The party is freed from incarceration by Kell, who is also infiltrating the mine with the objective of taking out the command center to bring down the base’s defenses and allow the Razor to come in and support an all out rescue operation. Joining forces, the team strikes at the heart of the command center, and after being briefly separated in the fighting, they come upon Kell retreating through a corridor while deflecting blaster bolts with a lightsaber. During the escape of the underground mine complex, the party has a showdown with Kaox Krul, his Echani lieutenant, and a squad of pirate commandos. Though victorious, Kaox escapes amidst the hectic fighting. The adventure in the mines concludes with a running blaster battle out of the complex while covering the flight of the freed miners up the boarding ramp of a hovering Razor. On the return voyage to the Aduba system, an elderly Zabrak woman reveals to Oon that her name and family history may be other than she has believed for her entire life. Also, Kell confines the party to quarters after having learned during all the fighting that Joh-Kel is Jedi. He now also suspects the party is more than they seem. Kell also carries with him some recovered data cards that seem to indicate Vox is selling out routes of the escort missions to space pirates, but he doesn’t call it in because Vox commands the base while Kilbourne is on a mission, the last anyone knew.
