After Darth Revan witnessed first-hand the abilities of the HK-47 assassin droid he created, he decided that more droids of this design would make excellent agents for his purposes. HK-47 became the basis for a new model of HK-series assassin droids: the HK-50. Revan was captured and his memory was erased before this plan could be realized, however, and the production on the HK-50 model ceases for several years. Eventually, the crime lord G0-T0, who was in fact a planning droid previously assigned to Telos IV, discovered the HK-50 manufacturing facility and reactivated it, disseminating the new model assassin droids throughout the galaxy searching for the Jedi.
During her travels Meetra Surik visited to the Telos factory along with HK-47. The assassin droid convinced the HK-51 models to join his cause. The combined droid forces later helped defeat G0-T0 in a showdown on Malachor V allowing for the planet to finally be destroyed.
Behind the scenesEdit
The HK manufacturing plant was deleted from Knights of the Old Republic II, though many of the source files were included with the PC version.
The "entrance" to the HK Manufacturing Plant however is still in game though the door is sealed shut. When the PC reaches the Czerka Military Base on Telos, a door labeled "Sub-Level" is sealed. Beyond the door is supposed to be an elevator leading down into the sub level of the base where a number of control rooms are present to the base and then another elevator into the actual Manufacturing Plant.
During his time in the factory, HK-47 fought a large number of HK-50 droids, and a much smaller number of HK-51 droids. HK-47 had the option to persuade either the HK-50 or the HK-51 droids to join him and defeat G0-T0 on Malachor V. He also had the option to destroy all the droids.
