A nine-book series set in the StarWarsExpandedUniverse, about eleven years after the ''NewJediOrder''. Written in trios by AaronAllston, Karen Traviss and Troy Denning. Opinions on this series are mixed, as you can see by the examples. To make a nine-book-long story short: once upon a time there was a Jedi named Jacen Solo, who starts having prophetic Force visions that, if he doesn't turn to TheDarkSide and become a [[BigBad Sith Lord]], the galaxy will be doomed. So he turns to the Dark Side and becomes a Sith lord, getting co-rulership of the galaxy in the process, and alienating a lot of people, such as his parents, Han Solo and Leia Organa; his uncle Luke Skywalker, aunt Mara Jade and cousin Ben Skywalker; and his twin sister, Jaina Solo. Jacen justifies his continuing FaceHeelTurn with a lot of IDidWhatIHadToDo; an attitude his Sith teacher, [[MarvelStarWars Lady Lumiya]], encourages. Driving Jacen furthermore is concern for his lover, Tenel Ka, whose relationship to him is secret because she's the queen of a very vindictive culture and their daughter, Allana, whose paternity is even more secret. [[RevengeOfTheSith Much like what his grandfather went through]].

Not to be confused with StarWarsLegacy, although both of them have a CrapsackWorld and ignoble Skywalkers.

** As if the comparisons to the events of RevengeofTheSith weren't enough, the planets wanting to leave the Republic in the Clone Wars were called the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Here the planets wanting to leave the Galactic Alliance are called the Confederation.

* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: This series has some of worst examples of any Star Wars work: ** Han and Leia have few qualms about supporting a fascistic Corellian government that breaks galactic law, represses its own people, and gets into stupid and wasteful shooting wars. More importantly, the fact that this government is led by ''war criminals'' gets barely a mention, even from Leia, who is lock-step behind her husband in supporting them. This changes when they plan to assassinate Tenel Ka, their friend. ** Wedge Antilles betrays the Alliance because they detained him as a Corellian national, and only betrays the Corellian government when Thrackan Sal-Solo threatens to do worse. The fact that he works for such a terrible government is a distant, secondary factor. ** Ben Skywalker is remarkably aloof about working for an SS-like organization, until, of course, his mother is killed and his father and Jacen are openly in conflict. ** Jacen believes everything he does is justified for the safety of his daughter. The fact that he is fighting a ruinous war of repression and conquest, likely killing or orphaning thousands of children, is completely lost on him.

** Ben gets a bit too. Luke and Mara were both trained as assassins, but when on a mission to assassinate Vader and Luke respectively, they gave up that path. Also, Ben seems to have inherited his father's [[ChickMagnet skill with the ladies]], (It happened to Luke in ''The Courtship of Princess Leia''.)

* NeverMyFault: The more Jacen descends into the Dark Side, the more he embodies this trope.
