Fiction. Science Fiction. Thriller. HTML:In this third and final volume of the Corellian  trilogy, Han and Luke lead the Alliance in a mad scramble against the Selonian rebels for control of the planetary technology.
When a loyalist ship approaching Selonia is blasted out of space, Han Solo quickly realizes that rebel forces are turning planetary repulsors into weapons of immense destruction. Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian manage to discover the terrifying secret of Centerpoint Station. It is the infamous Starbuster itself, and its next programmed nova, hard-wired in, is set to annihilate a chosen star, its inhabited worlds, and millions of innocent lives. There's only one way to stop it: blow up the station. But as a massive rebel fleet closes in on Centerpoint, Han, Luke, and their friends will discover time is running out.
Then the true leaders of the rebellion reveal their identities and issue their final ultimatum: The New Republic must withdraw all claim to power over the entire Corellian sector. With the future of Corellian freedom at stake, Han and those loyal to the Republic must somehow resist. But how can they possibly stop the deadliest weapon the galaxy has ever known?
Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!.

Definitely the best one of the series. Good plot developments and we'll written. I do think that the climax happened abruptly and was over too fast, though. It was still fun to go back and read the series these past couple weeks. ( )

Cuando una nave leal a la Nueva República que se aproximaba a Selonia es hecha pedazos en el espacio, Han Solo enseguida comprende que las fuerzas rebeldes han pasado a utilizar los repulsores planetarios como armas de inmensa capacidad destructiva. Mientras tanto, Luke Skywalker y Lando Calrissian consiguen descubrir el aterrador secreto de la Estación Centralia. La estación es el diabólico artefacto que hace estallar las estrellas. Solo hay una forma de impedirlo: destruir la estación.
Pero cuando una enorme flota rebelde surja de la nada y se aproxime a Centralia, Han, Luke y sus amigos descubrirán que el tiempo se esta acabando. Entonces los verdaderos líderes de la rebelión revelan sus identidades y lanzan su ultimátum final: la Nueva República debe renunciar a cualquier clase de poder sobre el Sector Corelliano. Con el futuro de la libertad corelliana en juego, Han y quienes son leales a la República deben resistir de alguna manera. Pero ¿cómo pueden detener el ataque del arma más mortífera que la galaxia haya conocido jamás?

Ultimately a pretty disappointing series overall. I remember hearing good things about these, but they didn't really come through for me. There were some interesting hooks in here, both in terms of people and things, and they could have provided opportunities for really interesting and original developments in the SW universe. But I suppose that's not what the owners of this particular intellectual property are looking for. Instead, you get the same people, acting for the most part the same way you're used to seeing them act, and encountering phenomena which - no matter how intriguing they seem at first - turn out to be either ultimately trivial or unimportant, or remain unexplained.

Another problem with this series for me is that there's just no tension in any of the dangerous situations characters get into. You can safely apply a Star Trek analysis to the characters, and classify them into two categories: bridge crew and red shirts. It seems impossible for bridge crew to die, or even get seriously hurt, while red shirts are essentially disposable, nothing more than talking scenery. But this isn't a fault of the story, at least not entirely - I've read books that I knew had sequels featuring the same character, or read books more than once so I knew how they turned out, and when they're written by a good, solid author, the moments of tension and danger are so compelling that I forget all about how I _know_ things must turn out.

I could go on and point out additional things that are weak about these books, but why bother, really? I rate this series "for completeists only". ( )

Some of the first books I'd read as a kid. I wonder if they would be so great if I read them now??? ( )

This is a nice, satisfying end to the trilogy and I especially enjoyed the scenes with Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin. The ideal of a machine that can move planets is pretty amazing and makes for some interesting sci-fi speculation. ( )
