X-Wing: Wraith Squadron
X-Wing: Wedge’s Gamble
X-Wing: Rogue Squadron
In this book, Wedge Antillies wants to create a new X-Wing squadron that specializes not in just piloting skills, but in more commando type skills from machinery to bombs to snipers and so on. He wants to create a squadron that is as dangerous on the ground than in the air. Let me just say that this was a brilliant move by the powers that be in the Star Wars creative team. We saw quickly in the second book of the X-Wing series X-Wing: Wedge’s Gamble that there are just as many ground missions as flying missions in the life of an X-Wing squadron. Wedge would have noticed this in his time with this new Rogue Squadron, and the fact that this is recognized by Wedge. Then, he wanted to create a team better equipped than his Rogues to handle these ground missions was completely logical, and I applaud the logical next step that Allston takes in continuing this saga.
