Star Wars Saga Timeline:
The New Republic's triumph grows ever more precarious in the face of an arrogant race bent on war, as the bestselling Star Wars saga continues….
As Leia must deal with a new threat to the fragile alliance that binds the New Republic, Lando becomes a prisoner aboard a runaway spacecraft of unknown origin. The ship is following an unstoppable path to its homeworld, destroyed by Imperial forces. Luke continues his quest to learn more about his mother among the Fallanassi, where his every belief about the use of the Force is about to be challenged. And while Leia ponders a diplomatic solution to the aggression of the fierce Yevetha race, Han pilots a spy ship into the heart of Yevethan space and faces a vast fleet of warships under the command of a ruthless leader—a fleet more than a match for the New Republic's forces….
The New Republic faces dissention on what to do about the Yetha’s eradication of their neighbors. Meanwhile, Luke and Akanah search for her people unsucessfully and Lando remains trapped aboard the alien derelict.
