May the Fourth Be With You

One of our favorite non-standard holidays is Star Wars Day, May the Fourth (get it?). According to Wikipedia, the famous Star Wars phrase—”may the force be with you”—was first used to reference May 4 in 1979, and quickly grew in prominence as Star Wars fans the world over picked up on it. Now, celebrations are held everywhere from Disneyland to the International Space Station in celebration of this day.

Thrawn’s latest triumph still rests newly on his shoulders. Across the Ascendancy, seemingly inconsequential events could herald the doom of the Chiss. As Thrawn and the Expansionary Defense Fleet rally to uncover the plot, they discover a chilling truth: Rather than invade Chiss capitals or pillage resources, their enemy strikes at the very foundation of the Ascendancy, seeking to widen the rifts between the Nine Ruling Families and the Forty Great Houses below. As rivalry and suspicion sow discord among allies, each warrior must decide what matters most to them: the security of their family or the survival of the Ascendancy itself.

The Republic continues to grow, bringing more worlds together under a single unified banner. Under the leadership of Chancellor Lina Soh, the spirit of unity extends throughout the galaxy, with the Jedi and the newly established Starlight Beacon station at the vanguard. In celebration, the chancellor plans The Republic Fair, a showcase of the possibilities and the peace of the expanding Republic; a peace the Jedi hope to foster. But as the eyes of the galaxy turn toward the Fair, so too does the fury of the Nihil.
