Voss is well known for its beautiful and memorable datacrons, all of which are available to both factions. There’s the green datacron hidden in the middle of the temple which can’t be accessed until you’ve completed a certain quest on Voss, the orange datacron hidden between a red force field in the ground, the purple datacron you fly over in the taxi, the red datacron hidden in the Gormak lands hills, and the yellow datacron hidden in the spirit world accessible through a sacred tablet.
Getting to Voss – Fly to Voss, or to save time, click the icon of “three little people” near your minimap to open the Activities panel, then choose Solo from the tabs at the top, then choose Heroic Missions: Voss and click Travel to go directly to Voss’s surface and skip the space station.

Quick Travel / Taxi
Pilgrim Retreat for both Imperial and Republic side.
Complete the Trials
This Datacron requires that you complete a purple story quest before you can access the Datacron. If you try to access the Datacron early, you’ll get a red error message. The quest you need to complete is called The trials, and here’s how to go pick it up.
Imperial: On Imperial side, you’ll need to pick up the quest called The Gormak Problem, a purple quest from the Voss quest giver named Fadith-Ki at the Pilgrim’s Retreat taxi and quick travel point, he’s just up the hill. You’ll need to be level 41 and up to pick up this quest. Do the simple quest to destroy the cannons nearby, then the quest will send you to Dalgo-Wo inside the Shrine of Healing – Imperial players can use the [HEROIC 2+] The First Commando’s Call quick travel to get there quicker. Once you talk to Dalga-Wo, you’ll automatically complete The First Commando’s Call and get a new purple quest called The Trials. The Trials is a medium length quest where you’ll need to go through multiple steps in the Voss Spirit World and eventually will be granted a vision. This will complete the quest.
Republic: On Republic side, you’ll need to pick up the quest called Roadblock, a purple quest from the Voss quest giver named Suva-Rak at the Pilgrim’s Retreat taxi and quick travel point, he’s just up the hill. You’ll need to be level 41 and up to pick up this quest. Do the simple quest to destroy the cannons nearby, then the quest will send you to Garel-Mo inside the Shrine of Healing – Republic players can use the [HEROIC 2+] Trial of the First quick travel to get there quicker. Once you talk to Garel-Mo, you’ll automatically complete Roadblock and get a new purple quest called The Trials. The Trials is a medium length quest where you’ll need to go through multiple steps in the Voss Spirit World and eventually will be granted a vision. This will complete the quest.
If you have already completed The Trials quest while you were levelling, you can skip straight to the datacron.
Get the Crystal
You may or may not need to do this step of the quest – there’s a good chance if you just completed The Trials, that you can just go and click the datacron in the center of the Shrine of Healing.
If you go to click the Datacron and it says, “Only those worthy can receive the Shrine’s gift.” you will need to go to the corner of the room with the Datacron, and look for a small crystal on a podium.
You can right-click the crystal to become attuned with the datacron.
If you try and right-click the crystal before you have completed the trials, it will give you a red error message that says “You must learn more to use this.” You’ll also get this error message if you’ve already gotten this datacron.
Otherwise, if you have completed the trials, you can right-click the crystal, and then you should be able to go right-click the datacron in the center of the room!
Taxi: Ken-La Outpost Skyhopper / Fort Kodentha Skyhopper
Location: Voss-Ka - Circle of Columns
Difficulty: Easy - but time consuming
Codex: Galactic History 77: A Return to the Unknown Regions
You can see this purple Datacron while travelling on the Voss speeder, but you’ll need to find the secret path that starts far away to get to it. There is no way to stop or pause the taxi.
You may also see it while exploring the capital city of Voss-Ka, and be tempted to jump down to it. If you do, even if you are a careful rock jumper, you will automatically die once you get to a certain point down the mountains, so you’ll need to find another path to reach the purple datacron.
Quick Travel / Taxi
Find the Hill
Follow the Rock Path
At one point the path looks like a dead end, back track a bit and start jumping up again.
Jump Up the Rocks
Eventually you will reach the broken circle of columns with the datacron.
