Star Wars: X-wing Alliance: Prima's Official Strategy Guide was a strategy guide published by Prima Games for Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance. It was written by John Drake and Doug Barnett and was published by Prima Games on May 3, 1999. Included free with the guide was a CD providing an upgrade to the game proper, including additional skirmish templates, a camera feature present in the other games of the series and films of every mission in the game.

It is primarily told from two perspectives: a real world perspective providing readers with information on the basic controls of the game, tips to help succeed, and general strategies on how to progress through the game's storyline, and an in-universe perspective of the game's storyline, as related to the reader by the Azzameen family droid Emkay.
