"What the Sithspawn are those?"
"Twin Suns One, you have the Taanab Yellow Aces, Aces-One speaking. We're here to show the defenders of Borleias what flying is all about."
Jaina Solo and Wes Janson

The Taanab Yellow Aces was a volunteer starfighter squadron. Formed and commanded by Wes Janson of Rogue Squadron fame during the Yuuzhan Vong War, the unit's name was a tribute to the Yellow Aces Squadron of Tierfon and Janson's homeworld of Taanab. Janson had served in Tierfon Yellow Aces with Jek Tono Porkins during the early years of the Rebel Alliance. The squadron flew a mix of yellow RZ-1 A-wing interceptors and E-wing escort starfighters that featured distinct angular black striping. During the Liberation of Coruscant, the squadron also included X-wing fighters.

Following the Fall of Coruscant, the Yellow Aces joined with the New Republic's massed forces at Borleias. After serving as escorts during the crucial resupply of Borleias, the Yellow Aces worked within the new Galactic Alliance to liberate Yuuzhan Vong prisoners held at Selvaris.
