Trivia, facts, etc.

Star Wars: X-Wing is the first LucasArts DOS computer game set in the Star Wars universe, as well as the lead title in the X-Wing computer game series.

X-Wing features an original narrative that parallels the events of Episode IV. At crucial points in the storyline, hand-drawn cutscenes complement the narrative that is told mostly through the mission briefings and in-flight radio messages. The scenes were entirely original, though inspired by the movies.

The Collector's version of the game, which was labeled as "Limited Edition", offered a novella titled The Farlander Papers written by Rusel DeMaria. This was later expanded upon in the game's strategy guide which was sold separately and featured extensive mission tactics in the form of "after action reports" written by the game's chief mission designers, David Wessman and David Maxwell.
