There has been a cross-section book for every Star Wars film so it's not surprising there's one for Star Wars: The Force Awakens too. Fans would love this.

Just like the earlier cross-section books, this is a large hardcover featuring the cross-section art of selected spaceships and vehicles from the new movie. Kemp Remillard's the artist for the artworks.

The art looks fantastic, painted and 3D at the same time. There are lots of details so printing them so big really helps. Parts of each vehicle are also labeled, just like an infographic. There are also descriptions explaining the mechanism and engineering aspects.

The vehicles featured are

Stormtrooper Transport
Poe's X-Wing
Command Shuttle
Finalizer
Rey's Speeder
Tie Fighter
SF Tie Fighter
Quadjumper
Millennium Falcon
Han's Freighter
Resistance Transport
Snow Speeder

It's really cool to be able to see the vehicles close up because their appearance on screen are fleeting. This book, together with Star Wars: The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary is a must-have for Star Wars fans who like learn more about every little detail from the movie.

If you have earlier books, you can compare how the X-Wings and Tie Fighters have been updated. Millennium Falcon is still included. Finalizer is on a 4-page gatefold. Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle is cool with the folded wings. The design sense is similar to other films, which can be a good or bad thing. Many of the vehicles do look and feel very familiar, but sometimes you wish they could have introduced more radical designs.

Not all the pages are filled with cross-sections. There are 7 double-page spreads of film stills.

The vehicles and starships in Star Wars are among the most interesting aspects of the films. In "The Force Awakens: Incredible Cross Sections", we get insight into the newest designs that appear in the saga's seventh episode. This includes spacecraft (such as the Finalizer) as well as land vehicles (such as Rey's speeder). The cross-sections allow you to look under the hood, so to speak, so that you can see what features and technology is on board (whether it deflector shields, communications antenna, sensors, landing gear, or blaster cannons). A personal favorite of mine in this latest film is Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle - the very large wings that fold upward while landing gives it a very unique look.

Of course, the Millennium Falcon is included - slightly different than when it last appeared in "Return of the Jedi". Also included are the First Order's TIE Fighter and the Resistance X-Wing. Again, the designs are quite similar to the previous incarnations of these fighters, with a few upgrades in both look and capability.

The book is only 47 pages in length and features 12 different cross-sections, but each one has a lot of detail and the image quality is extremely high. The introduction includes a quick primer on technology - including energy weapons, shields, and hyperdrives. The back of the book has a size comparison that allows you to see all 12 vehicles on a single spread. If you are interested in the vehicles of Star Wars, then you should consider a purchase.

I've always enjoyed these books. They may not really tell us anything about how these imaginary spaceships functioned, but they do provide a good sense of the scale and design of the vessels. And the details they provide about construction and usage expands the background of the films immensely.

That said, I'm a little disappointed in this one. I hadn't realized until reading this just how few ships we actually saw in The Force Awakens. I suppose they do need to include the updated versions of the X-Wing and TIE Fighters (both models), but did they really need to include the Millenium Falcon again? For new ships we get Rey's speeder, Han's freighter, Kylo's command shuttle, the new Star Destroyer, and the Resistance and First Order transports. We do at least see these up close, even if we never get a really good look at the exterior of Han's freighter. But they're so strapped for new ships that, in addition to the Millenium Falcon, we get two ships that were basically background props. The quadjumper was on screen for maybe five seconds. It was the ship Rey and Finn tried to steal before it got blown up. The First Order Snowspeeder wasn't even that visible. If it was on screen at all it was during that big Nazi rally on Starkiller Base. And then the book is padded out further with a lot of full page stills from the film.

I'm not that impressed with these new ships either. Apart from the two entirely derivative designs (which do still look cool) we get mostly flying boxes. That's basically all the two transports are. Han's freighter is pretty much the same, just a big box with smaller boxes docked into it. Neither of these will be remembered very fondly by fans. Then we get the evolutions on classical designs.
