In the Star Wars movies we've seen the inside of a bridge of capital ships like Star Destroyers or even Darth Vader’s Executor Star Destroyer.

The bridge of Darth Vader’s the Super Star Destroyer “Executor.”

I think we also see the bridge of some Rebel capital ships, such as whatever Admiral Ackbar is commanding during the attack on Death Star II (a Mon Calamari Cruiser)

The bridge of Admiral Ackbar’s Mon Calamari Star Cruiser.

But is there any scene from the bridge of a Corellian Corvette? If possible, the answer should be a screenshot.

After picking up Yoda and Obi-Wan, Senator Bail Organa's Corellian corvette gets a message from Mas Amedda about an urgent Senate session.

And yes, this is the same CR-90 Corellian Corvette that would later end up being boarded by Darth Vader at the start of Episode IV.

Tantive IV swept through the Kashyyyk system on silent running; this was still a combat zone. Captain Antilles wouldn’t even risk standard scans, because they could so easily be detected and backtraced by Separatist forces. (Matthew Stovers ROTS novelization)

And from other angles, thanks to masterful camera work following Obi-Wan and Yoda and Bail's conversation:

And the landing that shows it's CR-90, if novelization text wasn't enough

  • We also see the close-ups of the ship proving it's CR-90 later on, when Bail lands on Alderaan carrying Baby Leia. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 30 '15 at 6:15
  • Ironically, the novelization showed the scene on the screenshot differently - the Senator merely informed Yoda and co that he was summoned by Mas Amedda, they were NOT there to hear him in the cockpit. Instead, they were in the shuttle deck, preparing to attack Jedi Temple. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 30 '15 at 6:17

    Awesome! Thanks. My utter dislike of the prequels made me forget this scene. – Andres F. Dec 30 '15 at 12:04
  • @AndresF. - SOME pieces of prequels weren't so bad :) – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 30 '15 at 14:30

    @AndresF. - just ask in a week. That should help avoid downvotes. I think I might even have an answer – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 30 '15 at 15:28

In addition to DVK's excellent answer, there are actually some close up photos of the model blockade runner used in ANH.

Bridge Closeup with posters

This matches a photo from the From Star Wars to Indiana Jones source book I have, but I don't have access to it, just now. You can see the prop department stuck a miniature film poster and a pinup in there.

There are at least four different CR-90 Corellian Corvettes featured so far in Season 2 of Star Wars: Rebels and a handful of scenes are set inside them.

In Season 1's "Droids in Distress" we see inside Bail Organa's ship (which is so well-capped in DVK's answer) but all we see is a nondescript white hallway.

Hallway

In Season 2, when

!the crew of the Ghost joins up with the Rebel Alliance, the Ghost is often docked with one of the Rebel cell's three Corvettes, but a frustratingly few scenes take place inside the Corvettes.

Docking

In *"The Lost Commanders" there is one scene in a previously unseen war room:

WarRoom

There are no windows to space, so this is not the bridge. A turn-around does show us some guys in Rebel uniforms working at the computer stations around the perimeter.

Computer Dude

Though we don't get to see inside a Corellian Corvette in the episode "Wings of the Master", we do get to see them actually running a blockade with the help of the Ghost, a fleet of A-Wings, and

the first B-Wing.

  • +1 For effort and a well-researched answer, and also because I like Star Wars: Rebels. – Andres F. Dec 30 '15 at 12:05

    This is a cool piece of research, but are any of those images bridge of the corvette? :) – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 30 '15 at 14:31

    @DVK No bridges yet... You answer the real question at hand, but I wanted to give Rebels a chance to deliver. I'll update with more images if they ever set another scene in the Corvette. This was mostly intended to give an example of other Rebels-era Corvette interiors, which are less pristine than Bail Organa's ship. There's probably an interesting future question about animation v. live action affecting ship design... – dunraven Dec 30 '15 at 14:38
  • @DVK You are right, no bridges here. That's why I accepted your answer instead, which does deliver a great picture of an actual Blockade Runner bridge! But I think the effort in this answer also deserves an upvote :) – Andres F. Dec 30 '15 at 15:22
  • @AndresF. - sorry, i'll reserve the upvote till I see a bridge. No Jedi Mind Tricks are going to work on me – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 30 '15 at 15:29
