The Black Fleet Crisis

Star Wars Saga Timeline:
16 ABY



In the blockbuster bestselling tradition of Heir to the Empire comes this thrilling addition to the Star Wars saga, as peace gives way to a dire new threat…

It is a time of tranquillity for the New Republic. The remnants of the Empire now lie in complete disarray, and the reemergence of the Jedi Knights has brought power and prestige to the fledgling government on Coruscant. Yesterday's Rebels have become today's administrators and diplomats, and the factions that fought against Imperial tyranny seem united in savoring the fruits of peace.

But the peace is short-lived. A restless Luke must journey to his mother's homeworld in a desperate and dangerous quest to find her people. An adventurous Lando must seize a mysterious spacecraft that has weapons of enormous destructive power and an unknown mission. And Leia, a living symbol of the New Republic's triumph, must face down a ruthless leader of the Duskhan League, an arrogant Yevetha who seems bent on a genocidal war that could shatter the fragile unity of the New Republic…and threaten its very survival.


Leia faces curious negotiations with Nil Spaar, the leader of the mysterious Yevetha from uncharted Imperial space, who are secretly preparing for a fanatical war to wipe out the 'vermin' of the galaxy (non-Yevethas) with their Black Fleet. Lando joins the Navy to track down a mysterious ghost ship which might carry great wealth aboard. Luke isolates himself from the rest of the world but is forced out of his isolation when a woman offers him information on his lost mother, who was part of a Jedi-like religion The Current who was hunted by the Empire.
