A queen of Naboo deciding to personally jump in on the action and kick butt. As the late Yogi Berra (RIP) would say "it's deja vu all over again."

You say that now, but just wait until you break her heart.

Wow, no uniform or fighter updates in 35-40 some-odd years? Either they are incredibly isolationist/traditionalist (or they took nothing off nobody, especially the Empire, after their Senator's death) or they are broke as *shit*.

The Galaxy hasn't had real technological or societal changes for the last several millennia. Even modern hyperdrives are just slightly iterative improvements on the sleeper-ship versions from before the birth of the Sith cult.

The Galaxy lost much of its technological knowledge during the Republic's dark age and has spent the last thousand years getting it back.

Tech has improved in some areas. ISDs and Mon Cals are bigger than CW Venators- I'd say some of it was dusting the cobwebs off and learning what their tech applied to military usage can do.

Fighters have improved some, gotten a bit faster and heavier armed, but old ones remain viable.

For Naboo fighters, they were fancy and high-cost when they were new, and they're probably symbols of the defense force. In their role of light, maneuverable, but relatively well-protected fighter, it still holds it's own.

I doubt the Empire would allow upgrades to planets' own militia, just in case they tried to regain a militaty advantage.

The Empire shut down most planetary defence forces. The queen noted in an earlier page that one of her predecessors quite literally sealed the doors and claimed everything had been scrapped, just in case.

Yeah one of the most (only) fun parts of the prequel Triology was watching the ship designs evolve, like those clone ships that have elements of TIE fighters and X-wings and are a predecessor to both

Kind of bummed that the only spaceship designs we see in TFA trailers are all like 30 years old. Really hoping to see something unfamiliar and exciting

As noted by someone tumblr, note what Leia is wearing here, the flight suit is the same sort as her mother wore, the helmet and goggles are the same as the ones that her father wore (in "The Phantom Menace")

Here is a great post that points out how this scene makes some great visual references that connect Leia to her parents.

I must confess comrades, I've always had an admiration for the design of the Naboo fighter. The artwork seen in this issue is quite excellent! It certainly makes up for what was a very lackluster space battle we got in Episode One. I also dig how the angles aren't afraid to showcase it's shiny rounded belly. Anyone notice how the laser canons shoot red instead of green?

Also, I've played the Rogue Squadron games and this depiction of the Naboo Fighters is spot on. The laser canon placements were perfect in mowing down Tie-Fighters.

Even though it shouldn't -- it feels surreal to me to see OT characters interacting with Naboo. The world of the OT and PT still seem so separate to me.
