The New Jedi Order: Vector Prime
Andy posted an entry in BooksThe New Jedi Order: Vector Prime is an expanded universe novel by R A Salvatore, published in 1999. It was the first entry of the New Jedi Order era of the Star Wars timeline, and introduced the mysterious Yuuzhan Vong as they invaded the galaxy at the start of a devastating new conflict.
