Just off the junction of the Hydian Way and the Mandalorian Road, the Taris medical research station hangs peacefully above its namesake. While terror and confusion rocks the galaxy, the relatively unimportant station, officially focused mainly on studying the Rakghoul plague, is seemingly undisturbed, business continuing on as usual under the keen eye of Dr. Natasi Finos, one of the premier biochemical experts in the galaxy.
This scene of serenity is disturbed by the approach of a heavily modified Pathfinder-class corvette from the edge of the system. As its intended path becomes clear, station control sends out a hail to it, receiving a request to dock in return, along with the codes authorizing their request. A quick message is sent to Dr. Finos, shortly followed by orders to let them through.
