The 10 Best Starships Of The Star Wars Prequels
Whenever anyone talks about the best ships of Star Wars the answer is immediately the Incom T-65XJ X-Wing or the old reliable YT-1300 transport that is the Millenium Falcon. You might even make a strong case for one of those awesome Mon Calamari Cruisers, or Darth Vader’s ridiculously massive super Star Destroyer. But you probably won’t list any of the ships from the prequels among your favorites because, well let’s face it, everything about the original Star Wars movies, right down to the ship designs, is better.
But that doesn’t mean the Star Wars prequels don’t have a few pretty cool ships of their own. So rather than arguing yet again over whether or not the Corellian Corvette or the Tie-Advanced is a cooler ride, here’s a look at the ten most awesome ships from The Phantom Menace (back in theaters this weekend), Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith.
Eta-2 Actis Class Light Interceptor
The ship with the most ridiculous name may also be the best fighter in the prequel universe. The Eta-2 is also known as the Jedi Interceptor, and it’s the ship Jedi flew into battle late in the Clone Wars. You see a lot of them in Revenge of the Sith. It’s probably not an accident that this 5.47 meters long ship looks like a hybrid between a TIE-Fighter and a more traditional fighter. Obviously this design will eventually morph into the Empire’s hordes of deadly little TIEs.
