    Dialog transcript
    3V-1L = surprised // you = interested in learning power of the dark side?
    I've done everything in my power to avoid the pull of the dark side.
    opportunity = missed // dark side = only path to greatness
    We only came here to see what was going on. This isn't what we expected.
    3V = full of surprises // you = intrigued?
    Hero of Tython
    That depends. Do you mean understanding the dark side as a weapon wielded by the Jedi's enemies, or learning to use it myself?
    Empire = absurd // Sith = ridiculous
    Master = only true teacher of the dark side
    Light side, dark side, does any of that matter? I can't use the Force.
    Force sensitivity = irrelevant. 3V = recognizes presence of dark power
    Then what else do you think you can teach me?
    you = promising student of the dark side
    3V-1L = disciple of the dark side // 3V-1L = Master's most important apprentice
    Master = generous // power + strength = gifts for Master's students
    Hero of Tython
    There are greater gifts than power and strength. Defending the defenseless, upholding peace....
    3V = audio input circuits corrupted? // you = believe something is more important than power?
    you + current theory = talented, but could be better // you + Master's wisdom = unstoppable!
    3V = here on behalf of Master // Master = searching for more followers
    Who is your master? Followers? For what purpose?
    I don't think you're in the right spot for that, little buddy.
    Carrick Station security = can not catch 3V // Carrick Station zoning committee = no match for Master's power
    Master = teaches any who are worthy // 3V-1L = Master's most worthy apprentice
    plan = top secret // 3V + Master = only two who possess knowledge
    3V = protect Master's identity // Master = only meets disciples with great potential
    you = worthy student? // you = earn meeting with Master?
    Hero of Tython
    [Lie> We're in. How do we meet your master? What's the process?
    you = accepted quickly // 3V = disappointed // 3V = missed chance to practice mind control techniques
    you = complete three trials // Master = will be pleased
    teach you ways of the dark side, spread terror and suffering // first trial = simple but deadly
    you + mouse droid = sow chaos // cantina patrons = endure despair and pain
    Is this some kind of joke? What you're asking doesn't make sense.
    Master = would prefer cantina chaos // 3V = can not guarantee "murder" deviation will be approved
    Fine, then I'll do things your way.
    you = wise // Master = appreciates obedience
    Dealer's Den cantina on Coruscant = perfect place for anarchy // you = find way to spread fire and panic!
    You... want us to take a mouse droid... and play jokes on people in a cantina?
    term "joke" = not found in memory banks
    you = do not question Master's plan // cantina patrons = unsuspecting, oblivious, perfect targets of dark side turmoil
    trials = very serious // cantina patrons = enemies of the dark side
    [Lie> Anything for the Master!
    you = wise // Master = appreciates unquestioning devotion // 3V = waited very long time before meeting Master

    Dialog transcript
    Mendi Dian
    Huh, this is a surprise. Name's Mendi Dian. I'm with the Strategic Information Service. Gotta say, I never expected someone like you to get involved in something like this. Didn't think anyone else was looking into what's going on here. What's your interest in my case, if you don't mind me asking?
    Your case? You mean you're investigating the droid?
    Hero of Tython
    I sensed something unusual about all this. I appreciate you confirming it.
    Mendi Dian
    You're welcome, I guess? But if you think that little chat you had was unusual, just you wait.... You've spent five minutes with that little astromech. Believe me, you haven't seen anything yet.
    I haven't taken my eyes off that entire Fleet sector since that droid showed up. Who comes, who goes, who the thing actually has a conversation with... I don't miss any of it. So when that bucket of bolts starts handing out orders - and someone takes them - I feel the need to intervene.
    You don't seem very enthusiastic about all this, considering how much effort you're putting in.
    Why are you letting it continue to be such a nuisance? Get rid of it. This is a complete waste of SIS resources, if you ask me. This is a complete waste of SIS resources, if you ask me.
    Mendi Dian
    I'm not disagreeing with you there. On the surface, this doesn't seem like anything to get worked up about. But someone's behind this, and I'm trying to get to the bottom of it. No matter how strange it is.
    I'm struggling to do even the bare minimum, surveillance-wise, on this droid. You keep doing what you're doing. Play along. Run any little errands the droid gives you. That'll give me time to catch up, start really digging into who's letting this misery-spouting astromech run wild on our fleet.
    We'd be happy to assist you.
    Mendi Dian
    Look, if you'd just- oh. Sorry. I usually have to do a lot more convincing before people get me the resources I need.
    I just thought you might like to know there's someone backing you up. When I've got something we can go on, I'll let you know.
    And look, I'm not the biggest fan of asking for help, and I'm not good at either. You're already doing something the droid asked. You're involved now. Whether you like it or not.

This event took place shortly before the end of the Cold War
The Cold War
Cold War (3653BBY - 3642BBY)
When a group of Republic operatives

arrived at Carrick Station
Carrick Station
Space Stations
en route to Coruscant
, they each received an unusual transmission calling for "all seekers of darkness" to gather at Carrick Station. Intrigued and alarmed, they decided to inverstigate, and after some searching, the located the source of the mysterious transmission - an astromech unit of unknown origin. The droid, who introduced itself as 3V-1L
(IMP-A01 Astromech Droid)
, encouraged operatives to undergo trials to prove they were worthy to meet with the droid's mysterious master. The first trial was to go to the Dealer's Den cantina on Coruscant and wreak a havoc among the patrons there using a mouse droid. Whether this was a prank or a serious threat, the operatives decided they will commit to these “dark” trials to uncover the truth.
Once the operatives were out of sight of the droid, they were contacted by Mendi Dian, an agent of the Strategic Information Service. She kept 3V-1L under surveillance and asked the operatives to share what they had discovered. The operatives shared with Dian what they had been asked to do and agreed to cooperate in keeping her informed of their findings.
