Janeway had an actual uniform though. This looks like 'generic sci-fi capatain costume' you would see at comic-con

Wasn’t one reason the “Disney characters as Star Wars characters” appearances and merchandise stopped because Disney/LucasFilm supposedly wanted to “protect the integrity of the brand”? How the heck was that damaging to the brand but this “feels like a Star Wars brand knockoff” resort is considered acceptable by TPTB? :oops: Like so many other things, they just don’t know when to stop. I fail to believe fans were asking for this kind of thing with no name characters and stuff done on the cheap, but once again it is a case of “We will tell you what you want, and you WILL love it!” They seem to have learned exactly squat from Galaxy’s Edge. I am not a Star Wars superfan. Don’t watch the animated shows, don’t read the books or comics, don’t have a huge merchandise collection. I am a casual fan who grew up with the prequels and loves those characters, some of the OT characters, and Kylo/Ben due to his ties to the characters before him. I have enjoyed The Mandalorian and can’t wait for the Obi-Wan series. Give me the characters I *actually* love and a resort experience created around them, and I would book this one day in a heartbeat. This mess? Absolutely not. The saddest thing to me is the free with admission Star Wars Weekends were some of the most fun I have ever had at WDW and actually made me a bigger Star Wars fan. Pretty sure this experience as it is would have the complete opposite effect on me. :(

Looks like Flabber from 'Big Bad Bettleborgs'

It's strange that Disney, for all their "story telling" acumen, didn't introduce these characters in the Mandalorian or maybe the Bad Batch - wouldn't even have to have been the same actors. Just a cameo of the character with a throw away line. Like the commander could've been military and got into a fight and said something like "Thats it - I'm running cruise ships from now on". Or having the musical performer performing at one of the bars. Nothing seems to mesh with anything else - even this starcruiser doesn't seem to fit with Galaxy's Edge and neither seem to fit with any of the movies... It's like Jock Lindsay's Hangar Bar has more context...

There's many elements I'm fascinated by in this endeavor, one of which is how they handle mundane guest requests. For example, what if little Tiffany wants to visit Magic Kingdom with her mom while dad and son play space dress up? What if guests are hungry at 3AM and want to UberEats some McDonalds? At what point do CMs break character to deal with guest issues? The "garden" to alleviate claustrophobic guests issues is literally a small prison yard. Baffling.

They still think that they can charge whatever for something Star Wars related and people will pay for it. Why they still think that after the softer than expected opening for Galaxy's Edge, I don't know.

Yes! and my point is that it has all been poorly presented for this experience. Rather than being interesting, an enhancement it's the opposite.

My point, in which I was replying to, was that not only was it not a "new" alien species created by Disney, but that it was first introduced by a character played by George Lucas himself.

Will there be a CM special test voyage pre-maiden voyage for actual guests? Sort of sea trials for a new vessel.

So I am curious as to how much droids will be used on the ship. One of the things that I was expecting was a heavy use of droids - fixed AA ones for atmosphere used to "run the ship", but also a number of puppet ones for kinetics and show to give the ship life. Given the price tag of the ship, I expected to see a lot of them but with promotions not really showing much... I'd like to believe they are just holding it back, but with every piece of promotion being underwhelming, I'm increasingly concerned that Disney is just totally mailing it in. I really thought they would be going all out on this but I can't really understand what is going on with the execution. Also, one thing I would think would be interesting is if they have some random (not story essential) aliens that are also passengers or crew on the ship that vary from voyage to voyage. Just have some random Rodian or Trandoshan or Mon Calamari or Gungan, etc. just show up for a dinner or a show and not really be a focal point but just be there for atmosphere.

Disney: "Okay, so we know you didn't love that last one, but THIS will SURELY knock your socks off!" Everyone: "How does it keep getting WORSE??" At what point do they decide to do themselves and us the favor of some serious retooling? Because it seems like absolutely nothing we've seen yet has hit with the public. Some execs must be pulling their hair out.
