* 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]].

That's an abbreviated summary, of course. There are other plots in there, like a traitorous ambassador, Mon Mothma's illness (which is important in the long run since it leads to Leia becoming the New Republic's Chief of State), and Daala's various failures. All in all, while it has its defenders, the Jedi Academy trilogy is not exactly held up as the shining example of what the ExpandedUniverse should be.

** When the New Republic dismantles Maw Installation and and Kyp destroys the Death Star prototype (with most of the remaining Maw researches onboard) and dumps the Sun Crusher in a black hole, it seems that all information that could be used to recreate Imperial superweapons has been eliminated. [[Literature/TheCallistaTrilogy Except that another backup of the plans is stored deep in the archives of the Imperial Palace on Coruscant, and the original lead designer had been reassigned away from the Maw years earlier so he's still at large.]]
* OhCrap: Corran gloats to Kun's spirit that since he's already set explosives to destroy his temple, there's nothing Kun can do to stop him because as a ghost he can't affect anything physical (such as the bombs). Kun takes great pleasure in demonstrating that he ''can'' in fact influence the physical world (though with great difficulty), ''especially'' inside his temple which is what his spirit has been anchored to all along.

* OrphanedSetup: Wedge's joke, "So a Bothan walks into a bar with a gornt under his arm," [[JustifiedTrope because Luke's using the joke as a distraction to put Corran in a meditative trance for a mind probe]]. Lampshaded later by Iella, who's apparently heard several variations on that joke in New Republic Intelligence, but naturally doesn't tell us any of them.

to:

** In ''I, Jedi'', Corran tells Tycho that if the Jedi apprentices are defeated, to convince Ackbar to order orbital bombarment of Exar Kun's temple, as that would the only way to destroy it while staying far enough way to be safe from mental influence by Kun's spirit.

Lampshaded later by Iella, who's apparently heard several variations on that joke in New Republic Intelligence, Intelligence (given their [[PlanetOfHats penchant for espionage]], NRI has more than its share of Bothans), but naturally doesn't tell us any of them.

* NeverASelfMadeWoman: Often taken as the reason why Daala became Admiral.
** Kind of confirmed in ''Literature/DeathStar'', where she's Tarkin's lover and he privately believes that the boost he gave her career is just enough to get her past the difficulties female Imperials have in the military. She takes brain damage in that novel.

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: When Kyp destroyed the Carida star system by causing its sun to go nova, he killed 25 million people. Even if Carida was the only inhabited body in the entire system, that's still a very small number for a planetary population above a bronze-age level. For comparison, New York state '''''alone''''' has a population of around 20 million.

For comparison, New York state '''''alone''''' has a population of around 20 million. While Carida is described as being quite inhospitable (this being precisely why the Empire chose it for a Stormtrooper training facility), it ''also'' had a native non-human population who presumably would be well-adapted enough to their own planet's conditions to produce a larger population than that.
