Based on Rogue Squadron by Michael A. Stackpole - what if Ysanne Isard had convinced the Emperor’s Hammer to battle against the Rebels rather than trying to do it herself?

Battle Reviews

LT Marlore Julren



Honestly this is a good first impression of what the unit can build for a custom mission. I have really gotten invested in this story against Rogue Squadron, feeling like I was their counterpart. This mission pack never stops, pitting you against the odds as you fly against large formations of X, Y, A, and B wings all together. My only criticism is the enormous difficulty on hard mode, but it is a matter of just getting used to the whole issue. I personally am looking forward to do more of these mission packs as soon as I'm able to.




Fun, well-balanced battle. I played it on Medium and it seemed very fair. No bugs or issues whatsoever for me. All around solid one!

GN Master



Great battle. Fantastic first attempt at mission creation.
Well built and fun. Use of custom emails, crests and wavs is a great addition that really adds to the mission.
My own special appearance in the emails and radio messages was a nice bonus.

A very well crafted battle. Remember to install the wav pack, it really adds to the experience

The Expanded Universe has held a special place in many of our hearts and minds, me especially. One of my favorite 
book series was the X-Wing Series by Michael A Stackpole and Aaron Allston. It was these stories that motivated me 
to pick up X-Wing Alliance back in the early 2000's. Here I am setting out to make at least a series of 4 battles 
retelling the battles and story of the initial four books of the X-Wing series.

This battle is based upon the story laid out in the book X-Wing: Rogue Squadron by Michael A Stackpole. Here is a 
bit of the story encase you have not read the book.

Wedge Antilles, veteran of both Death Star attacks, hero of the Rebellion, has set out to reform Rogue Squadron 
with the aid of fellow Death Star II veteran Tycho Celchu. The group of pilots he has assembled contains Gavin 
Darklighter and Corran Horn. Who will soon go on to be legends of their own in the Expanded Universe.

But what if Ysanne Isard had convinced the Emperor’s Hammer to battle against the Rebels rather than trying to do 
it herself?
