Found a link (via your link) to saved game files (download K1 Taris/partial Dantooine archive). This person played a different character class and completed more of the game than I had (Zax's bounties, etc) so I'm not entirely sure of the background at this point. The save I copied into my game put me in right after the Swoop race. Bastilla had freed herself and we had to fight to get out of that section. I am now able to continue the game (find a way off Taris) by obtaining codes from a Sith Military base. Thanks for your assistance. Hopefully I'll be able to get further without any more issues.
