\n* YouWouldntShootMe: When Iella Wessiri is holding Fliry Vorru at gunpoint after thwarting his escape attempt from Thyferra, he confidently states that he's familiarized himself with all of Wedge's group and knows she wouldnt kill an unarmed man who's already surrendered. Iella agrees that she wouldn't. [[SubvertedTrope But points out that her companion has no such compunctions, and hands the blaster to Elscol Loro.]] [[spoiler:[[ZigZaggedTrope Iella had in fact switched the blaster to "stun" before doing so, to guarantee that Vorru would in fact be captured alive.]]]]

* BiologicalWeaponsSolveEverything: The Wraiths avoid a face to face meeting with some of Zsinj's men by infecting them with a contagious disease while on shore leave, so that they have to quarantine themselves. The moral issues of bio warfare (made more severe by the shadow of Isard's Krytos plague in the previous series) are evaded by Phanan deliberately selecting a disease that, while highly unpleasant, is rarely lethal given access to a proper medical facility and works its way of the victim's system in a week or two.

The comics are collectively titled '''[[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_X-Wing_Rogue_Squadron Rogue Squadron]]'''. The first issues were published in 1995, and the series ended [[NoEnding abruptly]] in late 1998. Stackpole (see below) certainly had a hand in them, but exactly how much influence he had appears to vary from issue to issue and arc to arc. These are set not very long after [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi the Battle of Endor]]. Initially the comics were supposed to run through three arcs, about twelve issues, but they ran for a good thirty-five issues, not counting the bonus short comic "Rogue Squadron One Half" or the prequel '''[[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/X-Wing:_Rogue_Leader Rogue Leader,]]''' which was a three-issue arc that came out in 2005, did not involve any input from Stackpole, and is generally considered inferior due to OffModel art and rampant [[DecompressedComic decompression.]]

'''Isard's Revenge''' takes place directly after Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy and concerns the efforts of Rogue Squadron to bring justice to Stackpole's BigBad, who escaped -- twice -- despite her defeat in the Bacta War, and ties up a few loose ends left after the end of the comics.

'''Starfighters of Adumar''', though marketed as a Rogue Squadron novel, is really about Wedge himself; this is essentially his [[ADayInTheLimelight Day In The Limelight]], focusing on his life, career, friends and love life (or lack thereof) during a diplomatic mission in which he attempts to bring the planet Adumar into the New Republic by winning a flying-duel-based popularity contest.

While the Rogues and Wraiths also appeared in the ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' and ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce'', the latest true outing of the X-Wing series is another Wraith Squadron novel: '''Mercy Kill''', written by Allston, which was released in August 2012. It takes place primarily in the immediate aftermath of the ''Literature/FateOfTheJedi'' series, but fills in the time from the end of the Wraith Squadron books up to the "present."

Half mention also goes to '''[[Literature/JediAcademyTrilogy I, Jedi]]''', written by Stackpole and starring Corran Horn.

The '''X-Wing Series''' is a sizable part of the ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends''. This page covers the comic book series and the [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/X-Wing_%28novels%29 novel series,]] which were produced more or less in that order, although several of the books came out after the main comics series ended and the most recent comic book was in 2005. As the page image says, the character Wedge Antilles and the X-wing [[SpaceFighter starfighter]] are the absolute constants. For the video games, which are only vaguely connected, see ''VideoGame/XWing'' and ''VideoGame/RogueSquadron''.

* VerbalTicName: Kell calls his first astromech "Thirteen", because every time he would request a random number, the first response was always "13". The bug was patched after he first got the astromech, but it (at least temporarily) returned after an EMP/ion bomb disrupted the droid's electronics, which had the effect of resetting the droid to factory default settings.
