What Are the VONG!? (EU NJO)

Never read a single Book of NJO, but in the JK forums, we were talking about the Vongs. It seems like they are powerful, that makes a jedi power useless..

Who are they? And how come the force doesnt work with them?

thx.

Please highlight to enlighten yourself

spoiler:
The Vong are a species from another galaxy that are warrior like and have had the Fore stripped from them before they were expelled from their previous galaxy.

Appearantly it does, but on a different level.

So I've heard from those who've read it.

spoiler:
The Force doesn't work on them because they were "stripped" or "removed" from the Force long ago in their home galaxy, before they invaded ours.

Lightsabers DO work on them, its just that the warriors wear a tough armor called vonduun crab armor that can partially deflect a lightsaber blow, thus making it harder to pierce/cut through with a lightsaber. Their weak spots (where the armor doesn't cover the body as much) are the armpits, neck, and legs.

Is that a spoiler from TUF? Cuz I don't remember that in the other books... and I'm just now starting TUF.

And the Force does work on them, but like Jan said, at a different level. Jacen used the force to control a pit of the "baby" amphistaffs. Anakin could sense Yuuzan Vong. Tahiri is part Yuuzhan Vong.
