Revealed on 2/7/2009 at the NYCC '09: "Rob Chesney, a writer at Bioware who worked on developing the Knights of the Old Republic online game, joined the panel. As a tie-in to the new game, Chesney is writing Star Wars: Old Republic, an online comic that will appear on Alex Sanchez will pencil the serial, which comes out at a pace of three pages every two weeks, beginning later this month. Calling it “the legacy of KOTOR,” Chesney suggested that the first installment will appear on Feb. 24, “but don't quote me.” So fans can check the site on or near that date. Old Republic will be set 300 years after KOTOR and 3000 before A New Hope. After being exiled to deep space, the Sith Empire, rebuilt, returns and approaches the Republic and the Jedi with a peace treaty. It's a “really great moment,” Chesney gushed. He looks forward to “introducing people to that timeframe and the characters.” Atkins told fans that Dark Horse will eventually be publishing a print trade paperback of Old Republic."
The Sith Empire has scored a series of solid military victories over the Republic, winning control of several critical star systems and seriously damaging the Republic’s logistical supply lines. Overwhelmed but stoic, the Jedi and the Republic Military have succeeded in defending the Core Worlds and have slowed the Empire’s steady advances. In a surprising turn of events, the Empire has now extended an offer of peace to the Galactic Senate. Wary but desperate, the Republic has agreed to engage in ceasefire talks. A large delegation of prominent Senate and the best and brightest of the Jedi are traveling to the planet Alderaan, where they expect to hunker down for lengthy negotiations on the terms of a treaty with a representative from the Sith Dark Council.
