not quite. His brother-in-law has got him beat.

do you consider him beat because "an x-wing is better than an TIE INT"?

no


regardless, the interceptor was designed to take down the x-wing

but many consider the x-wing a better ship.

"Crutch" -

A device used for assistance or support; a prop: a mnemonic crutch.

Still not sure what you mean.

As for non-Force users, probably Antilles.

how about Lando and that alien guy with multiple cheeks piloting the Millenium Falcon, during the assult on the Death Star?

Nien Numb is a Sullustan piercy :)
and im doubting between antilles and Fell.

i mean how many times have we read that antilles takes a graze on his shields.... and fell doesnt have shields and survives aswell.... i think fell.... i mean he just has NOTHING to defend him from a shot and he survives everytime :)

oh and uhmmm none of the wraith squadron pilots are as good a pilots as Rogues.... im proud of the Wraiths and all.. but piloting wasnt their main thing :p

It's spelled Fel. You're forgetting to take into account that an Interceptor is harder to hit then an X-Wing. Nonetheless, I think Wedge and Soontir are very close in talent, but I'm still gonna go with Wedge.

Fel or Fell...... you understood what i meant right?

Agreed! Wedge survived 2 Death Star assault missions, that has to count for something. :D

But Fel survived being an Interceptor pilot, that has to count for something. And he survived being an Interceptor pilot going against Rogue Squadron! Still, I have to agree that Wedge is the best.

Maybe Jango deserves some credit for navigating that asteroid field in AotC.:fett:

Still not sure what you mean.

He is most likely referring to Luke Skywalker, and how he has the Force to help him pilot...

I'd say Wedge and Fel are equal, and it's ok, cuz they're related so I have no problems considering them equal.

Fel was the Empire's best. Wedge was the Alliance's best.

in x-wing book 5 i think it was Phanan who asked wedge and janson who they thought was the best starfighter in the galaxy.

according to janson:
well Luke Skywalker is one of the best in the galaxy. but he hasnt been flying frequently and his kills arent up there with the rest of the pilots.... if your looking for a pilot with the most kills and survival its wedge antilles.

or something like that (no direct quote)

but i still think its a tie between fel and antilles

Han.

He's got the skills to be one of the best, and is also one lucky bastard.

TheOutrider

Dang accidentally click Han oh well.

Wedge is da best in the series of Star Wars IMO.

I voted for...of coarse...Wedge. I mean, this is a no brainer

Ya forgot Lando ..... You racist add Lando, anyway I vote for Lando. Lol j/k about the racist crack

Well, if there's one good thing that came out of the NJO, it's gotta be Jaina Solo. So she should be in the discussion too.

swphreak
11-16-2004, 01:19 PM
well, Jaina is awesome, but I think Wedge or Fel could outfly her easily.

Rogue Nine
11-16-2004, 01:27 PM
Well of course, since they're probably the two best fighter pilots in the galaxy.

Lando Took out tha second death star, and he flew that big ass Falcon through the deathstar. Thats gotta count for a lot.

Lord_Prowler
12-08-2004, 11:39 AM
Lando also ripped the dish from the top of the Falcon. I went with Han. Nobody else that I know of has had the honor of knocking Vader out of a battle. Plus he's the original Asteroid Field Man.

Shok_Tinoktin

To be fair, it was technically Vader's wingman who knocked Vader out of battle. :p

Not just experience, a lot of natural talent.

I voted Han since he's half a tie better then wedge.
He's pretty darn lucky to.

oh cool, a(nother) best pilot thread.



well, Jaina is awesome, but I think Wedge or Fel could outfly her easily.
yeah, definitely. Jaina admitted so herself in the NJO series. hell, even Jagged Fel could apparently outfly her easily. i'd shudder to think at what wedge & fel sr. might do to her in combat.



Nonetheless, I think Wedge and Soontir are very close in talent, but I'm still gonna go with Wedge.
mmhmm. good point. hard to compare their talent levels... but i think wedge has gotten soontir beat when it comes to strategic & tactical ability. i mean, seriously, have you SEEN the sort of stuff wedge's done? the guy was the mastermind behind the ground operation which took over Coruscant, not to mention the Yuuzhan Vong's greatest defeat after the fall of Coruscant. It this is not just when he's behind the stick of a snubfighter, either... he's pretty lethal when on a capital ship bridge, too. i don't think baron fel can compare in this regard.

Revan Solo

Who can you compare pilot's talents? I have never been reading that a pilot is better than a special another one.
