Why Build a Backstory?
First of all, let me be clear – it is absolutely possible to take a trip on the Galactic Starcruiser without building a backstory or sorting out a costume. You will still have fun, and it will still be an amazing individualized experience. In all likelihood, you will never find yourself in a situation where you’re explaining details of your backstory to a primary cast member – they keep their interactions brief on purpose.
So why bother with the extras? There are three specific reasons I encourage people to do a little prep before flying on the CSL Halcyon (whether or not they work with me).
Reason Number One:
Anticipation of any vacation is half the fun, and there are a lot of ways to build excitement for the GSC without spoiling the storyline. I’m also happy to provide spoiler-free and low-spoiler guidance for logistically complicated situations, because everyone should have a good time on the GSC.
Reason Number Two
One of the biggest, and least advertised, features of the GSC is the fact that for 2 days you get to Be Someone. Actions that you take impact major ship events, and by extension events in the larger Star Wars universe. This is a rare opportunity to know that you’re making a substantial, visible difference, and even just a little pre-planning and effort will make that sensation much deeper and more personal.
Reason Number Three – Be your best self. Take advantage of the fact that most of your shipmates are reinventing themselves for a few days (and the crew has never heard of the planet you call home, never mind the state). Leave your real world stresses at the launching pad, and for 44 Standard Hours simply be.
If you’d love a backstory (and possibly a costume), but don’t have the time to put one together yourself, I’d love to help you find your place in the SW Universe.
