There are hints throughout the Alex stories that she is Force-sensitive. Did Alex receive formal training at the Jedi Academy after “Betrayal by Knight”?
Alex remained on Garos IV for more than a year after BBK, helping with mopping up operations as Imperial forces were routed from her homeworld. She stayed to ensure establishment of a new government with resistance leader Magir Paca. Once the NR was firmly entrenched on Garos, Alex joined a group of New Republic commandos on various missions before heading to the Jedi Praxeum. [I’m working on that story, which answersTim Zahn’s challenge: how did Alex lose those fingers!
update Dec. 2009: Shades of Gray is published!
