Champions of the ForceBook - 1994
Suspended helplessly between life and death, Luke Skywalker lies in state at the Jedi academy. But on the spirit plane, Luke fights desperately for survival, reaching out physically to the Jedi twins. At the same time, Leia is on a life-and-death mission of her own, a race against Imperial agents hoping to destroy a third Jedi child -- Leia and Han's baby Anakin -- hidden on the planet Anoth. Meanwhile, Luke's former protÚgÚ Kyp Durron has pirated the deadly Sun Crusher on an apocalyptic mission of mass destruction, convinced he is fighting for a just cause. Hunting down the rogue warrior, Han must persuade Kyp to renounce his dark crusade and regain his lost honor. To do it, Kyp must take the Sun Crusher on a suicide mission against the awesome Death Star prototype -- a battle Han knows they may be unable to win... even with Luke Skywalker at their side!

"You have to be champions of the Force, with or without your Jedi Master. Learn as Luke learned: step by step. You must work together, discover the things you don't know, fight what has to be fought. But the one thing you can't do is give up!"-Leia
"Do you enjoy having your spirit trapped away from your body, Skywalker? I have had four thousand years to get accustomed to it. The first century or two are the worst." -Exar Kun
"I've already been tempered by the dark side. I came out stronger. You are weak because you know only the evil teachings. Your understanding is no greater than that of my apprentices." -Luke Skywalker

SummaryAdd a Summary
Kyp Durron continues his rampage to destroy the Galactic Empire with the Sun Crusher to avenge his brother (whom he inadvertently kills when he destroys Carida). Luke, who was left in stasis after the fight between himself and Exar Kun, makes every attempt he can to save his body from Exar and his monsters. After reaching out to the Jedi twins, he warns them about the danger his body is in and that they need to protect it at all costs. In the end, all the apprentices unite and Exar Kun is destroyed. After the death of Exar Kun, Kyp comes to the light side again after talking to Han Solo. Luke forgives Kyp, and Kyp takes the Sun Crusher into the Maw to destroy it. Wedge Antilles and his group of fighters reach the Maw Installation, to free the wookie prisoners and get information. The last of Admiral Daala's ships, the Gorgon, limps back to Imperial installation in the Maw near Kessel after supposedly dying. During the fight, Admiral Daala successfully fakes her death and escapes. Meanwhile, Tol Sivron and his group of scientists escape on the prototype Death Star. Before they could go far, Kyp crashes his ship, the Sun Crusher into the prototype and hauls both ships into a black hole. Kyp escapes by getting into a pod. Terpfen had revealed to Ackbar that the dying Mon Mothma had been poisoned by Furgan with microscopic nano-destroyers. He asked Cilghal to come to the Imperial Palace and heal Mon Mothma, which she does. Leia becomes the new Chief Of State. Leia, Han, Ackbar, Wedge, Chewbacca and Mon Mothma then attended the reopening of the Cathedral of Winds on Vortex, while Lando and Mara returned to Kessel and Kyp went back to Yavin 4 with Luke, to continue his Jedi training.
