Knights of the Old Republic: Outcasts is a full-cast audio drama based on a fanfiction written by Devin Cox and Jennifer Wilson. It was produced by Forward Momentum Productions and written and directed by Devin Cox. There are two episodes released of seven planned.
Thirty years after the end of the Jedi Civil War (As portrayed in the video game "Knights of the Old Republic I and II"), there followed an era of relative peace. The Sith existed only on the fringes of the Outer Rim and were mostly reduced to the level of pirates and petty warlords. However, during this time the Jedi, almost extinct themselves after so many battles against their ancient enemies, have fallen out of favor.
It is in this time of galactic prosperity, that a new Sith Lord, Kirennan Venaar emerges. His fleet blockades the small Mid Rim world of Derra IV, and her sends his troops to recover a secret power, so devastating it could destroy the entire galaxy.
In the invasion, Kara Tao Vanden's family is murdered. As the young farm girl mourns them in shattered remains of their home, she finds a holocron and lightsaber. The old woman in the holocron reveals that she is Selene Bladedancer, Kara's grandmother, and that this holocron must never fall into anyone's hands, ever again.
Thus begins Kara's quest for vengeance, and the race to control the ultimate secret.

Background Information Edit
- Knights of the Old Republic: Outcasts was the first audio drama from Devin Cox and Forward Momentum.
- The first episode originally featured Devin Cox attempting the role of Aeron, with disastrous results. The role was later given to Hazen Nester, who redid Aeron's lines in Episode One.
- Outcasts was inspired, at least partially, by the end theme of the Record of Loddoss Wars OAVs.
- The idea for Kara Tao Vanden came from a Ralph Macquarie drawing with a female version of Luke Skywalker. This led to the ethos of "let's stand all the Star Wars stereotypes on their ear.
