Personally I love the idea of having Bothans involved in the ST. However, I'm not a fan of what the Bothans supposedly look like. I say this because it seems HIGHLY unlikley that Bothans could infiltrate any Imperial installation without immediately being recognised. The Imperials were ALL human (and racist) so having them running around Imperial territory unchecked is a plot hole IMO. It might be a bit boring, BUT what if they made the Bothans humanoid? Humanoids that had the ability to camouflage themselves in their environment and thus were natural spies??? NOT shape-change but skin tone etc.... I think that would be totally badass!
