The series follows the story of a Pirate called Hake Tah'Joohn who 'accidentally' gets involved into some conflict between two intergalactic powers. The conflict is about an ancient disc which according to the legend brings unlimited strength to the keeper of it. Though this disc can only be used with a related ancient machine which was until now, undiscovered... The game plays as a First Person Shooter where exploration plays a major part. In some parts of the levels stealth is required to reach your objectives.
There is a myth which says that there was once a perfect race there.
It is said that their perfection came forth out of a divine disc.
This disc could bring unlimited strength...
Over time the race vanished, leaving their temples and palaces for the elements to destroy.
When the planet was discovered by the Imperial forces near the end of their dominion, they began transforming the planet into a mining facility. While digging through the rocky soil they stumbled upon these temples and palaces. This is where they found the mythical disc. After the destruction of the second Death Star, when the universe became "free from all tyranny", the planet was abandoned.
What had happened to the disc became a mystery...
The New Republic never could free the galaxy from tyranny completely. The Senate in a while became as corrupt as it was at the time of the Old Republic.
Tsjemir, a thief, earned his money stealing; mostly he looted old Imperial Bunkers or abandoned bases. One day he stumbled on the disc, which wasn't of any value for him, since he didn't know about the myth.
He sold it for very little money to Lillithon a Crimeboss who controls most of Akkaban, a New Republic city on Kellip. Lillithon knew about the myth and started his search for the location of the old temples, where he hoped to find clues about how to use the disc.
He found out about Hellior4 after a while, but he couldn't find the clues he was looking for.
Then a New Republic agent working undercover at Lillithon's apartment, for the corrupt senator Saruth, found out about Lillithon's possession of the disc.
A strike force had successfully recovered the disc from Lillithon's apartment and burned the whole place to the ground.
While transporting the disc to Coruscant, they tried to keep it as low-profile as possible, so they wouldn't have to many problems with other curious Senators and Pirates. They failed, a Pirate called Hake Tah'Joohn boarded the ship and recovered the disc before they even reached hyperspace.
This is where the series start....
