    Bardo
    Hold a moment, please. Strom?
    Strom
    Scanning... ID confirmed. It's them.
    Bardo
    Good to meet you, Lieutenant, Masters Jedi, Captain. We've got some... security concerns with the reconstruction project, and Governor Saresh hopes you and your teams can help.
    Voidhound
    You know, the military isn't the only place to find skilled, enterprising individuals....
    Bardo
    The governor is... aware of your reputation as well, Captain. She would actually welcome your assistance, if you're available. The governor is prepared to be very generous.
    Hero of Tython
    If there's anything we can do to help protect your people, we'll do it.
    Barsen'thor
    But you wouldn't need a Jedi's assistance for a simple security matter.
    Strom
    Yeah, I think you could say that. I wouldn't call this one "simple."
    Meteor
    Is Governor Saresh the official in charge here?
    Strom
    Yep. "Duly appointed Senatorial Supervisory Governor for Planetary Affairs," if you're feeling long-winded.
    Bardo
    Taris is substantially more... hazardous than initial reports had suggested. The specifics aren't common knowledge offworld, but....
    Strom
    ...But we're trying to rebuild a planet covered with toxic junk and diseased, carnivorous monsters, and it ain't working.
    Bardo
    Ahem. Governor Saresh has plans to alleviate some of these issues, but they require highly skilled individuals to carry out. Individuals like you.
    Voidhound
    How does the governor plan on dealing with this, exactly?
    Strom
    She'll be happy to discuss the details with you in person. I'll let her know you'll be stopping by.
    Strom
    Just hear her out - you can make a huge difference here.
    Bardo
    Thank you for your time!

    Trig
    I'm sure it would work if we had the manpower, but we don't. The numbers just aren't on our side.
    Leontyne Saresh
    Success isn't in the numbers, Chief. We don't need more people - we need the right people.
    Hero of Tython
    Sorry to interrupt. Excuse me, but we were told to meet with Governor Saresh?
    Leontyne Saresh
    Bardo and Strom found you after all, good. Thank you for coming - I'm Governor Saresh. Our goal on Taris is straightforward: rebuild everything the Sith destroyed, and remind the galaxy that the Republic never gives up. But resources are tight, and we have some serious challenges: toxic chemical spills, scavenging pirates and... the wildlife.
    Trig
    Rakghouls. You've fought your share, I'm sure.
    Barsen'thor
    Where do these creatures come from? How did they get here?
    Trig
    No one's totally sure. They were here before the Sith bombardment, and their numbers have only grown since then.
    Leontyne Saresh
    The rakghouls use tunnels buried in the ruins to attack by surprise and overwhelm our soldiers. Every work crew we send out is decimated. We came here to achieve the greatest reconstruction project in Republic history. Instead, the workers hide in this outpost like frightened children. No more.
    Meteor
    With respect, it sounds like your men have good reasons to be afraid.
    Leontyne Saresh
    You're right, of course. We have scientists working on locating the rakghouls' lairs. Until they do, we have to settle for the next best thing. Chief Trig has a plan....
    Trig
    ...A suicidal plan....
    Leontyne Saresh
    ...A bold plan to collapse the tunnels the rakghouls are using to ambush our people. I know you're up for the task.
    Trig
    Old ventilation shafts still connect a few hubs in the tunnel network to the surface. Drop explosives in enough of them, and the whole thing collapses.
    Voidhound
    Don't you have soldiers here who could handle the job?
    Leontyne Saresh
    Large groups of soldiers attract too many rakghouls, just like the work crews. We need to keep this small.
    Barsen'thor
    Hopefully, this will seal the rakghouls' warrens as well as their escape routes.
    Trig
    Let's hope we're so lucky.
    Leontyne Saresh
    You each have a reputation for handling extraordinary situations. Live up to that reputation. Help us transform Taris into the future of the Republic.

    Hull
    ...I don't care what your plan is! We're not sticking around to get eaten alive. Me and my crew are leaving - period.
    Leontyne Saresh
    If you want to abandon the work you agreed to do for the Republic, I can't stop you. But you aren't leaving. A six-month quarantine requirement has been put into effect. Anyone trying to leave without prior authorization is subject. You can sit in a medical bay and go broke, or you can help us accomplish something unprecedented. It's your choice.
    Voidhound
    You shouldn't be so harsh, Governor. These men aren't fighters.
    Leontyne Saresh
    We are what we choose to be.
    Hull
    This is insane! We're construction workers, we didn't sign up for this!
    Leontyne Saresh
    I know you're going to make the right decision here, Hull. Come back when you do.
    Scouting parties are already reporting lower rakghoul populations. Most of our work crews are gearing up - we're finally gonna get this project moving.
    Meteor
    Is there something more we could do to help, Governor?
    Leontyne Saresh
    Not at the moment - but I'm sure there will be. I'll have Bardo and Strom find you if anything comes up.
    My ancestors called Taris home, once. Thanks to you, millions of people might call it home again someday. Stay safe. And stay in touch.

The creatures used a series of underground tunnels beneath the planet's vast wreckage to attack in swarms without warning. She asked the operatives to collapse the tunnels and cut off the rakghouls' mode of attack by planting explosives in the ventilation shafts still connected to the ancient underground tunnels around the Republic Resettlement Zone.
While collapsing rakghoul tunnels underneath the resettlement zone, the operatives encountered rakghouls
