A Destiny Altered is an Alternate Universe Fic where Anakin survived Star by Star, beginning minutes before the time of his canonical death. In this continuity, Tahiri returns to save Anakin as he begins his Heroic Sacrifice, granting them both a Heroic Second Wind. Although similar to Legends canon in the first two chapters, the divergence becomes more and more profound as the fanfic continues.
New Jedi Order spoilers up to Star by Star will be unmarked.

This fanfic provides examples of:
- The Coup: Unlike the Legends timeline, Alyssia tries to take control of the Hapes by force with the aid of the Yuuzhan Vong, kicked off by the murder of Ta'a Chume.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Lumiya appears much earlier than her Legacy of the Force re-appearance. Here, she appears in the second chapter on Hapes as Brisha Syo.
- Empty Shell: Victims of the Spell of Storms become this, such as when Teneniel Djo does this to Alyssia.
- Heroic RRoD: Anakin and Tahiri pass out from one on the Baanu Raas after their Heroic Second Wind ends.
- Heroic Second Wind: Anakin and Tahiri both get a brief one when Tahiri returns to save him.
- Too Kinky to Torture: Irek Ismaren tries to overwhelm Tahiri and Anakin with his Emotion Bomb powers. Tahiri resists his attempts to give her pain due to her Yuuzhan Vong personality.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: By the second chapter, Khalee Lah and Harrar are dead. The latter's death is especially surprising due to his importance in the latter half of the NJO series.
