Map of the Black Vulkar base

Inside the Vulkar Base[edit]

Journal Entry Added Inside the Vulkar Base
You're inside the Vulkar base, but you still have to locate the prototype accelerator. It's probably stored somewhere off the main level, under heavy guard.
Inside Vulkar's Base - No Commentary Light (31:12)

Sewers[edit]

The elevator from the Upper Sewers takes you to the north end of a room in the northeast corner of the Black Vulkar base: you need to return to the sewers if you want to return to hideout or change party selection.

Beyond the south standard door is the east end of a corridor which turns north around a corner to the west. It's patrolled by a Vulkar patrol droid, which may not be visible if it's turned the corner:

The droid is actively engaged in its patrol route. You cannot reprogram it anymore.

It uses weak melee attacks and only patrols between its starting point and the west end of the corridor, returning before it even reaches the corner, so repairing it is of limited use except for receiving experience.

There are more supplies to the right of the entrance to the room beyond the left door in the north wall of the corridor, but this entrance is mined:

Beyond the left door in the south wall (opposite the elevator) is another corridor to the south around the perimeter of the Rec Room, which turns west into the Armory and is patrolled by another Vulkar patrol droid.

Experience Points (XP) Received:

Garage Security[edit]

Go down the corridor to the west and around the corner to the north and you'll see a standard door in the west wall at its north end: do not open it yet, as beyond is the security system guarding the Garage Elevator. There's a security panel to the left of this door:

Dialog

Security Panel: [FAILURE] SPIKES REJECTED

2. Leave computer

You now know you can disarm the turrets using the main terminal opposite the Armory door, or a pass card (carried by two Vulkar lieutenants in the Barracks).

Journal Entry Added Inside the Vulkar Base
You've successfully shut down the thermal security system protecting the elevator to the garage level of the Vulkar Base. Now all you have to do is go down there and find the prototype accelerator… and deal with any angry Vulkars you might meet along the way.

You receive experience for using the main terminal but none for using the passcard (aside from that received for killing the Vulkar lieutenants and their guards). However, it's possible to receive much more by destroying the turrets with Grenades. Enter Solo mode and open the door, then run back across the corridor to the opposite wall. You can now see three defense turrets at the west end of the room beyond, but you should be out of range.

They have On Hit: Instant Death, DC 100 and you cannot attack them without being within range of their hits. However, you can throw grenades at them from beyond their range, and those thrown at the center turret will hit all three. Ion Grenades are ideal, and it will take 2-4 (most likely 3) to kill them: two can be found in a metal box in the armory, while the Equipment Emporium in the Upper City sells from an infinite supply for 130 credits each.

Experience Points (XP) Received:

Garage Elevator[edit]

After dealing with the turrets in garage security, open the garage elevator in the north wall and go down to the garage. Once again you won't be able to return to hideout or change party selection, so return to the Sewers or Lower City if need be.

Control Room[edit]

This isn't necessary, although on your very first playthrough it does inform you where to find a pass card, and it gives you an opportunity to move closer to the dark side of the Force. The control room is behind a security door in the south wall of the corridor leading west out of the Armory chamber.

The door can also be unlocked by using the main terminal against the north wall opposite the armory itself, for which you receive experience. Inside is a Twi'lek male Black Vulkar:

He surrenders after being hit, allowing you to question him:

Dialog
Black Vulkar: I surrender! I surrender! Please, don't kill me. I'm not like these others. I'm not like Brejik and his new Vulkars!
1. What are you talking about? You're a Vulkar, aren't you?
Black Vulkar: I'm a Vulkar, but I was here long before Brejik took over. I was a Vulkar back when it meant something. Back when we had honor. Then Brejik and his followers took over and turned our gang into a bunch of violent thugs and bloodthirsty punks. Now they treat all us original Vulkars like second class citizens. Take me, for example. I used to be one of the highest ranking Vulkars in the gang. Now I'm stuck on guard duty here in the back, all thanks to Brejik!
1. If you hate Brejik so much, why don’t you leave the gang?
Black Vulkar: I've been trying to work up the courage to leave, but it's not that easy. Brejik's followers will try to hunt down anyone who leaves the Vulkar gang. He says he won't let traitors live. Ha! Brejik and his followers are the real traitors. They turned on Gadon and now they slaughter the Beks in the streets… and anyone else they happen to run across. Brejik knows anyone with character will never willingly follow a leader like him, so he uses brutality and violence to stay in power.
2. You better give me some information if you want to live. 2. I want to ask you something else.
Black Vulkar: Yeah, sure. Whatever you want to know. It's not like I owe that scum lord Brejik anything.
2. Where can I find the prototype swoop engine accelerator?
Black Vulkar: Right – that gadget Brejik stole from the Beks. He's got the accelerator in the basement garage. The only way down is by using the security elevator in the back of the base. But the security elevator is protected by auto-targeting laser cannons. You'll be vaporized before you ever get near it, unless you get your hands on a pass card.
1. Where can I get a pass card?
Black Vulkar: If I had one myself, I'd give it to you. But Brejik only gives them to his lieutenants. You'd have to get a pass card from one of them, but I doubt they'd just hand it over to you.
2. Is there some way to disable the security cannons?
Black Vulkar: I guess it might be possible to slice into the main computer bank near the front of the base and override the security system, but I sure wouldn't be able to do it.
3. I'm looking for a prisoner. A woman named Bastila.
Black Vulkar: Yeah, right. You think Brejik would leave a trophy like that in here with this scum? He's got her stashed away somewhere safe, I'd guess. Somewhere outside this base.
Journal Entry Added Inside the Vulkar Base
The prototype accelerator is stored in the basement, but the only way down is through a security elevator in the back of the Vulkar base. You’ll need a pass card to use the elevator, unless you can disable the security cannons protecting it.
3. I'm going to let you live. Go on, get out of here!
Black Vulkar: Thanks. Thanks a lot. And don't worry, I won't cause any trouble for you on the way out. In fact, I hope you take Brejik and his Vulkars down!

Otherwise:

Dark Side Points Gained: -4
2. Sorry – I only fight to the death!
Dark Side Points Gained: -4
4. Sorry, but it’s too risky to let you live.
Black Vulkar: Well I'm not just going to roll over and let you kill me!
Experience Points (XP) Received:

If you don't enter the control room before completing the search for Bastila, he won't be here if you return. There's also a footlocker in the southeast corner with random contents.

Armory[edit]

The Armory is the hub of the Black Vulkar base. The most direct route to it is through the right door in the south wall of the first corridor, into the kitchen of the Rec Room then through its west door, although it's better to go through the left door in the south wall of the corridor and go down the corridor to the south and west until you emerge into the armory chamber.

The armory itself is in the middle of this chamber, and a Black Vulkar patrols clockwise around it.

The door to the armory is in its north wall, flanked by a Vulkar sentry droid on each side, identical in all but name to the Vulkar patrol droids you should already have encountered.

Droids flank the armory door, while the patrolling Black Vulkar can be seen between them and the west corridor leading past the control room and barrack doors to the right. The Black Vulkar patrolling the south corridor exiting to the Lower City can be seen in the distance to the left.
Experience Points (XP) Received:

As you'd expect, the door is locked: aside from bashing it open or using Security, it can also be unlocked by using the main terminal opposite against the north wall, for which you receive experience. Inside you'll find a metal box to the left, and footlockers to the right and center.

All doors on this level of the Black Vulkar base are unlocked and opened if you open all security doors. Overloading the power conduit in the Barracks kills both Vulkar lieutenants and all but one of six Black Vulkars, making it much easier to get the pass card needed to disarm the turrets guarding the garage elevator. Shutting down the garage elevator security system instead gives you experience, but not as much as killing the turrets yourself with Grenades.

Otherwise, uploading area schematics may seem like a good idea on your first play-through, but accessing security cameras will reveal points of interest on the map without costing Computer Spikes. Overloading the terminal is not recommended, as it results in 1000 electrical damage to everyone in the vicinity.

Rec Room[edit]

The middle door in the south wall of the first corridor opens onto a bar. A Vulkar bartender stands to the left, while a bouncer droid stands in each of the northwest and southwest corners:

A standard door at the south end of the bar opens onto the corridor around the southeast perimeter of the rec rooms, while one in the west wall opens into a dining area containing another bouncer droid identical to those found in the bar, except it has Awareness 102.

Experience Points (XP) Received:

This area also contains a footlocker by the west wall with random contents, and a waitress who can be questioned (although she'll be gone if you return after completing the search for Bastila):

Dialog
Waitress: Please, don't hurt me – I just serve the food here, that's all! I'm not like these others – I'm not even a Black Vulkar. Please don't kill me!
1. How did you end up here in the Vulkar base?
Waitress: My name is Ada. My father owed Davik some money, but he couldn't pay. Davik killed my father and sold me into slavery here at the Vulkar compound to pay off the debt.
2. Don't worry, I just want to ask you a few questions. 2. Answer my questions and I'll let you go. 3. You better give me some information if you want to live.
Waitress: But I don't know anything! I'm just a prisoner here - a slave! The Vulkars don't tell me anything, they treat me like dirt, they beat me if I screw up their orders.
Carth: You may know more than you think, miss. Help us and we'll help you, okay?
Waitress: Well… alright. I still don't know how much help I can be. But I sure hope you get rid of all the Vulkars. I hate them!
1. Where can I find the prototype swoop engine accelerator?
Waitress: What? I… I've never heard of such a thing. I guess it might be in the garage on the lower level – that's where all the Vulkars go to work on their swoop bikes. But I've never been down there. The elevator is protected by a security system – only the Vulkars are allowed to go down there.
2. I'm looking for a prisoner. A woman named Bastila.
Waitress: Is she that Republic soldier? I heard one of those Vulkar mention her, but she's not here. He said Brejik didn't trust his men around her. I guess she's too important to be a slave here in the kitchens, getting pawed and groped and kicked and spit on like me. Brejik must have take her somewhere safe.

Once you've asked any questions you want answered, you'll move closer to the light or dark side of the Force depending on how you end the dialog:

3. If I let you go can you find your way out of here?
Waitress: Now that you've killed the guards who were supposed to watch me I think I could find my way out of here.
Dark Side Points Gained: -2
4. Leaving you alive is too risky. Sorry, sister… looks like your order is up!
Light Side Points Gained: +2
1. Hurry, then – get out of here.
Waitress: No – I won't go out like this! Not after all I've been through! I won't just let you kill me without a fight! Carth: No, no wait. This girl is no threat to us. Just run along, miss, and get out of here. And do it quickly before the Vulkars come back.
Waitress: I… I'm free to go? You're not going to kill me? I… I don't know how I can ever repay you. Thank you! Thank you! I… I have to get out of here before any of the Vulkars see me.

If you attack her then she's unarmed and unarmored, so she can't put up much of a fight.

Experience Points (XP) Received:

This dining area also has a standard door in its south wall which opens onto the corridor around the southeast perimeter of the rec room, and another in its north wall which opens into a kitchen containing a Vulkar cook who's identical to the Vulkar bartender in the bar.

Experience Points (XP) Received:

This kitchen has a standard door in its west wall which opens onto the northeast corner of the Armory chamber, and another in its north wall which opens onto the first corridor along the north perimeter of the rec room (the right door in the south wall of this corridor).

Barracks[edit]

The barracks is a large L-shaped room with two entrances, on the south side of the corridor exiting the Armory chamber to the west. Its south entrance is a standard door to the right of the security door of the Control Room, just before the corridor turns north; its north entrance is another standard door around the corner to the north and west at the end of the corridor, opposite that to the {Poolin the north wall.

Before opening either door, prepare for a fight because there are two Vulkar lieutenants guarded by six Black Vulkars within: three arm themselves with a Vibroblade, two with a Quarterstaff and one with a Blaster Pistol.

All but the two Vulkar lieutenants and one Black Vulkar start with melee weapons, and if your party surprises them at the north entrance there is sufficient distance to allow ranged weapons and Grenades to be used to kill them before they can reach you. If you're playing without a party or favor melee weapons then the south entrance may be preferable, since they're closer to it, some are blocked from sight around the corner to the west and the room is narrower at this entrance.

However, it’s much easier to use the main terminal opposite the Armory to overload the power conduit at the inside corner of the barracks, since this kills all but the Black Vulkar armed with a Blaster Pistol.

This is a pass card used to grant access at security terminals.

You now have the pass card needed to disarm the turrets in Garage Security. Against the west wall are supplies to the left, and a footlocker with random contents on the right.

Pool[edit]

At the end of the corridor exiting the Armory chamber to the west is a standard door in the north wall opposite the north entrance to the Barracks, which opens onto a room containing an empty pool. A deactivated pool droid stands just inside the entrance, at the shallow end of the pool:

Dialog

Pool Droid: [Success] The droid moves off to carry out the instructions you programmed into it. Pool Droid: [Failure] You do not have enough repair parts.

If you program the droid to crawl into the pool and self-destruct, it reveals that the pool is mined, and triggers them.

Awareness Deadly Gas Mine (3) Detect 40 (20) Demolitions Disable 30 (10) Recover 40 (20)

Unless you've exploited the respawning Rakghouls in the Undercity and Lower Sewers to gain experience and levels, you won't be able to detect these mines, let alone disable or recover them. However, since you receive no experience for repairing the droid and even a single Parts pack costs just over four times as much as a simple Antidote Kit, it's best to enter Solo mode and have one party member trigger the mines before using a kit to neutralize the poison.

This is worth doing to get to the footlocker in the northeast corner of the pool.

Item(s) Received Footlocker

Lower City[edit]

The main entrance hall for the Black Vulkar base leads off to the south of the Armory, and it's patrolled by a Black Vulkar:

At its south end is the entrance from the Lower City. If you retrieved the prototype swoop accelerator for the Hidden Beks, this is the quickest route back to their base. You can also exit to return to hideout or change party selection, but in either case be aware that you'll be attacked by two Vulkar guards outside unless you killed them earlier while in the Lower City.
