As recently as 5 years ago, I was probably convince-able regarding an “Anakin saved the Jedi children” retcon in #StarWars
Every year since, it has seemed more vitally essential that it’s depicted how rapidly fascism and cult-think convince “good people” to, directly and indirectly, kill schoolchildren.

@Challis2070 Got it. Hopefully this thread will help illustrate what the media mischaracterized when they used the crude reference of "a $5000 Star Wars Hotel" to describe the #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser.
It's truly revolutionary in terms of licensed & themed, immersive interactive entertainment.
And I honestly don't think we will ever see something like this again. The investment is too high, too few understand immersion like Disney & even fewer have an IP like Star Wars.
I forgot to mention, the swag exchange began once we got past the gate. There's a tradition that started last yr where passengers would bring little in-universe items to share while on-board.
I have these zinc-alloy "New Republic" credits that I brought along to share. They were a hit with kids in particular who loved Sabacc & started learning Aurebesh with it.
I got a Resistance logo'd scarf, a "pamphlet", Imperial credits & some other items shared with me. #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser
What's in the 501st.
#StarWars #CloneWars #Rebels
"Wait, people went thru the gate at 12.30pm? I thought rope drop was 1PM?"
It is. You have to go through metal detectors & down the boarding hall to view the intro video in groups. We were of course the 1st group & had our photos taken at the Chandrila logo.
The crew member that gave us our intro before boarding the Halcyon was a fun-loving dork of the highest degree & would joke around with the passengers as we waited. With an occasional photo bomb.
See that door in the back? When waiting inline, you may notice a passenger lead disappearing into it while escorted by a crew member. We thought it was to go to the bathroom.
Oh, did I mention your #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser adventure starts the moment you check in & get into line at the CSL Spaceport? The whole damned trip is loaded with surprises.
But I've said too much.
The 1st thing you notice while waiting to board the #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser is the concrete 'gate'. It's got a Magic Band reader & a fingerprint reader & people fly thru it at 12:30PM. (You receive your M-bands the moment you get in line.)
The line builds FAST. Lots of people behind us are decked out in full Star Wars regalia. Everyone is elated - even the moneybags 'NY Investment Broker' behind us who got Grand Captain's Suite. His family is First Order, of course. (But I kid.) 🤣
George Lucas: Ok, now for Episode 2, we’re going to need a LOT more Jar Jar than we had in the previous film.
The SW5e Sentinel class! In this next installment of a beginner's guide to Star Wars 5e (SW5e) I take a look at the the force caster class that lets you be a mix of the Guardian and Consular! If you aren't fully sold on full caster or full melee combat, this class gives a lot of options to play a mixed role.

#UnderNoPretext #StarWars If you didn't register, destroy or turn in your pistol with a brace, congrats!. You just made yourself a felon. I hate that I stayed oh so legal on this one. I already got an approval from the feds so this may just work out. So I'll have a free tax stamp on my gear.
As we stepped out of the car, CSL porters immediately grabbed our bags & attached CSL tags to them while a crew member spoke to the party leader (me) about our name & details.
We immediately gravitated to getting our photo taken in front of the famed #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser entry wall then got in line.
We discovered we were the SECOND party in line. The FIRST party was a couple from the 501st. Wow - HARDCORE. 😁 We promptly began to bond by NERDING TF OUT, laughing every 15 seconds.
Note: Upon approach to the #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser, "Chandrila Star Lines Security" stops & inspects the car. I preempted the guard as she approached with:
"We have no blasters or firearms of any kind. We don't smoke, have nothing flammable & sabers are hilts only, blades removed. We've read & accept the rules of liability."
She laughed heartily, speed-read some boilerplate in sub-10 seconds (she said it was mandatory) & said, "Very well-prepared, by the way... best journey!"
I'm really hoping to finish up and post a longform vid by the end of next weekend but we'll see...

For the road currently being undertaken, I'm finally delving into #StarWars #TheCloneWars the television series. I'm separating each episode into its own summary / comment page. Feel free to follow along.
I don't have a schedule for this but will post when I have new entries up.
Here's the intro and the first episode. From there, you can go to the main blog to find the first four episodes posted.
4/5 to "Star Wars: Darth Vader - Dark Lord of the Sith, Vol. 3: The Burning Seas"
Art continues to be good, the Mon Cala storyline is terrific. The weird "hunt me" one shot story and the forced "of course he warned Erso" Rogue One tie-in were not as terrific.
So this is what it's like on approach to the #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser. NGL, this drive is surprisingly riveting.
If you're like us, everything you see labeled with Starcruiser branding really got the whole car PSYCHED UP.
✅ Highway signage for SWGS... SQUEEEE!
✅ Shipping container w/ SWGS... SQUEEEE!
✅ Obelisk & SWGS security check... SQUEEEE!
✅ Spaceport passenger dropoff... SQUEEEE!

Rebel Troopers, Vader, and Luke primed with grey. Forgot to take a pic when it was still outside. Oh well.
Regardless how bad some #StarWars media is, there is always one clear and bright message: in the face of fascist oppression, decent people have to find the courage to stick together and resist.#OneWayOut
Now that the PC version plays...okay, I can finally get my Jedi on.
Still disturbed by the lack of poncho!

That thing about wearing the M-Band & it "allowing you to interact w/ the #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser cast"...
Our belief is that the cast wears portable RFID transceivers that can detect passenger M-bands within 3ft & start messaging them. Only those that have engaged the characters receive notifications to participate in their adventures. This is why everyone's experiences are different.
Even if you're silent, you'll still be messaged by 1-2 characters on the Datapad app to get involved.
Random #starwars thoughts:
I've been reading the wikipedia page on Magical Realism, and I have a theory now that:
a) the original trilogy fits more into the "Space Opera" subgenre of sci-fi, which is more of a Magical Realist setting than hard sci-fi, specifically because no attempt was made to explain the Force (this is called authorial reticence for anybody who cares).
Accessing the Atrium terminals via your M-band on the #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser is very important as some adventures or missions start & are aided there.
It'll tell you what physical access you have on the ship & if your M-band will open certain areas.
It's not good enough to ride the coattails of others: You have to accomplish the missions or other 'experiences' don't appear for you.
This is some of what makes the #Halcyon experience similar to an elaborate "Escape Game".
Every #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser passenger receives & wears a unique, passengers-only Disney Magic Band. (or "M-band" as it's referred to by cast & crew) It's used for:
✅ Accessing your cabin (i.e. your room key)
✅ Activating the Halcyon's very-important Atrium & in-cabin terminals
✅ Interacting w/ cast members
✅ "Anytime" Lightning Lane access to Rise of the Resistance & Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run.
✅ Any purchases in Batuu or on the Halcyon ("Chandrila Collection", "Sublight Lounge")
Ever notice how some shows seem 'forced' & dialogue comes across as lacking nuance or having all the sublty of a 5 year old?
That's some of the differences between good & bad writing & it's quantifiable.
The following explains why #StarWars #Andor appealed to so many people & #StarWars #ObiWan was less so.

Sorry for posting two videos but I just didn't get around to scanning these in yet. This is a GP rarity #starwars #tradingcard from the 2023 pre-release set. I actually broke an entire box of this tonight -12 packs.
The foil effects on this are INTENSE, it's like a lenticular firework or something, the lightsaber looks like a real one.

When you're in orbit around Batuu on the #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser, your view from your cabin is phenomenal. We stared in awe at the windows forever.
You can see moving ships in orbit, movement around the planet & of course the in-room display reflects your arrival.
One of the exclusives every passenger sees on display is the #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser Training Light Saber. It's available in the "Chandrila Collection" and it ain't cheap.
It's substantially lighter than the sabers from Savi's but it takes the same saber blade, although it rotates into the hilt the opposite direction like the Legends hilts do. It's also customizable with an Aurebesh letter that's supplied in the case.
It seemed to work a little wonky with my custom blade from JayMoo.
There's a number of digital objects that weave their way into your #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser adventure that only you may uniquely have to unlock parts of a broader story on the #Halcyon & #Batuu.
How are they used? I'll leave that up to your imagination. But just remember: You meet an awful lot of actual people on your journey including those from the First Order, the Resistance, and even Smugglers.
Some time ago, a friend gave me this #StarWars #funko #funkopop of #HanSolo in the #MilleniumFalcon . Cool, right? The weird thing is that the box it came in said Star Wars - Bird of Prey. Um, bird of prey would be a #Klingon ship from #StarTrek. What the heck?
We're wondering if there was some kind of translation issue where they keyed on "falcon" & that somehow became just "bird of prey".
Not sure how long Han would survive on a Klingon ship. I think they'd be harder to con than Imperials.

But when you do hit #StarWars #GalaxysEdge, see if you can catch up with Din Djarin or Fennec Shand. They're 2 of the most fun characters in #BlackSpireOutpost.
And hit Docking Bay 7 for a meal & try the "Trandoshan-style Pasta with Braised Bantha".
BE 100% SURE to mop up the green sauce with your bites of beef & pasta. You're welcome.
I love #StarWars #GalaxysEdge & it's always worth the time exploring the amazing discoveries & sites available as a guest in #BlackSpireOutpost.
Unless you're a guest on the #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser. Then get your &%$ moving, passenger. You've got missions to complete, trades to negotiate & crates (oh god, sooo many crates) to scan . 🤣 For example, do Oga's via Hollywood Studios AFTER your trip.
Sit down with your favorite cup of morning beverage and watch as the Major tries to find various kinds of work.

During your stay on the #StarWars #GalacticStarcruiser, don't be surprised when you find yourself collecting all those receipt folios from all your insane purchases at the "Chandrila Collection", the fabled on-board gift shop, where only Halcyon passengers can get rare, exclusive Starcruiser merch, not available anywhere else - not online or on-planet.
Criminies, I spent a King's ransom in that shop. 😁

Don't listen to anyone who says, "Don't get drinks while dining."
If you order it early, you'll get both your drinks & your bill in time for post dining adventure.
Sincerely, Crown of Corellia is a great place to get ripped with fellow passengers talking about your adventure & sharing hints about what you've discovered & maybe trading swag... especially over Blue Shrimp. 😁
Which is nerdier: Star Wars or Star Trek?

This bantha has seen some things.
Star Wars release date in the US was May 25 ... 1977.
I can't believe it's almost half a century that the movie was recorded.
Harrison Ford once described Mark Hamill as the "master of his own experience." Now, the 71-year-old former Jedi is entering a new era of creativity. He talks to Esquire's Brady Langmann about his recent career, including "The Last Jedi," "What We Do In the Shadows" and "The Machine" (out tomorrow).
