X-Wing includes everything you need to begin your battles, such as thirteen Ship cards (featuring nine Imperial and four Rebel pilots), five Upgrade cards, and three fully assembled and painted ships.

A few options are now available so instead of using a black space mat for gaming on, you can game on a certain very large space station (not a moon).

SkeletonKey Games released Warscapes: Star Base Trench-Run - A pdf download from RPGNow of fifteen 8 inch by 10 inch terrain tiles recreating the surface of a massive space station.

Fat Dragon Games released E-Z Battlefields: Starship Attack - A pdf download from RPGNow of nine 8"x10" tiles that have layered graphic options which allow you to customize each tile before printing.

Also included are 3D gun turrets and asteroids, both featuring layered graphic options as well.
