* 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...]]

* FandomNod: Ari Roselani, cosplaying as Grand Admiral Thrawn, [[http://public.fotki.com/Kait/star_wars/tim_zahn_booksigning/thrawntim.html met]] Timothy Zahn in 2002, and apparently they became friends. ''Outbound Flight'' has a female Chiss admiral dressed all in white and aiding in Thrawn's plans named [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ar%27alani Ar'alani]].

** The last seen with Luke and Mara can also be seen as such. It's cute how Mara is lovingly telling Luke that she'll always be with him, til the end of time. And sad when you consider her death in "Sacrifice". She *was* there for Luke and Ben as a force ghost when they needed guidance a couple times, but couldn't be there with Luke physically.
