Various crises arise in the New Republic (President Leia Organa (Skywalker) Solo; acting President Ponc Gavrisom). Its stability is threatened by infighting at a time that there are rumors that the tactical genius Grand Admiral Thrawn has returned from the dead.

Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, uncertain of the directions his life is taking, tries to reduce his use of the Force for unnecessary things. He runs into trouble, and is rescued by an old friend, Mara Jade. Mara and Talon Karrde then pick up strange signals from alien ships. Mara follows one, and becomes stranded on an unknown planet.

It is revealed that the Imperial remnant is attempting to revive sleeper cells of clone troopers. Leia and Han attempt to deal with this issue, while Chewbacca takes the children to Kashyyyk for safety.

Mara, out of contact with the Republic, is seen by Luke in a disturbing vision. Luke sets out, with R2-D2, to help.

Many of the main characters become wrapped up in the search for the Caamas document, which supposedly contains information as to who destroyed the Caamasi homeworld. Han and Lando go to the Imperial capitol, Bastion, to search. Talon Karrde and the Miystrl bodyguard Shadda Du'kal, along with C-3PO, also depart to search for it.

Luke meets a race of pterodactal-like creatures and finds Mara, and they embark on a journey to discover more about the fortress they are inside.

Vision of the Future by Jean Houston (851 words)
Vision incites the courage to be, to act, to succeed.
Vision is also the picture of the future, the promised land, whether it is Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt or Martin Luther King Jr.
Our future can be a unique civilization that honors diversity, moves from fixing to finding, from debate to conversation, from despair to discovery, nonviolence as a way of life and the maintenance of contracts between ever larger groups.
Vision of the Future (6087 words)
Vision of the Future actually refers to the part of Don's Vision that shows where all these trends will lead to.
Visions about a Post-Government Era have been suppressed for so long that once a discussion is started, it will strike with the impact of a novelty that becomes fashion.
As Don's Vision of the Future will seem to emerge from out of nowhere, yet appear everywhere, its impact will be a true revolution, it will sink in and shake the foundations of the Government and will hit with a force stronger than military might.
