"The invasion is coming, Lord Vader. But I have now bought the Empire time to prepare."
―Thrawn, to Darth Vader
The Grysk first appeared in Timothy Zahn's 2018 canon novel Thrawn: Alliances as the primary antagonists. The Grysk share several similarities with the Yuuzhan Vong species from Star Wars Legends, who originated from Del Rey's 1999-2003 book series Star Wars: The New Jedi Order, including parallels such as both being a threat to the Chiss Ascendancy hailing from the Unknown Regions and enslaving other races. Both species are also described as having sloping foreheads and skull-like faces. A major difference, however, is that the Grysk use conventional mechanical technology rather than biotechnology.

I prefer the Vong since they were true outsiders to the galaxy and the Force had no effect on them, plus their hatred of machines

For some reason, i visualize the Grysk to look more like the Noghri(the Legends version).

I think Vong Could be Canon. Probably the same race with the Grysks but different factions (One use Techo and Other use Biotech) but I don't think they will immunity the force.

Never was into the EU but from what I've read on a wiki years ago the Vong are an outside galactic invasion force that is a third faction to the Empire and the Rebels?

They sound absolutely terrible, the fifth wheel on the Star Wars car. What is the purpose of introducing a third faction into something so simplistically structured as Star Wars?

What I loved about the Vong is that they were truly alien to the denizens of the Galaxy. They were wholly different in philosophy, technology, their relationship with the Force, their origin... something truly other, almost cosmic horror like in the ability of the protagonists to understand and comprehend.

The Grysk just seem watered down. Just another alien race, another would be conqueror.

NJO is when I gave up on the post-ROTJ EU. I have this really distinct memory of reading one of the first two books in that line and thinking, this isn't fun anymore.

The war was over and they needed a new villain.

IIRC, They Need a New Bad Guy because People who follow the EU kind of bored with the Empire.
