Well if ya noticed in the movies,Chewie(a wookie) was extremely good at repairing spaceships,not tree spaceships either. Wookies are very smart. How else could they repair spacecraft so well and be excellent co-pilots on ships? Their technology probably works by combining elements of the trees into metal ships. Like wooden chairs and doorways and maybe even outer hull surfaces for atmospheric craft.Maybe that helps. And yeah,wookies aren't retarded apes. They're more like dogs and bears.

hey BloOo,

wookies work their technology around trees on their homeworld, yes, but Lucasarts has taken SOME creative freedom when it comes to their Navy and air-units. Maybe some are mentioned in some kind of book (anyone know which ?), but other than that, what you're seeing is brand-new..

Wookies, though not appearing so, are VERY technologically adept. Hence why Chewbacca could repair the Falcon (Not an easy craft to keep space worthy! ;) ) It has been mentioned in the Role playing Game and several books, that wookies have great technical skills, and of course great strength :D . It also mentions that Wookies are found throughout the galaxy, implying that wookies have spaceflight capabilities. And in one book, our heroes travel to Kashyyyk (sp) (the wookie homeworld) were they do in fact live in trees, however they are at the same time very advanced cities in the trees. It is nothing like the ewok village in the trees! :rolleyes:

But as Leon mentioned, NOWHERE does any reference material (canon or not) does it mention or describe or picture any wookie spacecraft specifically, Lcasarts took creative license so all those vehicles you see for the wookie civ are Brand spankin' new (again as Leon said above)

So relax and enjoy pullin' arms outta sockets, because Wookies are tech heads too! :D
