On This Day: July 19, 2011


By Ciaran Duggan,

Timothy Zahn's novel Star Wars: Choices of One was first published on this day back on July 19, 2011. 

The book is set before the events in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back and follows the journey of Luke Skywalker following the end of A New Hope.

The iconic Legends character Mara Jade - the Emperor's Hand - makes an appearance in the novel, along with a young Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa.

The publisher summarised the novel:

"Mara Jade, the Emperor's Hand, is also heading for Candoras, along with the five renegade stormtroopers known as the Hand of Judgement. Their mission: to punish Ferrouz's treason and smash the Rebels for good."
