Which squadron is better? The Wraiths or Rogues?
I like the Wraiths because they're funnier
02-19-2003, 01:10 PM
Oh gawd... just wait till Wraithy gets in here...
I went for Rogue Squadron... i've said it before and i'll say it again
"We Rogues have gotta stick together dammit!!"
02-19-2003, 02:07 PM
Wraith Squadron psuedo-motto:
Pretty - what do we blow up first.
Think that says it all.
02-19-2003, 03:35 PM
ya, Its Wraiths all the way. The Rogues are good too, but they lack the humor. In fact here's my most "favoritest" part in all of the Wraith books:
Face took the datapad from him. "What's this?"
"It's called a da-ta-pad. New Republic and Imperial children learn about them from the time they're very young."
It's just sad that Phanan had to die....... he was the funniest of them all.....
and here's a lil sumthin for the ppl at aReSeN:
Wedge shook his head sorrowfully. "Sometimes I miss my sanity."

Rogue is the far superior fighter squadron. In terms of cooks, though, they each have their strengths.
02-20-2003, 02:23 PM
i like both. they each have something that makes 'em likable

I really can't decide... the Wraiths are really funny, and good pilots too, but the Rogues are far more skilled pilots and have been involved in some really great battles. And, of course, the Rogues have Corran. And he's just cool. :D

Why thank you... :D We aim to please :D
02-22-2003, 02:36 AM
Crazy people with multiple names.....
02-22-2003, 02:55 AM
ehehehe that was my original name, the name I first signed up with at RogueSquadron.Net :D
02-23-2003, 04:30 AM
I think that Rogues are the best. They were sent out to do the real hard missions for a good reason you know. They are widely known and are the best of the best in my opinion. Wraith's are good too but Rogues just win it.
02-24-2003, 02:01 PM
ALL THE WAY!
I mean come on... They arent Rogue Squadron... but damn they are funny man. Garik Loran and Ton Phanan RULE THE GALAXY on humor :D
02-24-2003, 03:49 PM
awesome pic. that's Face and the Glass Prowler right?
I think the Wraiths need a comic book series. The Rogues have one
My vote goes to the Rogue squadron. :)
02-24-2003, 09:08 PM
My vote is Rogue Squadron. Just because I liked Rogue Squadron for N64 though. :)
I don't really even know anything about Wraith Squadron.:(
02-24-2003, 11:30 PM
man whats wrong with you people, Wraith squadron is much better than Rogues. In fact, I think they need a "Wraith Squadron" video game. Insreal of Rogue squadron 3.....

you not only have to fly X-wings.. but do ground commando missions aswell :p
how about making an X-wing book TV show... devide all books into like 6 parts... and make a TV show :p
02-25-2003, 12:04 PM
I would never stop laughing if it was a TV show......
02-25-2003, 07:31 PM
yeah same here....
02-26-2003, 02:54 AM
I like the wraiths for their humour... but when it came to kickin some ass, Rogues all the way :D
02-26-2003, 07:50 AM
hmm... i dunno......... depends on what kind of scenario.....
03-11-2003, 12:15 AM
Whats the wraith squardron? is it a galactic empire tie squardron or somthin
03-11-2003, 07:51 AM
*gasp* Wraith Squadron is only the best X-Wing unit/Commando Team in the NEw Republic! Founded by none other than Wedge Antilles(sp)
03-11-2003, 08:20 AM
yeah founded by Wedge... the leader of Rogue Squadron
03-11-2003, 11:59 AM
Really? RogueSquadron? i thought it was Dinner Squadron!

i vote for the Rogues based on their skill.
03-12-2003, 05:15 PM
How can Wedge be leader of both Squadrons?
03-13-2003, 01:40 AM
He left Tycho incharge of the Rogues for a little while... or was it Wes... (haven't read it in AGES) well he left someone in charge while he led the Wraiths...
03-13-2003, 02:36 AM
No no. Wes Janson came along with Wedge when he formed the Wraiths while Tycho was left in charge of the Rogues with Hobbie.
I prefer Rogue Squadron to the Wraiths simply because they epitomize the Rebellion and the New Republic. They're fast, surgical and efficient. But nothing can beat Elassar Targon, Master of the Universe. :p
03-13-2003, 07:46 AM
nono, Face and Ton were the best. Kell was funny too:
Wes: "Oh great, he wants to kill me AND he can make bombs."
well, it's not the exact wording but close.

and RS is beating Ws 11-3 in the poll, proving, i guess, who is the better squadron.:D
03-23-2003, 06:34 PM
bah! The poll was rigged! :p

04-09-2003, 02:45 AM
i think the wraiths are more able because of their differing skills... they're more able in penetration an infiltration
04-23-2003, 12:16 PM
but when the real tough mission come along who ya gonna call? (no not ghostbusters u losers...) Rogue Squadron!
04-23-2003, 12:59 PM
a lot of people here seem to think that the wraiths are funnier than the rogues...which is true, if u base your judgement on the novels alone. however, let's not forget the x-wing rogue squadron comic series....saturated with humour. by far, the characters in the xwrs comic series (like plourr, wes, hobbie, nrin, xarcce) are far more likeable than people like the rogues in the novels. while it was marginally less funny than allston's trademark humour, the comics were enough to make u grow attached to the squad...if u take both humour & pilot skill into account, rogue squad comes out tops.
also, let's not forget that a certain portion of the wraith jokes (not the majority, but still a significant enough quantity) originated from the republic's resident jester, wes janson...who was, first & foremost, a rogue. furthermore, starfighters of adumar-which is, IMO, the single most laugh-inducing book in the star wars universe- was centered around the 4 chief rogues.\
so here's to the rogues! the best fighter squad in the galaxy!
04-23-2003, 01:05 PM
right on! Rogues all the way!! :p
04-24-2003, 02:31 PM
"thats just because the wraiths never had a game of their own .. they would ROCK!"
you're effectively saying that the wraiths don't rock....
but seriously, the rogue squad game didnt do justice to rogue squadron. their flying was horrible and the dialogue worse. even without the game, rogue squad would still be at the top of the list of most people....thanx to the comics (esp) & the novels.http://www.btinternet.com/~orangeandpurple/logo.gif
rock on, rogues !..!
04-24-2003, 04:41 PM
i guess you read that wrong... i said if they would get they're own game... the game would rock... :D
04-25-2003, 05:54 AM
since when was the word "they" used to refer to a singular object? okok....i get whatcha mean...lets jus drop it...
....and the rogue squad logo looks much cooler than the dumbass gray thing them wraiths have going.... ;)
04-25-2003, 08:14 AM
ahahah I don't think he cares you're a supermod cutie pie... eh neither do I but I'm gonna say this more politely
The Rogues insignia has a lot more meaning than the Wraiths...
