Synopsis:
Wedge Antilles is a combat-hardened X-Wing pilot, one of the only fliers to survive the missions against both Death Stars. After those two assignments and his post as leader of Rogue Squadron, you'd think he'd seen everything. But when he heads a rescue and retrieval for a downed man on the planet Mrisst, he finds something he'd never expected: a culture that hates the Empire and hates the Alliance even more!
When Rogue Squadron leader Wedge Antilles is downed in a bloody battle against Imperial All-Terrain Scout Transports, he is forced to form an uneasy alliance with the Cilpari natives, whose dislike for the Rebels is only dwarfed by their hatred for the Empire. Wedge must regroup Rogue Squadron before the Cilpari alliance is shattered, and rejoin the battle to save the galaxy!
Tycho Celchu has infiltrated the Imperial Forces. Now he can communicate vital strategic information that will give the Rebellion an upper hand! But when he's pressed to lead a raid on his old Rogue Squadron teammates, he must choose between saving his comrades and serving the cause.
Tycho Celchu must make the hardest decision of his lifetime: choosing between saving his friends and supporting his cause. Disguised as an Imperial fighter pilot, Rogue Squadron flyer Tycho Celchu has successfully infiltrated the Imperial troops. But success turns sour when his TIE fighter unit encounters Wedge Antilles and Rogue Squadron! If he abandons his post with the Imperial fighters, he abandons the cause of the New Republic; but if he stands his ground, he risks killing his comrades. Either way this Rebel plays, he plays a losing game...
