Can you clarify a bit? Do you want space backgrounds, or indoor backgrounds? Do you want just images or plugins?

Well 3ds max is rather easy to use, I got to try it once at my dad's friend's work (he took me there once, he works as a 3D animator for some company in Montreal) and he let me try, as well as show me a couple of basics. If you need help, I could tell you what I know, which is basically how to keyframe, render, move around your objet, move the object, and some other really really basic stuff. And for the models Scifi3D seems awesome.

3dsmax's manual is very informative, and it comes with skinning tutorials.

There are a number of tutorials in the help menu at the top of the screen. If you are trying to animate characters you can either use the bones system or if you have Character Studio you can use a biped (which is much easier). Character Studio tutorials are found in the help menu under extended help. Each tutorial should come with a set of scenes to help you practice.

Just a note related to the original topic...
For MANY usable, Star Wars backgrounds, a great source of images is the SciFi3D site's WIP section. This contains loads of renders of various interior models that are fatastic even before being complete.

Some examples:
Death Star II Tower Page
An AMAZING Millenium Falcon interior
Shuttle Cockpit
and check out this Coruscant Interior

There are many more images through out the WIP section.
Many of the pictures are somewhat small, but by the time you compress your video down to internet-size, this shouldn't be an issue. Hopefully it can get you started.
Anyway, make sure you include very clear credits to the original modellers on these if you use them.

Have fun.
