Potential Galactica backstory?

Sun Mar 12, 2017 8:49 pm

I've been reading through some of the threads talking about which Secret Weapon should be removed first (or is most likely to be), and Air/Galactica is coming up first in each one. This primarily seems to be because "the theme doesn't fit the area at all, Nemesis makes the area what it is etc." Therefore, I've had an idea for a new scenario for Galactica. As it sticks out like a sore thumb in terms of theming in Forbidden Valley, perhaps it would make sense to take advantage of the space theme and integrate it into the Nemesis story. Maybe connect it to the Phalanx and have you chasing the Nemesis creature as it hurtles towards the resort, or some other connection.

Apologies if this would be better in the general section of the forum.

I'd rather Galactica and Nemesis stay separate- the Nemesis story is good and all but it's good as it is and I don't feel that involving another coaster would necessarily work. Also the story has been used too much recently for other attractions so a break would be welcome.

Fair point, it does have S-T now and there was the scare zone last October. My idea really was that it maybe would help to draw it together somehow so that the area doesn't have as much of an "us and them" feel. Even something as subtle as a slight colour/music change like with Rita when Th13teen took over Ugg Land and turned it into the Dark Forest.

I absolutely agree! Galactica definitely sticks out. However, I think that the ride should be taken over by the monster that escaped in Sub-Terra. It could have the same colour scheme as Nemesis.

Galactica doesn't really stick out. It's back story is intergrated with that of Forbidden Valley. Visually... okay, it does look different to the rest of FV, but that's part of the story right? 

As for what Galactica should have been, I think it should have been themed to a Phalanx flight academy, where riders were tasked with controlling the Nemesis Monster, would have been a much more consistent way for the ride to be intergrated into the existing area.

Personally, I think it might be interesting if one of the planets you visit in your journey was the planet that the Nemesis creature came from. It would be interesting if while flying through, you encountered either another nemesis creature, or other creatures that have the same overall design. It would be a small interlude, like every other planet, but it would help link it to the rest of the sector while still keeping Galactica its own thing, and it would be interesting at least to see what the planet the nemesis creature came from.
