- "Trick or treat!"
- ―A popular saying during the Galactic Moon Festival
- "All the citizens of Mos Eisley and Moenia gladly agreed to participate in the Galactic Moon Festival, when Jabba asked them. With a townsperson targeted, say 'Trick or Treat'. If they like your costume they will give you Galactic Moon Coins. If not, use your Trick or Treat device and scare them!"
- ―Z'ozpheratu, to a spacer
The Galactic Moon Festival was created by Jabba the Hutt to gain more support from Tatooine and Naboo. He grew tired of festivals of love and life, so he aimed to create the scariest event of the year. He sent Aponte to advertise the event, while Z'ozpheratu was tasked with handing out costume holo-projectors in both cities.
These holo-projectors would allow spacers to "dress up" in a number of scary costumes, including Droidekas, Toydarians, and Hutts. These celebrants would attempt to scare others with their costumes, by exclaiming, "Trick or treat!" If they were genuinely scared or impressed by the costume, the participants would be given Galactic Moon Coins. These coins could be given to Z'ozpheratu in exchange for certain prizes.
Behind the scenes
This Galactic Moon Festival was first introduced to Star Wars Galaxies with the "Game Update 5.10", published on October 14, 2008, in order to coincide with the real-world festival of Halloween. The festival also shared similarities with Halloween.
