The Clone Wars have yet to erupt when Jedi Master Jorus C'baoth petitions the Senate for support of a singularly ambitious undertaking. Six Jedi Masters and 12 Jedi Knights, including Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, and 50,000 men, women, and children, will embark on a mission to contact intelligent life and colonize undiscovered worlds beyond the known galaxy: Outbound Flight.

But unknown to Master C'baoth, the successful launch of the mission is secretly being orchestrated by an unlikely ally: the evil Sith Lord Darth Sidious, who has his own reasons for wanting Outbound Flight to move forward...and, ultimately, to fail.

Yet Darth Sidious is not the mission's most dangerous challenge. What begins as a peaceful Jedi mission is violently transformed into an all-out war for survival against staggering odds and the most diabolical of adversaries.

Timothy Zahn's unique mix of espionage, political gamesmanship, and deadly interstellar combat breathes electrifying life into a Star Wars legend.

    " A very interesting book overall delving into the story of Outbound Flight and Jorus C'Boath. Would have been better without the forced-feeling parts played by Obi-Wan and Anakin during the first half of the book. The book would have been better with them in a much more reduced role - perhaps leaving the story after the first thread on the diplomatic mission. "

    " An excellent book from the original master of the Star Wars novel. Filled with intrigue throughout, Zahn weaves a complex, yet simple story about a doomed exploratory mission. One of the things I absolutely loved about this book is the two themes that are brought up throughout and are just as important in our world as in the SW galaxy: preemptive action and the proper position in society for those with exceptional gifts (i.e. Jedi ruling over average people). The former underlies our debates over Iraq and the latter has been debated since Plato's Guardians. Zahn comes out against both preemptive action and Jedi domination as those who are on the opposite side (i.e. Thrawn and C'Baoth) end up dead or severely punished. The one thing I didn't like was the haphazard way Obi-Wan and Anakin exit the novel. True, they needed to stay alive, but considering how useful they actually turned out to be (before I started reading I thought they were just kind of thrown in there without a care) it would have been nice to see them take part in the final battle or be in a concluding epilogue where they are part of a search team that turns up empty handed. All in all, a great novel that all SW fans should cherish. "

    " Great story. Introduces the future Grand Admiral Thrawn. Timothy Zahn can bring the Star Wars universe to life like no one else. Highly enjoyable one off story. "

    " A very good book it has many twist and turns taking it through 2 or 3 perspectives. Several battles and Arguments. Also many surprises and questions. "
