Star Wars: The Old Republic's Latest Holorecord Details The Battle of Bothawui

Posted Mon, Oct 26, 2009 by Martuk

Star Wars: The Old Republic has released a new video holorecord detailing the battle of Bothawui. In the latest recording, Master Gnost-Dural (voice by Lance 'The Man' Henriksen) recounts the Jedi and Republic's sacrifice on the world of Bothawui against superior Sith Empire numbers. Though the Jedi and Republic were vastly outnumbered, they managed to strike a painful blow to the Empire and earn a bittersweet victory.

BTC 18 – Nearly a decade after the return of the Sith Empire and the start of the Great War, the Empire had scored dozens of victories, establishing its dominance in the Outer Rim. As the Sith turned their forces toward the Mid Rim, however, the Republic prepared a bold surprise. When an Imperial squadron arrived to seize control of Bothawui, the entire Republic fleet was waiting. The fleet’s victory was celebrated across the galaxy, but the truly inspiring moment was yet to come. As the Republic fleet dispersed to defend other battlefronts, only a small force remained behind to face the Empire’s retribution. The Jedi and Republic troopers on Bothawui never had a chance of surviving the Imperial attack, but their courage and selflessness in the face of impossible odds won a victory far greater than that from any single battle. The heroic stand on Bothawui restored hope across the galaxy, and rallied the Republic’s forces to fight with renewed courage.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
