This article is about the anti-Yuuzhan Vong resistance force. You may be looking for Star Wars Insider.
"I'm proposing that it's time for a new Rebel Alliance. Something that's unbounded by the traditions and the shortsighted thinking of the current government of the New Republic. Something different."
"A resistance force. But it would have to be a secret resistance. We can't just declare independence from the New Republic and march off to fight the Yuuzhan Vong. Secret units in hidden locations. Operations not discussed with the New Republic High Command.
Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles

The Insiders were a group against the Yuuzhan Vong, led by Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles, that decided to fight them using the tactics of the Rebel Alliance.



After the fall of Coruscant, Wedge with the remainder of his fleet along with many survivors retreated to Borleias to regroup. They originally planned to leave and look for Garm Bel Iblis and Traest Kre'fey when the sudden arrival of the Advisory Council prevented them.

After a harrowing negotiation, Wedge agreed to hold the planet against superior enemy numbers if Pwoe, who had declared himself Chief of State, would agree to his conditions. He then concluded that the Advisory Council had already given up on the New Republic when they consented to his demands.

Asking for advice on the matter, Luke Skywalker suggested that they revert to the old fighting style of the Rebel Alliance without bureaucratic interference and the trouble of politicians. Thus the Insiders was formed.

Subsequently, Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo, along with other members, set up resistance cells on a number of worlds.

The far majority of the Insiders later joined the Jedi Coalition during the Second Galactic Civil War.

Recruitment Policy

Their recruitment style was rather simple. As Wedge demonstrated by throwing a blaster in the table and offering it to everyone, anyone they believed they could trust their lives, or their childrens' lives with were eligible to join.
