The view from the middle of the west wall of the Tatooine docking bay

Ebon Hawk[edit]

Upon exiting the Ebon Hawk for the first time, a customs officer approaches and speaks to you about a docking fee:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: Welcome to Anchorhead, potential customer. Czerka Corporation stands ready to serve, after some formalities, of course. First, your ship is not on our list of planned arrivals for today. There is a docking fee of 100 credits because of this.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do I get for my 100 credits?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: The immediate benefit is access to these very docking facilities. This is the only port in Anchorhead. Once you've paid we will offer trade services as well. We're not unreasonable, we just want to cover expenses.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What if I don't have the money?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: That would be unfortunate. Czerka Corporation can't afford to extend credit. Everyone pays. That's the rule.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. What if I say no?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: Czerka Corporation maintains this docking station at great expense. It is within our rights to refuse landing permission. And I warn you, we've had troublemakers before. The bay is lined with autoguns. Violence is not a survivable option.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I just want information about the planet.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: I'm sorry. While Czerka Corporation would like to encourage interest in Tatooine, we must first deal with the docking fees. Our operations here are very expensive. We must recoup basic costs somehow.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 7. I can't pay the fee right now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: Then I'm afraid you won't be visiting Anchorhead. Czerka Corporation hopes you will be a customer in the future. Guards! This ship is refused access. See that they don't disembark.

[You have no choice but to return to your ship.]

You can simply pay:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: Hello again. Czerka Corporation remains willing to serve, but there is still the matter of the 100 credits docking fee…
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Fine, fine, I'll pay.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: I thought you would. Without these fees, Czerka Corporation would have closed this port years ago.
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Lost: 100

Otherwise, it's easy to persuade him to waive the fee using your own skill or the Force:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Is there any way you could reconsider the fee?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: I assure you that the fee is non-negotiable. We have a very thin margin of profit on this world.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Let's go back to my other questions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: As you wish. Let's wrap this up as soon as possible.
Easy 2. [Persuade] The money I save I'll spend in your stores.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: [Success] That does make sense. I suppose I could let it go this time. We need the business. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: No, no, no. I'm sorry but we have to charge something. Maintenance is expensive out here.
Low (Affect Mind) 1. [Force Persuade] I don't need to pay the fee.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: [Success] You know… I don't think you need to pay the fee. We'll let it go, this time.
KotOR Icon Jolee.png Jolee: *whisper* Heh! Reminds me of my old smuggling days. Nothing better than the old Jedi mind trick for getting past an overly curious customs officer. KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: *whisper* Well, that was easy. I sure wish I had special mind-affecting Force powers. KotOR Icon Canderous.png Canderous: *whisper* I'm amazed at how many people that works on. The entire galaxy must be filled with weak-minded fools.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: This will cover any future landings as well. It's like a registration, so we can serve you better when you return. Now, as a customs officer, I can provide information on services. Is this visit business or pleasure?

The following responses now or in the future will end the dialog:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. I'm done with you. Stay out of my business, or else! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Actually, I really need to get going.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: There is no need for that. I'm just doing my job. You are free to move as you wish. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: As you wish. If you need anything else, I'll be here.

You can continue the dialog to ask questions about Tatooine. Otherwise, he remains standing to the right of the Ebon Hawk's boarding ramp so you can stop and resume at any time:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: Welcome back. Is there something I can do for you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Give me some background on Tatooine.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: There isn't much to tell. It's a very old planet, well past its prime. Czerka Corporation is the only company with any interest in it. It's not a very pretty world, but there is opportunity here if you know where to look.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What is known about the history of the planet?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: Very little. There are hints that it might once have been a lush world, but I can't picture it as anything but a desert. Native sentient species have no records going back that far. That was hundreds of years ago. Maybe thousands. Of course, the native species are not very willing to tell anyone anything. They're barely more than animals.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What species do you mean? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What species was giving you trouble?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: The Sand People. They're vicious, and attack outsiders on sight. More animal than anything, really. Maybe they know the history of Tatooine, maybe they don't. Impossible to tell. They won't cooperate.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Have you had trouble with the Sand People?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: Not personally, but they've given Czerka Corporation a rough time. It's hard enough mining this rock without suffering random attacks. I think the company has even put a bounty on them, but I'm sure not going to try for it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Any other sentient races?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: The Jawas are scavengers and a bit primitive. Hard to understand. They have an affinity for Droids. Some of our scientists believe that they may not be native to the planet, but how they got here they may not even know. As I said, they're hard to understand. They usually end up slaves to the Sand People. They aren't fighters. Good traders, though.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What about the city of Anchorhead? How old is it?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: The site is quite old. From the look of it, it's been settled before. Czerka Corporation claimed it only a few decades ago.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What was here before?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: Some other corporation that went under, probably. Not a lot of records are kept about backwater places like this.

It's easy to persuade him to tell you about Czerka Corporation using skill or the Force:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Tell me about Czerka Corporation's operations here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: I can't really get into that. It hasn't been a very smooth operation. I shouldn't get into it.
Easy 1. [Persuade] Come now friend, let me in on the details.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: [Success] Ah, it's common knowledge, so there's no harm in telling you. It's a tale of bad business. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: [Failure] I'm sorry. It's not really a big secret, but my superiors don't like people talking about it.
Low (Affect Mind) 2. [Force Persuade] You want to tell me more.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: [Success] I… I can tell you more, I guess. It's not a big secret or anything. Just not good business.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: You see, Czerka Corporation staked their claim to this planet based on some very promising geological surveys. Unfortunately, that information was incorrect, and possibly even an attempt at sabotage by a rival company.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. So Czerka Corporation set up shop on a barren planet.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: Not totally barren. There were a few years of good mining, and limited operations are still in place. But the ore is flawed. It has peculiar properties. They've had to look at other forms of business.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you mean when you say the ore is "peculiar"?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: Czerka Corporation has really tried to hide this, but it just seems that Tatooine metal is unfit for effective manufacturing. I would imagine that this outpost will eventually be abandoned. Nobody is making any money here. Of course, this rock may have been settled a few times, so look for some other company to get stuck with it.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What other forms of business are being looked at here?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: Pursuits that appeal to the casual traveller. There are some fearsome native species that provide exciting hunting. There are also lengthy barren wastes that serve as fine swoop tracks. Attracting business has been slow, however.

You can also ask about job opportunities on a number of occasions, and about the Star Map, either obliquely or directly:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'll need good paying work. What is there to do? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Where should a person look for opportunity? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Where can I get information about jobs like that?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: It depends on what level of risk you want to take. You could ask at the Czerka office if any bounties need collecting. That's in central Anchorhead. While you're at the office, ask for a hunting license so you can sell trophies to Fazza in his lodge just north of them. I suppose you could also take up swoop racing. Talk to the Hutt at the registration office by the track. That's in west Anchorhead. I can't say I know which of these jobs is the most dangerous. I stay away from all of them.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm looking for very specific things. Who should I ask?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: That's not much information. Could you tell me more?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No, I'm sorry.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: Then you're on your own. Ask around Anchorhead. Someone may be able to help you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm looking for older things. Antiques. Artifacts. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I'm looking for a Star Map. Very old. Very complex.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: You a digger? I've heard of ruins being found now and then, but they've always been stripped by Sand People soon after. You're not going to get anywhere with them. I guess you could ask around, but I doubt you'll learn anything different. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: A Star Map? That's old holo-tech, isn't it? Not much reason to outfit this dry rock with tech like that. You could ask around, but for something like that you'll probably have to go digging. I wouldn't know where to begin.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: You could always ask a Jawa. It's hard to tell what they know.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. Let's go back to my other questions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Customs Officer: I will answer as best I can. What will you need while on Tatooine?

The docking bay is lined with autoguns, with an ion defense turret by both the east and west walls and a heavy blaster turret by the south wall. One docking bay guard patrols from east to west between the Ebon Hawk and the south wall, while another patrols clockwise around the docking bay:

Docking Bay Guard
Czerka Corporation has too much invested here to take chances with safety.
We'll watch your ship like any other. The bay is safe.
I've got orders to kill trouble makers. Keep walking.
There some reason you don't move along?
Move along.
You a swoop racer? Dead in a week, I bet.
We don't get much trouble. People die in the desert, not here.
The landing bay is lined with autoguns. To keep it safe. Understand?

A footlocker with random contents can be found by the middle of the east and west walls. On the south wall on the shelf behind Mic'Tunann'Jus Orgu there is also a pouch with random contents.

Trouble With Gizka[edit]

Exit[edit]

As you approach the exit to Anchorhead is in the south wall in the southeast corner of the docking bay, you may encounter a messenger for a party member if unlocked by dialog:

Bastila Canderous Carth Jolee Juhani Mission
Malare No Jordo Davin Kotras Xor No

The docking bay mechanic stands to the left:

Docking Bay Mechanic
Tatooine's a dustbowl, and that's all it'll ever be.
Czerka Corporation keeps me working. Don't care what else they do.
You here to hunt wraid? I work a wrench. Boring, but I know it won't kill me.
You a swoop racer? Crazy fool.
Business is up a little, so leave me to my work.
Some ships I fix, some I scrap. Depends if the owner disappears in the dunes.
Why are you bothering me? You've got a ship. You can leave this rock.
Leave me be. If I don't get these converters working, I lose my job.

Jor Ul Kurax, an Aqualish dockworker, stands to the right of the exit, and speaks to you as you approach:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jor Ul Kurax: Hello there, captain. Let's see… ah, yes. Here it is. It looks like the shipment has been delivered to your ship, as requested.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What shipment? What are you talking about? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Err… what shipment was that again? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Excellent. Thank you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jor Ul Kurax: This is docking bay 32, isn't it? Yes, it is, and that's what I have here on the requisition form. Everything seems to be in order. The gizka are your problem now. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jor Ul Kurax: Well, let me see. Docking bay 32, check… crate 42-B7, check… manifest lists "life form: gizka". Everything seems to be in order. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jor Ul Kurax: Wait a second, is this right? It says docking bay 32 on the form, but you just arrived. Oh, well, the gizka are your problem now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Excuse me, did you say "gizka"? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What do you mean "my problem"? I didn't order any gizka. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Fair enough. Thanks. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Whatever you put on my ship, I want it off. Now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jor Ul Kurax: It says right here on the manifest that you ordered a crate of gizka. To be delivered to docking bay 32… that's right here. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jor Ul Kurax: If you want the cargo removed, you'll have to fill out another requisition. I have one right… wait. I thought I had one. Oh, well.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jor Ul Kurax: Now, all I need is your thumbprint for the… wait a second, where did the datapad go? *sigh* Nothing is ever organized around here.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Jor Ul Kurax: At any rate, the gizka are yours. One of the loaders said the crate split open once he put it in your hold… some of the critters might have gotten loose. That happens, I'm afraid. We don't accept liability… and we certainly couldn't take the cargo back. Enjoy.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: The Trouble With Gizka
The fates seem to be conspiring against you. The disorganized port authorities on Tatooine appear to have shipped a delivery of gizka to the Ebon Hawk's hold… and there doesn't appear to be any way to give them back! The dockworker mentioned that some of the gizka "escaped", which certainly doesn't sound good…

Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu[edit]

A two-headed alien merchant called Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu has set up shop in the shade of the south wall of the docking bay, to the right of the exit. If you saw Ja'Gatcha in the tap room of Javyar's cantina on Taris you may recognize the type, and if you spoke to them you'll already be able to identify them as Paaerduag from Sorjus:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: Who that? Turn it, you gunda fasca, customers are talking! That's better. Hello customer! Buy from Mic'Tunan'Jus and save your credits!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: And don't be shy. Just ask to see what you want. If you can't get a good look, we don't move the merchandise. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: Very important to save these days, Thuursa knows it's true. Kolto prices make healing expensive, but you can't go without, we're sure. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: Yes, save, because you never know when situations turn all around. Look at Czerka. We hear... well, things are not well on outpost Kashyyyk, we're sure you know.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Just show me what you have for sale.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: Yes, of course. We don't want to keep you from your important business. Please, have a look.

You can also ask questions about themselves, Tatooine and any off-world rumors:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: Turn it around, fassa to gammenda! The customers come back and we need to see them good! There you are, back to save your credits.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: And like we were saying, we don't sell anything if you don't ask for it, so step up and see what Mic'Tunan'Jus can both do for you. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: Yes, save, because you never know when hardship will come. The galaxy is dangerous, we say, even before we hear of Sith trouble on Korriban. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: You will want to save your money for your swoop, we would bet. Yes, you have the champion's face. we'll have what you need.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I want to ask you a few questions. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Let's go back to my other questions.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: We are here to serve. What do you need to know?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to ask about you.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: Mic'Tunan'Jus is just a humble merchant from the Rim. What would you wish to know about we? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: Again you ask, but we have not changed. Just an honest merchant from the Rim.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Where do you come from?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: You couldn't say it, and don't have the ears for it. Two voices create the name, and four ears hear the true sound. We suppose the trade lanes have had to call us something. With one mouth the world is Sorjus, far off the Perlemian trade route. It's an unimportant stop, we admit. We left for a life of trade, because we are strong and a good talker. We have done well.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Are you one creature or two?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: You are pardoned for asking because you only know one mind… or at least only one at a time. We are one now, but weren't always. We grow together, bonded from the age of choosing when we become whole. Not like you. You are half of what you should be, like brood-squeeler. Er, not that we would want to offend you. We don't want to lose any business. That is just our way as Paaerduag.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Your other half doesn't say much.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: Just because *you* can't hear it, doesn't mean it isn't there.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Do you know anything about Tatooine?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: Not as much as we should. If we knew more, we would have better business. Travelers like us best. Settlers don't have much to trade. We don't travel far on Tatooine itself, you see. The weather is not like our home. Too dry. Way to dry. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: We have not moved since you last asked. The Tatooine dust is rough on our hide, and the sun is much harsher than it needs to be.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Who would I ask to get more information?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: Always trust the locals, even if they don't trust you. They are the ones that really know what's going on. That's true on any world.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Heard any off-world rumors?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: Just what everyone else talks about: Taris and the Sith and the stirring of change. Could be good for business, could be bad for business. All that we know is that wise people keep low and stay out of the way. Something to always remind your other half. Er… if you have one.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I have to go now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu: We wait for your return. Anyone with credits is always welcome.
