Why are interceptors called squints?

It was a nickname from the old west end games. It started with TIE fighters being called eyeballs, and squints being like eyeballs  squinting.

There's also Dupes (bombers), Brights (advanced and similar craft), and Trip (defender). Most of the nicknames come from the X-Wing book series.

Yep.  I believe Michael Stackpole was responsible for most of the dehumanizing nicknames.  He's an amazing writer - it's rare I like everything I've read by a writer, but he's that guy for me.
