Wookiee Hut Cuisine presents:
Molé Poblano
by SuSu, Wraith6, SaSung

The Wraiths became an Intelligence unit at the end of "Solo Command," because their unique collection of skillsets meant they could be inserted into nearly any situation. It also meant they could survive and get out, more or less intact. In other words, they are the ideal moles.

The unit was born as a starfighter squadron under the command of Wedge Antilles and Wes Janson. When they were transferred to Intelligence, there was disappointment among the members. To let the men and women of the former Wraith Squadron know that they would forever be in their former leaders' hearts, Wedge ordered Wes to concoct a special dinner for them using a secret sauce formulation.

"But ... but ... that's OUR secret sauce," whined Wes. "We got it from those desert people from Ansion, and we swore —"

"... that we'd only share it with heroes and those worthy, I know!" Wedge finished the sentence. "The Wraiths are worthy, no? And besides, the sauce is called —"

"... Molé Poblano," finished Wes. "So what?"

"We can call it 'problem moles' for them, right?" Wedge winked.

Wes sulked. "No, we can't." But he did it anyway because it was an excellent and mysterious sauce, and talking about it had made them both hungry for it!
