After successfully retrieving the Death Star plans, Kyle Katarn is hired by the Rebel Alliance to uncover information about a secret trooper project the Empire has in development.
Did You Know?
According to pre-release developer interviews, the game's protagonist Kyle Katarn was named after the Katarn Commandos, a team of renowned soldiers featured in several Star Wars-based books and comics and although his bio says he was a member of that team prior to the game's events, he has nothing to do with its name. The original idea was that the team was named after a widespread creature of the Star Wars world, named "Katarn", which is also featured on the team's insignia. See more

This contemptible excuse for an officer will no longer divulge any more information to that Rebel, Kyle Katarn.
Katarn will not be as easy to deal with. He is very resourceful. More resourceful, it seems, than even your Dark Troopers.
I understand the threat, Lord Vader. Katarn was once an impressive Imperial officer. But he was weak, and gave up on the struggle for our New Order. I wouldn't put much faith in his abilities. Katarn will never come near ...
The German version has many references to violence removed in dialog:
- In the intro and the briefing for the first mission, Kyle's blaster pistol is referred to as a stunning pistol. Because of that detail, Mon Mothma has been given extra lines of dialog before the first mission, mentioning that the guards needed to be stunned to avoid casualties.
- In the briefing for the second mission, Jan says "I'm relieved" instead of "I'm impressed" and "Good luck, Kyle" instead of "Good hunting, Kyle".
- Before the sixth mission, Jan urges Kyle to stay alive. In the censored version, she says that he should avoid being detected.
