This is a question about The Old Republic and Legends.
In Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, Kreia (Darth Traya) tells Meetra Surik (or the player character) that Revan had left known space to pursue the true Sith Empire. I'm sure this was originally a build up to a hopeful Knights of the Old Republic III but instead we have Star Wars: The Old Republic, the MMO to resolve this plot thread.
We learn in The Old Republic (and related materials) that the Sith Lord, Vitiate took the Sith that remained after their defeat at the Great Hyperspace War and fled to Dromund Kaas, an old Sith World where they began to rebuild their empire, the one that Revan sought and the one that invades the Republic during the Great Galactic War.
Okay, so here's my question (problem). Korriban is well known to the Jedi and the Republic as the homeworld of the Sith. Infact, we have a cinematic trailer that shows the Sith Empire retaking Korriban from the Republic that is guarding it. We visit it in both KOTOR 1 and 2 and yet it would appear that Dromund Kaas is only a short trip away from Korriban.
There are planets that are even further out like Telos and Peragus from KOTOR 2 that the Republic has regular contact with. Assuming that this isn't just bad writing, how does Dromund Kaas remain unknown when its surrounded by known Sith Worlds and we know that the Sith were expanding and conquering worlds in this area (Source: Revan novel)?
