    Satele Shan
    This is Republic Emergency Response Corps secure holofrequency "polaris." A crisis on the Outer Rim requires immediate intervention. The Advozse Hegemony have obtained a Republic battle station and are using it for acts of aggressive expansion, conquering entire star systems. I am Satele Shan, Grand Master of the Jedi Council. I coordinate with the Republic Emergency Response Corps during military crises.
    Voidhound
    How did Advozsec "obtain" our battle station? Did someone leave it unlocked with the keys inside?
    Meteor
    I've never heard of this group. What are they after?
    Satele Shan
    They're a xenophobic political faction seeking to expand. Until now, they've been a containable threat.
    Meteor
    Does this emergency take precedence over my and Barsen'thor's main assignments, Master?
    Satele Shan
    The Hegemony must be stopped immediately. Millions of innocent lives are at stake.
    Voidhound
    No offense, but this sounds like Jedi work to me.
    Satele Shan
    Defending the helpless from tyranny is the work of all Republic citizens.
    During the last war, Republic scientists developed a mobile battle station code-named "Hammer." It bombarded planetary surfaces using asteroids as weapons. Hammer Station was indiscriminately destructive. The project was canceled and its prototype ordered destroyed. We don't know how the Advosze Hegemony now possess it.
    Meteor
    We'll solve that mystery later. The point is, that station could level whole cities.
    Satele Shan
    The planet Skine resisted the Hegemony's demands to surrender. Hammer Station reduced its capital city to ashes two hours ago.
    Voidhound
    Maybe our friends figured out how to construct their own Hammer Station?
    Satele Shan
    They lack the resources to build anything of that magnitude.
    Meteor
    Why do I get the feeling we're about to add "battle station demolitionist" to our resumes?
    Satele Shan
    A direct fleet assault would be suicide. Shields are useless against asteroid strikes. The station can target and destroy large vessels easily. But an assault shuttle could evade the asteroids and deliver a commando team to destroy Hammer Station from the inside. We just need volunteers.
    Hero of Tython
    This is what I trained for. We'll bring down that station, whatever it takes.
    Satele Shan
    Be careful. The Jedi Order cannot afford to lose you.
    Barsen'thor
    Violence is not my way, Master, but destroying that station appears to be our best hope for peace.
    Satele Shan
    The Force is strong in you. Let it guide you to victory.
    Meteor
    You came to the right soldier. I specialize in storming enemy fortresses.
    Satele Shan
    All I ask is that you come back in one piece.
    Voidhound
    I'll do it on one condition: If I die, you build a statue in my honor. Something really impressive - and expensive.
    Satele Shan
    Agreed - but I hope we never have need to fulfill that bargain.
    Voidhound
    And what happens to that commando team when the station blows up - posthumous medals?
    Satele Shan
    Overloading Hammer Station's primary weapon will take time. The boarding party can flee before its detonation.
    Destroying the station is your main objective, but we need to know how the Hegemony obtained it. Any data you recover could prove useful. Hammer Station has just entered orbit above Saleucami and demanded its surrender. Your assault shuttle is standing by. May the Force be with you.

    Dialog transcript
    Hero of Tython
    Hammer Station is destroyed, Master Satele.
    Satele Shan
    The people of Saleucami and the other conquered worlds send their gratitude. The enemy has retreated to their home system. The Hegemony is no longer a threat. This is a time to heal our losses.
    Barsen'thor
    Those conquered worlds will need help rebuilding.
    Satele Shan
    Relief ships are already en route with food and medicine.
    Thanks to you, we know how Hammer Station survived destruction. Years ago, its autopilot was set to fly the station into a nearby star. According to the data you recovered, a mechanical failure cut the station's engines just short of its final destination. Advozsec salvagers discovered it several months ago.
    Meteor
    The salvagers towed Hammer Station back to Hegemony space and gave its government the weapon they'd always wanted.
    Satele Shan
    In the end, the responsibility lies with the Republic. We should never have built such a terrible weapon.
    Voidhound
    Didn't anyone from the Republic bother to make sure that the station was destroyed?
    Satele Shan
    The failure occurred beyond our sensor readings. It took years for Hammer Station to drift where the Advozsec salvagers could detect it. The Senate Security Committee will decide what to do about this incident - but in my experience, truth is always best. Regardless, your valiant efforts will be remembered. Take care - and may the Force be with you.

who were equally surprised by the encounter. Both groups were professionals, which allowed them to discuss their goals before attacking each other. As it turned out, although their motives were different, they had the same goal - to destroy the station. Realizing that their chances of success would be much higher if they worked together - and even higher if they had not lost some of their members before the mission even began - they decided to join forces
