X-Wing: Rogue Leader is a three-part comic book series set in the Star Wars galaxy approximately one week after the Battle of Endor in Return of the Jedi, and 4 years after the Battle of Yavin in Episode IV: A New Hope.

Synopsis[edit]

Several participants in the destruction of the second Death Star are sent, a little while after the events of Bakura, to scout out Imperial activity in Corellian space. It quickly turns dangerous as Ten Numb is captured by rampaging Imperial Forces. The Rogue's attempt to rescue him comes too late as he does not survive the torture.

Rogue Squadron becomes more official as many more officers volunteer in the wake of the rescue attempt. The first assigned mission; to escort a Rebel convoy, and it then turns mysterious when Imperial fighters show up instead. The Rogue squadron pilots must depend on the aid of insurgents who hate them in order to survive.
