Luke gets a chapter-long lecture on politics from Mon Mothma that ends up having no effect on anything, a New Republic Intelligence Agent spends twenty-five pages crashing a starship onto Corellia, Lando flits from planet to planet looking for a wife, and other storylines similarly drag themselves out painfully in this first volume of a trilogy that had no excuse being longer than one book.
The one before The Truce at Bakura became relevant to the EU again.
What do you mean the main character isn't Belindi Kalenda?
Spiffy B-movie title for a book that has a bloated pagecount and a whole lot of nothing inside.
The Solo clan learns that you can't go home again--even on the paternal side--while a Corellian trade fair tries to make the galaxy go boom.
"Can't we get through *one* trilogy without someone blowing up a sun?"
Bump--this one's still wide open, fellas.
The only book where Leia could beat Luke in a lightsaber fight...and we don't even know why this is established because she doesn't even really use her lightsaber much.
That's called establishing characters and setting.
The Adventures of Belindi Kalenda with guest appearances by Luke, Leia, Han, the Solo kids, Chewie, and Lando
Quiet, you. Okay,
@Jello takes it.
"Han Solo faces deception and death on a planet about to explode..."
Two Hans, Crazy-Eye Leia, and Bespin Luke with ROTJ Lightsaber.
Hey, isn't that the guy from the Fugitive movie behind Han?
This book is only notable because Han Solo fights a sea otter.
Why ever so? It followed all the rules set forth perviously....
We’re reminded that Truce at Bakura exists while Han gets to crawl around in tight spaces with a bunch of otters.
I reserve the right to disqualify entries for boringness. Blame Jello.
We interrupt your regularly scheduled space opera for Assault on Selonia, a fascinating look at the psychology, physiology, culture, and politics of Giant Space Otters--with special guest Han Solo!
Dr. Richard Kimble has turned evil and it is up to Hans Solo to do an Henry Jones Jr. [stop bad guy from using an ancient artefact for evil]
But it's a meta joke. It's on the cover!
