Podcast Stardust #305: The New Jedi Order – Star By Star

by Podcast Stardust

We divert to the Legends universe of Star Wars storytelling to discuss Troy Denning’s Star By Star from the New Jedi Order. Anakin Solo leads a team to destroy the Voxyn queen.

In episode 303, we started a discussion of The New Jedi Order series from the Legends timeline. On this episode, we discuss what many consider to be The Empire Strikes Back novel of The New Jedi Order: Troy Denning’s Star By Star. When the Yuuzhan Vong create a monster capable of tracking down and slaying Jedi, Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Order must find a way to defeat these monsters. Anakin Solo, the youngest child of Princess Leia and Han Solo, has a plan. It is dangerous, but it must be done. On this episode of Podcast Stardust, we dive into the details of Star By Star and share our thoughts about this pivotal book from The New Jedi Order.

On this fully armed and operational episode of Podcast Stardust, we discuss:

  • How we first encountered Star By Star and our initial reactions,
  • What the Voxyn are and why the Yuuzhan Vong created them,
  • Anakin Solo’s plan to destroy the Voxyn queen,
  • The adventures of Princess Leia and Han Solo and their attempts to protect Ben Skywalker,
  • Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade’s battle with the Yuuzhan Vong,
  • The Battle of Coruscant,
  • The fates of Anakin Solo and Jacen Solo, and
  • The character of Vergere and more.
