"Thirty-two hours ago, thieves raided a military storehouse. They stole weapons, supplies and data files for the Planet Prison project."
―Agent Galen[src]

In 3643 BBY, at the beginning of a crisis involving the Galactic Republic, the Sith Empire, and stolen superweapons, a team of thieves from the Migrant Merchants' Guild crime syndicate raided a Republic Military warehouse on the planet Coruscant under the leadership of the Rodian Vistis Garn.

History[edit | edit source]

"The thieves' leader slipped up—showed his face to a security camera. We identified him from our criminal database."
―Agent Galen[src]

In 3643 BBY,[2] during the early days of the superweapon crisis involving the Republic and the Sith Empire, the Rodian Vistis Garn was hired by the Black Sun crime syndicate to break into a Republic Military warehouse on the planet Coruscant. Led by Garn, a team of three Rodians, three Ongree, and an Abyssin broke into the warehouse, incapacitated the guards, and stole a shipment of advanced weaponry. The criminals, who were members of the Migrant Merchants' Guild organization, also hacked the warehouse's systems and stole the design files for the Planet Prison[1] and other Republic superweapons.[3]

However, Garn's face was caught on a security camera as they were leaving, allowing the Strategic Information Service—the Republic's intelligence agency—and the Coruscant Security Force to track the group back to the nearby Guild-controlled Old Galactic Market. Agent Galen of the SIS would then send a young Jedi Knight to recover the files and weapons from the thieves in a Guild warehouse there.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The raid is first mentioned in the Jedi Knight mission "The Jedi Envoy" in the 2011 video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, where the event sets up the subsequent mission "Stolen Secrets."[1]

  2. 2.0 2.1 SWTOR mini.png STAR WARS: The Old Republic - Question ! :) - Page 3 on The Old Republic's official website (backup link) places Star Wars: The Old Republic about ten to twelve years after the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, which is dated to 3653 BBY by Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia. The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2 takes place ten years after the treaty, one week after the mission to Nar Shaddaa, and around the time of the SpecForce Incident. Since the mission and the incident are respectively part of Act I of the Jedi Knight and Republic Trooper's storylines, and the Trooper's Act I occurs concurrent to Act I of the Smuggler storyline, the general events of Act I for all classes can be assumed to occur in 3643 BBY. The Prologue for each class immediately precedes Act I, and Act III for all classes begins with the start of the Galactic War, which Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia places around 3640 BBY. Assuming that in-universe chronology of the Star Wars: The Old Republic events roughly aligns with the release of story content in real-life as with SWTOR mini.png Forums: Dear Story Team, What Year Are We Currently In? on The Old Republic's official website (backup link), the Act III Epilogue must take place near the end of 3640 BBY since it was the chronologically latest story of the The Old Republic base game, which was released toward the end of 2011. Therefore, assuming that The Old Republic takes place over the course of three years per the former of the two aforementioned posts, Act I takes place near the end of 3643 BBY.
