Thank you, Timothy Zahn! My quest to read all of these books was in danger after struggling through Rogue Planet, but Outbound Flight was a great follow up to renew my motivation.
So I know that this book is super foreshadowing or whatever for the Thrawn Trilogy I’ll get to some day. Actually, I read it a long time ago, but I don’t really remember a ton of details. I think that actually helped because I wasn’t comparing any of the characters to the their future selves or whatever. It was just a good book full of interesting characters.
There were several characters I really liked – Car’das and Lorana Jinzler come to mind. I also found Thrawn’s story very interesting. C’baoth was definitely not my favorite and his storyline was annoying. But I think it was supposed to be. I didn’t mind Obi-Wan and Anakin showing up, but if they had not been in the book, I don’t think it would have hurt the book at all. They were just a little pointless.
This was a good read and a fun adventure. It makes me look even more forward to getting back to the Thrawn Trilogy and meeting up with Thrawn again.
