Map of the Temple catacombs

Main Level[edit]

Beyond the temple door in the east wall behind you is the ramp back up to the main floor, while through the doorway in the west wall are two guard droids:

Through the doorway in the south wall of this room is another with a footlocker by the west wall and a rune covered pillar by the east wall, which is mined:

Novice Sith such as yourself cannot be trusted to remember even simple tasks, acolyte. It is therefore prudent for your masters to explain themselves at length, using very small words.

The ancient sequencer on the lower levels can only be activated once all the sequencer tiles on the floor have been set to their active mode by walking on them in the correct pattern. To make all the tiles the same color, simply walk the tiles in the pattern of an 'H'. I trust there will not be another unfortunate 'incident' like the last time...

Through the doorway in the north wall is another room with two storage cylinders by the east wall in the southeast corner with random contents, and a temple door in the west wall of the northwest corner, beyond which are the sequencer tiles on the floor mentioned in the datapad above: they're arranged in a 3x3 grid with an additional tile at the east end of the north row, which deactivates all sequencer tiles if a mistake is made. These tiles open the massive door in the west wall:

Security Massive Door Unlock 100 (80) Bash Resist - Vitality -

[Tile pattern incorrect.]

Make sure you're in Solo mode to prevent your party from running over the tiles as well. The orientation of the 'H' pattern doesn't matter (so you can run over the north and south rows or the east and west rows, then the perpendicular center row) and you don't have to remain on the grid, so it's best to overrun it and move around outside the grid before getting back on.

Ancient Computer[edit]

Once all the sequencer tiles have been activated, the massive door opens to allow access to the Rakata computer in the center of the otherwise empty room beyond:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: Welcome back, Revan. It has been some time since you last accessed my database. I was beginning to wonder if you had been terminated.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I almost was. But I'm hard to kill. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm not Revan anymore. I'm Name. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. You recognize me?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: An obvious conclusion, given your presence here. However, my sensory input systems are detecting some significant changes in your composition since your last visit. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: An odd statement, though it does explain certain conflicting data being read by my sensory input systems. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: Of course. The Builders constructed me with a full range of sensory input systems to compliment my fully aware and self-sufficient programming.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: I recognize your appearance from your last visit, which is stored in my databanks. However, I am detecting some significant changes in your composition since your last visit.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: Your neurological patterns exhibit subtle yet substantive alterations in both thought patterns and information processing. These changes have been noted and recorded in my database.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Your database? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What are you?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: I am a completely self-sufficient, autonomous, interactive database constructed by the Rakata to record and store the entire history of the species. However, since the collapse of the Infinite Empire there have been few events worth recording, and nobody has sought to access the information stored within my database... until you came along.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Your database? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. What are you? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. I need some information. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: Welcome back once again, Revan. Do you need to access the data within my storage banks? KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I want to ask you something else.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: Due to my systems' ability to monitor and repair themselves, you will find all the data within my archives has remained fully intact. Please choose the topic you wish information on.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. I'm looking for genetic data on the Rakata.
Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. How can I shut off the disruptor field around this planet?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: The Disruptor Field was constructed as the Star Forge's primary defense against enemy attack, and can only be deactivated from the upper levels of the Temple.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 5. How can I get to the upper levels of the temple?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: My systems control the doors to the upper levels, allowing only those who are worthy of the Rakata legacy to pass. The last time you were here, Revan, I unsealed the doors for you. However, the subtle neurological changes I detected in you earlier likely caused a failure in the recognition system that would have opened the doors for you. I have updated my databases to recognize the new configurations in your mind, Revan. The doors to the upper levels will once again open for you.

Once you've asked how you can get to the upper levels of the temple, the computer unlocks the Massive Door opposite the Temple entrance on the west side of the main floor so you can reach the Temple Summit. Otherwise, you can ask it to tell you about the Star Forge or if it knows anything about the Star Maps:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Tell me about the Star Forge.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: The Star Forge was constructed during the apex of the Infinite Empire's power. A true technological marvel, it is an enormous space station that serves as both factory and battle dreadnought. The Star Forge can mass produce immense fleets with a minimum of time and resources. In addition, the Star Forge also shares much of the same technology used in my own construction. In many ways the Star Forge is like a living entity. It feeds, it hungers, it draws on the energy flowing through all living things - what you called the Force the last time you were here. This ability to feed and consume the living energy of the Force is the key to the Star Forge's power, but ultimately it was also what led to the destruction of the Infinite Empire.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. What do you mean?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: The Rakata are by nature a cruel and savage species. The Star Forge fueled itself with the hatred inherent in its own creators, and in doing so it accentuated these traits within the Builders. In your terminology, the Star Forge is a tool of the dark side. It corrupts those who use it so that it can generate greater and greater amounts of negative energy to fuel itself. The Builders thought they were strong enough to control this effect, but they were wrong. They became victims of their own creation, and eventually their hatred turned them against each other. Civil war destroyed the Infinite Empire... a lesson to remember. Only one who is immensely strong in mind and will can harness the power of the Star Forge without suffering a similar fate.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Do you know anything about the Star Maps?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: The Star Maps were built on conquered worlds as a symbol of Rakatan dominance and glory. Each map showed the whole expanse of the Infinite Empire, with the Star Forge at the center. When the Empire fell, the Rakata fled back here to their homeworld. They sabotaged the Star Maps so the enslaved species could not use them to discover the Star Forge or this planet.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. But I used the Star Maps to find this place! KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. They didn't do a very good job of destroying them.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: The Star Maps were created with the same technology as my own self-sufficient systems. Over the millennia the maps have been slowly rebuilding and repairing themselves. As you informed me during your last visit to this world, the Star Maps are still in a damaged and incomplete state. It is not possible to locate the Star Forge using a single map. However, the Star Maps have repaired themselves to the extent that it is possible to discover the Star Forge's location by combining bits of data from several of the maps, as you did.

You can also ask it to tell you about the history of the Infinite Empire:

Dialog
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 6. Tell me about the history of the Infinite Empire.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: At its peak the Infinite Empire ruled over 500 planets and was comprised of ten billion Rakata and over a trillion slaves scattered across the galaxy. But the glory of the Infinite Empire was built on war and slaughter; it was inevitable it should collapse upon itself. Conflict among power-hungry warlords escalated into full civil war. Worlds were ravaged and millions of lives were lost. Sensing the weakness of their oppressors, the slaves rebelled and overthrew their masters. And then came the plague.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. The plague?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: Its origins were unknown - perhaps the creation of an enslaved species, perhaps a mutation of a natural virus. It killed only Rakata, and it spread to every corner of the galaxy. The Infinite Empire crumbled into dust as the few Rakata survivors fled back here to their home world. All evidence of their existence was destroyed by the species they once enslaved. But even hidden here on their secret home world they were not safe. Millions died from the deadly plague, many more died in the never ending civil war. The history of the Rakata ended twenty thousand years ago. Now they are nothing but a few scattered tribes descended from the priest and warrior castes, still waging our never ending civil war.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 7. I'll be going now.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: As you wish. Please return if you find yourself in need of the information stored within my database.

Rakatan Research[edit]

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Rakata Computer: My storage banks contain significant quantities of information on this subject, compiled through hundreds of years of research and study. Please wait while I load the information onto a data pad for your future reference. Processing... Information transfer complete. Is there anything else you require, Revan?
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Trapped on a Nameless World
You retrieved some genetic data from the ancient computer in the catacombs of the Temple of the Ancients. You're sure the Elder Researchers would find this information very useful.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Retrieved genetic data
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Rakata Computer
  • Datapad

This data pad contains information from many genetics studies conducted by the Rakata during their technological peak.

You can return this datapad to Researcher Ll'awa in the Elder settlement if the Elders helped you get inside the Temple of the Ancients, otherwise this is as far as this quest can be completed.
