5 former rebel pilots hunting ex Imperials after the war
I’m sorry I reallyyy don’t like that title. I’m sure the book will be great though.
Better cover pic
I love it! Looking forward to this.

Assuming it’s bc of the different fighters. All of the letter wings.
B U X Y and A wing for the 5 pilots
Why they didn't go with the classic title Star Wars: BUXYA I just don't know.
Well, Twilight Company is my favorite new-canon novel hands down, so I am in - silly title or not. Cannot. Freaking. Wait.
This could turn out to be great. Maybe even starting a series if it sells well and gets good feedback. I haven't read anything by Freed, but he seems to have a proven track record with Star Wars.
Looking forward to the story, also not so keen on the title.
So Star Wars Operation Finale not starting Oscar Issac ;p
I'm looking forward to this one! I loved Freed's previous work and pilot stories are always fun. Any indication if this is pre or post Jakku?
Glad to see the U-wing. I think it's one of the best ship designs from the new movies. Probably my second favorite after the Resistance Bombers, which I think also are supposed to be used in the civil war era, so I'm also sad they aren't one of the choices for the cover.
I'd hope it's post-Jakku, not least because we seem to be moving into that period with current content (Last Shot, The Mandalorian....) and a group of Rebels hunting down Imperials sounds like it might tread on Aftermath's toes a little, especially if it's in the 4-5 ABY slot.
I hope Freed will include at least some Star Wars Uprising references in that!
I'm sorry but this title is quite frankly ridiculous. My first thought was alphabetti spaghetti! I think it might change....
But yes can't wait for Freed on this, first writer to get three Del rey books in the new canon?
Also chance to bring back the E-wing outside of a picture in a comic
Aurebesh Squadron would have made more sense, but the premise sounds awesome.
1977: ANH Released.
1997: Don't worry, we removed that English text on the tractor beam controls.
2019: Alphabet Squadron!
Can't wait for them to encounter a nebula and dive into that soup.
Yeah. This is exciting. Just upset 2018 isn’t getting a final book.
Alexander Freed is perfect to write this. He did a solid job with Twilight Company, but his novelization for Rogue One is one of the best things ever.
The prospect of seeing a mixed group of Rebel fighters (err... New Republic, considering the setting) is just too cool. I'll echo the U-wing love. I was so stoked with Chuck Wendig mentioned U-wings as part of the New Republic assault on Jakku. I love those things.
A mixed group of Rebel fighters just means this is meant to evoke every multiplayer SW flight game ever.
This is the coolest-sounding book with the worst-sounding title I can remember being announced for SW in quite some time.
I really hope they consider changing the title. Sounds like a joke.
There'll never be a better opportunity to bring E-Wings, K-Wings, and H-Wings into canon!
Friendly reminder that if never read anything by Alex Freed, now is a good time to check it out.
Do it! Both “Twilight Company” and the “Rogue One” novelization are amazing!!!

Not to mention his TOR comics, Blood of the Empire and The Lost Suns.
