out of this alive, and we'll have him. Now hurry and rendezvous with Sergeant Mathin. You'll need those explosives regardless of what happens with Kardan. Good luck. Garza out.

    Mathin
    Hey there, LT. Sergeant Mathin, reporting for duty with fun toys in tow, sir.
    Mathin
    You must have really hauled to get here so fast. Let's see what you've got for me.
    Mathin
    What can I say, sir? Garza says run, so I run. First item of business is your detonator, sir: a Czerka Arms 53-R high-yield thermite explosive. Guaranteed to get a party started - or ended.
    Meteor
    Thanks, Sergeant. How far away should I be when this thing detonates?
    Mathin
    Well, tempting as it is to watch this thing go off, you'll want to be a good way off when it does, sir.
    Now, the comm relay you're going after is in the Works, an industrial area on the lower levels of Coruscant. It's a dangerous place, LT. Besides the Imperials you're bound to find, the rogue service droids down there will squash anyone they can get their big metal claws around.
    Meteor
    Thanks for the warning, Sergeant.
    Mathin
    Just doing my job, LT.
    Once you've made your way to the relay, plant that detonator on the generator coupling at the center--and clear out of there before it goes off. That's all there is to it, LT. I won't hold you up any longer. Good luck.

    Jek Kardan
    Still alive, huh? You really should've gotten out of this while you were ahead, soldier. Now, you're a risk to Tavus and the rest of my people. So, Havoc Squad or not, I'm going to have to kill you.
    Meteor
    You always have a choice, sir.
    Jek Kardan
    I've made my choice. Tavus, Wraith, Needles, Gearbox, Fuse... they're like my children. And I abandoned them. I resigned and left them to fight alone, just to make a point. They need my help now more than ever. I'm not going to abandon them. Not this time.
    Meteor
    If you want to help your people, you'll help me bring them in alive.
    Jek Kardan
    What, so Garza can have all their heads and be done with it? I don't think so. I know you're trying to get into my head, soldier, but it's not going to work.
    Meteor
    I'm just talking, sir - one soldier to another.
    Jek Kardan
    What do we have to talk about? Our objectives are completely at odds. I'm trying to keep my people alive, and it's your mission to kill them. That's all there is to this, soldier.
    Meteor
    I served with your people, sir. I don't want to kill them. General Garza sent me to get your help. She wants to bring your people in alive.
    Jek Kardan
    Not sure if I buy that. But then again, if she sent you to kill me, we wouldn't still be talking, would we? Hmm... you've already compromised the relay. Even if we take you out, it's only a matter of time until Garza has this place slagged for a klick in every direction. And by now, Garza will know exactly where all of the defector bases are. They'll be tethered banthas, cut off from each other and all-
    Imperial Soldier
    Excuse me, sir, but shouldn't we be-
    Jek Kardan
    The Imperials might offer help, but it won't be much. They'll all be left to die.
    Meteor
    Tavus and the others will follow your lead. If you come in peacefully, they will, too.
    Jek Kardan
    Damn... I can't believe it's come to this.
    Imperial Soldier
    Sir?
    Jek Kardan
    All right, soldier. I'll go along with this. But if you harm a single one of my people, you will be dead within the day. Understood?
    Meteor
    You have my word on it, Kardan.
    Jek Kardan
    Let's get on with this, soldier.
    Imperial Soldier
    I can't allow you to go into enemy custody alive, Kardan.
    Jek Kardan
    Are you still here? The op's over, people. Finished. Mission failed. So get out of here, while you've still got the legs to carry you.
    Imperial Soldier
    You leave me no choice, sir. Ready your weapons, men!

    Jek Kardan
    Hmph. Reminds me of old times. Here's my weapon - consider me surrendered. I'll make my way up to the Senate tower and turn myself in. See what Garza wants to do next.
    Meteor
    I'm glad to have you back on our side.
    Jek Kardan
    I never said I was on your side, soldier. I'm doing this for my people, not for your Republic or anything else.
    Meteor
    Anyhow, I'm sure we'll meet again.
    Meteor
    I'm glad I had a chance to fight with you, sir.
    Jek Kardan
    Yeah, I guess it was nice to finally stretch my legs out a bit.
    Meteor
    There's a relay down here that needs to be detonated.
    Jek Kardan
    Yeah, I suppose you've got a job to do. So much work down here for nothing.... See you topside, soldier.
    Aric Jorgan
    Let's go take out that relay and give Kardan's little babies something to think about.

    Elin Garza
    Ah, the hero of the hour. I'm proud of you, Lieutenant. You've done well.
    Meteor
    Just doing my job.
    Elin Garza
    Jek Kardan walked up to the Senate tower's front door and surrendered himself in broad daylight. I never thought I'd see the day. Kardan's help will give us quite an edge against Tavus and the others. I'm glad you could change his mind.
    Meteor
    Do we have Kardan in a secure location?
    Elin Garza
    Shortly. First, we'll make sure he doesn't have any tricks up his sleeve. I haven't come this far by taking chances. Kardan will be kept in restraints, under heavy guard at all times. Trust me, this man is the last person I would underestimate.
    The Justicars' computer files included messages relayed between four locations. Our technicians are working to pinpoint those locations now. There can be no doubt that the messages will lead us to the other traitors. Thanks to your efforts, we'll be able to bring them all to justice very soon.
    Meteor
    What are my orders in the meantime?
    Elin Garza
    As it happens, we've already discovered the location of one of the Havoc traitors: Wraith.
    You remember Senator Krasul from your meeting with the Senate earlier? Wraith kidnapped him from his home just afterward. We've tracked them to a remote space station called Port Raga.
    Meteor
    Has Wraith made any demands? What's her objective?
    Elin Garza
    Our intelligence is very thin at the moment. No demands have been made as yet.
    Meteor
    How could Wraith manage to kidnap a Republic Senator?
    Elin Garza
    Wraith was chosen for Havoc Squad for a reason. Her skills are exceptional.
    One of our teams is already en route to Port Raga. They'll investigate the situation and give you a detailed report on arrival. You've already accomplished some amazing things, Lieutenant, but there's no time for a break yet. Whatever Wraith is planning, we cannot allow her to succeed. Understood?
    Meteor
    What about transport, General?
    Elin Garza
    Havoc Squad requires its own starship for operational flexibility. A ship has already been transferred to your command - it's waiting at the spaceport now.
    Meteor
    I appreciate it, General.
    Elin Garza
    Put it to good use, Lieutenant. Fly to Port Raga and meet with the advance team immediately. Your orders are to rescue Senator Krasul and capture or eliminate Wraith at all costs. Good luck, Lieutenant. Dismissed.
    Aric Jorgan
    Let's get out there and take down some traitors.

    C2-N2
    My new master, at last. I am Seetoo Enntoo, steward of this vessel. It is my extreme good fortune to serve you.
    Meteor
    Why would General Garza saddle me with some overblown protocol droid? You're not even armor-plated.
    C2-N2
    Every soldier requires proper logistics to function. I provide the highest support level available.
    C2-series droids represent the latest advances in everything from starship technical maintenance to nutritional advice tailored for your specific organic needs. Welcome aboard the Rendili Hyperworks BT-7 Thunderclap: a rapid assault craft designed especially for Republic Special Forces at enormous taxpayer expense. Along with the usual accommodations, you'll find a secure captain's locker for storing valuables. Your bridge contains an ever-updating map of the galaxy. It's quite beautiful to look at.
    Priority alerts from the Republic network are accessible at the HoloNet console. Long-range communications are available via the holoterminal. And finally, the ship's intercom will inform your crew that you wish to meet. Do you have any questions, master?
    Meteor
    Sounds like you're good at everything. Does that include combat?
    C2-N2
    As you can see, I am not equipped for physical danger. My function is to maintain this starship as your home away from home. I am happy to assist you with any non-hazardous task, of course. I pride myself on the utmost attention to detail.
    Meteor
    What do you consider a "non-hazardous" task?
    C2-N2
    I am programmed to modify other technology. I can also perform long-range surveillance and diplomacy. I'm quite useful, I assure you.
    Meteor
    Hmm... add a little armor, some combat protocols and a blaster, and you just might be worth something.
    C2-N2
    Master, please... Any non-factory modification will void my warranty.
    The ship is fueled and ready, master. Whenever you are ready to depart, consult the galaxy map on the bridge. The ship's computers will handle the rest.

Summary
"The Republic came just as close to killing me as the Empire ever did. Far as I'm concerned, everyone's my enemy."

to destroy the communications relay and attempt to capture Jek Kardan again, though she authorized to kill him if capture was impossible. Garza was sure that Kardan wasn't as convinced of the Empire's supremacy as his protege were, he was loyal to them and not the Empire - she assumed that he would surrender if it guaranteed the safety of his former squadmates. Kardan could help convince the others to surrender if he didn't want them all killed. Meteor and Jorgan were to meet with Sergeant Mathin

of several snipers along with assault and scout droids and continued on their way. Fighting through Imperial troopers in the Lower Power Distribution sector, Meteor and Jorgan finally made it to the location of the comm relay. As expected, Jek Kardan stood in front of the relay along with a group of four Imperial soldiers.
Meteor attempted to convince Kardan to surrender. Kardan realized that even if he killed both Meteor and Jorgan, General Garza would only send someone else to destroy the comm relay and hunt down his comrades. The Imperials may offer protection but it won't be much. Thus, he agreed to help bring in his friends, but threatened to kill the Lieutenant if they failed to save one of the defectors. His Imperial escorts, however, refused to let him be taken into enemy custody and attacked, but were killed by the Havoc trio.
Using the explosives given by Mathin, Meteor destroyed the comm relay. Kardan gave Meteor his blaster
