Encyclopedia > Balance Point

Balance Point is the sixth installment of the New Jedi Order series set in the Star Wars universe. It is a science fiction novel written by Kathy Tyers and published in 2000.

The Yuuzhan Vong are marching through the galaxy and the planet Duro becomes a flashpoint of conflict. Leia is ordered to lead a diplomatic envoy from the New Republic to Duro to seek terms. From prior experience, she knows the Vong will only accept their annihilation due to their machine-influenced culture, which the Vong consider an abomination to their gods. She clandestinely leads a military force to Duro which stops the Vong from advancing further into the galaxy, but fails to retake Duro.

Then representatives of the Yuuzhan Vong tap into the galaxywide HoloNet and propose peace terms themselves. They will advance no farther, and instead they will demonstrate on Duro the success of their terraforming, if all the Jedi are surrendered to them.

Does a Beardie have balance (816 words)
Balance is based on the movement of the sheep and the dog’s reaction to the movement, so that the dog is placing himself properly in relation to the sheep and handler.
Balance is being in contact with the sheep, the handler gives direction to the dog, but the dog is the one balancing the sheep.
For a gathering dog (most beardies are gathering dogs), balance is reached when the dog is in a position to cause the sheep to be held or to move in a line to the handler, even if the handler is over 100 yards away.
