    Yes he is padawanskywalker :)
    He flew with the Rebel Alliance in both the Battle of Yavin and the Battle of Endor.

    He is perhaps one of the greatest pilots to ever fly during the Civil War period.

    He was disabled at Yavin covering Skywalker, and managed to survive Vader. He was one of the defenders at Hoth, and he flew with Lando into the Second Death Star and helped vape it. In the post-ROTJ EU he has been one of the best pilots in the New Republic/Rebel Alliance and eventually became a general.

    No, "heck" is a euphamism substituting for profanity.

    Blasphemy is defined as "irreverence toward something considered sacred or inviolable," which some (like Jeff 42) would classify Wedge as.

    Dictionary, kids! Dictionary! ;)

    Who is Wedge? That's harsh.

    Wedge = greater than all of us.

    Mah!

    Wedge > Crap.

    But not by much. He is pretty insignificant, but rather hard to miss if you are actually watching the screen while the movies are playing. :p

    Insignificant? He was one half of the team that destroyed the second Death Star, plus he was the first one to take down an AT-AT at the Battle of Hoth.

    Wedge is an anchor character, he surrounds us,penetrates us, he binds the galaxy together. He shows us all that a simple human can change the course of history.

    He fought bravley everytime we saw him on film. Wether braving Walkers on an Ice world or giving Luke just enough time, Wedge is your man. Behold Wedge, man for the ages!

    (i though that last part was pretty good myself. BTW have you noticed the way we react whenever we here that somone hasnt heard of a major character. Disturbing this is!)

    I wouldn't really classify Wedge as a major character.

    In important battles - yes.
    Token survivor - yes.
    Minor character - yes.

    Just because someone else isn't as big of a geek as you or I doesn't mean you can make fun of them. When I was your age, it was the geeks who were made fun of!

    Now that would be weird if Wedge was Obi-Wan's uncle :p .

    For those of you non-Wedge fanatics, that means that Wedge's actor, Denis Lawson, is Ewan McGregor's uncle. :p
