Taral V is a mid game Republic Flashpoint designed for four players.


Hidden deep within a dangerous region of space, an Imperial prison houses a legendary Jedi Master. Long before the Sith Empire’s return from exile, this Jedi traveled to the farthest reaches of the galaxy to confront the Emperor himself. But the Jedi was defeated, and held in stasis as the Emperor attempted to purge information from the Jedi's mind.

For ages this Jedi was thought to have been dead, but now a Force ghost has revealed that not only does the long-lost Jedi live, but he is being held prisoner within the treacherous Maelstrom Nebula. Armed with this knowledge, Jedi Master Oteg assembles a group of the Republic’s most elite heroes and sends them to the Imperial world of Taral V. There they will battle against the legions of Imperial soldiers, as well as deadly creatures, as they steal Imperial star charts that will lead them straight to the hidden prison.

Taral V is available to Republic players, and is designed to be experienced around level 33.


Imperial forces are holding an important Jedi prisoner who is critical to the Republic war effort. A Republic team of up to four players must travel deep into enemy territory to recover the key to liberating the Republic prisoner.

The story begins with an introduction from Jedi Master Oteg, a Yoda-species Jedi Master. He asks that the players maintain an open mind, since the source of his information is unconventional and unusual. Master Oteg then helps the team to see a Force Ghost of a dead Jedi, who says:

"The Darkness will consume all it touches. Stars will burn black, ashes raining on lifeless worlds. Everything ends. The prisoner holds the darkness at bay, lost inside it for three hundred years. His strength will fail, and then he will become the darkness."

Master Oteg reveals that the Force Ghost has helped him to learn of the existence of an Imperial prison in the Maelstrom Nebula, as well as a way to get there. The only way to navigate through the constantly changing maelstrom is using a Gree computer that is held in an Imperial Fortress. The first half of the flashpoint involes storming this fortress to obtain the computer in order to free the Jedi Prisoner.

The fortress is on Taral V, which is guarded by a large number of Imperial warships. Master Oteg reveals that he has a captured Imperial ship that the team can use to sneak past the warships into enemy lines. The Republic fleet holds at the system's edge to monitor the team's progress.
