They are sleek, swift, and deadly. The are the X-wing fighters. And as the struggle rages across the vastness of space, the fearless men and women who pilot them risk both their lives and their machines. Their mission: to defend the Rebel Alliance against a still-powerful and battle-hardened Imperial foe in a last-ditch effort to control the stars!

Its very name strikes fear into enemy hearts. So when Rebel hero Wedge Antilles rebuilds the legendary Rogue Squadron, he seeks out only the best -- the most skilled, the most daring X-wing pilots. Through arduous training and dangerous missions, he weeds out the weak from the strong, assembling a group of hard-bitten warriors willing to fight, ready to die. Antilles knows the grim truth: that even with the best X-wing jockeys in the galaxy, many will not survive their near-suicidal missions. But when Rogue Squadron is ordered to assist in the assault on the heavily fortified Imperial stronghold of Black Moon, even the bravest must wonder if any at all will survive. . . .

Read from the Book

You''re good, Corran, but you''re no Luke Skywalker.   Corran Horn''s cheek still burned at the memory of Commander Antilles''s evaluation of his last simulator exercise.  The line had been a simple comment, not meant to be cruel nor delivered that way, but it cut deep into Corran.   I''ve never tried to suggest I''m that good of a pilot. He shook his head.   No, you just wanted it to be self-evident and easily recognized by everyone around you.   Reaching out he flicked the starter switches for the X-wing simulator''s engines.  "Green One has four starts and is go." All around him in the cockpit various switches, buttons, and monitors flashed to life.  "Primary and secondary power is at full." Ooryl Qrygg, his Gand wingman, reported similar start-up success in a high-pitched voice.  "Green Two is operational." Green Three and Four checked in, then the external screens came alive projecting an empty starfield.  "Whistler, have you finished the navigation calculations?" The green and white R2 unit seated behind Corran hooted, then the navdata spilled out over.  Corran''s main monitor He punched a button sending the same coordinates out to the other pilots in Green Flight.  "Go to light speed and rendezvous on the Redemption." As Corran engaged the X-wing''s hyperdrive, the stars elongated themselves into white cylinders
