STAR WARS: THE HUNTED
Planet Varoz V
This planet sits on the very edge of the Outer Rim. It was colonized during the great expansion nearly 5000 years ago.

One powerful and advanced technological device was used for purpose of harvesting rare crystals that only grew in the bright sunlight of the system star Varoz. Due to the rarity of these crystals and the limited time they had to grow, a plan was developed to create a constant source of light.

It was supposed to be a simple diplomatic mission. Gain the trust of the ruling council and offer them support and protection if the Separatist were to become violent.
