Flashpoint: Kaon Under Siege

A new Flashpoint introduced with Game Update 1.1, 'Kaon Under Siege' takes players to Kaon, a small world in a resource-rich sector of space known as the Tion Hegemony. A mysterious outbreak of the Rakghoul plague has ravaged the planet's population, and those not lucky enough to be killed by the virus have mutated into twisted monstrosities. In the midst of the chaos a small group of survivors have been able fend off the seemingly endless waves of Rakghouls, but their time is running short. You, along with up to three of your Imperial or Republic allies, will have to travel to Kaon to rescue the survivors and discover the truth behind the release of the plague.

Operation: Karagga's Palace, part II

Part II of the Karagga's Palace Operation picks up where the first section ends. After you first confront Karagga and defeat the monsters in his beast pit, you and your allies will battle your way through Karagga's palace before confronting the Hutt himself. You and your allies will have your skills and teamwork tested against Karagga's private army of bounty hunters and Battle Droids, but your efforts will not go unrewarded. Defeating Karagga and his army will reward you with powerful weapons and armor, with even more exceptional rewards for players who conquer this Operation's hard mode
