Because of Wedge's pilot ability, the longer the game goes on for, the more powerful it becomes. Whilst BB-8 provides an opportunity for him to barrel roll on the cheap whilst Predator can take the EPT slot.
At an initial 29 point investment he can get very expensive quickly, and whilst only having 5 hit points careful play will be rewarded.
Crack Shot provides a cheap alternative to Predator but even a combination of Stay On Target paired with a Targeting Astromech might provide some results. Finally Outmanoeuvre is capable to completely removing some ships green dice given the situation.
