* MamaBear: Leia. As noted in [[http://blogs.starwars.com/abelgpena/92 Abel G. Pena's blog]], [=McIntyre=]'s characterisation of Leia as a mother is one of the better examples in the EU.

* PutOnABus: The ships containing what's left of the Firrerreos jump to hyperspace and are basically ignored by the rest of the book. ''The Essential Guide to Alien Species'' eventually established that they found asylum on the planet Belderone. A happy ending? [[HappyEndingOverride Not so much]]: ''[[Literature/NewJediOrder Force Heretic I: Remnant]]'' gave a throwaway mention that the planet was captured by the Yuuzhan Vong, who enslaved the Belderonians and rendered the Firrerreos [[BusCrash functionally extinct]].


Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Almost nothing about this book is ever even referred to again by later material.

* SeriesContinuityError: Luke's lightsaber is blue in this book. He lost said blue lightsaber in TheEmpireStrikesBack and built a green one in ReturnOfTheJedi; although he got the blue one back in TheThrawnTrilogy, he gave it to Mara Jade.
** Also, because this book was written before the chronologically-earlier [[TheCallistaTrilogy Callista Trilogy]]--which ended only a year before ''Crystal Star''--the early chapters in which Han ribs Luke about finding a woman and having Jedi children (even making jokes about what Obi-Wan was like in his youth) come across as rather mean-spirited even for the smuggler. (I.e., Luke is just coming off of losing Callista, [[RomanticFalseLead the woman he thought was]] the love of his life.)

''[[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/The_Crystal_Star The Crystal Star]]'' is an oddity in the StarWarsExpandedUniverse. Released in TheNineties during the indecisive seeming period before the release of ''ThePhantomMenace'', this book was the work of science-fiction author Vonda [=McIntyre=]. She had previously written a number of books set in the StarTrekExpandedUniverse, and the influence certainly shows.

In a Star Wars galaxy now populated by centaurs, "[[PhantasySpelling wyrwulfs]]" and strange creatures from other universes, ''The Crystal Star'' involves Luke and Han investigating a bizarre cult while Leia searches for her and Han's kidnapped children. There's also something about anti-Force, Han's ex-girlfriend and Imperial revivalists.

* PhlebotinumHandlingRequirements: Hethrir and Rillao's lightsabers lack a traditional on/off switch. Instead, igniting them requires one to use the Force to complete an internal electrical circuit. Hethrir uses the ability to do so as a test for his apprentices (and isn't above rigging it if he doesn't like the apprentice).
