- "The detention center's warden says my old squad-mates are serving life sentences."
- ―Sergeant Rusk
The Galactic Republic detention facility on the planet Berrun was run by a warden during the Cold War with the Sith Empire. Around 3641 BBY, Sergeant Fideltin Rusk of the Republic Military contacted the warden in order to confirm rumors that the members of his first command were imprisoned at the Berrun facility, and the prison official informed the Chagrian officer that his squad had in fact been incarcerated in the facility after they began targeting the families of enemy commanders. The Republic Special Forces Division had been forced to arrest the squad, which was part of its black ops program. The Surgeons, as the squad had been known, was convicted of war crimes and imprisoned under life sentences, and the warden conveyed that information and the fact that the squad was proud of their actions to Rusk when contacted.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The prison Warden was first mentioned during the conversation "The Surgeons" with the Jedi Knight companion character Fideltin Rusk, in the 2011 BioWare–LucasArts video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, though the warden's species and gender is not specified.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Star Wars: The Old Republic—Conversation with Sergeant Rusk: "The Surgeons"
- 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 , 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 swtor.com posts, Act I takes place near the end of 3643 BBY. places
