The classic role-playing game "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" was developed by BioWare in 2003 for PCs and the Xbox. It uses the same engine as the "Baldur's Gate" series of games, and despite its futuristic setting, uses Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition rules. During the game, your ship, the Ebon Blade, will be invaded by small critters called gizka. This invasion is triggered automatically in the Tatooine Docking Bay. There are three possible methods of dealing with the gizka invasion.
Buy "Gizka Poison," using the standard shop interface, from the merchant in the Tatooine Docking Bay or the Anchorhead Cantina bartender. Click on a gizka to poison it. The poison will spread to the rest of the gizka and kill them, too.
Talk to Nubassa, an exotic animal dealer on Manaan. Either pay him to remove the gizka or have a dark-side character persuade him to pay you.
Ignore the gizka. They are cute and harmless. They leave the ship on their own when you get to the Unknown World.
