This article is about the first edition of the book. You may be looking for the second edition.

The first edition of Galaxy Guide 1: A New Hope is a supplement to Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game written by Michael Stern and Grant S. Boucher, and published by West End Games for first time in 1989, re-edited with major additions in 1995. The book is written in an in-universe perspective, as though it were the research project of a Rebel historian.

The guide features character profiles with RPG stats for main and some secondary characters from the film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. This book created for first time complete backgrounds for many characters appearing in the film.

The second edition was published in 1995. The main change of the new edition is to adapt the stats included to the Second Edition rules, but the articles were also extended to include vehicles, starships and equipment, not only characters like in the original guide.
