Those characters belong on a Star Destroyer, not some made up POS. If you're going to invent a new ship because nothing else is adequate for the game, invent new characters to crew it too.

I feel obligated to point out that Star Destroyers are also made up.

Well, if we can't have an actual Star Destroyer for X-Wing, then this is the next best thing. I'd rather see these characters here than not at all. I like to think that the Raider is the sportscar of Star Destroyers, and these guys are out for a Sunday drive
I'm looking forward to this, so colour me blue and call me a Twi'lek.

It was endorsed by LucasFilms so it is official canon now. Unlike the rest of EU. So its got that going for it.

Shoe horning characters in is recipe for disaster. Ackbar as a Bwing pilot or Wicket piloting a TIE Bomber just to get them in the game, that would be sweet.

Though I suppose there was that fake ewok X-wing pilot in the Wraiths.

Ackhbar was a B-wing pilot in the EU. He helped design them and flew a two-seater.
My question is will we see the Carrion Spike, which is official canon and appropriately sized based on Tarkin(novel).

Did noone else notice this?

Canonically you can't put Tarkin on a Raider

I live in the city of Gulf, on the shores of Lake Water. This fun fact has nothing to do with this badge you're pointing at.

:D


Says who? The Raider card doesn't say the Raider wasn't developed until after the destruction of the Death Star - it just says that there was renewed interest. The Raider could have existed before that.

I thought I had read somewhere that the Raider was around just after the Clone Wars ended. Maybe I'm making that up though...

6BBY. Tarkin died in 0BBY.

I think someone said they saw what looked like the Raider in the preview for Season 2 of the Star Wars: Rebels tv show. I don't recall and didn't look that closely.
