X-Wing Rogue Squadron #17
Requiem for a Rogue (Part 1 of 4)

Place in timeline - 4+ years after A New Hope

Published: April 1997
Story: Michael A. Stackpole & Jan Strnad
Illustrator: Gary Erskine


Malrev 4 is an uncivilized planet in a pretty, but otherwise useless, corner of the galaxy. Inhabited by vicious, unthinking brutes, it's like a living museum of pre-evolution. You wouldn't bother going there unless you had a death wish . . . or you were a member of Rogue Squadron and you were trying to rescue a downed cruise liner.

Requiem for a Rogue (Part 2 of 4)

Published: May 1997
Story: Michael A. Stackpole
Script: Jan Strnad
Art: Gary Erskine
Colorist: Dave Nestelle
Letterer: Annie Parkhouse
Cover Artist: Kevin Ryan


It should have been a simple mission for the men and women of Rogue Squadron -- an easy search-and-rescue for a group of Bothan castaways forced down on Malrev 4. But when they got to the backwater planet, the Rogues found themselves first attacked by the Irrukiine, a doglike aboriginal race, and then by the Bothans themselves. There's some strange kind of hoodoo going down on Malrev 4 -- this planet promotes madness and deceit, and not even the Rogues are immune!

The Bothan tourists that Wedge and crew have come to save are neither Bothans nor tourists -- they're a consortium of spies assigned to follow the Emperor. Wedge is glad to know this now, but he'd have been happier to have discovered this fact before his crew were trapped on this back-water planet called Malrev 4. Now Rogue Squadron is in the middle of a firing ground, between a twisted, self-styled "Lord of the Sith" who calls Malrev 4 his home and the leader of the spies, Girov, who desires the planet, its great temple, and all its power for his own!

It should be an easy mission for Rogue Squadron -- a simple search-and-rescue of a group of castaways forced down to Malrev 4. But when they reach the backwater planet, the Rogues find themselves attacked by the bestial Irrukiine and then by the Bothans themselves. There's something strange going down on Malrev 4.
