Bad news: It's a client crash in a game that's been out for a year and 2 months.
Good news: When you log back in, you still receive full credit and the quest completion window is waiting for you on either Dromund Kaas or Fleet.

I'm wondering, and this is by no means an insult to the OP or anyone else having this problem it's definitely not meant to be. I just don't know and am wondering if somebody can give me the run down on why this crash problem isn't a computer specific problem but a swtor game specific problem. In my experiences I've only had a crash to desktop situation happen 2wice from launch until now. When I read these types of posts I tend to believe it's the user's computer and not he game itself. Can someone explain the difference to me since I don't understand?

Players have been complaining about this for a long time now. They haven't acknowledge these complaints, ever. Players are tired of complaining, myself included. It's a waste of time sending in tickets and complaints.

Forget it. It's a lost cause.

Are you sure it's not your computer?

Im guessing this crash happens after the mission is over and you click the console that takes you back to the fleet or to dromund kaas?

If so, you can avoid crashing by alt tab'ing out during that cut scene after the choice is made for where the ship will go

on the contrary..bioware HAS acknowledged the complaints. Several times actually. And they've suggested to players what they can do until there is an actual fix..

to the OP, what people are suggesting here is correct. During and of the "hyperspace" animation parts of Black Talon (and i've found sometimes on the opening scene of Foundry) you simply alt-tab out of the game for about 15-seconds or so to make sure the animation is over, then pull the game back up and you're good to go.

is this what we WANT to do as a quick fix in place of a REAL fix?

No.

but it works for now.

Hello!

I wanted to jump in here and let you know that Eric has confirmed that we made some improvements to crashing issues in the latest patch, but we are aware that this issue may still occur and we are actively working on fixing this.

Hope this helps! Thanks!

Crash occurs when the ship travels and the planet is supposed to appear outside the ship, it is the same with the republic equivalent of the black talon instance.

Fix it, dear devs, it's probably one of the most popular dungeons, considering it's the very first one.

Same problem exists in the Foundry (Empire) mission, right at the start when the ship travels to the Foundry. It's on the Known Issues list for ages. It would be nice to see it fixed though, currently everyone is dreading getting the Foundry through random group finder rotation
