battle-of-hoth

Hi! I have so far been very impressed by your posts, so now that I'm in a pickle, I thought I'd send up the distress beacon your way. I need the list of the pilots & their call signs who flew with Rogue Squadron during the evacuation of Hoth. I know that Luke Skywalker flew as Rogue Leader and that Zev Senesca flew as Rogue Two, and I know that Wedge, Wes, Hobbie, and co were there but not their call signs nor the names of the other 7 pilots. My usual sources are unreachable. Help??

As you may know, Rogue Squadron wasn’t actually Rogue Squadron by the time of the Battle of Hoth. Prior to it, it was called Rogue Flight and was part of Red Squadron, and during the battle it was formed into a makeshift force called Rogue Group, which included pilots from several different squadrons (Red, Green, and Rogue Flight). The pilots and gunners together during the battle numbered 23, and each pilot-gunner pair flew one snowspeeder and shared a call sign. So, we have:

Rogue Leader: Luke Skywalker and Dak Ralter

Rogue Two: Zev Senesca and Kit Valent

Rogue Three: Wedge Antilles and Wes Janson

Rogue Four: Derek “Hobbie” Klivian and Kesin Ommis

Rogue Five: Tycho Celchu and Tarn Mison

Rogue Six: Samoc Farr and Vigrat Pomoner

Rogue Seven: Nala Hetsime and Cinda Tarheel

Rogue Eight: Vekozev Kabir and Stax Mullawny

Rogue Nine: Stevan Makintay and Barlon Hightower

Rogue Ten: Tarrin Datch and Hosh Hune

Rogue Eleven: Tenk Lenso and Jek Pugilio

Rogue Twelve: Dash Rendar (flying solo)

The first two are organized pilot first and then gunner, but for the others I can’t be sure who took which position. If you need to know that, feel free to ask and I’ll search around some more.

I hope that helps!
