Originally a part of the Rebel Alliance

, it went on to serve the Alliance of Free Planets, New Republic, Galactic Federation of Free Alliances, and Galactic Alliance Remnant. Its roster routinely included some of the galaxy's best pilots, and its successes in battle gave the squadron an almost mythical presence that reassured galactic citizens someone was in space protecting them. The Rogues were important symbols to the different governments they served and a key part of public morale. Led by a pilot with the callsign Rogue Leader, the squadron flew various types of fighter craft throughout their history, usually a version of an X-wing starfighter

As the group went on to serve the New Republic, it was disbanded for a year due to the amount of new recruits who were dying too soon after signing up. Rebuilt with a heavily-trained group of elite pilots in 6 ABY, Rogue Squadron played a key role in capturing the galactic capital world of Coruscant
