In this way, the pirates could salvage the hyperdrives from the New Republic ships and use them to power the battle station. Jaina Solo managed to use the Force to alter Prann's recollection of his hyperspace jump coordinates, and the station ended up trying to jump through a Yuuzhan Vong interdictor. While Prann and his people weren't clear of the Yuuzhan Vong, their proximity to the interdictor allowed them to pound the ship and clear an escape route for the Galactic Alliance forces. Prann then tried to fight his way clear, but Jith demanded that he surrender the Golan station to the Galactic Alliance. He refused, but was eventually subdued. Once he was remvoed from control, Jith and the rest of the pirates agreed to turn the station over.

The leader of the Hill People, a young Galacian named Elan, was discovered to be the first child of the former King Cana, and thereby the rightful heir to the throne. Elan chose not to assume a position of rulership, but threw in her support - and that of the Hill People - to Wila Prammi.

this man served as the Corporate Sector Authority's Vice President fo Security, during the early years of the New Order. He was a tall, fatherly man with a full head of white hair, well-manicured and laquered finernails, and flashy clothes. Hirken was born to one of the oldest families to live on the planet Alsakan, in the Galactic Core. Mirkovig was the youngest of nine children, and led a pampered and spoiled life. His parents urged all of their children to uphold their family honor by choosing a calling and becoming the best at it. To this end, private tutors, fine schools, and unlimited expenses were at his disposal. His parents felt that Mirkovig was meant to do something truly wonderful. After reading about his ancestor, Arlo Hirken, and the adventures he had with Rin Assid, Mirkovig decided to pursue a career in economics and politics. He graduated with honors, and was hired by the Corporate Sector Authority. He was placed on the fast track to powerful positions, and was soon betrothed to the daughter of the Duke of Opatajji. Mirkovig and Neera were soon married, and her insensitivity placed undue demands on him to become more and more powerful and bring her more and more credits to spend. He was placed in charge of Corporate Security just before work began on the Stars' End penal colony on Mytus VII. Hirken oversaw construction of the facility with the Detention Task Force and Lady Chawkroft. Hirken created "the list" of candidates for incarceration at Stars' End, many of whom were vocal opponents of the Corporate Sector Authority. Other members on the list were individuals whom Hirken felt were a threat to his own position, the result of his own paranoid belief that his fellow Viceprexes were out to embarrass him. He was killed just after Han Solo managed to infiltrate Stars' End and trigger an explosion which launched the facility's central tower into orbit. Hirken was trying to escape without first helping his wife and the Security officers in the tower, and his wife shot him in the back with a blaster.

this insectile creature was one of Admiral Ackbar's aides, during the months following the Battle of Endor. Unknown to the members of the Alliance, however, was that fact that Hirog was actually the first officer of the Hiromi warship Kuratcha, and was the advance scout working to plan several invasions. It was Hirog who caused the misunderstanding between Kamida and Tippet, setting the Ewoks against the Lahsbees. Once his plan was in motion, Hirog made a transmission back to his leaders on Zeltros. Unfortunately, he was hit with a large stone that the Ewoks had hurled at Luke Skywalker, who used the Force to deflect the stone. Hirog, hidden in the trees, never saw the stone coming, and it knocked him flat. From that point onward, Hirog maintained a healthy fear of the Jedi Knights. He went ahead with his plans, however, and tried to set off a bomb which would destroy the entire Alliance command structure on Endor. The bomb was mistakenly activated by a stray blaster bolt, and Hirog tried to flee. He stumbled upon the duel between Tippet and a Huhk, and was swiftly incapacitated. The bomb was destoyed, preventing any further damage, and Hirog was abandoned by his fellow Hiromi. He managed to return home, however, and the minimal information he brought back gave the Hiromi enough data to launch an attack on the planet Zeltros. Their invasion was shortlived, however, when they found that both the Nagai and the Tofs were also attacking Zeltros. In the end, Hirog and the Hiromi agreed to ally themselves with Luke Skywalker and the Alliance of Free Planets.

They had long antennae, and were a deceitful race. What they couldn't own leagally, they tried to steal. However, the Hiromi had a very short attention span, and thoughts of food or play often interferred with the long-term plans of an invasion. They were bent on dominating their world, and any other worlds they located. Shortly after the Battle of Endor, the Hiromi set out to destroy the fledgeling Alliance of Free Worlds, in order to take control of the galaxy for themselves. Spies were planted throughout the galaxy, sowing dissent and pitting old enemies against each other. New conflicts were started with the simplest of rumors or misunderstandings, the work of Hiromi agents. The spy known as Hirog set the Ewoks against the Lahsbees with a well-crafted rumor. Their plans fell through when Hirog was discovered, but Hookyr the First was determined to conquer something. He tried to take Zeltros, but failed at that as well.
