I probably read this book back in middle school as I used to read a ton of Star Wars and Star Trek books back then. Anyways, now I have read it again.
I believe I read a while back that the new Star Wars movies have removed all of the Expanded Universe books from canon. So it was a little weird to be reading this book and be thinking all along that it isn't really "true." Of course it is fiction, but now it is like discarded fiction. Still a quick enjoyable read though.
