this Ghtroc 720 freighter was owned by the Alliance, and loaned to Devon Fuller during the Galactic Civil War. It was an old ship that had been heavily modified and continually pushed to its limits.
this modified YT-1300 freighter was owned by the tramp freighter captain Trynic. The ship's engine section was modified to accept a larger hyperdrive, and the space between the forward mandibles was used as additional cargo space. A pair of turret-mounted laser cannons occupied the dorsal and ventral weapons pods, while a turret-mounted heavy blaster cannon replaced the portside escape pod.
this modified Barloz-class medium freighter was part of the small Alliance fleet of ships present in Tapani Sector after the Battle of Hoth. The ship's power generators had been greatly updated in order to accommodate additional weaponry. The Solar Flare was armed with a single quad turbolaser, a pair of double laser cannons, and a pair of concussion missile launchers. It employed the Corellian Engineering PL-8 Piercer missile.
located in the Nubian Palace resort, the Solar Gardens was an interior park nestled between two restaurants. In order to bring sunlight into the Gardens, a huge transparisteel wall reflected both sunlight and the Nubian landscape into the Gardens, providing the visitors to the restaurants with spectacular scenery.
this dilapidated Cuirilla-Raye Xylines Tug was owned by the Cragmoloid gambler Rooty. It was basically unarmed, but had a pair of tractor beam projectors which could be used to grapple with an attacking ship.
this unique starship design was developed by the Geonosian people as a gift to Count Dooku, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. It was created from a Punworcca 116-class sloop adapted to deploy an immense solar sail to take advantage of solar winds, as well as the small bits of interstellar energy. The main body of the ship was connected to the sails, which were actually more like scoops which caught the solar winds and dragged the ship behind it. These sails could also collect energy from the vacuum of space, allowing the ship to move about in deeper areas of the galaxy. The addition of the sail system gave the Punworcca 116-class fuselage to 16.76 meters, while the fully-deployed sails brought the overall length of the sailer to 105.16 meters. The interior of the sloop section was appointed to Dooku's refined tastes, and an FA-4 pilot droid was used to steer the ship. With the solar sails fully deployed and the ship at full power, the solar sailer could move across the galaxy with the efficiency of a Class 1.5 hyperdrive. The sails for the ship were acquired by Count Dooku in the Gree Enclave, and were much smaller than those used on other ships which sailed on the solar winds. It was powered by an unusual supralight emission system, although its exact function was never truly understood.
(TCG1, X2, SWDB, NEGV)
this pirate group was formed by Venslas Beeli and several other pirates, during the early days of the New Order. The Terrors were infamous for their ability to capture other starships, which was their primary method of acquiring new ships for their own use. The Terrors were captured by Imperial Captain Lev Kepzen and the Feral, and used in the effort to locate the Far Orbit. The Empire forced the Terrors to act like privateers hoping to help the Alliance out.

a flowering plant which grows to incredible heights.
this unusual crystal was known only to the ancient Jedi Knights, and was believed to have the ability to inflict additional damage when used against a Dark Jedi or Sith. Many of the solari crystals that existed were considered artifacts of the purest part of the Light Side of the Force. It was believed that only those Jedi who were pure of heart and spirit could use a lightsaber that employed a solari crystal.
Solassi Interzonal Challenge Match
this was one of the premiere gladiator walker fighting contests, staged on the Core Gladiator Walker League's professional circuit, during the height of the New Order.
this planet was unusual in that it orbited a system of ten suns, making it a bright and arid world. In the wake of the Battle of Endor, Solay was plunged into a period of anarchy, and it was this period in which Luke Skywalker made a visit to Solay. He was on a diplomatic mission to bring worlds together to discuss a new galactic government, and he arrived just in time to help Raggold and his rebels defeat the pro-Imperial leadership. Unfortunately, Raggold was killed by a traitor, and Luke set out to locate him. Solay was freed from King Blackart's grasp for a few short days before Imperial forces returned to the system and subjugated the planet once again.
this was a pistol-shaped soldering utility.
this was the generic term used to describe any of the Neimoidian harvester beetles that acted as a soldier within a hive. Soldier beetles were charged with protecting the hive and the queen hidden within it. During the height of the Clone Wars, these soldier beetles were used as infantry against the Grand Army of the Republic, when war broke out on Neimoidia and its purse-worlds.

one of six Kathol Republic Marauder-class corvettes sent to rescue the Bravado III from attack, shortly after the FarStar offered assistance. The 195-meter vessel was armed with eight double turbolaser cannons and three tractor beam projectors.
this battered Tac-Spec Footman droid was a companion of Fidelis for many years, while Fidelis was on Coruscant to watch over Whie Malreaux, during the last years of the Old Republic. Like Fidelis, Solis had been built centuries before. The pair were often seen playing a game of courtier dejarik, although Solis was often the loser. Because Solis had been alone on Coruscant, it had never received the regular upgrades that Fidelis had. Solis made sure that, with the meager resources it could acquire, that it obtained only the most useful upgrades, and logic and gaming strategy were never a high priority. When Whie was added to Master Yoda's mission to Vjun, both Fidelis and Solis managed to book passage aboard the Reasonable Doubt, so that Fidelis could continue to watch over his young charge. It was during this time that Solis' true programming came to the fore, when the droid realized that Whie and his companions were traveling with none other than Jedi Master Yoda. Solis made up a story about being a purser droid to gain access to Tallisibeth Enwandung-Esterhazy - otherwise known as Scout - and draw her away from Whie and allow Fidelis to talk to his young charge. Unfortunately for the Jedi, Solis provided all the information he learned about their location and destination to Separatist forces led by Asajj Ventress, allowing her to pinpoint their locations and attempt to assassinate Yoda. However, after Ventress was unable to capture Yoda on Phindar, Solis found himself on the short end of the deal. Count Dooku had severely chastised Ventress for wasting credits, and she refused to pay Solis for his information. Solis himself set out for Vjun, to square away the situation. He managed to locate them by following the death-cry of Fidelis, after the droid had been forced to destroy itself in order to save Whie. Upon entering the Crying Room, Solis chose to allow Scout and Whie to live, hoping it would make for better odds in bringing Ventress down. Unfortunately, Ventress had recovered the neural-net eraser Fidelis had been forced to use, and she managed to hit Solis squarely in the back with a blast, rendering him a useless pile of scrap before he could get a good shot off. As Solis fell to the ground, it managed to fire a wild blast from its mini rail cannon, striking Ventress and giving the Padawans a chance to escape.
this star was the central body in the Axum System, which contained the planet Anaxes and was located in the Core Worlds.
this free-drifting suuply station agreed to be a waystation along the Great River escape route devised by Luke Skywalker, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy.
a musical composition played by Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes.
this group of militant supporters of the Alliance rose up on the planet Corellia during the Galactic Civil War.
an old acquaintence of Han Solo, Chanto Solk made a great deal of money during the Galactic Civil War by anticipating the demand for starships, and selling to the side that needed them. When his health started to fail, he married Karia Ver Seryan, a life witch on Leria Kerlsil, about five years after the Battle of Endor. She Supported him for five years, and in return was named the heiress to his fortunes. Solk died four years later, when Karia was forced to withdraw her Support. Chanto Solk was Karia's 49th husband. Note that Cracken's Threat Dossier indicates Solk's first name was Chantu.
this scorched ball of rock was the innermost planet of the Brentaal System.
this man was easily distinguished by the cybernetic replacements he used for arms, because he made no pretense to disguise them. Sollaine chose not to have them covered with synthetic skin, making his appearance that much more fearsome. During the height of the New Order, Sollaine was in command of the Imperial Security Bureau, and was appointed by Emperor Palpatine himself to ferret out the location of Alliance spies who had infiltrated Imperial service. Sollaine was recommended for the work by Darth Vader, shortly before construction was completed on the Executor. In reality, Vader simply wanted Sollaine out of the way, and Sollaine never forgave the Dark Lord. Sollaine tried to intercept Rivoche Tarkin on Corulag, shortly before the Battle of Hoth, ignoring the list of suspected Alliance agents provided by Vader. When Vader learned of Sollaine's execution of Captain Nevik, the Dark Lord intercepted Sollaine at Corulag and executed him with a clean swipe of his lightsaber.
this was a common name used by the Geonosian race.
this hairstyle, popular during the last decades of the Old Republic, involved forming a female's hair into tall, looping forms atop their heads.
this Sullstan male was one of the few members of his race to actually be fired from the SoroSuub Corporation, although Benmub truly deserved his fate. At least, that's what most other Sullustans felt. During the early years of the New Order, Benmub was accused of accounting sabotage while in the employ of another corporation, although he never revealed this other employer during his trial. Later, he took a job as "Sullustan Relations Manager" with Sienar Fleet Systems on Sullust, an act that left other Sullustans with the impression that it was been Sienar who hired him for the sabotage. For his own part, Benmub never said anything more than he took the Sienar job for the challenge it presented, and he never discussed his trial.
Soll's Pay-Later Lot
this was one of the most "famous" repulsorlift vehicle parking lots found in the CoCo District of Coruscant, during the last years of the Old Republic. It was slated to be turned into an Ithorian museum, an event which was blocked by the Parking Conservation Fund.
this Feeorin was a member of the Antarian Rangers during the height of the Clone Wars. In the wake of the Clone Wars and the Jedi Purge of Emperor Palpatine, Solm and his followers were one of the few groups which maintained their allegiance to the Antarian Rangers while openly opposing the Empire.
this was one of the most common surnames found among the human population of Corellia.
Solo Embarrassment Factor
this was a private joke between Han Solo and his wife, Leia Organa-Solo. Coined by Leia, it referred to the way in which all of Han's plans to create a private vacation for them always ended up in ruin.
this was the nickname given to the first group of twelve Solo-class combat freighters, produced by the Metalsmiths' Guild of Vandelhelm as a gift to the New Republic. They were delivered on the tenth anniversary of the return of the Venerated Ones, Lilli and Endro. The ships were laden with alloys, ores, and construction materials, as well as valuable artwork, as a further gift to the New Republic. The Solo Fleet was turned over to Han Solo and Nien Nunb during an elaborate ceremony.
this was the name Han Solo gave to his makeshift holotheater on Kamar, during the early years of the New Order. It was little more than a natural amphitheater in the desert of the Kamar Badlands, in which Han used a Brosso Mark II holoprojector to display the features. It was short-lived, however, since the Kamarians destroyed it after Han failed to show Varn, World of Water, a feature about a water planet. The Kamarians came to consider the travelogue to be mak-tk-klp, and felt that Han had denied the Kamarians their fantasies.
this was the alias used by Han Solo, shortly after his marriage to Leia Organa, when he accompanied his wife to Tatooine to intercept a group of Imperial agents. Jaxal was a Devaronian, and Han was disguised with his own pair of horns.
this was the term used by Nom Anor and Vergere for their attempt to turn Jacen Solo away from the Jedi Order and the Force, and convert him to a believer in the True Gods of the Yuuzhan Vong. After Jacen's capture at Myrkr, he was subjected to months of torture within the Embrace of Pain. When he finally discovered a way to accept the pain for what it was and use it to his advantage, Vergere allowed him to escape the Embrace of Pain, only to strip him of his connection to the Force. He was then placed aboard the seedship which was developing the dhuryam specimens which would eventually seed Coruscant. He was continually faced with decisions about helping the rest of the slave population, and he eventually developed a relationship with his controlling dhuryam. According to Vergere, this put the Solo Project on target, but Nom Anor was skeptical. Master Shaper Ch'Gang Hool was livid at the intrusion of Solo's presence on the development of the dhuryam, but was forced to accept it. When Jacen discovered that there was a side of the Force he had never discovered, he began to influence the dhuryam in strange ways, which threatened the outcome of the tizo'pil Yun'tchilat. His violence nearly killed all the dhuryams, but Vergere interceded to stop him from killing the last World Brain. This near-disaster was all in the plans, according to Vergere, who then forced Ch'Gang Hool to accept Jacen's presence on the planet Coruscant, now reformed into a version of Yuuzhan'tar. While Solo managed to escape their grasp, the new Yuuzhan Vong homeworld was more or less intact. Nom Anor had fled when it seemed Jacen might destroy it, while Vergere joined Jacen in an attempt to leave the planet.
this method of gaining speed around a Yuuzhan Vong dovin basal mine was inadvertently discovered by Han Solo, during a mission to Bastion shortly after the Battle of Coruscant. The Solo Slingshot was similar in many respects to using the gravity of a planet to "slinghsot" a ship into a higher orbit. It involved diving a ship directly toward the dovin basal, keeping enough power and control to break off the flight at the last moment and allowing the dovin basal's gravity to fling the ship in an unexpected direction. This allowed New Republic ships to gain a measure of surprise on the Yuuzhan Vong. However, the Yuuzhan Vong began to use the tactic themselves, gaining a measure of surprise on the Republic's forces during the siege at Bilbringi.
this was a model of personal location device produced by Saladar Systems. The Solo Strobe was developed to help a lost being indicate their position to a rescue team. In a pinch, it could also be used to blind an attacker.
Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo's second son, Anakin was born on Nespis VIII about a year and a half after his siblings, Jaina and Jacen. He was named for this maternal grandfather, Anakin Skywalker. He was incredibly strong in the Force, especially for a child so young. By the time he was three, Anakin's gifts had become obvious to his uncle, Luke Skywalker. By the time he was seven, he had demonstrated a remarkable ability to make anything mechanical work, regardless of whether he understands the device's purpose or its components. His siblings, Jacen and Jaina, have discovered his abilities, and use them to bypass locks and security cameras. They even tried once to have Anakin create a working droid from various scrap components. Unfortunately, the primary motivator Jacen found was faulty, and the droid blew up. Anakin figured prominently in the discovery and activation of some of the Corellian planetary repulsors during the reign of Thrackan Sal-Solo on Corellia. He continued to show great aptitude with the Force, and when his siblings returned from their initial studies on Yavin 4, Anakin was allowed to go as well. He was eleven at the time, and was immediately befriended by Tahiri Veila. Together, they discovered the Golden Globe beneath the Palace of the Woolamander and the existence of the ancient Jedi Master Ikrit. After a great deal of thought and meditation on the Globe, Anakin and Tahiri were able to penetrate it and release the Massassi spirits trapped within. He returned to Yavin 4 following the attack by the Shadow Academy, and helped rebuild the Great Temple by viewing its rubble as a huge puzzle to be solved. Anakin, as well as his brother Jacen, trained directly with Luke, when Luke began moving the new Jedi Knights back to the pre-Empire format of teaching. Both brothers had different ideas on what the future of the Jedi should be. Jacen agreed with Luke, that the formation of a new Jedi Council would help bring the vigilantes under control. Jacen also believed more in the spiritual aspects of the Force, while Anakin held to the physical uses of the Force. They clashed often, claiming their intense lightsaber duels were simply training. When the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy, Anakin was forced to act on his beliefs, and doggedly protected Mara Jade Skywalker on Dantooine. After saving her, Anakin learned that he was needed at Centerpoint Station. Archaeologists and engineers at the Station had been trying to reactivate it, but discovered that the Station had attuned itself to Anakin's fingerprints, brainwaves, and DNA. It wouldn't activate without him. The New Republic hoped to use the repulsors onboard the massive station to wipe out the Yuuzhan Vong fleet, but Anakin refused to be the wielder of such power. Thackan Sal-Solo took the shot instead, but only succeeded in destroying much of the New Republic's fleet at Fondor, including most of the Hapan fleet which supported it. Thrackan was portrayed by the media as a hero, while the Jedi Knights were vilified for their lack of action. In the wake of the Battle of Fondor, Anakin's training was taken up by Luke himself, in an effort to refocus Anakin's powers. Anakin grew stronger and more respected among the Jedi, and was eventually chosen to lead the strike team which was dispatched to Myrkr to eliminate the voxyn queen. However, once aboard the Baanu Rass, Anakin took an amphistaff wound to the abdomen, and found himself dying. However, his connection to the Force remained strong, and he gathered energy around him like a magnet. Anakin became glowing extension of the Force itself, almost invincible as he cut down Yuuzhan Vong in order to get his friends closer to the voxyn queen. However, the intense energy quickly consumed him, and Anakin died shortly after ensuring that Tahiri was safe. His physical form suddenly radiated an intense light shortly before he died. Anakin's body was recovered by the Jedi survived the assault in the Baanu Rass, in an effort to bury him within the Republic. Anakin was laid to rest on Hapes, where his physical form disintegrated into thousands of motes of firelight when his bier was lit.

Solo, Berethon e
one of Han's early ancestors, he introduced democracy to the Corellian Empire. He lived nine generations before Han, some 300 years before Han was born.
born on the planet Duro to the pretender Korol Solo, Dalla Solo was believed to have been Han Solo's grandfather. He was forced to change his name to Dalla Suul to avoid notice following the hanging of his father. He was a kidnapper and pirate, known to the galaxy as Dalla the Black. His illegitimate daughter was Threkin Horm's mother. Han's true lineage was later discovered to have descended from Denn Solo.
this man was a native of the planet Tralus. Denn Solo never liked human servants, and always had droids working for him. He married Tira Gama, and she was pregnant when a group of pirates attacked the outling worlds of the Corellian System. She gave birth to twins just before the attack on Tralus. She managed to flee with a daughter, whom she later named Tiion, and they hid in the hills. Denn fled with a son, but they were lost in the battle. After Thrackan Sal-Solo and Han Solo discussed it, they came to the conclusion that Denn Solo was actually Han's grandfather, and that the son he fled with was Jonash Solo. Jonash later became han Solo's father.
Han Solo was born on Corellia. He was a good student, and caught the eye of Imperial Senator Garm Bel Iblis with his pointed questions during a school political rally when Han was 11. Some of his friends goaded him to ask Bel Iblis about the growing xenophobia in the Senate, as well as the apparent internal corruption in the Old Republic. This helped Han get an appointment to the Academy on Carida, where he excelled. Following his graduation, he was considered for Naval Officer's training, but he was sidetracked by Imperial atrocities against the Wookiee race. On a particular mission, Han tried successfully to rescue a Wookiee slave named Chewbacca. Chewbacca claimed a life-debt to Han even as Han was receiving a dishonorable discharge from the Imperial Navy. They were forced to flee Imperial control and live their lives at the fringes of the lawful world. For a number of years, Han tried to shake Chewie, who was always at his side. Even though Han took the worst kinds of jobs, Chewie stuck with him. Eventually, Han realized the depth of a Wookiee life debt, and accepted Chewie as part of his life. Han was awarded a second-level set of Corellian Bloodstripes for his bravery and selflessness in rescuing Chewbacca. (It is unknown at this time how Han earned his first-level Bloodstripes.) They turned to smuggling, using Han's starship knowledge and Chewie's muscular and mechanical skills to quickly gain recognition in the smugglers' world. Han's skills at gambling became equally sharp, and in a famous Sabacc match, he managed to win the smuggling ship Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian. With a ship and a partner, Han had many adventures. He spent a number of years based on Nar Shaddaa, working with Shug Ninx and falling in and out of love with Salla Zend. He left that life behind to work in the Corporate Sector, and spent a number of years there with Doc, Jessa, and Roa. After all these adventures, Han ended up in the domain of Moruth Doole and Jabba the Hutt. Han was one of many pilots who were contracted to make the Kessel Run and smuggle spice out from beneath Imperial control. Han made the run a number of times, once in under twelve parsecs. However, his last run almost cost him his life. He was set up by Doole, who was in the process of being set up by Jabba the Hutt, and the Imperials were tipped of as to the time of Han's Run. In order to escape the Imperials, Han was forced to dump Jabba's spice and flee. This earned him a death mark from Jabba, and Han was again forced to go underground. In an effort to make some extra credits and pay off Jabba, Han accepted Obi-Wan Kenobi's offer of 17,000 credits to transport Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, R2-D2 and C-3PO to Alderaan. The mission was sidetracked as the Millennium Falcon was captured by the first Death Star. Han and Luke rescued Princess Leia Organa, and brought her to Yavin 4. Han tried to leave with his reward money and pay Jabba off, but his conscience interfered again. He destroyed Darth Vader's wingmen and gave Luke the time he needed to destroy the Death Star. Following the Battle of Yavin, Han spent time with the Alliance, helping them gain key victories against the Empire while trying to stay one step ahead of Jabba's mercenaries. He was even promoted to the rank of General in the Alliance. After a close call with a bounty hunter on Ord Mantell, Han again tried to return and pay Jabba, only to be forced to Cloud City while escaping Darth Vader and the Imperial Navy. During this time, he and Princess Leia began to fall in love. This trip reunited Han with Lando Calrissian, but led to Han's being tracked by Boba Fett, imprisoned in carbonite, and returned to Jabba for the reward money. Han was freed by an elaborate plot by Luke Skywalker on Tatooine, and Han rejoined the Alliance to lead the ground assault on the forest moon of Endor. His timely destruction of the second Death Star's main shield helped the Alliance destroy the space station and the Emperor, thus ending the Imperial Civil War and restoring the Republic. Following the formation of the New Republic, Han and Leia tried to continue their relationship, but Leia's duties often interfered. Han resigned his commission with the New Republic, but stayed on as a freelance pilot. Following the Battle of Bakura and the fighting on Dathomir, Han and Leia were finally married. Their marriage produced twin children - Jaina, a daughter; and Jacen, a son - as well as a second son, Anakin. Leia's Force sensitivity was passed onto all of the children, and this made them prime targets for the Jedi clone Joruus C'Baoth and the reborn Emperor Palpatine. Han and Leia continued to protect their children against the Imperial threat. During a vacation from his wife's Republic world, Han and Chewie were shot down over Kessel, and captured by Moruth Doole's forces. He was forced to work the spice mines for Doole, which led him to discover Kyp Durron and the Maw Installation. Han's friendship with Kyp helped avoid serious damage when Kyp was corrupted by Exar Kun's spirit. Despite the fact that Han had resigned from service to the Republic after his marriage to Leia, he was often pressed into service. One of those times occurred during the Yevethan Purge. After Etahn A'baht was unable to blockade the Koornacht Cluster, Han was temporarily promoted to Commodore and placed in command of the Fifth Battle Group. This move was designed to keep Leia's supporters, as well as the supporters of Borsk Fey'lya, from arguing over the position and focused on the battle. However, the deceit of Tig Peramis provided this information to Nil Spaar, who sent several of his Interdictor cruisers to intercept Han's shuttle before it reached the fleet. Han was tortured and interrogated by Spaar himself. Later, Han was instrumental in the resolution of the problems in the Corellian Sector, overcoming the Human League and the actions of his cousin, Thrackan Sal-Solo. Han and Chewbacca continued to serve the New Republic, despite the fact that they had resolved their commissions long ago. At fifty-four years old, however, Han met his match when the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy. During a rescue mission to Sernipdal, Chewbacca was stranded on the planet while trying to ensure that Han and his son, Anakin Solo, made it to the Millennium Falcon. Chewie died saving them, and Han immediately blamed Anakin, who had been piloting the Falcon. He soon realized that there was no fault to be givenin Chewie's death, since the Wookiee was simply honoring a life-debt with all his strength and energy. This did nothing to soothe Han's heart, though, and he distanced himself from his friends and family while trying to come to terms with his grief. He found an outlet when Roa asked him to help locate Reck Desh. Han took off for Ord Mantell, only to have Roa captured by the Yuuzhan Vong. As Han fled the Jubilee Wheel, he found an unexpected ally and friend in Droma, a nomadic Ryn. However, Han's relationship with Leia deteriorated when he explained that he was headed back out to find Roa and help Droma locate his family. Their estrangement only worsened in the aftermath of the Battle of Fondor. Han remained behind, helping to get Droma and his family settled on Abregado-rae, then helping Roa recover from his captivity. Leia continued to work with SELCORE, and refused to meet Han on Coruscant. After the loss of Kalarba, Han ran into Leia on Duro, and they decided to stop being foolish and restore their lives. Their relationship continued to deepen once again, despite the loss of their son Anakin at Myrkr. The Solos threw themselves into the battle against the Yuuzhan Vong, and Han found himself volunteering for some of the most dangerous and crazy of assignments. Han and Leia were instrumental in the rescue of Thorsh from Selvaris, and later the rescue of Judder Page and several more Selvaris prisoners. After watching Caluula Station be destroyed, Han again volunteered for a dangerous mission, this time to return to Caluula and destroy the yammosk which had been installed there. However, as soon as they reached the yammosk, Team Meloque was attacked by four Yuuzhan Vong Slayers. As he tried to defend leia, Han was bitten in the neck by one of the augmented amphistaffs and poisoned. However, something about Caluula's environment reduced the potency of the amphistaff venom, and Han soon recovered. Han returned to Coruscant with his family during the final battle against the Yuuzhan Vong, working with the Jedi Knights and an Alliance infiltration team to reach the Citadel and eliminate Shimrra and Onimi.

Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo's first son, Jacen was born five minutes after his sister, Jaina. The twins were born on Coruscant some five years after the Battle of Endor, in the midst of Grand Admiral Thrawn's attempt to take control of the galaxy. He was very strong with the Force, and had the special ability to communicate with animals. When he and his sister turned 14, they were allowed to attend Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy on Yavin 4. While there, Jacen developed an extensive collection of the jungle moon's exotic fauna, many of which escaped the cages built for them by Jaina. When he finally constructed his own lightsaber, Jacen chose focusing stones which produced a glowing, emerald green blade. He later trained directly with Luke himself, as Luke began moving the new Jedi Knights back to the pre-Empire style of teaching. Luke also trained Jacen's brother, Anakin, although both brothers had different ideas on what the future of the Jedi should be. Jacen agreed with Luke, that the formation of a new Jedi Council would help bring the vigilantes under control. Jacen also believed more in the spiritual aspects of the Force, while Anakin held to the physical uses of the Force.They fought often, verbally and with lightsabers, both claiming their intense sessions were simply training. He traveled with his younger brother, Anakin, to Centerpoint Station, just before the Battle of Fondor, but urged Anakin not to use the Force to fire it. When Thrackan Sal-Solo fired it instead, and nearly destroyed the combined Republic and Hapan fleets, Jacen felt himself lost in his struggle to understand the Force. After having an intense vision of the galaxy, teetering on a single balance point that he alone controlled, Jacen tried to stop using the Force altogether. His family tried to bring him out of this mental state, but Jacen doggedly refused. However, when his mother was threated by the Yuuzhan Vong on Duro, Jacen realized that he had reached the balance point in his vision. Drawing on the Force, he managed to escape with his mother and get her to safety. During the escape, Jacen badly injured the Yuuzhan Vong Warmaster, Tsavong Lah, earning him a position of hatred among the alien invaders. When the Yuuzhan Vong learned that Jacen and Jaina were twins - an event which was rare in Yuuzhan Vong births, and indicated an omen from the gods - both siblings were targeted for capture and eventual sacrifice. Shortly afterward, Jacen and his siblings joined the Jedi strike team which was sent ot Myrkr to locate and destroy the voxyn queen. When Anakin was killed aboard the Baanu Rass, Jacen found that his sister blamed him for Anakin's death, despite the fact that Anakin gave specific orders to reach the queen. Eventually, the Jedi were able to defeat the voxyn queen, but Jacen was captured when Vergere betrayed him to the Yuuzhan Vong. Despite her changing allegiance, Vergere provided Jacen with several of her healing "tears," to help prepare him for the torture he was about to receive after his capture. The rest of the strike team fled, vowing to rescue Jacen at the soonest possible moment. However, once in the Hapes Cluster aboard the Trickster, Jaina and the others received a wave of anguish through the Force that seemed to indicate Jacen's death. Jacen, however, had been taken aboard a Yuuzhan Vong seedship and secured in a modified Embrace of Pain by Vergere, as part of something known as the Solo Project. Vergere and Nom Anor hoped to turn him to the Yuuzhan Vong's True Way, and he was held in the Embrace of Pain for many months. Vergere, in an effort to eliminate his reliance on the Force, took away his link to the Force and forced him to recognize other ways of tapping into its energy. This was the "death" Jaina and other Jedi felt. Jacen began to understand the pain could eventually be overcome and used to his advantage, and that the Force was not simply black and white. Vergere's lessons taught him that the Yuuzhan Vong existed in another facet of the Force's energy, and that there were more grey areas than Jacen had ever believed possible. Upon his release from the Embrace of Pain, Jacen discovered he was aboard a seedship, where he was bound as a slave to an immature dhuryam. Jacen developed a relationship with the future World Brain, and eventually discovered that he could tap resources within the Force that he never knew existed. When the tizo'pil Yun'tchilat occurred, Jacen chose his time to strike at his captors. Never truly turned to the True Way, Jacen tried to destroy the World Brains before one could be inserted into Coruscant's new environment. Vergere interferred, playing on his emotions to stop Jacen from killing the dhuryam which had become his "friend". Jacen awoke to find himself on Coruscant, now renamed Yuuzhan'tar in honor of the original Yuuzhan Vong homeworld, along with Vergere. They were hunted by the warriors assigned to Master Shaper Ch'Gang Hool, and forced to accept the Ture Way. He then put into motion his next plant, tocapture Ganner Rhysode. Ganner had been searching for Jacen, who lured him into the chamber of a camp ship and captured him. Once on Coruscant, Jacen subtly explained that he was worked with the Yuuzhan Vong in order to gain their confidence. Them he planned to use the World Brain to act as his agent on Coruscant. Ganner gave his life to keep Jacen alive long enough to gain access to the World Brain, which had been the dhuyram he befriended. Jacen asked the World Brain to help him monitor the situation on Coruscant, then he fled the planet with Vergere. Jacen later returned to Master Skywalker, who accepted his return and allowed him to return to work with the Jedi Knights. He tried to listen to Vergere's words and advice on the nature of his destiny within the Force, but when his sister Jaina was in danger during the Battle of Ebaq, Jacen blindly raced to her rescue. He was trapped by Yuuzhan Vong in the mines of Ebaq 9, and only Vergere's sacrifice allowed him to survive. He eventually reached Jaina, where they were attacked by Tsavong Lah. Jaina managed to defeat the Warmaster in combat, and the twins were rescued by New Republic forces. Jacen then commited himself to reconciling the Yuuzhan Vong with his definition of the Force, and vowed to honor Vergere's memory by working to fulfill his destiny. As part of this personal mission, Jacen agreed to accompany his Uncle Luke and Aunt Mara on a mission into the Unknown Regions, in a search for the planet Zonama Sekot. He had learned of the planet from Vergere, and hoped that his connection to her would help their cause. Upon finding the planet in the Klasse Ephemora System, Sekot initially refused to help them. In a series of devious tests, the living part of the planet separated Jacen from Luke and tried to learn their true motives for coming to Zonama Sekot. Eventually, both Luke and Jacen convinced the planet they were seeking a peaceful end to the conflict with the Yuuzhan Vong. Sekot then agreed to accompany them back to the galaxy, in an effort to find a way to end the war. Upon reverting to realspace near Coruscant, Jacen found himself once again in the company of his family. Han, Leia, and Jaina had been dispatched to meet them, and the family was briefly reunited before returning to the war. Jacen and his sister accompanied their uncle Luke to the surface of Coruscant, in an effort to gain access to the Citadel and bring Supreme Overlord Shimrra to justice. Jacen was able to reach the mind of the World Brain which was controlling the planet, and was able to calm it down and put a stop to the destruction it was causing on the surface. Upon entering Shimrra's throneroom, they were beset by a group of fifteen Slayers, and only Jacen's link to the World Brain allowed them any measure of success. When Jaina set out to capture Onimi, Jacen found himself facing the remaining Slayers, who had abandoned Luke so that Shimrra himself could destroy the Jedi Master. After Shimrra's defeat, Jacen left Luke in Mara's capable hands and set out to locate his sister, only to be assailed by Onimi. Jacen suddenly realized that Onimi was perhaps the most powerful of all Yuuzhan Vong, since he had managed to tap into the Force in a way that no other individual could. His own Shaping had somehow reconnected him to the Force, and gave him powerful abilities as a Shaper and as a fighter. Jacen was forced to fend off all manner of projectiles, then had to find a way to neutralize the poisons that Onimi created to kill him. Drawing on the power of the Force, Jacen understood that only a complete surrender to its energy would save. In this state, Jacen was able to fight off whatever Onimi threw at him, realizing that he had finally found the truth about the Force and the way in which a Jedi should connect to it. He became simply a living conduit for the power of the Force, embracing neither good nor evil but simply existing within it. In this manner, Jacen was able to eradicate the evil and greed within Onimi, killing the Shamed One in the process. With the Yuuzhan Vong surrender at Coruscant, the war was ended and the Galactic Alliance set out to restore as much of it as possible. Jacen decided to set out in search of other Force users - such as the Jensaarai, the Sunesi, and the Fallanassi - to deepen his already vast knowledge of the Unifying Force. This exploration allowed him to acknowledge the call of UnuThul but resist becoming a Joiner, when the Colony began its expansion in the Unknown Regions. He remained neutral in the growing conflict, hoping that the Force would guide him to a resolution. However, he experienced a terrible vision of the galaxy in flames, which left him without any clear path. Added to his confusion was the revelation that an evening spent with Tenel Ka at the start of the Qoribu Crisis had produced a daughter, which Jacen discovered about a year later. While trying to piece all of this together, Jacen realized that the Force was calling on him to save his daughter - and the rest of the galaxy - from destruction at the hands of the Killiks. He then turned his efforts to eradicating the Dark Nest before it could launch the war he had seen in his vision. He agreed to accompany Jaina on a mission to disable Supply Depot Thrago, in an effort to provoke the Chiss into attacking the Colony, knowing that the Chiss had built up enough military power to defeat the Killiks. All the Chiss needed was an excuse to launch their attack. Jaina and Jacen were able to gather several Jedi together to launch the mission, but Jaina recoiled when she discovered that Jacen was also planning to exterminate the Colony to avoid seeing his vision come true.

Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo's first child, Jaina was born on Coruscant some five years after the Battle of Endor. She was five minutes older than her twin brother, Jacen, and was equally strong with the Force. She had certain mechanical abilities, much like her father, but not as strong as her brother, Anakin. When she and Jacen attended Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy on Yavin 4, at the age of 14, she collected all sorts of old technology from the original Alliance base, using some of it to create cages for Jacen's exotic collection of creatures. Others she kept to see if she can repair them. Jaina created a lightsaber of violet light while studying at Yavin 4. She later trained directly with Mara Jade, after Mara's marriage to Luke, when Luke began moving the new Jedi Knights back to the pre-Empire style of teaching. A real student of the Force, Jaina found it hard to be around her mother when she tried to use the Force. Jaina felt that Leia used her skills with the Force as a kind of toy, nothing really serious and often clumsy in operation. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Jaina put her skills with the Force to work as a member of Rogue Squadron, flying an X-Wing into battle against the aliens. She survived a number of engagements, but was forced to eject from her fighter during the defense of Kalarba. She was caught in the explosion of the Champion, and suffered blinding damage to her eyes which left her with fuzzy vision for several weeks. She was shipped off to Duro, to make room for more desparate injuries, and helped her father in the evacuation of Settlement Thirty-two. Over time, her eyesight returned, and Jaina longed to get back into the cockpit. However, her status as a Jedi Knight forced Gavin Darklighter to place her on extended leave, in order to appease the politicians of the Senate. Jaina agreed to be part of the Jedi strike team which was dispatched to Myrkr to eliminate the voxyn queen, along with both of her brothers. She was unprepared for the losses the Jedi took just to infiltrate the Baanu Rass, and was was overcome when Anakin was killed aboard the worldship. She openly blamed Jacen for Anakin's death, claiming that Jacen left him to die. In her anger over the loss of Anakin and her blame of Jacen, Jaina turned to the Dark Side of the Force. She conjured up an intense storm of Force lightning when a Yuuzhan Vong nearly killed her, utterly destroying the alien attacker without remorse. After finally destroying the voxyn queen, the Jedi were forced to flee the worldship in order to return to Eclipse. Jacen, however, had been captured by the double-crossing Vergere, and Jaina was forced to leave him with the Yuuzhan Vong in order to save the rest of the team. She vowed to rescue her brother, despite her earlier animosity toward him. The Jedi stole the frigate Ksstarr, which Jaina later renamed the Trickster, and headed to Hapes. There, they hoped to learn as much as they could about the frigate and Yuuzhan Vong technology. However, Jaina became caught up in the political intrigue of Hapan life, and the former Queen Mother Ta'a Chume chose Jaina to server as her protégé. Jaina didn't fully realize her position, but used it to gain access to Sinsor Khal and the scientists on Gallinore, who created lab-grown version of Yuuzhan Vong yorik coral. As Jaina sank deeper into the plans of Ta'a Chume, her friends worried that she was slipping further toward the Dark Side of the Force, especially after she agreed to train under Kyp Durron. After the fall of Coruscant, Jaina was groomed by the Inner Circle on Borleias to become the incarnate version of Yun-Harla, in an effort to trick the Yuuzhan Vong. It was during this time that she also admitted her feelings for Jagged Fel. Jaina was also promoted to the rank of Major in the New Republic military for her work at Hapes and Borleias, then to Lieutenant Colonel following the Battle of Ebaq. She was given command of a full battle group during the defense of Esfandia when, as the ranking Jedi Knight, she was requested by Captain Todra Mayn to coordinate the combined forces of the Galactic Alliance and the Imperial Remnant. After the near defeat at Bilbringi, as part of Operation Trinity, Jaina was recalled to Mon Calamari. As the Galactic Alliance planned its final move in the ongoing war - a strike at Coruscant itself - Jaina was reunited with her parents. Together, they were dispatched to Coruscant ahead of the main fleet, when the living planet Zonama Sekot suddenly reappeared in orbit between Coruscant and Muscave. The Solo family was briefly reunited on Zonama Sekot before returning to the war. Jaina and her brother accompanied their uncle Luke to the surface of Coruscant, in an effort to gain access to the Citadel and bring Supreme Overlord Shimrra to justice. Jacen was able to reach the mind of the World Brain which was controlling the planet, and was able to calm it down and put a stop to the destruction it was causing on the surface. Upon entering Shimrra's throneroom, they were beset by a group of fifteen Slayers, and only Jacen's link to the World Brain allowed them any measure of success. Following the will of the Force, Jaina left the main battle and set out to capture Onimi, who had fled the chamber. She failed to consider the Shamed One's ingenuity, and Onimi was able to subdue Jaina with ease when he used his fang to inject her with a mild toxin. He then dragged her into the command chamber of the Citadel's escape craft and set out to flee Coruscant. Jacen, however, pursued them through the Citadel and into the escape craft, confronting Onimi with the pure power of the Force. Jaina tried to lend her brother some help, but Jacen fought on his own, allowing Jaina to concentrate on healing herself. After the deaths of Onimi and Shimrra, the rest of the Yuuzhan Vong force at Coruscant surrendered to the Galactic Alliance, bringing the war to an end. Despite Jag's admission of his love for her, Jaina decided that it was not yet time for her to settle down. She told Jag that she had to ensure that the galaxy would be a better place for future generations, especially her own children. Jaina and Jag shared one final, passionate kiss before going their separate ways. Five years later, when UnuThul sent out his call for help, Jaina was among seven young Jedi who dropped whatever mission they were currently on and traveled to the Unknown Regions to answer the call. She joined the Colony and led much of the effort to defend the various hives from the Chiss, and was dismayed when UnuThul demanded that the Jedi leave the Colony before they were injured in the coming battle with the Chiss. Because of his joining with the Unu hive, Jaina found herself suddenly sharing emotions with Zekk, and the pair realized that there was a deep level of attraction between them. Although nothing came of their pairing following the Dance of Union, they discovered that their relationship had been moved to a much deeper level than ever before. They remained connected in ways that were both exciting and frightening, but neither Jaina nor Zekk tried to break it off. When the resolution of the Qoribu Crisis, Jaina and Zekk worked together on many missions to protect the Galactic Alliance, but Jaina found herself in a bad position after Jacen had a vision in which the galaxy was in flame because of the growth of the Gorog hive. She had convinced him to accompany her Jedi on a secret mission to attack Supply Depot Thrago, in an effort to make the Chiss think that the attack had come from the Gorog. Jaina and Zekk simply wanted to eliminate the Gorog without harming the rest of the Colony. Jacen, however, believed that the entire Colony had to be eliminated in order to avoid any future trouble. The knowledge of Jacen's plans hit Jaina like a blaster bolt, and although they completed the mission at Thrago, she vowed never to work him again.

this street urchin from the Corellian sector of Nar Shaddaa once claimed to be a relative of Han Solo's. He claimed that his father, Renn, was Han's father's second cousin. Han didn't believe for a minute that the youth was his relative, but his own years of eking out an existence as a beggar told him to take Jarik in and keep him off the streets. Roa eventually confirmed that Jarik was nothing more than a street kid. Jarik accompanied Han and Chewbacca on many adventures in the Bria, including several Kessel Runs. When Han decided that he had to leave Nar Shaddaa to escape an impending marriage to Salla Zend, Jarik stayed behind to pursue a new girlfriend and a job at Shug's Spacebarn. Although the girlfriend left him, Jarik continued to work for Shug Ninx. When Han returned to recruit smugglers fo the assault on Ylesia, Jarik joined up, having lost his girlfriend but maintaining his skills.

Solo-class Combat Freighter
originally designed by the Metalsmith's Guild of Vandelhelm, on the orders of the Venerated One known as Lilli, the Solo-class combat freighter was named in honor fo Han Solo. Developed during the early years of the New Republic, the Solo-class freighter was manufactured jointly by the Republic Engineering Corporation and SoroSuub, with facilities provided by the Fondor Independent Shipyards, and was based on the prototypes produced on Vandelhelm. It was first marketed as "a revolution in armored transports." The idea behind the Solo-class combat freighter was to create a cargo ship that could more than handle its own against enemy ships, whether pirates or Imperials. The hull was double-plated with titanium alloys that could withstand a great deal of fire, and was formed around a lightweight plasteel superstructure. It was armed with six ball-mounted dual turbolaser cannons, three on each side, giving the ship complete coverage and eliminating any vulnerable spots. A pair of concussion missile launchers provided additional armament. The Solo-class combat freighter measured 96.5 meters in length, required a crew of six to operate, and could accommodate up to ten passengers and 22,000 metric tons of cargo. If the holds were empty, the ship could transport up to 100 troops. Despite its ability to move through space without an escort, many critics felt that the Solo-class combat freighter was overarmed and a waste of credits, as they carried a hefty price tag.

this Lutrillian was a veteran of the Old Republic military who retired from active duty following the Clone Wars. During the Clone Wars, Solomahal earned the rank of General, and was assigned as the commander of the Republic's secret base on Azure. He was credited with liberating the Wode from enslavement, as well as destroying the 2nd Regiment of the Sun Guard. He was also considered something of a hero for his part in the Battle of Azure Spaceport, after he destroyed Talesan Fry's codebreaker before it could fall into the hands of the Separatists. Although he was captured during the fighting, Solomahal escaped just a few days later and was given a new command. After the war, he continued to work as a scout, working in the Outer Rim Territories to avoid Imperial notice. Solomahal operated a YV-888 known as the QuadStar, and took on work whenever he could. However, as the galaxy plunged into the Galactic Civil War, Solomahal's reputation diminished greatly, and he was forced to move around the Greater Javin area in search of work. Among the jobs he took on was the transport of the Nothoiin refugee Covah to a remote location in the Greater Javin region of the galaxy. What many beings of the day didn't know - or didn't remember - was that Solomahal was actually a hero of the Clone Wars. After a while, Solomahal ended up on Tatooine, where he met up with the Brizzit known as Tzizvvt. Although Solomahal doubted Tzizvvt's claim to have been a professor of xenoarchaeology, he quickly recognized that the Brizzit had a knack for locating treasure. Solomahal agreed to fund a mission to locate the mysterious Eye of the Beyonder, in exchange for accompanying Tzizvvt on the mission. Just before the Battle of Yavin, the two set off to locate the relic and seek out the rumored treasure it pointed to.

Solo's End Run
this was a spaceflight maneuver developed by Han Solo for getting out of the Sevarcos System, especially during the Imperial occupation of the system. It involved a spacer turning off his ship's transponder system after leaving Sevarcos and heading toward the system's asteroid belt. Shortly before entering the asteroids, the spacer launched a remote probe that transmitted his starship's true transponder codes, causing any pursuit to chase after the probe and not the starship.

a Jedi Knight, Kam was the son of a Jedi slain by Darth Vader. He spent nearly thirty years hiding from the Empire in the most remote parts of the galaxy. When his whereabouts were discovered by a group of Dark Jedi, he was tortured and forced to embrace the Dark Side of the Force. The reborn Emperor used him as one of his personal Dark Side Elite on Byss. When Luke Skywalker first met him on Nespis VIII, Luke sensed his strength in the Force behind the Dark Side facade, and challenged Kam to a game of Lightsider. Luke won, and convinced Kam to return to the Light Side. Kam eventually returned to Luke, joining the Jedi candidates on Yavin 4. He became one of Luke's most gifted apprentices, and became a full Jedi Knight several years after the death of Palpatine's clones. Kam fell in love with Tionne, and the two were married shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy. They acted as the administrators of the Yavin 4 facility for many years, and Kam himself presided over a solemn Jedi wedding for Luke and Mara Jade, before the pair were wedded in a public ceremony on Coruscant. Kam and Tionne served Luke as the wards of the youngest Jedi trainees during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, spiriting the children away from Yavin 4 aboard the Errant Venture and eventually settling them into a new home at the Maw Installation. Ultimately, Kam and Tionne were among the handful of Jedi Knights to survive the conflict with the Yuuzhan Vong. It was Kam's suggestion to Luke that the Jedi Knights return to the planet Ossus to rebuild their new Jedi Order, an idea that Luke eventually agreed to.

this carnivore was related to the raen sovra, but lived far from the electrically-active vinna forests on Tenek. Known as a choker, this creature has a muscular body which is uses to constrict its prey. Somagos would hang in the branches of trees and wait for prey to wander by. It would drop out of the tree and latch onto its intended prey with its sharp claws. Once attached, the somago would entwine its body about its victim and begin to constrict its muscles, effectively choking the prey. There were several forms of somago, including the sheet somago, saddle somago, and tapestry somago, each identified by its body shape and attack method. The rarest form is the helmet somago, which has a bell-shaped body which was adapted to capturing humanoid prey. Xenobiologists specualte that the helmet somago is an evolutionary throwback to the time when humanoid life lived on Tenek. Once the somago chokes the life out of its prey, it then fed on the dead body with several small mouths on the underside of its body.

this woman was one of the many Jedi Padawans who were away from Coruscant when a 200-member team was dispatched to the planet Geonosis, during the opening battle of the Clone Wars. Her former Master, Lura Tranor, was among the Jedi who traveled to Geonosis, although Master Tranor was unfortunately killed in the fighting. Jyl herself arrived after the main battle, to help clean up any pockets of resistance and gather intelligence on Count Dooku and the leaders of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. She received a field promotion to Jedi Knight, and was given command of a squad of clone troopers, to seek out any survivors and work with Doctor Frayne to ensure that weapons technology remained behind. Her inexperience nearly cost her when she agreed to test out a new clone trooper helmet Frayne had developed. The helmet contained a mild poison that quickly rendered Somtay unconscious. She managed to escape, collecting Naj Pandoor along the way. His sweet-talking and smooth manner grated on her nerves, especially when he suggested that she leave the Jedi Order and join him as a smuggler. They located Doctor Frayne's body shortly afterward, although it was in pieces. They discovered that she had been attacked by a female nexu, and were forced to fight their way past it and its cubs. In an underground lab, she discovered a Geonosian sonic blaster that was capable of shifting its frequency with every blast, which would have made it unstoppable by the Jedi. Pandoor managed to steal the weapon and tried to use it against her, but the nexu returned and mauled him. Somtay managed to fight it off, and after recovering the sonic blaster, dragged Pandoor to a place where she could bind him and turn him over to the authorities. She reluctantly put in a good word for him, because he helped her reach the weapon.
