''Star Wars: Union'' is a four-issue comic book series written by MichaelStackpole and illustrated by Robert Teranishi, set in the StarWarsExpandedUniverse, taking place shortly after the HandOfThrawn duology.

The impossible has, in fact, occurred: the [[TheEmpire Imperial]] [[TheRemnant Remnant]] and the [[TheAlliance New Republic]] have signed a peace treaty. Wait, sorry, that's not the impossible part. This is: [[TheyDo Luke Skywalker proposed to Mara Jade]].

It's Wedding of the Century time.

And not everybody's happy about it. The press starts spinning scenarios about "a Jedi power-base to establish a Force Empire," the plans for a small intimate wedding were scuttled the moment Threepio got involved, Mara can't find a dress, she and Luke are ''both'' having BadDreams, and a splinter cell of Imperials figures this is the time to strike...
->'''Han''': On a scale of one to the Death Star? It's about...heck, kid, just elope.

C'mon. Did anybody really think this was going to go smoothly?

----
In addition to the inherent ''StarWars'' character and universe tropes, this series provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: Mara Jade.
* BarBrawl: Luke's bachelor party, organized by Han and Wedge, is in a seedy tavern. The splinter cell sees this as a good chance to strike...when the entire room is either ex-smugglers, Jedi, [[FourStarBadass military officers who earned it]], or some combination thereof. [[WhatAnIdiot Oops.]]
* ContinuityNod: All over the place:
** "That dream I had gave me a bad feeling--" [[CatchphraseInterruptus "Don't say it."]]
** As Karrde and Booster discuss the good news, we see the ''Errant Venture'' beginning to get its bright red paint job, which is complete by ''[[OutboundFlight Survivor's Quest]]''.
** Cameos by [[JediAcademyTrilogy Kam, Tionne]], [[XWingSeries Wedge, Tycho, Wes, Hobbie, Corran, Mirax, Booster...]] the list goes on.
*** Three Rogues sprung into action, showing that Rogues aren't only good at flying.
**** As well as a completely nonsensical cameo by [[DarkEmpire Empatojayos Brand]], who by that point had been dead for 8 years.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Again, all over the place, with standouts including both weddings and Luke forgiving a attacker.
* {{Fanservice}}: The bathhouse scene. Pretty tasteful as fanservice goes.
* {{Forgiveness}}
* HappilyMarried: [[CaptainObvious Luke and Mara]]. Also, we're reminded of the successes of Han and Leia and Corran and Mirax.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: The Imperial saboteurs.
* InkSuitActor: Kam Solusar is clearly based on Bruce Willis.
* MyOwnPrivateIDo: A private ceremony just for the Jedi, and a public one for the galaxy.
* [[{{Narm/StarWars}} Narm]]: Some of the romantic dialogue. It was written by Stackpole, so this is probably to be expected.
* NoodleIncident: [[XWingSeries Wes and Hobbie]] apparently did something with a champagne fountain at a different wedding.
* PimpedOutDress: Some of the possible ideas from Mara's fitting. The one Mara ends up with is on the reasonable side.
