ok, tiny bit biased as i'm a huge Star Wars fan (apart from episodes 1,2 & 3 of course!) And it was nice to see one of the minor characters from the original films getting his chance to shine! After all Wedge Antilles was the only person in the Star Wars universe to go up against two Death Stars and survive! Not even Luke Skywalker himself did that! ( )

Michael A. Stackpole’s Star Wars: X-Wing: Rogue Squadron launched the X-Wing series of novels set in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Bantam Spectra published this first novel in 1996 and introduced a new Rogue Squadron formed by Wedge Antilles while also introducing Corran Horn, Mirax Terrik, Erisi Dlarit, and Tycho Celchu. The book appeared six months after the first issue of Dark Horse Comics’ Star Wars: X-Wing: Rogue Squadron comics, written by Stackpole and Darko Macan, and the subsequent 35 issues of the comic book series and first nine novels, which Stackpole and Aaron Allston wrote, help to expand on the events after Return of the Jedi while featuring the various Imperial warlords and skirmishes as the New Republic consolidated power that characterized the Bantam era of Star Wars fiction.

The novel focuses on the recruitment of the new members of Rogue Squadron and their first missions, establishing a new base and helping to safeguard supplies as the New Republic moves closer to the galactic core. Further, Stackpole drops some hints that Corran Horn is Force-sensitive, such as when he instinctively knows something is wrong just before an Imperial ambush (pg. 189) and when he senses Lujayne Forge’s death (pgs. 195, 207). In this, Stackpole foreshadowed events that he would further develop in his 1998 novel, I, Jedi, which followed Horn’s quest to become a Jedi and was the first Star Wars novel written in the first-person. Stackpole also introduces Gavin Darklighter, the cousin of Luke Skywalker’s friend Biggs from Tatooine. Through Wedge and Gavin, Stackpole references the actions of the squadron in the Star Wars trilogy, with Gavin echoing Luke’s comment about Beggar’s Canyon (pg. 303) and Wedge echoing to Corran Luke’s order for Wedge to break off during the Death Star trench run (pg. 348). The remainder of the novel focuses on the New Republic’s efforts to attack and hold the Imperial stronghold on Borleais, laying the groundwork for a future invasion of Coruscant and future novels. In focusing on the political situation shortly after Return of the Jedi, Stackpole works to show that, while the galaxy at large viewed the Emperor’s death as the end of the Empire, there was work remaining, though it was more difficult to rally the fledgling New Republic and its allies without the imminent threat (pg. 66). Further, he shows the public perception of the Jedi eradication, with a character saying, “Vader was the last Jedi” (pg. 32). In order to situate his work between those already published, Stackpole references Kathy Tyers’ The Truce at Bakura (pg. 51) as well as the Katana fleet from Timothy Zahn’s Dark Force Rising (pgs. 68, 299).

While Bantam published the original nine X-Wing novels between 1996-1999, Del Ray and LucasBooks published a tenth novel in 2012, set over thirty years later concurrent with the Fate of the Jedi series, specifically its final novel, Fate of the Jedi: Apocalpyse. Since the post-Disney continuity reboot, Disney-Lucasfilm Books began publishing the Alphabet Squadron trilogy in 2019 that are set in the same time period and fulfil a similar narrative purpose as the first nine X-Wing novels, though they incorporate material and references from films, television, video games, and novels in the new canon.

Okay. I can't remember the plot *at all*. But I do remember that I really enjoyed reading this series despite being a bit sceptical on the outset (ventured into it based on gushing reviews from a friend). I wouldn't know how it holds up right now though. Tempted to do a re-read... but TBR pile so win. LOL.

To George Lucas
The unverse he created is so vital and magical that I remember not only when and where I first saw the film, but when and where I first saw the trailer for the film. If someone had told me that I's be writing in that universe now, I'd have told them they were insane.
Once again, Mr. Lucas, you make dreams come true.
