To be honest, I don't think either Air or Galactica have ever really fit that well into Forbidden Valley, but considering FV's theme revolving around Nemeses - an alien creature destroying Earth, Galactica perhaps does hade the upper hand in comparison to Air, thematically. It's not that Air didn't fit in, it just felt more separate than Galactica does with the rest of FV.
Personally, going in to the future, if they can't get the problems sorted with the VR and work out a way to improve dispatch times by next season, I'd like to see the VR removed entirely.
I agree with Justin that it is a shame that they didn't do more actual theming around the ride, because at the moment, if you choose not to wear the VR headset, the ride's name is pretty much meaningless, which brings me onto my next point, that I think that they should change the name of the ride to combine the themes of both Air and Galactica, possibly going with something like "airGalactica" or "airSPACE", unless of course, they were to add more actual galactic theming to the area so that non-VR wearing riders would still get a similar experience, but unfortunately, this is very unlikely to happen.
Overall, I do still like the ride, but I feel the experience it offers could be so much better than at present.
