Picking a Character
HK begins his little quest inside a droid technician's office. If you had him equipped with items before the Leviathan was boarded, he apparently retains them, so use anything you have to kill the technician, then load up with the parts you find around the office. You can use the parts you find to repair the decommissioned droid in the corner, and use it to take out the Sith troopers that roam the hallways. Follow it down the hallway, until it kills the Sith guard with the keycard you need to rescue Carth and Bastila, then head back towards your point of origin to free them. Otherwise, the flamethrower you find in this room is an excellent killer.
As soon as T3 is left alone in the droid repair office, you'll begin a little mathematical minigame, where you're able to disable the droid that's attempting to wipe your memory. (The correct answers are 3, 10, and 11.) Once the droid is taken care of, grab the equipment from the lockers in the room and load yourself out, then head down to free the Rodian from his cell and free Bastila and the others.
How cool is this guy? He volunteers to shut down his healing mods for a few minutes, then detonate a grenade nearby to give the Sith the impression that he's about to die. Once he escapes the medical facility, he'll need to overpower the guards hand-to-hand until he finds the one with the keycard.
Mission luckily retains a stealth field generator once she breaks out of her cell, which is, you have to admit, a fairly strong indictment against Sith prison policies. Once she's out, you can use her security skill to break the Rodian free from his cell, then activate stealth and head to the terminal in the room near the Sith guard that roams the halls. Unlock the door to the detention area, then head up the hallway and get free Carth, et al.
|Important: There is apparently a bug in the game where, if you free Carth and Bastila while Mission is in stealth mode, she'll stay that way permanently. This can cause huge problems later on, and even make you unable to complete the game if you need to speak to her later on, and can't see her to talk to her. Just to be on the safe side, your best bet is to use another character.|
Jolee has a great little scene with a Sith trooper, after which you'll be freed of your cell. If you've given him decent offensive Force powers, he'll be able to take out all of the troops in the Barracks by himself, which gets you the key to the prison where Carth and Bastila are being held; if you want the extra experience, you can go and play rescue the Rodian anyway.
Juhani, like Jolee, is powerful enough to overpower any of the Sith in the lower part of this level, so you can either free the Rodian, or enter into the barracks to grab the key, which is the more direct route. There is a Sith heavy trooper patrolling the upper hallways of this level, though, so you'll need to use the stealth ability to get past him without dying.
|Important: As with Mission, there is apparently a bug in the game where, if you free Carth and Bastila while Juhani is in stealth mode, she'll stay that way permanently. This can cause huge problems later on, and even make you unable to complete the game if you need to speak to her later on, and can't see her to talk to her.
