    Timothy Zahn, author of much anticipated Star Wars novel Outbound Flight will be signing his new book (available Tues, January 31, 2006). Mr. Zahn is the author who put the 501st in the Expanded Universe with his book Survivor's Quest. It will be like the Matthew Stover signing we did last April.

    Those with quality costumes, contact me to attend. For when this book takes place, it would be nice to have Clones and many Jedi for this.


    First Look: Outbound Flight
    March 22, 2005

    Since 1991, fans of Star Wars literature have wondered about the mysterious Outbound Flight project. This Fall, Del Rey and author Timothy Zahn will reveal all.

    First briefly mentioned in the watershed novel, Heir to the Empire, Outbound Flight was an ambitious project that sent an expeditionary mission of six Jedi Masters, 12 Jedi Knights and 50,000 men, women and children beyond the borders of known space to make contact with intelligent life. It was the brainchild of Jorus C'baoth, but even so influential a Jedi Master had to navigate the cumbersome Republic bureaucracy to get this monumental proposal approved.

    With the foiling of a murderous plot, C'baoth gained the influence he needed to get Outbound Flight underway. In truth, this turn of fortune was carefully engineered by Darth Sidious, the shadowy Sith Lord who wants Outbound Flight to begin, and ultimately, to fail.

    The mission is doomed from the start, for lurking within Unknown Space is the Chiss Ascendancy, and the brilliant alien mastermind who will someday become Grand Admiral Thrawn. Not even the presence of Obi-Wan Kenobi and his young Padawan learner, Anakin Skywalker, aboard the gargantuan vessel can avert disaster.[/blockquote]

    -Be in costume any time between 6-6:45. The earlier the better. During this time we are allowed to roam, (not Rome ), inside and outside the store to stir up interest.

    -Just before 7:00, we will then escort Mr. Zahn to the place where he will be signing books.

    -During his talking/ Q&A we will back against the wall "at attention".

    -When the signing starts, we are encouraged to interact with the fans.

    -Those looking to get a book signed will be able to. It would be nice if all the costumers went together for this to get a couple group pictures.
