The Unifying Force: Star Wars Legends (The New Jedi Order)
Add to Cart. Seller: citywbooks. The title plays to that distinction. At the same time, what remains of the New Republic is amassing a unified force of fleets to hurl against the Yuuzhan Vong. And by extension, the title could also refer to the so-called Shamed Ones, outcast Yuuzhan Vong who become pivotal in the end stages of the long war. Q:Another theme has been the natural process of life: birth, maturation, death.
At the same time, on a larger scale, the same processes have unfolded in personal relationships, in political systems, in the clash of races and of civilizations.
New Jedi Order – Cold Bananas Movie & TV Reviews
The same thing, like a universal law, seems to be operating on all these different levels; is it the Force? JL: I feel on safer ground saying that it is different authors writing about the Force. Many an NJO plot point grew from the series outline itself; things were discovered along the way, as a kind of epiphenomenon of the creative process.
As depicted in the films, the Force appears to operate in a similar fashion. I guess you could say that we were at least attempting to ally ourselves with the Force—to write in harmony with it. Q:One of the many surprising revelations in the novel is that the Yuuzhan Vong were stripped of the Force: long ago, in a very real sense, they were exiled from it. This raises the question of whether the Force itself is sentient and willful, like a god. Many would say that Nature operates this way, in fashioning ozone holes, igniting forest fires, or giving the earth a good shaking from time to time.
The gross effect of sentient life is minimal when considered against the backdrop of the cosmic.
It can be posited—and has—that the Sith and Darth Vader were essential to bringing the Force back into balance; that, in some fashion, they were very much linked to realizing the ultimate goal of the Force. Q:Who is your favorite character in the novel, and why? JL: I always enjoy writing Han Solo. But in The Unifying Force I found myself drawn to the characters who have found themselves caught in the middle and have been forced to rethink what they have long accepted as truths. Q:Your space battle scenes are fantastic. How do you write convincingly about something that is so far beyond current technology?
Where do the tactics of space warfare come from? What were your models in crafting these scenes? Characters like Luke and Leia, and most of the droids themselves, are strangely blind to this ongoing injustice. Is this something that future books will address? JL: Sadly, that is one of the plot lines that got jettisoned along the way. More to the point, I think that the films themselves hint at a keen awareness on the part of droids, and suggest that living beings have a way of taking technology for granted.
Q:After this long and difficult project, have you had your fill of Star Wars?
Star Wars the New Jedi Order the Unifying Force
Are you still a fan? Are those books still available? Any chance of additions to the series? JL: Several of the omnibuses were reprinted last year. As a reader or a viewer, you want to know that everything turned out all right in the end; in a sense, that everyone is going to live happily ever after. And more important: that the peak experiences of their lives, the accounts of their principal quests, have been immortalized, and can be revisited at the turn of a page or the press of a button.
JL: Yes. Read An Excerpt.
