Luke would've been my choice if he would have stayed in the squadron however.
there's not a snowball's chance in hell that that whiny prik would've surpassed wedge in my book....
wedge's such a cool character....wedge had a great sense of humour which was not made so apparent when put up against the squadron comedian wes janson...eg. cracken mentions a mapping expedition in the unknown regions, wedge responds: "if u're gonna continue to map the unknown regions, u're gonna have to call it something else". his wit & humour manifests itself manifold ways in both the comics & the books...especially allston's ones.
and i think i've harped enough on wedge's piloting skillz....
