Plot summary

Luke Skywalker is worried. A handful of Jedi Knights, including his nephew and niece, Jaina and Jacen Solo, have disappeared into the Unknown Regions in response to a strange cry for help that only they could hear. Now the alien Chiss have angily lodged a formal complaint, accusing the missing Jedi of meddling in a border dispute between the Chiss and an unidentified aggressor.


Luke has no choice but to head to the Unknown Regions for serious damage control. Han and Leia follow, intent on protecting their children from what could be grave danger. But none of them are prepared for what they find when they reach their destination.


A colony of mysterious aliens is expanding toward the edge of Chiss space. The leader of the alien nest is resolute. Adept in the Force, he is drawing old friends to his side, compelling them to join the colony and meld their Force-abilities with his, even if it leads to all-out war....

Arrayed around them are the tools of their respective trades: for the turner, long gouges, chisels and compass; for the joiner, planes, chisels, hammer, bench hook and holdfast.
The last part of Peter’s job description (“joiner’s work, using riven green oak, planed at the bench”) is shorthand for how he makes rough riven stock into useable boards.
Presumably, the period joiners planed all their stock first, did their carving, then cut the joinery, and test-fitted.
