    3: Derek "Hobbie" Klivian
    4: Wes Janson

    5: Kyp Durron
    6: Jaina Solo
    7: Garik "Face" Loran
    8: Ton Phanan

    9: Gavin Darklighter

    (assuming all pilots are at the level when they were at their peak)

    Craft: Tie Defenders

    Lead: Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader
    2.) Baron Soontir Fel
    3.) Jaina Solo
    4.) Kyp Durron

    5.) Luke Skywalker
    6.) Jag Fel
    7.) Wes Janson
    8.) Hobbie Klivan

    9.) Wedge Antilles
    10.) Tycho Celchu
    11.) Corran Horn
    12.) Anakin Solo

    Others Considered:
    That Prequel Era Jedi - can't remember name so not put in.
    Turr Phennir - Would have had to split up Hobbie and Janson, can't do that plus Hobbie and Janson both fought in a battle against Phennir and Phennir ran away.
    All of Rogue Squadron - But no.
    Pash Cracken - I believe him to just not be as good as the rest here.
    Kell - He's not as good. Wraith Squadron worked out good, but none of them were really THAT good at flying ships.
    Myn - see above
    Gavin - He's good, very good, but not good enough. Only ones he could possibly replace are janson and hobbie and they did a good deal of his training. They are better.
    Jace Paol - Well, Gavin did beat him in that exercise and he wasn't that good, so......
    Stele - don't know enough about her

    I think that this squadron could take on just about anybody.

    I have only read one of the X-Wing books so I don't know all of the pilots. Here my best shot though.

    Craft: X-Wing (it depends on the mission but X's are best all around)

    Lead: Luke Skywalker
    2. Anakin Skywalker
    3. Wedge Antilles
    4. Tycho Celchu

    5. Jaina Solo
    6. Anakin Solo
    7. Jacen Solo (Not that could but formidable with Anakin + Jaina)
    8. Kyp Durron

    9. Corran Horn
    10. Gavin Darklighter
    11. Wes Janson
    12. Hobby Klivan

    Other Considerations
    - Ben Skywalker - promising... lets see his stuff
    - Han Solo - Top 5 Non-jedi pilots but doesn't do small crafts
    - Baron + Jagged Fell - I have heard they were good but have not read a book with them
    Ithink I'm missing somebody...

    Jarik totally read my mind, right down the type of craft they'd fly, except for one pilot. I'd replace Anakin with Ooryl, because I'm ever so fond of that Gand, and him and Corran would work effectively together. I really like Pash, too, so he'd be a suitable replacement for Anakin, as well. Come to think of it, I like Alinn Varth, as well. Decisions, decisions. :D

    Damn straight. I especially liked how you mixed up the flights. One would generally put the Jedi in one flight, the Rogues in another, etc., but I think they'd fly more effectively all mixed in.

    Yeah, that's what I thought and I tried to put the best leaders and improvisers in all the different flights hence Vader, Luke, and Wedge are all in different flights and leading them. Then Baron, Jag, and Tycho are all split up as seconds.

    I think my first flight came out the best, then 2 and 3 are pretty even with 2 MAYBE having a slight advantage. This was all done unintentionally.

    Hmm.. yes, this is a shameless plug, but for the best squadron, check out the link in my signature, and then follow it to "Rogue Squadron Roster". :)

    I would actually switch Kyp with Anakin Skywalker, move Anakin to lead, then switch Wedge with Corran and Tycho with Gavin. This would put in better leadership and chemistry. It's good to have the Jedi working together like Jaina, Jacen and Anakin did in Onslaught or Ruin, I can't remember which.

    5+6: Its always been like that
    7+8: Cant break them up
    9+10: They would be a good wingpair. I think Ooryl isnt as good as Pash

    "hey now! what about Myn Donos and Kell Tainer?"

    I had both of them in my "Others Considered". Frankly, they just weren't good enough to make it. Everybody else was better.

    Myn Donos and Kell Tainer rule!! But I agree, I just don't think their flying skills are good enough. But their ground combat skills are excellent.

    I don't really know who I'd have in the squadron, but they'd be flying Tie Defenders with spork launchers in place of all the cannons and missle tubes.

    Craft: Tie Defenders-I love flying them in the games.

    *=Flight leader

    *Lead: Wedge!
    2. Tycho
    3. Gavin
    4. Asyr

    *5. Soontir Fel
    6. Anikan Solo
    7. Wes
    8. Hobbie

    *9. Corran
    10. Kyp
    11. Jagged Fel
    12. Jania

    By wing pairs(Good idea DB)
    1&2: Wedge is the best there is, and Tycho just goes with Wedge.
    3&4: Gavin and Asyr, what else needs to be said.
    5&6: Fel is supposed to be one of the best. Anikan could learn a lot from him.
    7&8: Wes and Hobbie-can't break them up.
    9&10: Corran is my favorite. He's great with working with others, and may be able to balance/tone down Kyp.
    11&12: Both great pilots and it flows from the attraction Stackpole hinted at in Ruin.

    Wedge is good but is by far not the best. Luke beat him regularly. Jag Fel absolutely kicked his ass in all their simulations. He only fought Baron Soontir Fel once and Fel had him till a Y-Wing helped out. That one is still undecided. How could Vader not be better? And there are probably others who are better too.

    Okay, even if Wedge can be beaten by a very few people, he still is the best choice for lead. He has had a ton of experience, he knows how to deal with people, he knows tactics and strategies(at fighter level and beyond). And besides all of that, he is still just about the best there is. Luke beat him at one time, but he's gotten better and Luke's skills have atrophied. Jaged Fel is a little young and no where near as experienced to be in lead position, even though he's a great pilot.

    I don't care if Wedge has been beaten before. He still has the experience, and the expertise to lead a fighter squadron.

    Let me put it this way. In sports, even the best get beat once in a while. So I'm sure the same could be said about STAR WARS.

    He may be the best choice for lead. However, I would still take Anakin/Vader as lead over him and I did. He has lots of experience, good control on force, is just good. Luke lead Rogue Squadron before Wedge did, while Wedge was in it. I would rather have Luke lead. Then might rather have Baron Soontir Fel lead. He was an extremely good leader in the X-Wing comics. Not sure who's better: Wedge or Baron Soontir Fel.

    Just my opinions. I do rate Wedge very highly and he is the leader of one of my flights: third flight if I remember correctly.
