Rogue Planet - First Appearance of the Yuuzhan Vong
...two years after the Battle of Naboo, the Jedi Knight Vergere mysteriously vanished after being sent by Master Mace Windu on a scouting mission to the strange and bewildering planet of Zonama Sekot. One year later, Obi-Wan Kenobi and his new Padawan apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, explored Zonama Sekot and learned that Vergere might have been captured by an unknown alien species.
Crimson Empire II - Nom Anor Stirs Up Trouble
While (Kir) Kanos began moving against his enemies, another group was also trying to sabotage the council--the criminal organization Black Sun. The syndicate arranged to have several of the council members replaced with clones. After several assasinations had already thinned out the ranks of the council, the ranking member, Xandel Carivus, decided to disband the organization and rule alone as the new emperor. Carivus was operating on the instructions of Nom Anor, a shadowy figure whose motviations and true allegiances remain a mystery.
Even now, historic events are in motion. Borsk Fey'lya, a member of the Rebellion since its early years, has overcome several dark scandals in his past and finally ascended to the coveted office of chief of state. Master Luke Skywalker's new Jedi Knights have become the galaxy's patrol officers, but Skywalker now sees a need to oversee the Jedi. Consequently, he is seeking approval to reestablish the Jedi Council, which would unite twelve leading Jedi into a governing body not seen since the days of the Old Republic.
Of course, trouble spots remain. A few interspecies rivalries have been simmering ever since the Hand of Thrawn incident, and professional firebrand Nom Anor--the mysterious figure involved with Carnor Jax's Interim Council--has resurfaced to stir up trouble on the planets of Rhommamool and Osarian. But these are localized controversies, representing no imminent danger. With the remnants of the Empire content to rule their pocket of the Outer Rim, there seem to be no corners from which a new threat can arise. Historians can only hope that the galaxy will at last settle into an era of peace and stability.
