Renegade Flight was a Rebel Alliance X-wing starfighter unit under the leadership of Commander Arhul Narra. It was assigned to the Alliance High Command Headquarters before its destruction in 3 ABY at the Battle of Derra IV.
Renegade Flight was one of the oldest fighter groups in the Alliance, with a service history dating back before the Battle of Yavin. It was named for the Incom Corporation design team that defected to the Alliance early in the Galactic Civil War. Military lore had it that one of Renegade Flight's fighters dated back to the original X-wing prototypes.
Days before the Battle of Hoth, Renegade Flight was escorting a supply convoy to Echo Base when the convoy was ambushed in orbit over Derra IV by an Imperial force led by the 181st Imperial Fighter Wing attached to an Ton-Falk-class escort carrier. All the Rebel transports were destroyed and every member of Renegade Flight was killed. Ironically, the capital ship design that launched the fighters that destroyed Renegade Flight was developed as a result of the Renegades' victory at Ton-Falk. A plaque commemorating the lost pilots hung on the command deck of the Rebel frigate, Chancellor.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Star Wars Encyclopedia and Who's Who in Rogue Squadron place Commander Narra and Renegade Flight at the Battle of Yavin. Lucasfilm's Leland Chee has since confirmed this as an error on the StarWars.com forums.
Galaxy Guide 3: The Empire Strikes Back, Second Edition refers to Renegade Flight as "Renegade Squadron". This is not to be confused with the Renegade Squadron assembled by Han Solo.
