Actually, given the transit time from Delta Serpentis to Earth in 'Good Luck,' hyperspace is faster than subspace.
Which makes sense, since hypersonic is faster than subsonic. ;7

But doesn't Star Wars actually use hyperspeed?

Hyperspeed is the speed you go in Hyperspace :p

 
Re: Freespace vs. X crossover debate...sigh :D
Star wars ships go to lightspeed not hyperspeed ("make the jump to lightspeed"). But they jump to Hyperspace.
Star Wars ships are pretty much the fastest ships in any universe from what I've seen . . .

I don't get the FIAT reference, are you referring to the car make? I just can't place it. . . Sorry ;)

Luke we all know,
Soontir Fel is Wedge's brother in law and the empire's best pilot after Vader untill he joins the Chiss
Wedge, we all know as the guy that pulled out on the first DS run with luke, canonically he is the only person that can claim a full deathstar silhouette on his fighter as the only person in combat against both DS (you got a half silhouette just for flying combat against one), he is the only person to survive combat against both (his was the X-Wing that flew into the central core area of the second Deathstar) and all in all he is considered the best rebel/New Republic fighter pilot after luke

Soontir Fel is a no name that no one cares about. He's even got a dumb name to boot.
Luke sure, maybe he's equivalant to alpha 1 or Anakin but Wedge? No. Wedge is like Snipes and not any better.

Sorry, but if he's not in the movies, he's not important.
Actually pretty much everything outside of the original trilogy is not that important.

Maybe if the EU had a lick of creativity to it I might care a little more.

Re: Freespace vs. X crossover debate...sigh :D
Wedge is the biggest badass in Star Wars.

He takes on both Death Stars. He lives. He captures Coruscant, he lives. He takes down Isard. He tips the balance in the critical battle against Thrawn. He rams a mother****ing Super Star Destroyer into a mother****ing Vong worldship.

All with zero Force sensitivity!

The best Star Wars material is in the EU - Traitor, Shatterpoint, the Zahn books.

When Stackpole writes about a character he might as well be a super hero so if he's Jedi or not is irrelevant. It's no coincidence that his Battletech characters are often referred to as "Victor and the superfriends"

No the best star wars material is in the original movie trilogy. A lot of the other stuff I've heard of, seems like massive fan wank to me (especially anything regarding Boba Fett). Though the Zahn books are supposed to be pretty decent.

Corran Horn was Stackpole's superdude in that series. Wedge is no Victor. Wedge is just quietly competent. Not to mention he's been written about by non-Stackpole people more time than not.

The original trilogy is good if you're a kid, but Traitor and Shatterpoint were at once ****-yeah entertaining and genuinely interesting meditations on the nature of the Star Warsverse.
