Before the Storm is a Star Wars Legends novel written by Michael P. Kube-McDowell. It is the first book in the Black Fleet Crisis trilogy, and it was first published in March 1996. A sequel, Shield of Lies, was published later that year.

Publisher's summary[]

In the blockbuster bestselling tradition of Heir to the Empire comes this thrilling addition to the Star Wars saga, as peace gives way to a dire new threat…

It is a time of tranquillity for the New Republic. The remnants of the Empire now lie in complete disarray, and the reemergence of the Jedi Knights has brought power and prestige to the fledgling government on Coruscant. Yesterday's Rebels have become today's administrators and diplomats, and the factions that fought against Imperial tyranny seem united in savoring the fruits of peace.

But the peace is short-lived. A restless Luke must journey to his mother's homeworld in a desperate and dangerous quest to find her people. An adventurous Lando must seize a mysterious spacecraft that has weapons of enormous destructive power and an unknown mission. And Leia, a living symbol of the New Republic's triumph, must face down a ruthless leader of the Duskhan League, an arrogant Yevetha who seems bent on a genocidal war that could shatter the fragile unity of the New Republic…and threaten its very survival.

Continuity[]

The Imperial Order of Battle discovered in a crippled Star Destroyer is named in reference to the author's daughter. It consists of her initials and date of birth (given in the dedication).
