Everything You Need to Know About the Star Wars Expanded Universe


Palpatine Isn't the Last of the Empire

It may have seemed like the Empire was a spent entity at the end of Return of the Jedi, but it turned out that there was one last foe for Luke and friends to face: Grand Admiral Thrawn. The last of the great admirals of the Empire, and the only one not to be human, Thrawn was the primary villain of Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn trilogy, still regarded as one of the best things the Expanded Universe ever produced. Frankly, if you’re thinking you want to check out some Star Wars books, there’s nowhere else to start.
