“All remaining systems will bow to the First Order and remember this as the last day of the Republic!”
–General Hux, Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Rising from the ashes of the Galactic Empire, the First Order stands poised to usher in a new era of galactic dominance. Soon, its starfighters will enter the intense space battles of the Star Wars galaxy.
For too long, the First Order has been relegated to the far corners of the galaxy. But, with these expansion packs, you can join their fight and destroy those who embrace disorder. Following in the footsteps of the Empire, the First Order spreads terror in the form of mass-produced starfighters designed to overwhelm their opponents with sheer numbers.
In X-Wing Second Edition, the First Order is being introduced as its own unique faction separate from the Galactic Empire. Veteran X-Wing players will be able to use the cards, tokens, and maneuver dials found in the First Order Conversion Kit to bring their existing TIE/fo fighters, TIE/sf fighters, TIE/vn silencers, and Upsilon-class shuttles into X-Wing Second Edition. Meanwhile, veteran players looking to further expand their squadrons or new players prepared to start their own fleet can sow the seeds of terror by adding more of the First Order’s take on the infamous TIE fighter.
Read on for more information about each of these expansions and what they bring to your games of X-Wing Second Edition! For more information about the Resistance or Scum and Villainy ships in Wave II, follow those links.
Crush the Resistance
As you might expect from the successor to the Galactic Empire, the First Order fields a variety of starfighters based on classic Imperial designs. Far from simply rehashing these older ships, though, First Order fighters feature a number of refinements that give them the edge in their fight against the loathsome Resistance. The First Order Conversion Kit makes your first edition versions of these ships immediately available for use in your X-Wing Second Edition squadrons.
Within the First Order Conversion Kit, you’ll find everything you need to strike fear into the heart of the Resistance and take your squad into the future of X-Wing, including a wide variety of new ship cards and tokens, more than one-hundred upgrade cards, and new maneuver dials for all of your First Order ships. The ship cards contained in this kit include some of the most celebrated pilots in the First Order, such as Major Stridan, “Backdraft,” and Kylo Ren himself.
Skilled as they may be, these vaunted pilots and their ships can always benefit from upgrades. Alongside the other upgrades included in the First Order Conversion Kit, you’ll also find ten Tech upgrade cards that can only be used on starfighters from this era. Finally, the conversion kit provides plenty of options for completing your squadrons, containing enough maneuver dials to convert seven TIE/fo fighters, five TIE/so fighters, three TIE/vn silencers, and three Upsilon-class shuttles to X-Wing Second Edition.
In addition to the being present in the First Order Conversion Kit, all of the First Order pilots, ships, and upgrades will be fully implemented in the X-Wing Second Edition squad-builder app when they are released. A pdf with the point values of all First Order pilots and upgrades will also be available for reference on our website. New players can also use the conversion kit and first edition versions of First Order ships for even more options when building their squads!

Once banished to the unknown regions of the galaxy, the First Order is now poised to sweep across the galaxy and build an empire of its own. Join their campaign with these new expansions for X-Wing Second Edition!
