A book review of star wars x wing rogue squadron by michael a stackpole

Shadowhawk is a regular contributor to TFF. With Wedge, it was really nice to start seeing some really deep understones and nuances to his character. I would have definitely preferred to see more unconventional characters who are stronger.

X-wing: Wedge’s Gamble by Michael Stackpole (Book Review)

The neutral world of Adumar has decided to pick a side in the war to control the galaxy. We care because of the characters. You could pick up almost any Star Wars book and be instantly transported to the place you well knew from the screen.

Plot[ edit ] As the novel begins, Wedge Antilles has gathered together a group of pilots to choose from to recreate the legendary Rogue Squadron, as a dual X-wing and commando squadron.

And that means first becoming pirates in space lanes teeming with Imperial Navy patrols. Enjoyable for fans, and I am one, but I might have liked this more when I was in HS and he could easily and graciously have chopped pages off to make this a tighter and better story.

It also helped that this totally random cinema course I was taking granted me access to the Cinema School library and I could watch all the Star Wars movies there! Erisi acts like the jealous, miffed lover wile Mirax is a little too hasty in her judgement at times. The dogfights look great, though.

Stackpole really has a good grasp of the mechanics and physics behind flying an X-Wing, maybe too much as sometimes the story bogs down in technical descriptions of what is happening. Its almost like a really smart commentary on a changing era.

Stackpole is something of a humanist, but we still get a lot of technical information about X —Wings and Y-wings and the science behind much of the Lucas magic.

Against all odds, the controversial Wraith Squadron has survived its first covert mission. Fortunately there are books like this one, where that original thrill can still be found.

He really comes in to his own in the novel as Michael starts to flesh out his back-story and gives us his ruminations on the deaths of his friends over the years. Because despite being rid of the Emperor and Darth Vader, the Empire is still alive and kicking. Therefore, most of the excitement of the reading experience itself and the novel is just lost on me.

They're all nearly killed, but find themselves rescued by Isard the original and asked to help with a top-secret mission to take down Krennel and Isard the clone. The connections, I assure you, are not frivolous. There are also too many callbacks to his ineptitude when he worked with the Corellian Security Forces for my liking.

The most obvious ones are Admiral Ackbar and Wedge Antilles.Nov 28,  · Star Wars: X-Wing: The Bacta War Audiobook by Michael A. Stackpole Rogue Squadron must oppose Isard's plans, defeat her Star Destroyer fleet, and.
