The Black Talon is an early-game Imperial Flashpoint. (The Republic opposite to this is The Esseles)


On the edge of the Empire's borders, a small skirmish has taken place between Imperial cruisers and Republic forces. During the battle, a Republic warship carrying an Imperial defector slipped away and is now on a direct course for Republic space. The Empire refuses to risk letting valuable military secrets fall into enemy hands.

But the Captain of the Black Talon has refused the order, and now Imperial command has turned a group of loyal imperials who have procured transport on the ship. Their orders: take control of the Black Talon from the rebellious Captain, hunt down the damaged Republic warship and recapture the defector.

The Black Talon is available to Imperial players, and is designed to be experienced around level 10.


When the group first comes aboard the Black Talon, they will be directed to talk to Lieutenant Sylas. After talking to Sylas, the group will be directed to talk to the protocol droid NR-O2 who patches the group through to Imperial Grand Moff Kilren. Kilren wants a defector aboard the Republic Thranta-class warship Brentaal Star and tasks Captain Revinal Orzik to intercept it. The captain disobeys that order and Kilren and tasks the group to seize control of the ship.

This is the first boss and will be encountered if the group kills Captain Orzik.

1b. Sergeant Boran

This is the alternative first boss consisting of Sergeant Boran, Corporal Hattak, Private "Crosshairs" Keemos, and S1-M0 "Doc Simon". The Republic Boarding Party will be encountered if the group spares Captain Orzik's life.

2. Commander Ghulil

This is the second boss.

3. GXR-7 Command Droid (Optional Boss)

This is an optional boss within the Black Talon.

4. Yadira Ban

This is the final boss within the Black Talon.
