    I think KJA and KKR do a good job of trying to make Wedge an important character. It only feels off until you remember that the X-Wing novels suffered a sort of second-class status because they didn't follow Luke, Leia, and Han, and thus that characterization of Wedge wasn't considered important until Zahn made Corran and Wedge major players in Vision of the Future.

    Fair point. I don't know what that time was like since I got my first book in 98 or so roughly and didn't get some of the Bantam novels until after 2000. I got the Jedi Academy trilogy first and the Thrawn trilogy and the X-Wings later, way later.

    I read a few things before I got to the X-Wing series: Hand of Thrawn; I, Jedi; Union; then Thrawn Trilogy. (I was following my big brother Luke's recommended order). Then I got into Truce at Bakura (which I loved Wedge in) and the Jedi Academy Trilogy (which I wasn't any sort of happy with Wedge in, because who was this blue featherbrain?)

    I don't hate Qui, but I do think that Allston's scene with Qui and Wedge in Starfighters of Adumar is really, really well thought through. I just wish other authors had done more than have her be annoying in Ruin afterwards. :)

    So Wraith Squadron has been asked to relocate here and I think it is a good idea to pay homage to our creator Wedge Antilles with this fabulous squadron/intelligence unit here. If anyone would like to join please send me a PM.

    Also if anyone has a nickname they'd like or a specialty we can come up with a nickname for let me know.

    Wraith Squadron
    Wraith 1: General s65horsey (aka Sey or Lead)
    Wraith 2: Lt. DarthXan318 (aka Techgirl)

    Wraith 5: FO runjedirun

    XO, standing by.

    Squadmates! Sound off!

    @DarthXan318, @Katana_Sundancer, @Runjedirun, @Sinrebirth

    For our first order of business, I propose that we all toast our glorious founder, Wedge Antilles! Here's to the best pilot in the galaxy! And probably the best dad, too! :)

    Katana is Force sensitive and has a lightsaber. Not trained as a Jedi though... At least, not yet.

    *walks out with Kettch attached to herself*

    Is this a good enough tribute?

    Also people can move up ranks if they recruit members to the squadron (up to rank of Captain).

    Katana - sounds good! I'll try to come up with a callsign or nickname for that.

    Cheers.

    If you can come up with a nickname for a gym rat, marathon runner who loves an unnamed drummer...go for it.

    Edit to add: I'm good at hand to hand combat.

    I believe it is, Sey!

    Have you read Mercy Kill yet, @Runjedirun? I have a couple of nicknames that might fit that, but I don't want to spoil anything. :)

    Also, I believe I recruited two peeps, so can I get bumped up to Cap? :)

    Patience. We'll give it a few more days to see if anyone else wants to join and then we'll plan galaxy domination.

    With Ewoks and Dinner Squadron, right?

    Hey, there's a new line of leggings, tops and swimsuits out here in Australia; just recently got full approval from George Lucas. One of them was R2-D2! So, is it not illegal to wear a droid as a swimsuit then? :p
