A/N: This is a bit of an experiment in novelising Star Wars: The Old Republic II - The Sith Lords. This story will stick as close to canon as possible but it isn't a direct adaptation of the game. All the characters, settings and situations will be there, though won't necessary hew closely to the gameplay. For instance: the Handmaiden is coming along on this trip, even if she didn't if the player character was female in the game. Parts will be expanded, others will be dropped. Anyway! Please read, please review and please enjoy. A brave little droid is aboard a damaged freighter somewhere in the depths of interstellar space...
