And the reader is never allowed to forget just how serious the matter is, as there are a number of MauveShirt characters killed off, ADayInTheLimelight for minor characters, and an overview of the damage and destruction being wrought both within the Corellian system and in those being targeted for supernovas. (Example: after the attack on Corona House, during Leia's escape, it's made very clear just how many people died in the attack and are buried in the rubble, and she even finds the body of [[RedShirt an NRI agent]] who had told her of the interdiction field only a few days earlier.)\\

* RaceAgainstTheClock: One of the more nail-biting examples in the EU: the Starbuster [[spoiler:Centerpoint Station]] is set to shoot a list of stars and set off supernovas, regular as clockwork, in a pattern hard-wired in and unable to be shut down or reprogrammed without the assistance of the masterminds of the plot. This terrorist threat is hanging over the heroes all throughout the series, but by the last book it has become absolutely critical to stop since the next star on the list is one with the largest populated worlds yet, and they only get more populous after that. (The final star in the list is ''Corell itself''. Presumably the masterminds would shut the weapon down before it got to that point, since this would obliterate all the worlds they wanted to claim, and their own world too, but the threat is still there.) The final battle in the book is not only an attempt to take out the invading fleet and bring down the masterminds before they can regain control of the superweapon, but an attempt to bring online one of the planetary repulsors and fire it in an interference ray to detune the nova-inducing ray into a harmless burst of light. Finally, Anakin Solo is able to do so from Drall, [[JustInTime at the very last second]].

During his smuggling career,Lcareer, Lando made use of such communication systems to coordinate rendezvous with other smugglers and contraband buyers, because few Imperials would ever think to scan for such primitive transmissions. The fact that he gave Tendra one of radio transmitters proves to be vitally important, allowing her to pass on information about about the incoming Sacorrian fleet.

It's one of the few EU series to deal with these implications, and to make use of plausible and frankly terrifying superweapons since they are based solely on the LostTechnology of NeglectfulPrecursors twisted to nefarious ends, rather than yet another newly-designed or discovered Imperial project.

Also, the shot that targeted the uninhabited system still had the highest death toll simply because [[spoiler:the power storage battery had been converted into living space in ages past]].
