My friend gave me a general description of a star wars book she was read when she was young, but I don't have it in my entire couple hundred novel collection. Could anyone let me know if this rings a bell?

She said that it was a group of protagonists on either a snow or desert planet. At one point they find a baby in some kind of machine, and take it with them on their journey. Later on the baby bangs its head and starts turning into some kind of monster. This sound like a star wars book anyone knows? Thanks either way.

I...hm.

Sounds similar to Red Harvest but at the same time it doesn't.

Galaxy of Fear series.

The baby they're referring to is a bio-weapons project by Vader. It keeps saying "epon" which they take to be its name, but actually is its way of saying "weapon" which is what it is.

Its Number 6 army of terror. My second favorite of the series.

Kudos DH! I thought Galaxy of fear too, but no way could I have pinned down the book like you did.

Thanks!


I have a sadly encyclopedic knowledge of the EU. One of these days I'll post an album of my collection. I'm missing 7 adventure journals, 12 WEG scenario books, the two "Chronicles" books from the early 200s and a handful of british comics to have everything.

I'm still working on collecting all the Galaxy of Fear novels. I've got a couple. Waiting until I have them all before I read them.

Those are even harder to find than Jedi Prince now.

The only series that is more difficult to track down is the Star Wars Mission books from Scholastic. (Which is of course what I'm hunting)

I have the luverly hardcover of the first 3 books in the Jedi Prince series and I wish I'd had the sense to shell out the $5 for the second one when it was on the bargain shelf at B&N when I was a kid.

I managed to snag both of those in hardcover. I still need a couple of the harder to find Young Jedi Knights books.

I never even knew there were hardcover collections of those. Interesting.


Which ones are you looking for Skuldren? There's a fair number at the used bookstores around here.
