The X-Wing series was envisioned as "Star Wars meets Top Gun".[1] The first four books by Michael Stackpole are collectively known informally as the Rogue Squadron series, as together they form a self-contained plot involving the members of Rogue Squadron. They relate the events of the New Republic strike to retake the Imperial capital of Coruscant, and the machinations of Ysanne Isard to bring about the New Republic's defeat.

The following three books by Aaron Allston are known informally as the Wraith Squadron series due to their focus on that squadron, and relate the New Republic's campaign against the Imperial warlord Zsinj. The events of this trilogy lead directly into The Courtship of Princess Leia.

The next three books all serve as standalones. Isard's Revenge overlaps with the end of The Last Command and recounts the conflict between the New Republic and Ciutric Hegemony. Unlike the previous books in the series, it has many connections with the Star Wars: X-Wing Rogue Squadron comic series, and serves as an informal epilogue to some of the plotlines from that series.

Starfighters of Adumar is a standalone as well. Unlike the other books, it has very little connection to other canon, and has an entirely self-contained plot. It tells of a New Republic mission to the neutral world of Adumar to negotiate its entry into the New Republic.

Mercy Kill is set over 30 years after the previous books, and features both new and returning characters. It is a return to Wraith Squadron and the team investigates a corrupt general.
