Introduction (blurb)

In their first few weeks in space, Captain Jonathan Archer and the crew of the Enterprise have already discovered several new species and explored strange new worlds. But each planet brings new discoveries... and new dangers.

The Fazi, whose ultraregulated culture ranges from strict conversation protocols to unvarying building designs, inhabit half of a planet discovered by Enterprise. But after a disastrous first contact with the ruler of the Fazi, Archer must depend on Vulcan science officer T'Pol and communication specialist Ensign Hoshi Sato to help him mend relations with the people of this planet, and unravel the mystery of the other creatures living on the world.

Star Wars Fanon

The Star Wars wiki of fan invention.

By the Book was a fanon series of loosely-related missions exploring the adventures of three inhabitants of Naboo during the Thrawn campaign of terror.

The events of the campaign took place in 8 to 9 ABY. The campaign revolved around two conflicts: an evil cult in Chommell Sector and Moff Panaka's attempt to reannex Naboo to the Empire. The campaign exists in the same fanon continuity as other campaigns of which Justin Gann was gamemaster.
