The Mission to Arc Hammer was an event during the Galactic Civil War in which the Dark Trooper Project was shut down by mercenary Kyle Katarn.
He gathered clues throughout the Galaxy as to what the troopers were, and how to stop them. After stealing a nava card from Nar Shaddaa and learning the Arc Hammer's location, Katarn ventured to Ergo, through which he boarded the Executor, and then the Hammer.
Katarn boarded the Arc Hammer through an automated cargo container. From the cargo bay, he ripped through the inner defenses. His objective was to plant three sequencer charges in 3 exhaust ports to destroy the ship and escape in a space shuttle. He made his way through the inner mazes of the factory ship and planted the three charges. Kyle cleared the hangar bay of dark troopers and opened the shuttle hangar bay door.
He was greeted by an enormous dark mechanical figure.
The final battleEdit
Rom Mohc, creator of the dark troopers, confronted Katarn in his Phase III dark trooper exosuit, the greatest of the super-trooper phases; 1 of only 3 built. The two clashed in the hangar bays, both sustaining critical wounds.
In a last desperate attempt to penetrate the armor of the exosuit, Katarn fired volleys of beams and mortars into the thick armor. Mohc's powersuit malfunctioned and exploded, leaving his body in pieces.
The genius behind the dark trooper project was bested in battle.
With Mohc dead, Kyle hijacked an evacuation shuttle in the hangar and fled the burning ship.
The ship's launch bays exploded, igniting the gas tanks and engulfing the entire ship in flames. Kyle had successfully shut down the dark trooper project.
Darth Vader, who witnessed the mercenary's escape from a distance, was the first who recognized the presence of the Force within Katarn.
