If I recall correctly, technology doesn't change much at all between KOTOR and Bane's era, according to the most recent books (for example, they're still using Hammerheads). 3,500 BBY is smack dab in the middle of the two.
With Star Wars tech you kind of have to just throw logic, reason, and any scientific knowledge right out the window. Go ahead, defenestrate it.
