I just wrote a Rebellion hints/guide essay (for lack of a better term). It's currently a word document. If there is anyone out there who would like to read it over and send me back comments or just would like it, please email me at email@example.com (not the email below).
i don't think there is anything new or ground breaking in it. I just cover things like fleet managment, defensive arrangements, general observations, some guidelines basic to most strat games that some star wars only gamers may or may not know (since the manual was rather vague).
