Rogue Squadron

Rogue Squadron is a fictional elite X-wing starfighter squadron in the Star Wars universe. It was founded by Wedge Antilles and Luke Skywalker, and among its members are Corran Horn and Gavin Darklighter. The squadron is famous for achieving seemingly impossible missions. They were at the Battle of Yavin before even being formed, and were instrumental in the Battle of Hoth and the Battle of Endor.

The comic series by Michael A. Stackpole and Dark Horse Comics tells of the first reformation of the squadron after Endor.

The book series, also by Stackpole, tells of the squadron's second reformation, two years after Endor, and details the capture of Coruscant. The titles in that series are Rogue Squadron, Wedge's Gamble, The Krytos Trap and The Bacta War. Corran Horn, one of Rogue Squadron's pilots, is the subject of I, Jedi, another, longer book by Stackpole.

Another series of books, written by Aaron Allston, follows Wraith Squadron, a squad formed after the Bacta War by Antilles which worked closely with the Rogues. These books are Wraith Squadron, Iron Fist, and Solo Command.

Stackpole returned to the series with Isard's Revenge, and Allston ended it with Starfighters of Adumar, a novel about Antilles and his closest compatriots, Tycho Celchu, Wes Janson, and Hobbie Klivian.

Years later, the Rogues fought against the Yuuzhan Vong in the New Jedi Order.

There are also two video games put out by LucasArts, "Star Wars: Rogue Squadron" and "Star Wars: Rogue Leader".
