Everything You Need to Know About the Star Wars Expanded Universe


There's a Foe Scarier Than Darth Vader

Darth Vader may have been one of the coolest villains ever, and a huge part of making Star Wars the cultural touchstone that it is, but there are foes even scarier and more imposing in the Expanded Universe. Meet the Yuuzhan Vong, a sadistic race of aliens from another galaxy that take absolute glee in destroying entire worlds and remaking them into something that suits them better. If you thought the Empire was bad, you gotta see the evil these guys get up to during the long New Jedi Order series. There are more than a few casualties in that war.
