* After Mara was wounded in the battle for the ''Katana'' fleet, she wakes up months later in a Coruscant medcenter. Ghent, a slicer Karrde had loaned the New Republic, has been watching over her, though he's such an oblivious computer nerd Mara hardly feels reassured. When Mara asks him how the war is going, he distractedly replies that "the Empire's been making the usual trouble." Later, Mara learns what's actually been going on: Thrawn's using quick-grown clones to bolster his forces and start up a new major offensive against the New Republic. Wryly, Mara notes that she should have realized ''anything'' that got through Ghent's bubble of obliviousness must be really important, even if the slicer himself doesn't recognize it as such.

* A small moment in ''Heir to the Empire'', but when Luke and Mara are stranded in the jungle of Myrkr, Luke reveals he hid his lightsaber inside Artoo ([[ContinuityNod the same as he did to smuggle it onto Jabba's sail barge]] in ''Return of the Jedi''). After Mara comments on always wondering how he did that, she gets an idea and says they "need to do something about his face". Luke then wryly observes that he doesn't think Artoo has a place to hide that. Her actual idea (after having Artoo record a message from Luke to send to Han, Lando, and Karrde) is also funny in a BlackComedy fashion--using a poisonous shrub to make Luke's face break out in a horrible rash, thus hiding his identity from Thrawn's Imperials. To top it off, the comic book adaptation of this moment gives Mara a deliciously evil grin when Luke has an off-panel scream reaction to the shrub.

** Karrde proves that, whether he wants to admit it or not, he fits in perfectly with our heroes and their CrazyEnoughToWork attitude. He tells Luke to take the top turret in the ''Falcon'', as he's "reasonably sure" he get the pursuing TIE Fighters to concentrate their attack there. Luke has no idea how Karrde plans to do that, until he gets strapped in and fires up the turret. . . and sees that Karrde is flying the ''Falcon'' over the ''Chimera's'' thruster nozzles, meaning any TIEs trying to attack from below will be subject to WeaponizedExhaust.

* In ''Heir to the Empire'', Leia goes to Kashyyyk and is greeted by a Wookiee who she can comprehend perfectly, after years of not being able to completely understand Chewbacca. This leads her to assume that Chewie had a speech impediment that he'd never told her about, which Chewie finds absolutely hilarious. It's up their new guide to explain that Chewie speaks perfectly; it's the guide who has a speech impediment, of a type that humans actually find easier to understand.

* Luke and Mara end up escaping a Star Destroyer ("[[CallBack Let's not try going through the garbage compactors.]]"), which coincidentally has also captured the ''Falcon''. After they make their escape, Mara notices a red light on one of the panels, and gets up to fix it. Luke's response? "Don't bother. Han's got this whole ship so crosswired it'll fly with half the systems out."

* Niles Ferrier, banking on some previous shared history, manages to trick Han and Lando into a meeting with him by faking it as a request from Luke. Later they discuss the possibility that Ferrier had planted a tracking device on their ship, and how best to get rid of it.
-->'''Lando:''' "Well unless you want to throw it onto another ship on our way out, we'll just have to take a detour to drop it."
