WTF am I looking at? :shock:
It's confusing isn't it? :lol:
That is... I'm not even sure how to describe it. The resemblance is obvious in everyone except the last one. Is that Commander Riker? That is probably the most "realistic" one of the bunch. She actually reminds me of an actress I've seen before but just can't place where.

To me it sorta looks like Emma Stone.

They're all actresses "face swapped" with Star Trek characters.

Like I think Kirk is Lindsay Lohan.

Star Wars: Squadrons.

This looks amazing. The sound effects are spot on. But my concern is that it's EA Games.

I've watched 2 minutes and been quite impressed - work meeting interrupted me finish watching it - but first 2 minutes make it worth sharing.

Finished it. So. Freaking. Good. Especially once you realize at the end who that boy is.

I thought it was Faceapp's AI generation. I didn't think they were face swaps.

That could be it. Some just seem to bare a striking resemblance to actresses. Like the female Data to me looks like it's Kiera Knightly (sp?) face.

EA gets a lot of (mostly deserved) beef for their Star Wars games, but Fallen Order is great and Battlefront II turned into something really good after they got rid of lootboxes. The story for the campaign is awesome, and the multiplayer has been really good for the past year or so. Squadrons looks like it's going to follow that trend, especially with the promising start of a budget price.

Female Wesley Crusher (now there's a combination of words I never thought I'd write...) looks like Alyssa Milano.

Can you guess how many different "costumes" Leia has worn - including the animated show?

Sorry to be prejudiced, but ... it's not a real Leia, only a look-alike -- unless she's wearing "hair-buns" over her ears. :P
