Using the implanted slave seed beneath his flesh as a conduit, Jacen communicates with the living instruments of Yuuzhan Vong technology.

The malevolent entity remembers the bond that Jacen had forged earlier, and Jacen suggests to it to work against the Yuuzhan Vong.


Ganner dies that day, though Jacen escapes with Vergere. He returns to the dwindling New Republic territories a different man: haggard, thin and hardened.

Dark Nest Crisis (35 ABY – 36 ABY)

In Dark Nest, Jacen feels an urge through the Force and follows his sister to the Unknown Regions to help the insectoid Killik against an invading Chiss force. He returns to Republic space after his parents, resulting in his uncle and aunt to come for him, Jaina, and the other Jedi. He then travels to the Hapes Cluster to ask Tenel Ka to assist with the Chiss/Killik conflict, believing that the fleet could act as a buffer between the two armies.

Immediately afterward, he sees a vision of a neverending war that will destroy the galaxy, with the Killiks at the heart of it.

For other uses, see Coma (disambiguation). ...


Jacen's rationale for the preemptive strike is to keep the Chiss forces from starting a war on their own terms. His actions prevent a genocidal attempt by the Chiss to wipe out the Killiks with a biogenetic weapon. Despite his best efforts, however, the war eventually spreads to the Galactic Alliance when Killik forces try to dominate the Alliance's insectoid species. Under Jacen's advice, however, the Jedi prevent all of the strikes except one attack which targeted the Alliance's bacta supplies. For other uses, see Genocide (disambiguation). ...


In The Swarm War, Luke Skywalker comes to respect Jacen almost as much as a senior master, much to the dismay of Jacen's peers. He takes his nephew's advice so many times that he even listens when Jacen tells him that he is not ready to face Lomi Plo, the Dark Queen of the Gorog. Jacen, Mara and Luke know that doubt and fear would make Lomi Plo invisible to her enemy.

During the fight with Lomi Plo, Jacen's fear is realized when Luke falters for a moment when Mara is injured, and doubt enters his mind. Lomi Plo then holds him in place, unable to move. In that instant, Jacen is critically wounded by Lomi Plo while saving Mara Skywalker's life. A well-placed shot from Mara blasts Lomi Plo away, after which Mara tends to Jacen's wounds. While he and Mara recover in a medical bay, Jacen tries to corrupt Luke by telling him to embrace the dark emotions. Luke rejects Jacen's views and goes back to the true Jedi way, eliminating his doubts and defeats the Dark Queen and Raynar Thul without using the dark side, proving Jacen wrong. This, in conjunction with the capture of Raynar Thul, ends the Killik threat.


In the latter novel, Jacen joins his uncle in watching holovideos of his grandparents, Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala; in particular, he sees Anakin fall to the dark side and Padmé die in childbirth partly as a result of Anakin's treachery. (These scenes are first portrayed in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith). Jacen actually sympathizes with Anakin's desire to protect his wife (while disagreeing with the manner in which he did it) and reminds Luke that Anakin was a fallible human being.

After fighting Force projections with Ben, Nelani catches up with them.


Brisha is revealed to be Lumiya, the Dark Lady of the Sith. She reveals that Vergere is a Sith apprentice, and that Jacen has already received Sith training.
