    Ianna Cel
    As you can see by the data, there is no disease in known space that propagates as quickly as the Tarisian rakghoul plague. Even one individual rakghoul can start a pandemic, as we have observed in eighty-one colonies to date. Until a vaccine can be widely distributed, it is highly doubtful that any civilian colonization effort will yield lasting results. Thank you.
    Meteor
    If you're working on a vaccine, We'd like to help. I didn't know rakghouls had gotten so many colonies.
    Ianna Cel
    "Working on" is a generous term. The last breakthrough in rakghoul plague research was three centuries ago.
    Doctor Ianna Cel, but no one gets famous doing Tarisian rakghoul work. The last breakthrough was three centuries ago. HoloNet archives say a Doctor Forn developed a "rakghoul serum" vaccine just hours before the bombardment. I've been trying to acquire this serum, but short of putting a blaster to someone's head, that's not going to happen.
    Hero of Tython
    If there's a cure out there, you'd be saving millions.
    Ianna Cel
    Don't tempt me. There's a pirate camp not far from here. I heard they went after the ruins of Sepanik Memorial Hospital. Sepanik was well preserved. If there's rakghoul serum to be found, it'd be there. I asked Commander Viqui to step in, but since it wasn't a Republic hospital, the pirates have legal salvage rights.
    Barsen'thor
    We'll see what they want in trade for this serum.
    Meteor
    Commander Viqui has her hands full. We'll handle the pirates. What is legal and what is right are often different. We'll pay them a visit.
    Ianna Cel
    That's... that's extremely brave of you. The Death's Claw pirate gang robs anything that talks and shoots anything that doesn't.
    Hero of Tython
    This serum is worth a lot more lives than mine. We're in.
    Ianna Cel
    But please - be careful. This plague has made enough martyrs. I can't say what will be required to get this done, but this plague has infected half a planet's worth of people. So if that serum shows up on my lab table, it'd be unethical to throw it away for any reason. I hope my position is clear.

    Ryamn
    You picked the wrong medbay to rob, vac-brain! There's gonna be two hundred Death's Claw pirates coming through that door!
    Meteor
    There's not that many left. Trust me.
    Ryamn
    Wait, uh... wait, when I said you picked the wrong place to rob, I meant, uh, that we don't have a lot of money. You see these guys lying here? They've got the rakghoul plague. You touch me, and they'll be on you like Hutts on a buffet. Except, you know... faster. And don't think they're incapacitated. They just look that way. I've got a serum you wouldn't believe.
    Hero of Tython
    So it works, does it? I'd heard you dug something up. I'm going to need it.
    Ryamn
    Yeah, we've been using it to... wait. No, you don't. You can't take it! These people are infected! If you cut off my supply of serum, these guys are going to turn. You know what that means? I'm going to have to shoot them all in the head before they try to eat my liver.
    Barsen'thor
    You're a doctor, right? Synthesize some more.
    Ryamn
    With what? My state-of-the-art facilities? I can only use what I find, and we don't find much. The only place I can think of that might have some left is the ruins of Dynamet General. The place was basically ghoul town. The moment we got near, the rakghouls went berserk. It's one of their breeding grounds or something. You want serum, you get it there and leave us alone.
    Voidhound
    We'll look there... once.
    Ryamn
    No, the stuff is down there. I swear on my medical license. The real one.

    Ianna Cel
    Welcome back. Let's get those serum samples analyzed and see what we've got. Well, thank the Force for good Tarisian storage technology. I wasn't sure anything would still be viable after three centuries. While we wait... is there a cost to these samples I should be aware of? A deal with a pirate crew, perhaps?
    Voidhound
    Nothing worth mentioning.
    Ianna Cel
    Ah, here we are. Fortunately, the plague is so virulent, it cultures very rapidly.

crash, the operatives were attacked by a group of pirates trying to get inside the ancient ship. The operatives quickly killed them and continued on their way.
They reached a pirate base in a collapsed medical district, fighting their way in through a scores of well-organized pirates.
While searching the base, operatives came across a laboratory where pirates were conducting their own research on rakghoul serum using stolen research documents. As they collected documents and materials, the operatives were attacked by a lone pirate

attempting to protect the laboratory. The operatives fought back and killed the pirate.
Finally, the operatives discovered a sickbay full of sick and dying pirates. They discovered the serum, but before they could take it, a Twi'lek

, introducing himself as Dr. Ryamn

, asked them not to take it, otherwise the rakghoul-infested pirates in the sick bay would transform and attack. Ryamn convinced the operatives to keep the serum, telling them that he had found it in the ruins of Dynamet General Hospital. The operatives left Ryamn the serum, warning the Twi'lek that they would come back if they couldn't find it.
The operatives went to the Dynamet research level, located deep under the ruins of the main building. While searching for the remains of the rakghoul serum, they discovered that many rakghouls had made the former hospital their home. Wanting to help the Republic if they returned here in search of more serum, the operatives cleared the research level, killing over 20 rakghouls. They found a serum storage with several intact vials inside, took the vials and returned to Dr. Cel.
Dr. Cel tested the serum and concluded that it was effective three hundred years ago, but since the rakghoul plague had mutated since then, it would only provide effective immunity to extremely healthy individuals.
She then turned to operatives for additional help.
