''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.
