    Winborn
    Cut power to the whole blasted planet if you have to! We can't let those crazies take over the network!
    Meteor
    Captain Winborn? Senator Kayl said you need backup. What's the situation? Captain Winborn? Senator Kayl said you need backup. What's the situation?
    Winborn
    We're getting cut to pieces down here. We're not trained to fight an army of killers. These gangsters are smart - organized. Clearly trained offworld. They'll kill thousands. Might even destroy the Senate tower.
    Meteor
    Pull your men back, Captain. Let us handle the criminals.
    Winborn
    It's not that simple. They came here with a plan.
    Hero of Tython
    The Senate tower is nowhere near this sector.
    Winborn
    The scum found themselves a way around that little detail.
    The gangsters brought slicers to access every network node in the sector. They're trying to take over the automated speeder flight paths. They'll cause thousands of mid-air collisions. It'll rain debris on the Senate tower like a meteor storm. No telling how many will die.
    Barsen'thor
    Gangsters need a motive. They're criminals, not terrorists. They wouldn't do this unless they stood to gain something.
    Winborn
    Let's ask them - after we crush their army.
    Hero of Tython
    Send a man to warn the Senators. They need to find shelter.
    Winborn
    I sent word right before you got here, but there isn't enough time to save everyone. We have to stop this here.
    The gangsters have armed patrols guarding the network access points. We need to push them back and manually lock down the terminals.
    Get enough terminals, and we might just pull this off. My men will back you up. Good luck in there.

    Winborn
    My men can't believe you took on all those gangsters--and lived. You're a blasted hero, you know that?
    With the network terminals locked down, the speeder traffic is secure. Now all that's left is pushing out those gangsters for good.
    Meteor
    There was some kind of encrypted message on the network. Looks like a recording.
    Winborn
    Let me see that... hmm... it's an old Migrant Merchants' Guild code. Think I can decrypt it.... Here we go.
    Prakath (RECORDING)
    You accepted our friendship, Senator Kayl--and credits. It's time you paid us back. All we want are the housing projects you promised our people. Now.
    Vanara Kayl (RECORDING)
    Your people will have to wait their turn like everyone else. I owe you nothing. If you continue pushing me, I'll destroy you all.
    Voidhound
    Senator Kayl and the Migrant Merchants' Guild are at war? That's what this was all about?
    Barsen'thor
    I can't believe Senator Kayl would deal with gangsters. Could that message be forged?
    Winborn
    The call was placed directly to her office.
    Voidhound
    Should've known Senator Kayl was too good to be true. She's an even bigger crook than I thought.
    Winborn
    Doesn't make sense. There's gotta be an explanation.
    Vanara Kayl (RECORDING)
    Your extortion attempt has failed. My people are pushing back your little army as we speak. It's over.
    Prakath (RECORDING)
    Nobody breaks a deal with us, Senator. We'll have what we want, one way or another.
    Winborn
    This is way above my pay grade. I'm not destroying the reputation of Coruscant's most popular politician. Take the recording. I don't want it.
    Hero of Tython
    When you wear that uniform, you're upholding the Republic's ideals: freedom, integrity and honesty.
    Winborn
    There's nobody more qualified to handle this than you, Jedi. I know you'll find the truth.
    Voidhound
    A security captain who gives away evidence to complete strangers? How did you get this job?
    Winborn
    I follow my conscience. Whatever's happening, there's a reasonable explanation.
    Senator Kayl has done great things for Coruscant. She's a good woman. Give her a chance. My men and I will stay down here. You should go back to the Senate tower.

Building. Senator Kayl sent a team of Republic operatives to assist Winborn in stopping the terrorist attack.
While fighting Guild members and securing the skylane speeder access points, the operatives discovered a recording of Senator Kayl making a deal with the Guild for money to aid her election campaign. When the deal fell through, Kayl had ordered the CSF to evict the Guild which had led to them planning the terrorist attack. Winborn asked that the operatives to confront the Senator as he did not want to be responsible for the end of her career. The operatives did so and Senator Kayl agreed to inform the Galactic Senate of the deal, after which, she resigned.
