The Pleiades, also called the Lylat Cruiser, is a special ship that has not appeared in any Star Fox Game, but in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a stage. It can cruise through the entire Lylat System; famous parts being Corneria, Meteo and the Sargasso Region. It's name comes from the actual Pleiades, a cluster of stars.
As a Stage
Lylat Cruise is in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It is situated on an original spacecraft called the "Pleiades", flying around various areas of the Lylat System. The original Great Fox, Arwings, and Wolfens can be seen at various points of the stage.
The stage itself does not have much hazards, besides the ship tilting to-and-fro as it makes turns and avoids shots from other ships. Also, the ledge is quite thin, so recovering characters may be caught under the ledge, like what happens in Melee's Battlefield. The Pleiades flies through many events: An epic space skirmish between the Cornerian army and an enemy army, a hazardous Star Fox flight through Meteo the asteroid belt, a dogfight between Star Fox and Star Wolf, a peaceful flight through the atmosphere of Corneria, and a cruise through space where the dogfight happens.
Similar to the Corneria and Venom stages in Super Smash Bros. Melee, the Star Fox characters can perform a Starfox Secret Taunt that allows them to contact their teammates. The conversation that ensues, as well as the characters involved, depends on who initiates the call and where the Pleiades is currently flying. The talk box is slightly updated in graphics compared to Corneria and Venom's version.
