dubbed "the Flying Hatbox" by Mara Jade, the Etherway was an Action V transport that was part of the smuggler fleet owned by Talon Kaarde during the early years of the New Republic. During this time, it was used by Fynn Torve on his missions to deliver food to the rebels on Abregado-Rae. Like the Starry Ice, the Etherway was armed with three turbolasers. Capable of carrying up to six passengers and 75,000 metric tons of cargo, the ship was crewed by a pilot, a navigator, and three gunners. The ship was impounded on Abregado-Rae just before Han Solo and Lando Calrissian arrived there to try and locate Talon Kaarde, and Torve was forced to leave it there to fly with Han and Lando in the Millennium Falcon to meet with Karrde. Later, Wedge Antilles had it moved and pretended to be its owner to get in touch with Mara Jade. Torve had set up an elaborate identification scheme, which required Mara and Wedge to argue whether or not the ship was actually a Harkners-Balix 903. Karrde maintained the ship over the coming years, and the Etherway was one of the ships which Karrde brought to Yavin 4 to rescue the students at the Jedi praxeum from capture by the Yuuzhan Vong. It was damaged in the battle, but managed to survive.

this was a name used to describe a former Jedi Padawan who was stripped of his connection to the Force and set adrift in the galaxy, during the years following the defeat of Darth Malak and the destruction of the Star Forge. In the wake of the Jedi Civil War, The Exile was sent away because he had abandoned the Jedi Order and followed Revan to join the Mandalorian Wars. After the Jedi Civil War mearly wiped out the entire Jedi Order, The Exile discovered a renewed link to the Force when his ship, the Ebon Hawk, was discovered in deep space by a group of Sith devotees and Jedi Master Kreia. Although the Sith Lord, Darth Sion, was unaware of his true nature, Kreia believed him to be among the last of the Jedi. He reluctantly agreed to be trained by Kreia, after learning that they shared a bond through a Force Chain, a connection that should not have been possible given his exile. As he came to grips with his situation, The Exile remembered fighting in the Mandalorian Wars, where he served as a General under Revan, and was responsible for activating the Mass Shadow Generator that ended the fighting. Kreia's connection to the Force, and the knowledge obtained by T3-M4, allowed The Exile to learn more about his defection from the Jedi Order to join Revan. At the time he regained consciousness on Peragus II, the Exile believed that his connection to the Force was cut off when he abandoned the Jedi Code. After escaping Darth Sion at Peragus II and learning that five Jedi Masters had survived the Jedi Civil War, The Exile set out to locate them, in an effort to being rebuilding the Jedi Order. Along the way, he learned that one of the members of his party, Atton Rand, had been trained in a limited use of the Force. The Exile agreed to train Rand as a Jedi, to the best of his abilities. After finding all the surviving Jedi Masters and getting them to regroup on Dantooine, The Exile was dismayed to learn that Kreia was not the Jedi Master she claimed to be. Instead, she was actually Darth Traya, and part of the triumverate of Sith Lords who were plotting on Malachor V to take over the galaxy. He set out to hunt them down, defeating Darth Nihilus at Telos and Darth Sion on Malachor V before confronting his teacher. Although she was more powerful, The Exile managed to defeat her in combat. Before killing her, though, he demanded to know something of the future, hoping that any information would guide his path. Taking the dead woman's words at face value, The Exile returned to Dantooine to complete his training as a Jedi.

this was the term used by the former members of the Shamed Ones, in the wake of the defeat of the Yuuzhan Vong and the subsequent rebuilding of the galaxy. The new name stemmed from the fact that the Shamed Ones were able to rise up against their former oppressors in the other castes of Yuuzhan Vong society, and helped turn the tide of the war in the favor of the Galactic Alliance. These efforts ultimately saved the entire Yuuzhan Vong race from extinction, earning them their new name. Despite their history, the Extolled Ones were still looked upon as Shamed by the other castes, and had to struggle to earn their place as the highest members of the new Yuuzhan Vong society.
