    Strom
    Fantastic, you're back! Governor Saresh needs to speak to you right away - hold on.
    Leontyne Saresh
    How wonderful to see you again! I'm sure you're already noticing the changes your efforts have brought. Rakghoul attacks are down eighty percent in the resettlement zone, and the few we encounter are repelled more easily. Construction crews are back to work - with a bit of arm twisting - and they're developing more ambitious projects. They believe in what we're doing again - thanks to you.
    Meteor
    It's always good to see people fired up about the Republic's work.
    Voidhound
    Now that progress is being made, will the Republic send more resources?
    Leontyne Saresh
    I'm doing my best to see that they do. But in spite of our success, we still have some serious challenges.
    Unfortunately, not all of the news is good. Our success has come at a price. The rakghouls we've displaced now threaten our forward expedition teams. We've endangered our most vulnerable projects. The work those teams are doing is critical to reclaiming Taris. If we don't help them, the confidence we've worked so hard to restore could die forever.
    Rakghoul attacks in the wilderness have reached epidemic proportions. Our expedition teams are in danger of being completely wiped out. The scientists and workers on those teams are critical to our plans to expand across Taris. If they can't finish their work, our entire project will fall apart.
    Barsen'thor
    We won't stand by while innocent lives are at risk.
    Meteor
    Aren't there security forces to protect these people?
    Leontyne Saresh
    Of course. And their numbers are dwindling rapidly.
    Hero of Tython
    Your people will get the job done - you've got our word.
    Leontyne Saresh
    I knew I could count on you. Everyone working in that wilderness has lost friends and comrades - they're frightened, and losing hope quickly. I need you to rekindle that hope - to show our people that no enemy is too powerful to overcome.
    Strom
    The team leads are at Brejik's Run - it was a top-notch swoop track before the Sith attacked.
    Leontyne Saresh
    A speeder will take you out once you're ready. When you land, find my agent, Vealo - he'll be your guide. Hundreds of lives and millions of credits were sacrificed to bring us to this point. Do whatever it takes--our project cannot fail.

    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.
