- "Jaden, I'm sending you to Hoth, where I had a vision of Obi-Wan Kenobi. I imagine there is a pretty strong aura there."
- ―Jedi Master Luke Skywalker assigning Jaden Korr to Hoth
The Disciples of Ragnos, a Sith cult, has stolen information from Luke Skywalker's records about locations where he felt a strong connection to the Force. Skywalker sent members of the New Jedi Order to investigate these places and find out what the cult was up to.
Once reaching the location with his Far Wanderer, Korr could not sense any Force energy and considered whether Skywalker was wrong about his intuitions. Just then, he detected a flashing beacon and decided to investigate. It turned out that the beacons formed a path through the snowy canyons, where Korr encountered many snowtroopers and probe droids, even an All Terrain Scout Transport, thus confirming the Imperial Remnant and the Disciples of Ragnos's interest in the area, and also a few wampas.
Eventually, Korr came to the ruins of Echo Base. However, the main entrance was locked, and Korr had to find other means of entering. He got into Echo Base through an underground tunnel, connecting the base with a wrecked AT-AT, which was heavily guarded by Imperial forces.
In the base, Korr overheard a cultist communicating to a person named Alora about Dagobah. Making his way through the corridors, Korr entered a large room, where he encountered Alora, a Dark Jedi and Tavion's apprentice. She challenged Korr to a duel. Korr emerged victorious, as Alora fled through a hole in the ceiling.
Having completed the mission, Korr returned to the Jedi Academy, where he was considered to have passed the Jedi Initiate Trials and was promoted to the rank of Apprentice. The results of the mission were documented in the datacard Tauntaun Feathers A1.
Behind the scenesEdit
This is the only level of the game where the player does not wear the clothing selected at the beginning of the game (as the outfits would be impractical in the extreme cold).
It is possible to find the main entrance of Echo Base, but it is locked. Also findable, is what looks like the destroyed remains of the Shield generator, which looks much smaller that it is in other games.
Through the use of Force speed it is possible to save a Tauntaun from the Wampa near the end of the level and use it in the duel with Alora. However, due to the difficulty involved, this is most likely non-canon.
