* DividedWeFall: In the backstory, the Galactic Alliance was made of this trope - worlds were breaking away to be neutral during the war, because of disagreements over the failure of the Ossus Project, and sabotage from the Sith.

* DividedWeFall: In the backstory, the Galactic Alliance was made of this trope - worlds were breaking away to be neutral during the war, because of disagreements over the failure of the Ossus Project, and sabotage from the Sith. In a more personal example, the schism between the Galactic Empire and the Jedi Order is also indicative of a rift in the Skywalker family; Cade Skywalker and Emperor Roan Fel are actually distant cousins (Cade is a direct descendant of Luke, Roan is a direct descendent of Leia), but they end up on opposite sides of the new Galactic Civil War.


Added DiffLines:

* FeudingFamilies: Though it's only made clear in the [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary materials]], the Fel family and the Skywalker family are actually two different branches of the Skywalker-Solo clan that split off and took two vastly different paths. It's implied that Roan Fel's grandmother Jaina Solo turned her back on the Jedi Order when she married Jagged Fel and decided to help him establish a new Galactic Empire, while her cousin Ben Skywalker stayed loyal to the legacy of the Old Republic. By the time of this series, they're on opposite sides of a new Galactic Civil War, and they're only willing to cooperate when [[EnemyMine they have the Sith as a common enemy]].

* ShoutOut: Plenty, but a notable example is the rich and varied vocabulary of [[PardonMyKlingon alien profanity]] peppering the dialogue of Cade and his foul-mouthed associates, which draws from sources including ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'', ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', and ''ThePiratesOfDarkWater''.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Good Imperials, a jerkass Skywalker who refuses to be the hero or the villain, and The Jedi are arguably better off without him.
** Better yet, despite StarWars having always been about "Light side vs Dark side", Legacy has MANY shades of Grey.
** {{Reconstruction}}: By the end, ''Legacy'' pretty much reconstructs StarWars after ''decades'' of {{Deconstruction}}. [[spoiler:Cade Skywalker rejects the DarkSide and becomes a better man, Krayt is overthrown and meets an ignominious end, and the Alliance, made up of genuine believers in the restoration of democratic government, score a magnificent final victory.]]
** DeconReconSwitch: The series pivots from {{Deconstruction}} to {{Reconstruction}} around the end of the ''Vector'' series.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Good DeconReconSwitch: Initially a complete flip of the usual ''Franchise/StarWars'' structure, with good Imperials, a jerkass Skywalker who refuses to be the hero or the villain, and The Jedi are arguably better off without him.

him. And despite StarWars having always been about "Light side vs Dark side", Legacy has MANY shades of Grey.
** {{Reconstruction}}: By
Grey. The series pivots at the end, ''Vector'' sub-series, and by the end ''Legacy'' pretty much reconstructs StarWars ''Franchise/StarWars'' after ''decades'' of {{Deconstruction}}.

''Star Wars: Legacy'' begins 133 years after ''ANewHope'', then immediately does a TimeSkip to 137 years before transitioning to 138 before the ''War'' arc. The comics feature Cade Skywalker, a descendant of Luke Skywalker, who was trained as a Jedi but has abandoned the order. He apprenticed himself to the pirate Rav and lives among bounty hunters, smugglers and pirates. Cade has also dropped his last name. The series begins with an attack on the Jedi Temple and the overthrow of the Galactic Empire by a newly created Sith order.

Added DiffLines:

* GainaxEnding: Enforced twice. Firstly, Dark Horse insisted that this series end roughly concurrently with Knights of the Old Republic, with the ''War'' arc was a subversion, being a partially successful attempt at defying this. The second was caused by the Disney buyout, and unfortunately also served as one for the entire EU.
