Great continuation of the story, as the viewpoint shifts to other players in the saga. Art wasn't quite as good, but still more than sufficient to tell the story. Still a great EU story.

The Galactic Alliance stands against the Empire, but the need ships to do so. Their leader Admiral Gar Stazi has plans to steal some.
description

I know this stuff is important, but space battles and intergalactic politics never draw me into Star Wars. I really only care about the Jedi vs Sith aspects of Star Wars although there are always a few other characters who catch my attention. I did like Grand Admiral Stazi, that alien has some ferocity to him that was much appreciated.

I highly approve of epic space battles and mind palace Sith duels.

The focus of this graphic novel series shifts to the Galactic Alliance with this volume. The third power in this civil war story has remind on the outskirts of the storyline up until this period. Readers are brought to Mon Calamari, where the Sith Empire is using a giant docking ring around the planet to build its newest Star Destroyer, the Imperious.

The Galactic Alliance is not ready to let a newer, more powerful weapon fall into the hands of the enemy so Admiral Gar Stazi, one of the Alliance'

This volume takes a break from the development of Cade Skywalker and instead focuses on fleshing out the existing state of affairs between the three factions vying for control of the galaxy: the Sith Empire, Fel's Empire, and the GA Remnant. Ostrander has a thorough knowledge of the EU and does a wonderful job integrating his story within the existing culture and history developed by his predecessors. He's also done a great job at not only introducing new characters, but making them likable and ...more

It's shorter than most volumes of the series, but the three stories were overall pretty good in each of their respective themes. I love the theme of how the Sith of the old do not agree with the new Sith, but how Darth Wyyrlick resolves it, is by stating that cultures change over the years and for the Sith, it's uniting theme is bending the will of the force for your own ends. It was cool to see a Sith battle that didn't necessarily involved lightsabers. The Imperial-Alliance-Sith war is going p ...more

Book 4 leaves our erstwhile heroes for a while and concentrates on the military struggle between the Galactic Alliance and the Sith Empire. The change of perspective is interesting, and necessary for plot development, but there's nothing spectacular here. The book then closes with an issue devoted to Darth Wyyrlok, as he travels deep into the Core in search of ancient Sith lore. The piece is a very well-done look at the mentality of the Sith. Yes, power is the primary motivator, but some, exempl ...more

If I could give this volume 4.5 stars I would. There are many things about Alliance that I loved in volume 2. It is always a good sign when new characters and factions are introduced in the fourth trade paperback of a series. While it isn't totally original, I enjoyed seeing the Rebel Alliance fighting against not one but two enemies essentially. It is also interesting how alien heavy the rebels are now. The Sith response in the next story was suitably and surprisingly brutal for Star Wars. The ...more

Le peu qui reste de l'Alliance Galactique décide de tenter un grand coup. Ils veulent voler un Star Destroyer aux mains des Sith et de leurs alliés. Réussissant leur coup, ils ne se doutent pas que leur geste d'éclat aura pour effet de fâcher Darth Krayt au point qu'il décide d'éliminer tous les Calamaris de la Galaxie.

La première partie qui est plus politique était la moins intéressante. C'était long à lire et les personnages importants étaient moins intéressants. La seconde et la troisième par

With all the excitement building with Cade's story... this story just kind of drops it. Personally, I really like Cade and his friends, so when the story broke away to show Stazi and the Mon Calamari plot, I didn't care about it. But, I will admit, I got invested a little and I like how everything turned out. I thought the story about Wyyrlok would be better, but it really wasn't. It feels very rushed, his story about trying to find Krayt's cure. And there isn't much challenge to his character. ...more

So apparently the odd volumes are off stories. Rather than following Cade, this explores Alliance Admiral Gar Stazi and an attack on Mon Calamari to claim an imperial star destroyer. The story is impressive; one of the better single volumes. The action and intrigue and politicking all work together wonderfully, and the aftermath is way more than expected. There's also a one-off issue about one of Krayt's seconds, which is interesting but not quite as good as the main plot. Still, this book reall ...more

3 stories: 1. Indomitable - a cool battle in space led by a Neimoidian Admiral called Stazi. 2. The Wrath Of The Dragon - Darth Krayt is not pleased about the stunt Stazi pulled and the entire Mon Calamari race are to pay the ultimate price for their role in it. 3. Into The Core - An excellent story where the past and present of the Sith meet and the differences between old and new become quite clear.
All in all a very good volume. Only new/lesser known characters in the stories, but very well w

I've been enjoying the Legacy story-arc so far, but this volume definitely increased my interest in the narrative, as it introduced a political layer to what's been going on with the main characters. The consequences of the story now seem bigger, and I'm actually more interested in the fates of the characters that were just introduced in "Alliance". A fun read.

Another 'filler' volume...and this time no Cade at all! However, it was still a good read. Stazi acquiring the Imperious (aka the Alliance), the start of an alliance between Fel and Stazi, and Wyyrlok's journey into the deep core were all interesting. It will still be good to get back to the main storylines though.

I didn't think that I was going to like a book without a Skywalker, but this volume turned out to be tons of fun. Admiral Stazi is quite the asskicker. Ostrander sure knows how to write a great space battle. Turns out it was nice to take a break from Cade and Fel. And I hope this isn't the last we see of Anj and Monia. Overall, a very good volume.

I really enjoyed this one. It was a little disappointing that we didn't get any stuff with Cade and his friends, but the stuff we did get was good enough that I ended up not minding in the end. I really enjoyed the focus on The Galactic Alliance characters, and the Wyrrlok story at the end of the issue was pretty cool.

Really liked this one. And back to sensibly clad females, mostly because they were military members and did not lose their practicality and efficiency for style. Glad someone in the galaxy has some sense. Or maybe it was just because they were mostly Mon Cals and no one wants to see them half naked?

Baisse de régime pour ce quatrième tome, peut etre parce qu'on y voit pas Cade Skywalker. Du coup on a le droit à une bataille confuse de vaisseau spatiaux, a un passage sur darth Wyyrlock et du bon gros remplissage des familles sur l'univers Legacy. Et en plus, c'est graphiquement moins joli.

well not bad but so far this series just isn't doing much for me it seems like one volume will be really good then the next one will be filler and give you a le new plot with out continuing nothing of the preveuse volumes plot.

The Sith are getting closer to catching the rebels, and show how evil they are. This is a short book that looks at the wider universe within Legacy and introduces a lot of new characters. The sith are always interesting though. A good read.

A very intriguing look at the other players in the story. This series is seriously fantastic so far. You can feel the build to something big coming, but I like how morally gray most of the characters are, it's really making it hard to decided who is in the right.

Feels short and inconsequential after Volume 3, but that's okay. An important introduction to one of the key political/military leaders in stories to come.

Though these digressive stories aren't as strong as the ones from volume 2, they delightfully make the universe of Legacy larger.

The first Mon Cal arc wasn't my favorite. The art wasn't to the level of what has come before and the story seemed to drag on. The Darth Wyyrlok arc was better, but he seems too overpowered.

A disappointingly thin transition novel. Definitely a slump in the story line. But alas, these things are necessary, sometimes.
