- The recent 1.7.29 update for Starfield brought stability improvements, bug fixes for certain quests, and confirmed future updates with Nvidia DLSS support, FOV slider, ultrawide monitor support, and more customization features.
- The Delta-7 Aethersprite-class Light Interceptor, the Jedi Starfighter used by Obi-Wan Kenobi, made its on-screen debut in Attack of the Clones and received praise from fans despite not being among the most powerful Star Wars Starfighters.
A Starfield player sought to recreate the iconic fighter ship of Star Wars character Obi-Wan Kenobi in the game and posted a picture of their handiwork on social media. After posting their take on the Jedi Starfighter, other Starfield fans praised them for their attention to detail, and some made clever references to General Kenobi and the Star Wars series.
The post came shortly after Bethesda released the 1.7.29 update for Starfield. The update brought stability and performance improvements across the board and fixed some bugs for certain quests such as Into the Unknown and Shadows in Neon. In addition, Bethesda confirmed that future updates will bring Nvidia DLSS support for PC players using RTX graphics cards, as well as an FOV slider, 32:9 ultrawide monitor support, and more features for players to customize their experience. With players creating and customizing new ships by the day in Starfield, one player decided to channel their inner Jedi with their new build.
A Reddit user named j_cavs posted one screenshot of their take on Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Jedi Starfighter on the Starfield subreddit. Classified as a Delta-7 Aethersprite-class Light Interceptor, the iconic red and white Jedi Starfighter used by Obi-Wan Kenobi made its on-screen debut in Attack of the Clones. A prototype model of the Delta-7 that had a built-in hyperdrive was piloted by fellow Jedi Council member Adi Gallia in the 2002 game Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter. In Attack of the Clones, the Delta-7 was just elusive enough to evade seismic charges from Jango Fett’s “Slave 1” in an asteroid field dogfight that took place near Geonosis.
With the weapons and landing gear on the hull’s underside and a cockpit located above the rear thrusters, the Delta-7 looks like a smaller version of what would become the Imperial Star Destroyer. The Delta-7 was replaced by the Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptor in Revenge of the Sith. For their attention to detail, j_cavs received nearly 800 upvotes on the Starfield subreddit in half a day. While some users stated that some parts of the ship’s hull clipped through others, the OP stated that it was due to a glitch they took advantage of during the ship’s assembly.
Though the Delta-7 was never among the most powerful Star Wars Starfighters, the fact that it is remembered by fans is a testament to its design. Only time will tell how many more ships from a galaxy far, far away will be recreated in Starfield.
Starfield is available now for PC and Xbox Series X/S.
