Timothy Zahn’s Star Wars: Outbound Flight works akin to Greg Bear’s Star Wars: Rogue Planet in reconciling elements of the Prequel Era with the New Jedi Order series. Further, Zahn helps to reconcile his portrayal of the Clone Wars from his Heir to the Empire trilogy with that in Attack of the Clones and the subsequent Clone Wars series, specifically in relation to Jedi Master Jorus C’baoth.

Zahn, ever a master storyteller, balances several narratives along the course of the novel. First, the Chiss and Commander Thrawn are learning about the Republic while remaining in the shadows. Second, Jorus C’baoth is campaigning for his Outbound Flight program to explore the Unknown Regions and other galaxies, contacting possible Force-sensitive individuals while also creating Jedi enclaves free of the growing turmoil in the Republic. Third, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine is balancing his official role of trying to foster stability within the Republic while, in his identity as Darth Sidious, he pursues his own agenda. Sidious has become aware of a group called the “Far Outsiders” (the Yuuzhan Vong) who are establishing a foothold in the galaxy preparatory to a full-scale invasion. He worries that, should they encounter Outbound Flight, it will provide tactical information that could hasten the invasion before he can establish the power necessary to repel them (pgs. 318-319). Finally, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker are involved in negotiations and the Outbound Flight project in order to keep an eye on C’baoth and his growing paranoia. The Jedi Council also hopes the Outbound Flight program will help to determine what happened to the missing Jedi, Vergere (pg. 50), who first appeared in Greg Bear’s novel, Rogue Planet, which released six years prior to Outbound Flight and similarly linked the Prequel Trilogy with the New Jedi Order.

These various narratives might leave a lesser writer mired in confusion, but due to Zahn’s skills as a writer, it’s easy to follow everything and see how the narrative threads begin to connect. The novel neatly incorporates elements from both the Prequel era and the New Jedi Order era while working as a successful standalone story. Readers of the Expanded Universe will find Zahn’s deft weaving of all these elements from Star Wars chronology most impressive. ( )

Surprisingly good! Keeps the prequelness to a relative minimum while tying things together neatly. Thrawn is amazing as always, and I love a good origin story. ( )

details the infamous Outbound Flight, headed by Jorus C’baoth, which ended in the death of many Jedi. Before Episode II. Finally, Zahn does a prequel. Meet Thrawn and get some of his background. Very enjoyable. ( )

NOTE: Some minor spoilers may follow.

Timothy Zahn did a truly excellent job with young Commander Thrawn; I enjoyed his interactions with Car'das, but especially his tactics and strategy for dealing with the Vagaari and Outbound Flight.

Speaking of Outbound Flight, I enjoyed the perspective of the Jedi, but I felt that perhaps Zahn covered too much ground. We went from before Outbound Flight was officially and finally green-lit until its destruction, and I thought more could have been done on the vessel (especially as things deteriorated between C'baoth and the non-Jedi crew). I also thought that, while Obi-wan was well portrayed, Anakin was a bit wooden (I guess maybe it was the Hayden-Christensen-in-"Attack-of-the-Clones" version).

C'baoth, I had read before reading this book, seemed to be way too much of a jerk to be a genuine Jedi Master. Sure, he apparently had a lot of power and a lot of experience, but he was completely emotional, arrogant, and obsessed, and nobody ever called him on it (to his face, at any rate). It's a fair question to wonder how such a man managed to become a Jedi Master. Still, it does explain his clone's personality, and it seems to have been the only way to compel Thrawn to destroy Outbound Flight in the end.

Ultimately, I enjoyed the book immensely, but it wasn't Zahn's best work. ( )
