Tyrant's Test is a Star Wars Legends novel written by Michael P. Kube-McDowell. It is the third and final installment of the Black Fleet Crisis trilogy, and it was first published on December 1, 1996 by Bantam Spectra.
Faced with an alarming image of Han as a battered hostage of the Yevetha, Chewbacca takes on an urgent mission. Meanwhile, Leia calls upon the Senate to take a stand and eliminate the Yevetha threat—even at the cost of Han's life. As a former Imperial governor takes his battle to the runaway Qella spaceship, Luke's continuing search for his mother brings him dangerously close to Nil Spaar's deadly forces. And as the Yevetha close in on the forces of the New Republic, Luke takes a desperate gamble with an invisible weapon....
Chewbacca is trying to train his son, Lumpawarrump, to be a warrior when the son's test is interrupted by news of Han Solo's capture by the Yevetha. With his son and several other Wookiees, they mount a rescue operation in the Millennium Falcon.
Meanwhile, a petition to recall Princess Leia as president has been issued, causing some issues with the coming war with the Yevetha. Some feel Leia is going to war for selfish reasons.
