- Baras's offices on Dromund Kaas. He is briefing Sevasht & co. -
Baras: There is no time to waste. Long have I planned to bring about PLAN ZERO.
- Music: Duh-duh DUUUUH! -
Baras: Now for the part I have kept hidden from my master, Darth Vengean…PLAN ZERO POINT ONE.
- Music: Duh-duh DUUUUH! -
- frame: Quinn looks worried. -
Quinn: My lord, that raises some concerns about the number of significant figures used in previous iterations of this plan…
Baras: SILENCE.

- Baras's offices on Dromund Kaas. He is briefing Sevasht & co. -
Baras: I have planted my loyal apprentice, Lord Draahg, to work for Darth Vengean for a long time. You will rendezvous with him and destroy Vengean.
Sevasht: I note that no part of this plan has you lifting a finger.
Baras: Lifting a finger to strangle failed apprentices is my backup plan.
Sevasht: Right, then.

- Darth Vengean's offices on Dromund Kaas. Sevasht & co. approach Lord Draahg. -
Lord Draahg: Thanks for the assist! I've spent most of my time so far not attacking Vengean's defenses.
Sevasht: Oh. That's, that's good.
Lord Draahg: After you.

- Further into Darth Vengean's compound…Sevasht & co. have their weapons out as they go. -
Lord Draahg: Wow. You're awesome.
Sevasht: Aw, thanks. You're not half bad yourself.
- frame: Lord Draahg blushes. -
Sevasht: We're still going to kill each other someday.
Lord Draahg: I don't know what you're talking about.
Sevasht: …crud. If you're actually a player character this could be a problem.
Lord Draahg: THAT'S A SECRET.
Sevasht: Jeez, sorry.
Lord Draahg: But I'm not. No worries. Besides, it won't be an issue! We're going to be a great team.
Sevasht: …Was that a strain of ominous music?
Lord Draahg: What? No!
- frame: Sevasht crosses his arms and gives Draahg the stink-eye. -
Sevasht: That was an actual strain of actual ominous music.
Lord Draahg: Why, look at the time. Better go finish the quest.

- Darth Vengean's inner sanctum. Sevasht & company approach alongside Lord Draahg. -
Darth Vengean: You! Sevasht! You monumental screwup!
Sevasht: What?
Darth Vengean: Darth Baras would never have gotten this far if you hadn't listened to him.
Sevasht: Hey, Draahg's at fault here, too!
Darth Vengean: Draahg was pretending to work for me. That makes him very nearly useful.
Sevasht: It's a little late to undo Baras's maniac power trip now.
Darth Vengean: You should join me.
Sevasht: I can't, man. It's not even on the option wheel.
Darth Vengean: THAT'S A SECRET.
Quinn: My lord…?
Jaesa: Something's going on here.
Sevasht: It's Sith stuff.
Jaesa: I'm Sith!
Sevasht: Crud. That excuse won't work anymore.
Vengean: Way to go, genius.

- Darth Vengean's inner sanctum. Darth Vengean is dead. -
Lord Draahg: Nice going. You totally carried that fight.
Sevasht, smugly: I did, didn't I?
- frame: Sevasht's crew all glare at him. -
Sevasht: …right. Sorry, guys.
Sevasht: I'd share credit, but my options for what to say get really constrained sometimes.
Lord Draahg: I'm starting to see why Baras never used you for the jobs that required an ounce of discretion.

- Darth Baras's offices on Dromund Kaas. Sevasht & co. walk in with Lord Draahg.-
Baras: Glorious! Now I take Darth Vengean's seat on the Dark Council!
Sevasht: But…I killed him.
Baras: Draahg did, too. The rank goes to your mutual master.
Sevasht: So if I'd offed Draahg first I could've taken the Dark Council seat?
Baras: No, it's still mine.
- frame: Darth Baras waves dismissively. -
Baras: Go take a vacation or something. I've got some maniacal cackling to do.
