The Legendary Adventures makes its next stop at Outbound Flight, Timothy Zahn’s earliest chronological novel about Thrawn. A temporary peace has been struck across the galaxy as the Trade Federation is put under heavy penalties after the Crisis on Naboo. Now, the Republic authorizes a mission to the outermost regions of the galaxy, seeking to meet new lifeforms and expand Republic culture beyond its current bounds.
The Legendary Adventures move out of the The Phantom Menace era and into a new era: that of the rising Separatist movement as the galaxy barrels along toward war! The first stop? The mysterious sentient planet known as Zonoma Sekot, recognized from its role in the New Jedi Order era as the home planet of the Yuuzhan Vong!
The Legendary Adventures has hit a huge milestone: the first film to be read in the context of the Legends chronology! Join me and discover how the Legendary Adventures has changed my opinions of the novelization of one of the least popular Star Wars films.
The revamped Legendary Adventures speed to our first film milestone, The Phantom Menace, as the Trade Federation poses a threat to Darth Sidious’s plan for galactic take over!
The Phantom Menace‘s beginning was, suffice it to say, less than ideal. The whole concept of the movie was that a disastrous trade dispute had turned into open hostility between a planet and the Trade Federation. Hardly any background information on the trade dispute was given, leaving most confused about the core of the conflict and what it meant for any of the characters. This is where Legends stepped in: not only did it fill it in the gaps, but Legends authors came together to weave a grand narrative out of this, spinning, eventually, into Palpatine’s overt bid for control of the galaxy.

Starting in 2018, the Legendary Adventures are going to look a bit different! Read on to see what changes are being made to make them the most exciting literary trek you’ll take through 2018!
Maul: Lockdown was one of the last books released in the Legends canon, released only months before the Legends announcement was made. As such, it flew under my radar, between school and the announcement, and I had only heard of it recently as I was going through the Adventures. Is it worth tracking down? Your mileage may vary.
The Muun, the myth, the Legend, but not the Supreme Leader. Darth Plagueis is known for a great many things, but leading the First Order is not one of them. I encounter of the most enigmatic figures in Legends history in the first step into the Prequel Trilogy realm of Star Wars Legends!
Part of every good adventure is putting down our own milestones. These milestones remind us where we’ve been and help point us forward to where we are going. As the Legendary Adventures crank on, it’s important to take a look back and remember where we have been so far!
