    Var Suthra
    A Sith, working as my chief scientist! How can I defend the Republic if I can't trust my own people? Tarnis's entire engineering team vanished along with the Planet Prison. They're all traitors, too!
    I've known that team for years. I never saw a hint they were anything less than patriots.
    Hero of Tython
    The Sith want us to panic. Don't give in to fear. Sith are masters of deception. We can't be certain of anything.
    Var Suthra
    I'm certain the Sith want us dead. Tarnis will use the Planet Prison against Coruscant. He could trap us here forever. Paralyze the Republic by holding us hostage. You're our only hope of stopping that. You and Kira are the only Jedi with the Council's authorization.
    Kira Carsen
    For good reason. We're both amazing.
    Hero of Tython
    I'll stop him, General - but I need to know where he is.
    Kira Carsen
    That's where I come in. I just traced that holocall we intercepted from the Black Sun base. Tarnis was communicating from down in sector 439.
    Var Suthra
    Justicar territory! Tarnis knows we're not welcome there. Justicars are paramilitary vigilantes. They took over a sector - cut ties with the rest of Coruscant. And they don't like visitors.
    Hero of Tython
    You called them vigilantes. Explain.
    Var Suthra
    Many Justicars are ex-Republic military who came home to find gangsters controlling their neighborhoods. They believe the Republic abandoned Coruscant to crime, so they've taken matters into their own hands.
    The Justicars are well trained and armed, but they don't concern me. It's the Sith Lord I'm worried about.
    Kira Carsen
    You shouldn't face Tarnis alone. I may only be a Padawan, but I can help you.
    Hero of Tython
    What do you think, General?
    Var Suthra
    An excellent idea. In fact, I insist you take her.
    Kira Carsen
    You'll be glad to have me before this is done. I promise.
    T7-O1
    T7 = wait here // Kira + Jedi = be careful + be fast!
    Var Suthra
    Stop Tarnis before he uses the Planet Prison against us. The fate of the Republic rests on your shoulders, Jedi. May the Force be with you.

  • Hero of Tython's Followers killed a number of Justicar Prison Guards
  • Hero of Tython's Followers killed a number of Salky Hound

    Jonkan
    Uhh... Jedi? Thank the stars.
    Kira Carsen
    I don't see a Planet Prison anywhere. That's not good.
    Jonkan
    We've been such fools. Tarnis - he's a Sith!
    Hero of Tython
    I've come to stop him. What happened here?
    Jonkan
    Tarnis tricked us. Said you Jedi were going to shut the project down. Told us to bring the Planet Prison here. Keep it safe. Thought we were saving the Republic. We brought Tarnis the prototype. He turned on us. Killed everyone.
    PLAYER: Tell me how to find him. I need to know where Tarnis went.
    Hero of Tython
    Hang in there. I'll get you to a medical bay.
    Jonkan
    No time. Tarnis has the Planet Prison. He'll use it.
    Prototype creates a massive heat signature when activated. Run a thermal scan. You'll find Tarnis. Planet Prison needs time to build up power. Enough time for you to destroy it. Save Coruscant....
    Kira Carsen
    Poor man. He didn't deserve this. kira_carsen: I'll run a thermal scan from one of these terminals. Come on...
  • Jonkan, Hero of Tython, Kira Carsen
  • Jonkan died

    Kira Carsen
    Running a thermal scan... whoa, the technician wasn't kidding. Something's really lighting up. Tracking....
    Here we go. Sector 167, coordinates 8863.... Oh, you've got to be kidding me. The signal's coming from the ruins of the Jedi Temple.
    Hero of Tython
    If the Planet Prison has been activated, we don't have much time. But I thought the Jedi Temple was destroyed in the war...
    Kira Carsen
    Pieces rained down into the lower levels. The temple ruins are in a hazard zone called "the Works." People go in but don't come out. There's an old elevator down to the Works near here. Hope you're ready for anything, because that's about as much as I know.
    Hero of Tython
    If a Sith can get down there, so can we.
    Kira Carsen
    Let's hope we get down there in one piece - and he didn't.
    Hero of Tython
    Can't you find out anything more about the Works?
    Kira Carsen
    Let's just assume the file describes a lot of awful badness and leave it at that.

, and they fought their way through into the group's main detention facility where the signal had originated.
There, they discovered the dead bodies of the disappeared team, and found the only person still alive: a technician named Jonkan

, who told the two Jedi what had happened. Tarnis had tricked the members of the project, telling them that the Jedi intended to shut it down and asked them to steal the prototype for him. However, when the researchers arrived with the weapon, Tarnis killed them all. Before he died, Jonkan told the Knight that the Planet Prison needed time to charge up, and it generated an enormous amount of heat in the process.
Thanks to the Jonkan's help, Carsen used the room's computer terminal and tracked the location of the Planet Prison to the ruins of the old Jedi Temple which had been located in the Works.
