It is 509 ABY and the galaxy is at relative peace. The New Republic is thriving and the Jedi are more prosperous and successful than they've been in centuries past. The Sith are a struggling and dying breed, just barely clinging onto life...only a small conglomeration of Sith Lords existing in the vast underground expanses of Korriban. However in this relative state of calm, a new and unimaginable threat is about to rear it's head. You have the Jedi and the Sith existing on two extreme sides of the spectrum, yet there is a unique and very powerful faction on the horizon that cannot be influenced or harmed by either. A threat so dire and unprecedented that it somehow exists outside of the bounds of The Force itself. In order to confront this near apocalyptic chasm of incoming legions, the whole of the galaxy must somehow unify or be utterly annihilated. Whether it be Jedi Knight, Sith Lord or anything in between matters not to the dreaded terror known only as...The Yuuzhan Vong. They consider the entire universe as prey to be subjugated, enslaved and destroyed.
