|Plot Summary of Dark Tide I: Onslaught - Star Wars, The New Jedi Order 2|
|"The New Republic gets a new enemy, the Yuuzhan Vong. Not
only is Yuuzhan Vong barely pronounceable, but worse, these
are a tough race of insect-like warriors who are resistant
to the force. They eat Jedi Knights for breakfast. Luke
and Jacen and Jaina attempt to avoid becoming appetizers."
Steve, Resident Scholar
|"The aliens known as the Yuuzhan Vong are still playing out their invasion. Han Solo is without his old friend, Chewbacca, and the rest are attempting to fight off the evil aliens."

|"While the New Republic futily tries to figure out the mysterious Yhuuzan Vong, Luke Skywalker dispatches his Jedi to the corners of the galaxy to uncover as much as they can.
Anakin Solo acompanies Mara Jade to the world of Dantooine, to take care of her while she combats her mysterious illness. While there, they discover a Yhuuzan Vong presence, who has no plans of leaving. And what's worse, the refugees from the worlds that the Vong have taken, are heading for that very planet.
Corran Horn along with his self-centered Jedi partner, is sent to a remote planet known as Bimmeal to find a missing archaeologist, who have uncovered the fifty year old remains of a Yhuuzan Vong. While there, he discovers a Vong camp that is holding prisoners and testing a cruel method of slave control.
Jaina Solo has joined Rogue Squadron to help the New Republic military while Luke Skywalker and Jacen Solo, travel to the first planet that the Vong hit at the edge of the galaxy. They discover similar Vong encampments that along with developing slaves, are building hundreds of their space fighters.
Their findings all have something in common which is that the Vong are getting slaves for their forces, and building ships for their troops.
They know that the Vong are getting ready for an all out invasion. They just don't know how to stop them."
