    Have you seen Obi-Wan's new Ep II ship?

    **********episode II spoiler warning***********

    eh up

    You've probably already seen this before, but have a look at the pic with Obi Wan next to an A-wing style ship - pretty cool, can't wait for the MM.

    i had seen this ship before......

    but not from this angle.

    way cool! the ship reminds me somewhat of the alpha naboo fighter, particularly with the rounded cockpit canopy, and the wide plane of the fusilage.

    oh man! this beauty is screamin' action fleet all over!

    Yeah, and in the last insider you can see what the top of it looks like. Pretty cool... 'cept for one insignia. heh...


    *SPOILERS* Highlight to read, if it works.
    Btw, in the new insider it also show's a ship I guess is Anakin's and it looks alot like the Expanded Universe Cloud Car with the arrowhead hull. Not bad, I can scan a pic for anyone if they want.

    Yeah it looks like an elongated A-Wing.

    More futuristic looking than the X-Wing. But the A-Wing was supposed to come some 20 years after episode 2. Aren't X and Y-Wings supposed to be 'old' ships at the time of 'A New Hope', so shouldn't the Republic be using ships similar to early X and Y designs at the time of ep 2 and 3?

    They could be Nubian personal craft given to Obi-Wan and Anakin as presents of courtesy from Amidala for helping Naboo. Just a thought, I dunno, but since the Queen's E1 Starship has the pointed nose design on it...

    It's a precursor design to the Imperial Star Destroyer, and it's wearing a Republic insignia which is similar to the Imperial one. My guess is that it's just the shape of Coruscant starfighter design at the time.

    Ah.. but the Jedi do not fight like that, they protect, they would have no need for a starfighter so why would the ships if they are "personal" ships be starfighters? Of course they could be to try to protect against the enemy and such in some scenes so they could've done that but it's not like they're mini-anakin or Luke. Hmm, if the Star Destroyers had adapted their design wouldn't the TIE Fighters also have? I could be wrong. (JT, if you're gonna prove me wrong again please make it more...err, pleasant. )

    BASKER, YOU'RE WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG! Actually, I don't know for sure, I'm just going on rumors and what LFL has said. However, it may be possible that the Jedi are required to "protect" over the skies of a planet, and thus would need ships.

    As for the adaptation issue, Lucas seemed to be thinking about TIE Fighters in Ep 1 with the Droid Starfighters. Remember that the Empire employs different ship builders for different vehicles, so they're not all gonna be the same.
