Is there a way you can rescue a stranded pilot?

No you can't !

No need to worry about them, the Alliance will send a rescue shuttle ....eventually http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

As for the imperials, don't shoot them, it's against the Endor convention ! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif
You can always ram them and if asked just say that you were flying casually when this half-witted imp made a right turn with out any signal and crushed onto your ship! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/tongue.gif

you cannot pick them up because they move at about 5 MGLT. Also you can carry then (if you disable them) but have no way of bringing them in.. be kinda freaky to be outside a ship when it is in Hyperspace.

THo you do get points for shooting them... even tho it isn't very sporting

It's sporting if you give them a blaster, then use missiles http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Nah, it's funnier to put them in the way of a big capship... http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

"And it came to pass that the Wrath of Oingo Boingo fell upon the land. And Oingo Boingo cried out and said, "Behold, I have a wrath and I have fallen out upon your land." And the villagers of the land were frightened and proclaimed to Oingo Boing, "Behold, we are frightened, because you have a wrath and have fell upon our land." And Oingo Boingo answered to them, "Its because of you being frightened because of my wrath and falling out upon your land, that I shall destroy you." And Oingo Boingo did so. And it was NOT good, for all those who did see the great Oingo Boingo fell to his wrath."
-Tyais 3:16

Why is it that whenever someone says SOL I am always in trouble... whether it be Standards of Learning or (the other version). I'm always screwed.
