After the end of the CLONE WARS, much of the galaxy is in the grip of the vast and powerful EMPIRE.
Working to consolidate its power, the EMPIRE has engaged in many secret research projects in the far flung reaches of the galaxy.
Many of these endeavors are opportunities or the criminal underworld of the outer rim, who are eager to gain the wealth and power that these medical and military breakthroughs provide.
And the criminal underworld has no shortage of people to gain these secrets for them.
::The crew meets up with the high ranking agent of the Black Sun Syndicate on the lower level of the space station, in a dive called the Imploded Leku.::
After a lengthy discussion and moderately difficult debate the crew decides to take Father Chainz, this seemingly trusting individual, at his word. He seems completely trustworthy and sincere, a straight shooter.

In return, the Black Sun will forgive the incursion into their base on Coruscant, provide the group with the coordinates to the ship they seek that is in the outer rim, and also make a valuable contact with Father Chainz.
The crew is given disguises that consist of several sets of Imperial uniforms and prisoner outfits with the cover to arrive with prisoners for transfer, and a security password.
Father Chainz instructions are simple: Land and talk to the ground crew. Let them know you are there to meet with “Dr. Tui about the XR-12 deployment”. A Black Sun agent inside will grant you clearance into the facility. Once inside, find the prototype Stimpack and steal it, along with all the research on it. Simple. Right?"
As the crew begins to leave the bar, they run into a mysterious stranger exploring the galaxy and seeking fortune and glory…
