The Imperials use the TIE design in their fighters. So who the heck came up with the X/Y/A/B-wing designs that the Rebels took up? They must be surplus something, or do they have a secret supplier that the Empire doesn't know about?

I'm sure that there's some crappy EU explanation for this, but I'd like to know from the movies.

C'mon, George...Episode 3.5 - Birth of the Rebellion (written and directed by someone else)

It would've been wise if the Naboo-fighter would have beared some resemblance to either the X- or Y-Wing.

Not sure I see any other resemblence.

Also, since Alderaan is supposed to be a "peaceful" planet with no weapons, its pretty safe to assume that the "Wings" come from elsewhere.
