Podcast Stardust #303: The Yuuzhan Vong

by Podcast Stardust

We return to the Star Wars Legends universe with a discussion of the villains of the New Jedi Order — the Yuuzhan Vong and their biotechnology.

It is no secret that here at Podcast Stardust, we are big fans of the Legends universe of Star Wars stories. We have favorite characters, stories, and events that have not made their way to the current Star Wars canon. On this episode, we are going to begin a discussion of The New Jedi Order era of the Legends timeline. In particular, we are discussing the antagonists of the New Jedi Order: the Yuuzhan Vong. Join us as we discuss their hatred for mechanical technology, their society and culture, and why they invaded the Star Wars galaxy in the first place.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Where they Yuuzhan Vong come from and what their goal in the Star Wars galaxy was,
  • A description of what the Yuuzhan Vong looked like,
  • Why the Yuuzhan Vong could not be felt through the Force,
  • The Yuuzhan Vong hatred for mechanical technology and other beliefs,
  • The structure of Yuuzhan society and culture,
  • Aspects of the Yuuzhan Vong’s biotechnology, and
  • How they almost made it back into the current Star Wars canon.
