Spolier Warning: If you haven't done these missions turn away now.

Played through these missions and couldn't help but noticed a similarity.

1982 Dark Crystal Movie
2 Species Mystics and the Skeskis that were once one race separated because of corruption and the beaking apart of the Dark Crystal. They are only united after a piece of shard is placed back back in the crystal re-uniting the species.

Voss Planet mission story arc.
2 species the Voss and Goracks whom you come to find out were at one time one species but separated by corruption. You have to re-unite them by telling them this. At one point you even have to use a "Dark Crystal" to snap some of the possessed voss out of heir corruption.
HECK even the ancient Voss are called Mystics for crying out loud.
If you play this as a Jedi Knight you can take your companion KIRA and make it even more right in line.

Either this is a huge coincidence or Bioware is paying homage to that movie which not many people actually remember.
I think I am going to replay this mission and rename my character to Jen as oddly enough I already have a KIRA to do it with. LOL!!!!
The best character in the game is the one you control

When coincidences are so large, it's not by chance. Nice find!

I literally just made this connection today after having done Voss on Imp and Pub many times before. Glad someone else figured it out sooner. Definitely not a coincidence.
