The content of this Star Wars Legends article was cut.

This article covers a subject that was cut from the final version of a Star Wars Legends source. The subject appeared in no other source and was therefore considered non-canon within the Legends continuity.

The HK Manufacturing Plant was a factory located underneath the Telos Military Base.

History[edit | edit source]

After Darth Revan witnessed first-hand the abilities of the HK-47 assassin droid he created, he decided that more droids of this design would make excellent agents for his purposes. HK-47 became the basis for a new model of HK-series assassin droids: the HK-50. Revan was captured and his memory was erased before this plan could be realized, however, and the production on the HK-50 model ceases for several years. Eventually, the crime lord G0-T0, who was in fact a planning droid previously assigned to Telos IV, discovered the HK-50 manufacturing facility and reactivated it, disseminating the new model assassin droids throughout the galaxy searching for the Jedi.[1]

During her travels Meetra Surik visited to the Telos factory along with HK-47. The assassin droid convinced the HK-50 models to join his cause. The combined droid forces later helped defeat G0-T0 in a showdown on Malachor V allowing for the planet to finally be destroyed.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

A room in the cut interior of the HK Manufacturing Plant

The HK manufacturing plant was deleted from Knights of the Old Republic II, though many of the source files were included with the PC version.

The "entrance" to the HK Manufacturing Plant however is still in game though the door is sealed shut. When the PC reaches the Czerka Military Base on Telos, a door labeled "Sub-Level" is sealed. Beyond the door is supposed to be an elevator leading down into the sub level of the base where a number of control rooms are present to the base and then another elevator into the actual Manufacturing Plant.

The HK Manufacturing Plant was planned to be restored by The Sith Lords Restoration Project, and has been restored by The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod.

Cut Content[edit | edit source]

In the cut version of the factory the plant was run by G0-T0 to produce HK-50 and HK-51 assassin droids. HK-47 visited during Meetra Surik's journey to locate missing Jedi Council members.

During his time in the factory, HK-47 fought a large number of HK-50 droids, and a much smaller number of HK-51 droids. HK-47 had the option to persuade either the HK-50 or the HK-51 droids to join him and defeat G0-T0 on Malachor V. He also had the option to destroy all the droids.

According to Chris Avellone, Bao-Dur was intended to die while helping HK-47 reach and shut down the factory.[3]
