The Cabal was a series of explorations founded by Deamos Na-Coth during the days of the Galactic Republic to search for the legendary planet Exo. Each exploration consisted of a massive colony ship with a primitive hyperdrive. Most of the Cabal expeditions ended in disaster - mutinies, attacked by pirates, caught in ion storms, hyperdrive malfunctions or simple disappearances. One ship, the Exocros Cabal, founded a society on the planet Exocron in the Kathol Outback.
