''The Crystal Star'' is an oddity in ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends''. Released in TheNineties during the indecisive seeming period before the release of ''ThePhantomMenace'', this book was the work of science-fiction author Creator/VondaNMcIntyre. She had previously written a number of books set in the ''Franchise/StarTrekExpandedUniverse'', and the influence certainly shows.

Added DiffLines:

* InNameOnly: A major criticism of this book is that it's not really very ''Star Wars''-y at all; if anything, the plot is more akin to a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' story. (Which is unsurprising, given that Vonda [=McIntyre=] had written a few ''Star Trek'' novels in the past.)

* AntiVillain: Waru, Type II and IV. It simply wants to return to [[EldritchLocation its home]], and while it did heal people, it needed from time to time their energy to sustain itself, killing them.
