    So is the T-85 going to come out at 55 points for the PS1 generic with a dial on par with a Y-Wing?  You know, to stick with the analogy.

    The T-70 is probably out of front line duty, however.

    But there's a whole fleet of them mothballed.
     
     
    Different cells.

    Like, of Rebels. If this is the only cell so far, then X-Wings and Y-Wings aren't in the fold yet. When they are, they most likely won't be fresh. Not the Y-Wings anyway.

    I'd love to see a series of episodes regarding their capture at Fresia. It'd be TOTALLY cool.

    So looking at the Mask of the Pirate Queen FFG RPG Adventure there's this ship: the StarViper-M2. 
     
    While the name appears for the first time in this book, the concept isn't new - After MandalMotors got back production rights for the StarViper, they made started producing a more mass manufacture friendly version of the StarViper.
     
    Differences:
    Replaces the twin-heavy cannons on the SV for quad-light laser cannons (in RPG terms this swaps armor penetration for rate of fire & accuracy - don't see it chaning PW value)
    Increase shields 
    Replaces Torpedo launcher for Ion Cannon
     
    Supposed to be popular with Zann Consortium and other pirates. Could this become a fix for the StarVipers that are not Guri and Xizor?

    As we don't know how big exactly the New Republic is, we don't really know how big their fleet is. While a significant fleet presence will be at the capital, it will unlikely to be the major portion of the fleet.
     
    What cripples the New Republic will be the sudden loss of leadership, similar to the void after the death of the Emperor. It is not how many generals and admirals go warlord, but rether how many that is the question. 
     
    As far as I understand, the Resistance is funded by Leia personally - her squadrons of T-70s are not top of starfighters; the Republic have better and have decomm-ed the T-70s.

    The amount of TIE models is practically infinite but 3 x-wing models is too much?

    I suppose the next 2 books in the Aftermath Trilogy will try to deal with that. Life Debt is out in July next year, with Empire's End in summer 2017 (which would be just after episode 8's release). There will be more novels, comics and short stories I suppose in between.

    Actually the T-70 is probably a decomissioned model - the T-85 is the standard ship in rep navy - a newer prototype is not out of the question. Just out of the question for the Resistance to get their hands on. Remember the Resistance is sorta like the Flying Tigers or Yankee Squadron.

    The major problem with prequel ships is faction - Republic became the Empire while the CIS is no analogue to Rebels (unlike FO and Resistance being parallells of the Empire and Rebel Alliance respectively. Intro-ing 2 new factions to the game is going to be a BIG problem.
     
    I don't have a problem with the ships themselves being made if some sort of lore (Canon or Legends) puts them in one of the 3 current factions. So far only the N1, J-type and Star Courier have reappeared in the lore. None of the AotC or RotS ships have done so despite being more recent ships.

    Poe Dameron flies Black One (Black Leader) - he's the overall Wing Commander of the Resistance Squadrons.
     
    Ello Asty, Jessika Pava (Blue 3) and Temmin Wrexley are Blue Squadron Pilots.
     
    Nien Numb's squadron and call sign isn't known.
     
    If the attack wing comprised of Poe with Red and Blue Squadrons at full strength, there would have been 25 T-70 X-Wings vs a Starkiller base's full complement of TIE/fos and TIE/sfs.
     
    Ello Asty is the only new named pilot unveiled in the movie. Poe Dameron was announced as the one of the new characters in pre-promotional material and his parents have had some stories in the Marvel comics. Jessika Pava and Temmin Wrexley are both first featured in novels (which appeared around the time the TFA core set was released). Nien Numb appeared in RotJ and is a major supporting character in the Marvel Comics.

    I do find Han's and Leia's story extremely believable - much more than the fairy tale in the EU. Carrie Fisher was kinda wooden in her role however, bit I'm glad to have them back. Having the OT characters all old and tired (except C-3PO and Chewbacca) made it much more interesting and real for me. 
     
    Chewbacca blasting the snot nosed punk reminds me why he is always my favourite character in Star Wars.
