Outbound Flight - Star Wars (486 words)
Outbound Flight was an expeditionary project that sent a mission of six Jedi Masters, twelve Jedi Knights and 50,000 men, women and children beyond the borders of the Galactic Republic into the Unknown Regions where they hoped to pierce the edge of the galaxy and seek out extragalactic life.
As Outbound Flight departed, Palpatine detached a task force of fifteen of his most modern warships from his personal fleet to destroy the mission.
If the Outbound Flight Project had been successful, the inhabitants of the Galaxy could have had an early warning of a number of hostile species including the Yuuzhan Vong, the Ssi-Ruuk, the Tofs, the Nagai and the Killiks.
