View Full Version : Book Chronology (Starfighters of Adumar)

20 August 2003, 02:00 PM
Hey everyone. I'm still waist-deep in Star Wars books, but I'm ploughing through them at a respectable pace. Anyway, as I am a chronology freak, I heard some conflicting bits of information about when Starfighters of Adumar takes place in relation to the other books. Does Starfighters of Adumar take place directly after I, Jedi or does it take place after Planet of Twilight? Your answer could affect the order in which I read the books, so I appreciate in advance your prompt and historically accurate responses. Thanks.

Thanks for the chronology list. Someone should probably tell theforce.net that their novels chronology is out of order... although their timeline is fine.

Hmm, I thought SoA took place after I, Jedi.

<b>Paul</b>, then you may have read the TFN novel listing, because there they list it after I, Jedi. But this seems not to be correct. :)

Yeah, I think that's where I might have gotten it from.

Thanks for the update in any case!

What is Starfighters of Adumar, I seem to have missed it?

The very last of the X-wing novels. Only Wedge, Hobbie, Wes, and Tycho are in it.

I think you mean Tycho, as in Tycho Celchu, Alderaanian (sp? Is that even the correct term for someone from Alderaan?) and survivor of the Battle of Endor.

Hard to say. I've always preferred the term "Alderaani". Much more elegant than "Alderaanian", which is more in line with their society in general...

The Rogues involved in the Adumar Mission are Wedge Antilles (Corellia), Tycho Celcho (Alderaan, the CCG originally mis-identified him as Typho), Wes Janson (Tanaab), and Derek "Hobbie" Kilvian (Commonly mispelled, and referenced as such in the story, as Klivan. I forget his homeworld).

Starfighters of Adumar was also a real good novel

28 August 2003, 06:57 AM
I read it...was Iella Wessiri in any other books besides SoA? Because I'm only on the third chapter of the first X-Wing novel. (I read the NJO books all first, then picked up SoA and couldn't put it down and found out that there were X-Wing novels before it)

Iella Wessiri was in a fair amount of books, mostly in the X-Wing series. I believe she was in:
The Krytos Trap
The Bacta War
Isard's Revenge
I, Jedi
In addition to Starfighters of Adumar. Did I miss any?

Rogue Janson

She's also in both the Rebel Lines NJO books, though not with a major part.

29 August 2003, 06:59 AM
Yeah I thought she was in with Wedge at the battle of Borleias.

You're thinking of Mirax Terrik.

Iella Wessiri doesn't meet Rogue Squadron until just prior to the Battle of Coruscant, where she's the Intel contact for Wedge Antilles & Pash Cracken during their covert insertion into Imperial Center.

BTW re-reading SoA again, Hobbie's homeworld is Ralltiir.

Iella is only a minor character throughout most of the EU. But she's a very integral part of Rogue Squadron's history. She was Corran's partner at CorSec, she assisted the Rogues on dozens of missions, she's responsible, in part, for the acquittal of Tycho Celchu. And she married Wedge. Pretty big contributions for such a minor character.

I consider her more of supporting cast than a minor character, personally.
