Apparently I'mthe only one who enjoyed this book. I started this volume where KOTOR at the time ended. I don't think it would have been confusing for someone starting off at this point either. I f you were totally lost, you must also have been lost the first time you watched Star Wars episode four. What kind a name is Darth and why is he in this suit? For that matter why are these people rebels, and why are they rebelling?
There are more stories and movies that start in the middle of an ongoing plot to name, but you can figure it out as you go, or read the intro to the story. The stories taken from KOTOR I do not think were made to be the driving force. Just the back story to where and when plot concepts and people came from. I'm not sure why the other reviewers didn't like it. I didn't experiance the same gripes that they did.

STAR WARS: VECTOR, by Dark Horse Comics head honcho Randy Stradley's own admission, was born out of financial concerns: If Marvel & DC were making so much money crossing over their characters, why shouldn't Dark Horse be able to get on board that gravy train themselves? Enter VECTOR, an interesting idea gone horribly, horribly wrong.

The concept of VECTOR is simple enough: A story that crosses over between all four of Dark Horse's STAR WARS books. The problem is, the books take place in different eras, sometimes THOUSANDS of years apart......So how to accomplish the goal without resorting to the dreaded time-travel chestnut....?

I'll give them this much: The maguffin they use to drive the plot is certainly an original one. The execution of the plot, well....that's another story. The bulk of STAR WARS: VECTOR VOL. 1 is comprised of four issues of the STAR WARS: KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC SERIES, and as someone who has never read an issue of that series, I was totally lost for the majority of this book. Without revealing the hook upon which VECTOR is hung, there's a massive sub-plot involving "Rakghouls", the outer-space equivalent of Werewolves, and it's just a ridiculously bad device to use in a STAR WARS story. The book picks up considerably in the final two chapters, which are taken from the STAR WARS: DARK TIMES series. The art, by Douglas Wheatley, is staggeringly good, and seeing a familiar face (Darth Vader) certainly didn't hurt any, either. The final two chapters had me intrigued enough that I may return for the finale in Volume 2, but all that went before was just a sloppy, incomprehensible mess.

Vector is a book that contains both volume 5 of Knights of the Old Republic and volume 3 of Dark Times. This confused me at first, thinking to myself "Great, I started both of these series only to not find the 3rd and/or 5th volume!" I actually found out by searching for it on the Dark Horse website. Then I had to order it from an independent company off of the amazon site because I couldn't find this book anywhere, then I got frustrated when I received the book in terrible condition when I ordered it new! Although, all the pages were still there and I loved them all! I enjoy how Dark Horse combined both volumes into one book. They had the idea of creating a story that started in the old republic era and continued it 4,000 some odd years later during the empire era! The story is good but I think the art fell short compared to both previous series. I give vector an even 4/5 stars.

Vector is a crossover series that spans 4 different comic books - the 1st in the Knights of the Old Republic Series.

Chronologically this is actually KOTR Vol. 5

Spectacular installment of the KOTR series with big implications for Vol. 6. Also a great setup for the Crossover comics. It truly is one contained story in the KOTR universe that makes sense spanning all the way to the Legacy series.

The 2nd half of the book (Ch. 2) is where the character from KOTR meets Darth Vader... a little silly but still cool.

Be sure and get Vector Vol. 2, as Ch. 4 has an AMAZING payoff to the series and introduced me to the phenomenal Legacy comics.

I only purchased this volume because it had Part 3 of the Dark Times volume within it, but the overall vector storyline (that begins in the Old Republic, continues during the Dark Times era, returns in the classic trilogy era, and then completes in the New Republic era) is pretty good as well. The Dark Times series picks up immediately after the Republic series comics by Dark Horse where the Jedi are exterminated and hunted after Order 66. I really loved that gritty and dark comic series based on my favorite part of Star Wars takes: the Clone Wars. That series far surpasses both of the cartoon series' and movie's attempts at visualizing the Clone Wars.

This volume only contains the first 2 parts of the Vector storyline (so 1 volume of Old Republic comics and 1 volume of Dark Times comics- #3).

I was confused, at first, as to why there was no Dark Times volume 3; I found out before I ordered this one, so I hope that helps answer some confusion about the series.

God bless.

Chapter 1 takes over half of the book, and the artwork is terrible. The story is okay, but Celeste's face is really messed up looking and I couldn't stand looking at it at all. Here's a pic of it: [...]

Chapter 2 is a good story and the artwork is much better, but it's about half as long as Chapter 1.

Buyer's remorse. Skip this one.
