Οι ιθαγενείς της Πανδώρας, με βάση τα μέσα που διαθέτουν στον πλανήτη τους, θα έπρεπε να είναι πολύ πιο εξελιγμένοι τεχνολογικά από τους γήινους εισβολείς. Εξηγεί ο Τζέισον Κότκι:
Τhe Na'vi have regular and intimate access to a moon-sized supercomputer -- a neural net supercomputer at that -- that connects them to every other living thing on their world and have had such access for what could be millennia.
It just doesn't add up. The Na'vi are too capable and live in an environment that is far too pregnant with technological possibility to be stuck in the Stone Age. Plot-wise it's convenient for them to be the way they are, but the Na'vi really should have been more technologically advanced than the Earthlings, not only capable of easily repelling any attack from Captain Ironpants but able to keep the mining company from landing on the moon in the first place.
