After Kyp turns evil, the Republic is pretty displeased with the Jedi. Eventually the Jedi apprentices rise up, Luke gets his body back, and Kyp turns back to the Light Side. But what I really remember about this book is the relationship between Wedge and the tormented scientist Qwi Xux. The smartest children of her planet were stolen and forced to create terrible weapons for the Empire; those who failed had to watch their homelands bombed into oblivion. After surviving this, Qwi is highly-strung and racked with guilt. But she still has a brilliant mind, and with Wedge's tender help she begins to become a person instead of just a problem-solving machine. The duo did not stay together, but I really liked the evolution of their romance.
