Forty-seven years later comes ''[[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Survivor%27s_Quest Survivor's Quest]]'', set between the HandOfThrawn duology and the Literature/NewJediOrder. Newlyweds Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade are contacted by the [[HandOfThrawn Empire of the Hand]] with a message from the Chiss, who invite them as New Republic representatives to come visit the wreckage of Outbound Flight, and reclaim the remains. They feel responsible for that rogue Commander's actions. Things are complicated when they are accompanied by a faux New Republic ambassador with his own agenda, and when the pair find that representatives from the Empire of the Hand, Commander Chak Fel and four stormtroopers of the Five-Oh-First, were sent along as their escort. Things are complicated more when some aliens show up claiming that the Jedi of Outbound Flight saved them from the Vagaari, and they want to pay their respects.

** Then gets played with at the end of the novel as Mara believes that [[spoiler: Formbi couldn't have come up with the plan to instigate a Chiss-Vagaari war on his own. The scheme's complicated and convoluted nature goes against the Chiss' cultural and personal beliefs. It's more along the lines of something Thrawn would have cooked up. And while they [[HandOfThrawn destroyed]] the clone on Nirauan, it's possible the Grand Admiral had another clone hidden in the Unknown Regions. The drastic changes in Formbi's personality in the decades since ''Outbound Flight'' lends credence to Mara's theory]].

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorCameo: The Japanese cover for Outbound Flight makes Jorj Car'das look very similar to a young Creator/GeorgeLucas.

Somewhere between ''ThePhantomMenace'' and ''AttackOfTheClones'', a ship carrying three Corellian traders has a hyperdrive malfunction and ends up far outside of Republic space. They are taken into the custody of Commander [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Mitth%27raw%27nuruodo Mitth'raw'nuruodo]] of the Chiss Expansionary Defense Fleet, and from them he learns how to speak Basic and about the Republic, potentially a threat to his people. Thrawn is currently testing/fighting an entirely different set of aliens, the Vagaari.

* DontShootTheMessage: In-universe example: C'baoth leaves Thrawn with a very bad impression of the Jedi, which combined with them being [[OutsideContextVillain wholly alien to the Chiss]], seems to lead in future to consistently underestimating Jedi in general and C'Baoth in particular.

** This whole story was originally one of these. In ''TheThrawnTrilogy'', Thrawn tells us that he destroyed the Outbound Flight Project and killed the original C'baoth (and his vehemence then is now explained) and in ''HandOfThrawn'' Soontir Fel and Voss Parck give more details about the way Thrawn was outnumbered.

* HyperAwareness: Luke and Mara can rewind their memories to take another look at what they saw. One might wonder if Zahn would like this trick for himself, as it's [[TheThrawnTrilogy the second time he's featured it in his Star Wars works]].
* InTheBlood: Admittedly, [[TheThrawnTrilogy Joruus C'baoth]] was already crazy from being a [[CloningBlues flawed clone]], but it's pretty easy to see where he got his, well, ''everything'' from.

* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Jorus C'baoth isn't as bad as [[TheThrawnTrilogy his clone]], but he's still not the stablest of beings. You can see why he and [[EvilChancellor Palpatine]] get along.

* CloningGambit: Sort of. Jorus C'baoth dies, but from TheThrawnTrilogy we know that Palpatine decides he can still make good use of those genes. [[CallForward And, in Outbound Flight, it's mentioned that before they leave every member of the crew is given a thorough medical exam...]]
