Bastila joins your party when Brejik reneges after you win the swoop race on Taris.

Speaking to Bastila can unlock the quest for Bastila's Mother, once the first Star Map has been acquired on Dantooine, and you can receive experience (albeit only 250 XP) for completing this.

Acquiring a second Star Map unlocks further dialogs, which only help a female character better understand her but allow a male to romance her, although later dialogs cannot be unlocked if some earlier ones weren't completed before acquiring a third and fourth Star Map.

Any romance must be completed before acquiring a fourth Star Map and leaving that world.

Taris[edit]

After completing the Search for Bastila but before proceeding with Escaping Taris, Bastila will speak to you in your hideout:

KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Is… is something wrong? You seem as if something is troubling you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Forget it. It's nothing.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: As you wish. We should move on then. We won't get off Taris just sitting here.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Something weird happened when we first met. Like a vision.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
You experienced a powerful vision upon first meeting Bastila. The vision could be an indication that you have a strong connection with the Force, but Bastila was reluctant to speculate on such matters.

If you don't speak to her again before escaping Taris, you may be prompted to do so when she's in your party:

KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: [Bastila seems to have something on her mind. Perhaps you should talk to her about it.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. [Speak to Bastila.] KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. [Don't speak to her.]
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: How can I help? KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: [You decide to ignore Bastila and continue on with your quest for now, though you might want to speak with her later.]
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You want to talk to me about something?
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
Bastila has told you she sees signs that the Force is acting through you. However, she was reluctant to speculate further, feeling such matters are the providence of the Jedi Council.

This is as far as you can advance this quest before escaping Taris, although once you've done so these dialogs will be unavailable.

Dantooine[edit]

Once you've arrived on Dantooine, completed your Jedi trials and been ordered to investigate Ruins by the Jedi Council, Bastila joins your party again and, once you've talked about that (shared) dream or departed Dantooine, you can speak to her again:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. You look like something's bothering you.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
Because of the bond you and Bastila share, she is extremely interested in learning more about your character. However, you get the sense there is something she isn't telling you.

First Star Map[edit]

Acquiring the first Star Map on Dantooine automatically unlocks the following, once you've completed the previous dialog:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You have something you want to ask me?
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
Bastila seems to have taken the role of teacher upon herself, choosing to lecture you about the evils of the dark side. Understandable, considering the bond the two of you share.

If the two previous dialogs aren't completed before acquiring a third Star Map, further dialogs cannot be unlocked once it's acquired. Otherwise…

Level ups can unlock further dialogs once previous dialogs have been completed, but so can entering and exiting the Ebon Hawk and adding Bastila to your party (you may also be able to speak to her in the Cockpit inside, but it's quicker to just enter and exit before speaking outside).

First[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You wanted to speak to me?
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Yes, I did. I wanted to speak to you about our mission. About what lies ahead for us. It seems fate, or the Force, is driving us into a confrontation with the Dark Lord.

Alternatively, if you've completed both the previous dialogs but not spoken to her since, after acquiring a third Star Map she speaks to you when you return to the Cockpit of the Ebon Hawk:

KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: I know we have not spoken often during our time together, despite my best efforts. And to this point I have respected your privacy. But there is something we must discuss.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Fine. What is it? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Not now, Bastila. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I don't want to talk to you! Can't you take a hint?
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: No, this cannot wait any longer. You have no understanding of what we are going up against; I will not allow you to go in unprepared!
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
In order to prepare you for your meeting with Darth Malak, Bastila described her own encounter with the Sith Lord Revan. According to Bastila, the Jedi wanted to capture Revan alive but were foiled when Malak betrayed his own master.

Second[edit]

Completing the previous dialog automatically unlocks this one:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'd like to know more about you, Bastila.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
Bastila told you something of her life before the Jedi. She was very adamant in her support of the Jedi's policy of severing all familial relationships, as emotional attachments are inherently dangerous to a Jedi.

If the two previous dialogs aren't completed before acquiring a fourth Star Map, further dialogs cannot be unlocked once it's acquired.

Third[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You wish to talk to me?

Alternatively, if you've completed the two previous dialogs but not spoken to her since, after acquiring a fourth Star Map she speaks to you when you return to the Cockpit of the Ebon Hawk:

However, if Bastila speaks to you (not vice versa) then further dialogs cannot be unlocked.

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
Apparently Bastila is still playing the role of mentor. She has been studying your progress carefully, and had much to say about your actions and the perils of the dark side.

Once this dialog is complete, Malare can approach you while Bastila is in your party to talk about Bastila's Mother.

Fourth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Why did the Council send me with you on this mission?
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
You've asked Bastila why the Jedi Council sent the two of you – neither fully trained – on this dangerous mission. Based on her answer, Bastila either has blind faith in the Council or she simply prefers to avoid the question.

Second Star Map[edit]

Remaining dialogs can be unlocked after acquiring a second Star Map.

Fifth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You look like you have something to say.

If you give Bastila a hard time:

KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: I see. Is there nothing I can do to make it up to you? I would rather we were friends.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: I know my manner can be a bit taciturn. I know you must be getting sick of my lectures about the dark side and... and everything else.

Telling her to leave you alone completes this quest prematurely:

KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: What? But I... alright. Have it your way, if that's what you'd prefer. We needn't talk further.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
There is nothing more to talk about with Bastila, at least for the time being.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Well, that was not nearly so difficult as I feared. Thank you for hearing me out. I feel... I feel much better. But enough soul searching for now. We should probably continue on with our mission.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
Bastila has apologized to you for her earlier attitude, and has admitted how much she respects and admires you as a person and a Jedi. Whether this will change anything between you remains to be seen.

Sixth[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. You're curious about something?
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
Bastila is having doubts about her own abilities as a Jedi. Hopefully her uncertainty won't work against the mission… or lead her down the path of the dark side.

Seventh[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'd like to talk about what you said before. About giving in to your emotions.

After telling her you don't need her, this quest can be completed prematurely for a male character:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
There is nothing more to talk about with Bastila, at least for the time being.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: That's a kinder response than I deserve. And I can see there is wisdom in your words.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
Bastila's doubts about her own abilities continue to grow. She is actually afraid she may now be a detriment to your development as a Jedi.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
There is nothing more to talk about with Bastila, at least for the time being.

This completes this quest for a female character.

Eighth[edit]

Further dialog can be unlocked by a male character:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. When we last talked you said you needed time to think. So?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Sorry, Bastila. That starship won't fly. I'm not interested. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. But I don't feel anything for you, Bastila.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Oh, I thought... No, this is good. I'm glad you told me. This makes everything much easier. Don't worry - I can put this behind me. Let's just continue on with what we must do. It is better this way.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
There is nothing more to talk about with Bastila, at least for the time being.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
Bastila wants to talk to you… but in privacy, away from the others. Speak to her again when you have returned to the Ebon Hawk.

Kiss[edit]

If a male character unlocked and completed the last dialog but wasn't speaking to Bastila in the Ebon Hawk's Cockpit, you'll need to return there to speak to her again:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you have something you want to say to me, Bastila?
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Yes, I promised you an answer when we reached the Ebon Hawk, didn't I? But I'm afraid you won't like it. We should have some privacy for this.

She takes you to the empty Crew Quarters in the west wing of the Ebon Hawk:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I... I understand, Bastila. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. That's okay - I never felt anything for you anyway.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: I hope you can put this behind you. You need to focus on stopping Malak, as difficult as that may be. Come, we should continue our mission. KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Oh, I thought... No, this is good. I'm glad you told me. This makes everything much easier. Don't worry - I can put this behind me. Let's just continue on with what we must do. It is better this way.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
There is nothing more to talk about with Bastila, at least for the time being.

Otherwise, you kiss:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila
There's nothing more that needs to be said at the moment. Your relationship with Bastila is going to depend on the outcome of this mission, and perhaps once it is over with the two of you can look at what it is going to become. For now, however, the mission is more important… as is your destiny.

She returns to the cockpit. Do not talk to her again about what happened between you, or this ends your romance and later dialog options are not unlocked:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to talk to you about what happened between us.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: We've... we've already been over this. It was a moment of weakness, a stumble brought on by unbridled passions. But my emotions are firmly in check once more. We need to stay focused on stopping Darth Malak. And I want the others to stay focused as well. I don't want them to get suspicious and start gossiping about our little encounter! So, until our mission is over we need to act with discretion. We shouldn't speak of this anymore... not until Malak is defeated!

Otherwise, the kiss completes the romance with Bastila until a fifth Star Map has been acquired, and you've traveled to the summit of the Temple of the Ancients in the Star Forge System. It must be completed before acquiring a fourth Star Map and leaving that world.

Bastila's Mother[edit]

After acquiring the first Star Map on Dantooine, and unlocking and completing the Third dialog, if Bastila is in your party then Malare, a Twi'lek female, may approach and speak to you in one of the following locations:

Dantooine Tatooine Kashyyyk Manaan Korriban
Jedi Enclave Docking Bay Czerka Landing Port No No
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila's Mother
You encountered someone named Malare who told Bastila that her mother was looking for her. Bastila has asked that you look for her mother. Her name is Helena and Malare reported that she saw her last in the colony of Anchorhead on Tatooine.

Some experience (250 XP) is received for completing this quest. If you speak to Bastila at any time before encountering Bastila's Mother in the Anchorhead cantina on Tatooine:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Do you want to talk?
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Hmm? Sorry, I am just thinking about my mother. It is strange to hear news after all this time. It is quite distracting. Should we have the opportunity, I would like to find her on Tatooine. There is only one small colony there; it should not be difficult. It's not that I look forward to seeing her, I just can't help but wonder what she wants. But… perhaps we have better things to do.

However, once this quest is activated you cannot speak to Bastila about herself until it's been completed with mother and daughter parting on good terms, so if you want a male character to romance her then you might want to avoid activating it until that romance is complete (completing this quest is not necessary to complete the romance, although if you want to do so then it must also be completed before acquiring a fourth Star Map and leaving that world). If Bastila and her mother part on poor terms then this ends your romance, even if you've already kissed.

Banter[edit]

Bastila may speak to other party members as well when both are in your party:

Commentary[edit]

Even if you don't speak to Bastila directly she may comment during dialog when in your party, although unlocking this may also be conditional on others being added or removed, among other things:
