    Dialog transcript
    Hero of Tython
    I got your files - but the thief transmitted a decrypted copy to Black Sun. I got your files - but the thief transmitted a decrypted copy to Black Sun.
    Galen
    Krand! Run a full diagnostic. Find out what was in these files.
    You found our stolen military hardware. Good - we need it.
    While you were gone, kidnappers grabbed Doctor Tarnis.
    Hero of Tython
    This is the most secure building on Coruscant. It's full of guards.
    Galen
    Guards never stood a chance. Whoever the kidnappers are, they knew right where to hit us. We were guarding Tarnis night and day. Whoever did this knew our procedures.
    Hero of Tython
    Who are these kidnappers?
    Galen
    No idea - but they're well organized and dangerous.
    Kira led a security team in pursuit, but the kidnappers split up during the chase - hang on. Signal coming in....
    Kira Carsen (HOLO)
    Agent Galen! I've got these creeps pinned down - but they won't surrender!
    T7-O1
    Padawan Kira = in danger // Jedi + T7 = must help
    Kira Carsen (HOLO)
    Don't know how long I can hold them!
  • Hero of Tython, T7-O1, Galen, Krand (from Stolen Secrets)
  • Kira Carsen
  • Black Sun captured Eli Tarnis
  • Characters interacted with each other (dialog)
    Dialog transcript
    Galen
    She's in over her head.
    Hero of Tython
    Have you informed Orgus and Kiwiiks about this?
    Galen
    They're in orbit with the Supreme Chancellor and our fleet commanders. Too far away to help.
    Hero of Tython
    She needs backup. Tell me where to find her.
    Galen
    Kira's signal came from the spaceport. The kidnappers may try taking the doctor offworld.
    You need to stop the kidnappers before they escape with Doctor Tarnis. Hurry!
  • Hero of Tython, T7-O1, Galen
  • Coruscant Security Agents killed a number of Black Sun Abductors and Raiders
  • Characters interacted with each other (dialog)
    Dialog transcript
    Kira Carsen
    Just in time. These guys get points for courage, but we're a little outnumbered. There's more than a few trigger-happy thugs in that docking bay.
    T7-O1
    T7 sensors indicate "more than a few" enemies = accurate assessment
    Kira Carsen
    The kidnappers are threatening to kill Doctor Tarnis, but they might be bluffing. I'm not even sure they have him.
    Hero of Tython
    Are they open to the possibility of surrender?
    Kira Carsen
    Tried negotiating with the leader. He shot at me. Very rude. We lost the other kidnappers. This bunch is our best shot at saving Tarnis.
    So how do we handle this?
    Hero of Tython
    I won't risk them killing Tarnis. We'll do this the hard way.
    Kira Carsen
    Then you shouldn't go in alone.
    I borrowed a stealth field generator from Agent Galen's office. Makes me practically invisible. I can sneak in first, then when you attack, I'll take a few thugs by surprise. What do you think?
    Hero of Tython
    It's a good plan.
    Kira Carsen (activates stealth field)
    Great. Now you see me, now you don't.
    I'll get into position and attack on your signal. Let's rescue us a doctor.

    Dialog transcript
    Zeer
    Agh! Jedi scum. I'll kill you... someday....
    Kira Carsen
    He sure killed my stealth field generator. Oh well - it was fun while it lasted. Isn't teamwork grand?
    Hero of Tython
    You handled yourself like a true Jedi, Kira.
    Kira Carsen
    Wait, I need a holo of that. I want to play it back for Master Kiwiiks.
    No sign of Doctor Tarnis. Kinda puts a damper on things.
    Zeer
    We were the decoys. Now you'll never see your little doctor again.
    Kira Carsen
    Is that so? Give me a minute with this guy. I'll make him talk.
    Hero of Tython
    Be my guest. If nothing else, this'll be entertaining.
    Zeer
    You can't even protect your own people. I ain't saying nothing.
    Kira Carsen
    Thing is, we don't need him to talk. Not when I can just read his mind....
    Zeer
    What? Stop that! Get out of my head! Get out! The doctor's in the Black Sun headquarters! Salarr has him! Just leave me alone!
    Kira Carsen
    Cheap thugs'll believe anything. I can't read your mind, stupid.
    Zeer
    You... you tricked me?
    Hero of Tython
    Nice work, Kira. Smooth, Kira. Very smooth.
    Kira Carsen
    Black Sun is a major crime syndicate. Whatever they want with Tarnis, we'd better save him quick.
    Me and my security detail will clean this up. Agent Galen will want to hear about this.
  • Hero of Tython, T7-O1, Zeer, Kira Carsen
  • Coruscant Security Force captured Zeer

    Dialog transcript
    Galen
    Doctor Tarnis is the least of our worries, General. The stolen data files had details, not only on the Planet Prison - but every weapon prototype and research facility in existence.
    Var Suthra
    Our most powerful experimental weapons, and Black Sun has access to them. How could this happen?
    Hero of Tython
    What does Black Sun stand to gain?
    Galen
    They could make a fortune selling secrets to our enemies
    Hero of Tython
    What are the other weapon prototypes- and why didn't you tell us about them?
    Var Suthra
    Things are called "top secret" for a reason!
    Orgus Din
    Calm down, old friend. It's a fair question - but one for another time.
    Bela Kiwiiks
    We must act quickly to secure these other weapons. Where are they?
    Var Suthra
    Three offworld research facilities. Minimal defenses to give them a low profile. They're vulnerable.
    Orgus Din
    Master Kiwiiks and I will split up and protect two.
    Galen
    And I'll take the third one.
    Orgus Din
    You get the fun part - rescuing Doctor Tarnis and the copied data files from Black Sun.
    Hero of Tython
    We'll be back in time for dinner.
    Bela Kiwiiks
    Kira will stay behind, too. With Agent Galen leaving, her computer talents will be needed.
    Orgus Din
    She can be impulsive, but give her a chance. You'll make a good team.
    Hero of Tython
    She's rough around the edges, but I like her.
    Bela Kiwiiks
    Share what you've learned. She will benefit from your example.
    Orgus Din
    We should go. May the Force be with us all.
    Var Suthra
    I'll escort you to your ships, my friends.

reported that the kidnappers had been tracked to the spaceport and sent them to help Carsen.
The Knight and Teeseven raced to the spaceport to assist Carsen, finding that the Padawan and the CSF had set up a barricade in the entrance of Docking Bay 84 and were locked in a stalemate with the kidnappers. Speaking with Carsen, the Knight learned that they were threatening to kill Tarnis and that their leader, Zeer

, had shot at the Padawan when she tried to negotiate, but Carsen was not sure that Tarnis was even present in the hangar.
The Knight placed Tarnis's safety as a priority, and Carsen offered to use a stealth field generator that she had borrowed from Galen to sneak by the criminals. The Jedi agreed and stormed the hangar while Carsen activated the field and slipped inside. Together, the Knight and Teeseven defeated almost a dozen Black Sun members in the docking bay, and then attempted to access the control room. Opening the door, the Knight was almost ambushed by two gang members on the other side, but the cloaked Carsen knocked them out before they could attack. However, Zeer saw the field flicker and shot in her direction with a blaster. The bolt dissipated over the field, shorting it out and knocking Carsen unconscious. The Knight and Teeseven rushed in to protect her, charging Zeer and the other three criminals in the room and quickly defeating the gang members who were no match for the Knight's martial prowess.
Injured, Zeer fell to his knees and cursed the Jedi, and a recovered Carsen joined the Knight and Teeseven in interrogating the criminal. Zeer laughed at the trio, revealing that he and his men had been decoys, but Carsen pretended to read Zeer's mind in an attempt to make the criminal panic. Her ploy worked, tricking Zeer into telling the Jedi that the head of Black Sun, Salarr, was holding Tarnis in his headquarters. Laughing, Carsen revealed that she was unable to read minds, and the Jedi handed Zeer over to the CSF before the Knight and Teeseven returned to Galen.
