Are you like me and have always wondered what happened to the Galaxy after the death of Emperor? Did the whole Imperial Empire throw a big bonfire, like the ewoks? Surely all of the Emperor’s soldiers and admirals, didn’t just give up because their leaders were gone? And what about the rebels … did they set up the republic again, and just have every planet come into the fold?
If you are one of these people, then you should give Tom Veitch’s, Dark Empire Trilogy, a try. Set in the aftermath of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, and spinning out of the events set up in Timothy Zahn’s, Heir to the Empire Trilogy, Veitch’s DET tells the story of the return of Palpatine, the seduction of Luke Skywalker to the Dark Side of the Force, and the fate of the New Republic. And since George Lucas will never make Episodes VII-IX, this book can fill in, in its place.
