- "Thirty-two hours ago, thieves raided a military storehouse. They stole weapons, supplies and data files for the Planet Prison project."
- ―Agent Galen
During the Cold War between the Republic and the Sith Empire, the Republic Military maintained a warehouse on the Republic's capital planet Coruscant. By 3643 BBY, the Republic Military stored heavy weaponry and munitions at the warehouse, and the facility's computers had access to the design files for the Planet Prison superweapon. That year, a group of thieves led by the Rodian Vistis Garn raided the warehouse on behalf of the Migrant Merchants' Guild and Black Sun crime syndicates. The group sliced the warehouse's computers to steal the design files along with munitions, rockets, and heavy weaponry before retreating to the Old Galactic Market, the area of Coruscant under the Guild's control. However, Garn's face was seen by security cameras, allowing the Republic Strategic Information Service, the Republic's intelligence agency, to identify him and send a young Jedi Knight to recover the files and weaponry from the criminals.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Star Wars: The Old Republic—Jedi Knight Mission: "Stolen Secrets" on Coruscant
- 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
