It seems from TOS's description of these books that they take place concurrently. This is something we haven't seen before in EU (forgetting I, Jedi), so I'm just wondering, what does it mean for the narrative structure of the books themselves? If they do take place at the same time, will Dark Journey focus mostly on the Jedi, while Enemy Lines is about the New Republic? Apparently in Dark Journey Jaina escapes from the Vong and gets to the Hapes Consortium. Presumably, Jag Fel will be an important element in the story. We know that in Enemy Lines Wedge covers the NR government's retreat and presumably search for a new safehold. How cool would it be if Jaina manages to smooth out anti-Jedi sentiment in Hapes (by, say, promising Jacen will marry into the royal line...j/k) just in time for the remains of the NR government to make it there. Then the powerful Hapes Consortium, immensely wealthy and strong, would become the center of the fight against the Vong. Sounds good to me. You'll also notice that the Hapes Cluster would put the NR's strength pretty much across the Vong's invasion route from the Imperial Remnant (although I'm not positive, I don't have the map in front of me). What does everyone think?
