Who are Kaoru Niimi, Miazella Celestella, Yuria Misaki, Makoto Harada, Melda Deitz, and all these other characters I’ve never heard of? They weren’t in the original! Why is Akira Yamamoto a girl now? And why is Captain Gideon there?

The production staff have decided to expand the cast for this remake, to increase the female population aboard ship, and provide additional characters to put a new perspective on certain storylines that were previously involved the original lead characters. They have also increased the storyline surrounding the Gamilas Empire and have added characters there to advance those storylines.

This was a very smart move on the creators part in my opinion it brings a lot more depth to the story and the universe!

It certainly was a smart move. It gave the opportunity for viewers to be invested in more than one character, and with the way the story ended this time around, there's potential to bring most if not all of those surviving new characters back in some capacity were a Comet Empire remake to happen.
