Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Legacy Era Campaign Guide
The pilots of Skull Squadron are among the most dedicated pilots in the galaxy. Skull Squadron's mission- the defense of Coruscant and all of its Imperial assets- keeps their skills honed, as they must maintain the security of one of the most heavily populated worlds in the galaxy. The pilots of Skull Squadron are handpicked for service by the squadron's commander and serve for as long as they are able to demonstrate their superior piloting skills. Though slip-ups usually result in pilot deaths, a few pilots have lived long enough to retire from Skull Squadron and go on to greater things, including Moff Rulf Yage.
Though primarily a planetary defense force, the pilots of Skull Squadron are no strangers to engagements above other worlds and in the depths of space. However, Skull Squadron pilots spend countless hours performing maneuvers and training above Coruscant, learning to fly and fight between the towering skyscrapers found across the planet. A pilot in Skull Squadron must learn to maneuver between artificial structures, dodge Airspeeders and incoming space traffic, and still pinpoint and destroy their prey. Flying in an urban environment can be extremely challenging, and that is why the members of Skull Squadron must have the quickest reflexes and the sharpest instincts.
