* EarthShatteringKaboom: The Empire's training academy world, Carida, gets blasted into its component atoms courtesy of a supernova induced by the Sun Crusher. The Death Star Prototype later tries to do this to Kessel, but its targeting system is so badly screwed up that it actually ends up destroying the planet's moon. Which doesn't explain why the subsequent gravity warping from the loss of its moon didn't destroy Kessel anyway.
** The moon didn't vanish, it just was blown up into much smaller pieces. The mass is still there orbiting Kessel.

* GeneralFailure: Admiral Daala, whose sole achievements are killing a few dozen refugees on Dantooine, and destroying a floating city on the Mon Calamari homeworld. Not only does this massively pale compared to what [[TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]] managed to achieve with only slightly more resources, even other characters with no military training whatsoever (such as Kyp Durron and Tol Sivron) manage to cause more mass-destruction in this very storyline.

** Between the brain damage and the fact that Daala's background indicates that in the academy she was a brilliant ''ground combat'' tactician, perhaps her incompetence in space combat is justified. Had Tarkin made her a general and put her in charge of a Stormtrooper legion, she probably would've done a good job. But Tarkin needed her in a position where she could be hidden from his wife, so he had to make her an admiral and station her at a secret facility. Also, in the more recently written novel ''Literature/DeathStar'' she suffered a head injury during a Rebel attack on the construction site, and medics weren't able to get to her quickly enough to allow for a full recovery. In fact, part of the brain damage was [[LaserGuidedAmnesia amnesia about the Rebel attack in which she was injured]], so ''she doesn't even know she has brain damage''.

All of which are ex post facto attempts by other authors to justify her GeneralFailure tendencies in her original appearance as even other Star Wars writers couldn't take her being presented as a tactical genius in her original appearance at face value.

* MindRape: Kyp does this to Qwi. She actually ends up seeing it as a good thing, because it erases her knowledge of superweapons like the Death Star, ensuring that she can never be forced to design another one.

* TheAtoner: Kyp, after Exar Kun's control over him is broken.
-->'''Luke''': In dedicating his life to being a Jedi, you know Kyp is really under something of a life sentence.\\
'''Corran''': I know, and it'll be hard labor, too. Killing him wouldn't make the galaxy any better, so this is likely the best solution. Doesn't mean I like it and doesn't mean my inability to come up with a better solution isn't frustrating.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Although Episode II was famous for including the first purple lightsaber as a result of Samuel L. Jackson's insistence, Gantoris already uses a violet blade in Dark Apprentice.

The [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Jedi_Academy_Trilogy Jedi Academy Trilogy]] is a set of books in the Franchise/StarWarsLegends. The three books, ''Jedi Search'', ''Dark Apprentice'' and ''Champions of the Force'', were written by Creator/KevinJAnderson starting in 1994; in 1998, MichaelStackpole of XWingSeries fame wrote ''I, Jedi'', but we'll get to that in a bit. It should also be noted that in 1995 Anderson wrote ''Darksaber'', a semi-sequel to the Jedi Academy Trilogy, which we talk about [[Literature/TheCallistaTrilogy over here]].
