Before leaving the planet on which you acquired your fourth Star Map, make sure you, Carth, Bastila and perhaps at least one of T3-M4, HK-47, Canderous or Juhani are properly equipped, then save game. After leaving, and entering hyperspace:

KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: What happened? What's going on?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Sith Interdictor ship. They must have been waiting for us on the hyperspace route. We're caught in their tractor beam.
KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Do you recognize the ship?
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: It's the Leviathan. Saul Karath's vessel. My old mentor.

The crew gather at the hub of the Ebon Hawk to consider your options:

Since you, Bastila and Carth will be watched too closely to escape and Zaalbar will be too conspicuous, one of your remaining party members must be chosen to do so:

Mission or Jolee will be stripped of their equipment and taken to the Cell Block, where they'll rely on guile and the Force respectively to escape; T3-M4 or HK-47 will be taken to Droid Maintenance, where they can repair a decommissioned droid to assist if need be; Canderous will be taken to Medical or Juhani will use her Force Camouflage to remain undetected by the Elevator, and both should favor a more forcible approach.

Until you, Bastila and Carth have been freed from your cells, your inventory will be empty of all items it previously contained, so whoever is chosen will have to rely on any remaining equipment, and items that can be acquired in the prison block. Once the choice is made:

KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Hold on! They're dragging us into the docking bridge!

The Sith commander and his troopers deal with the rest of the crew while you, Bastila and Carth are held in energy cages and interrogated by Admiral Saul Karath himself:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Saul Karath: I tire of these games - now I want answers! On what planet is the Jedi Academy at which you were trained?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Saul Karath: Now... tell me your mission. How were the Jedi planning on using you to stop Lord Malak and our Sith armada?

If you don't resist, he asks a third and final question:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Saul Karath: Tell me, how did you find out about the Star Forge?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Saul Karath: I will leave you here in your cell with a small taste of the horrors you will suffer when Lord Malak arrives.

His guards continue to torture you, even after you pass out. When you regain consciousness, Bastila and Carth have already done so:

KotOR Icon Bastila.png Bastila: Did you feel that? A disturbance in the Force. The Admiral has sent his message, the Dark Lord knows we are here now. Malak is coming.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, then we better hope Mission busts us out of here before he arrives. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, then we better hope T3-M4 busts us out of here before he arrives. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, then we better hope Jolee busts us out of here before he arrives.
KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, then we better hope Canderous busts us out of here before he arrives. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, then we better hope Juhani busts us out of here before he arrives. KotOR Icon Carth.png Carth: Well, then we better hope HK-47 busts us out of here before he arrives.

Save game at the first opportunity so you don't have to go through all that again. Regardless of who is chosen to escape, a Sith passcard must be retrieved from the Barracks or the Brig Terminal must be used before the door to the Detention area at the west end of the prison block can be unlocked, allowing the rest of the crew to be freed from their cells.
