A @planet satellite captured Shenzhou-17 on the pad at Jiuquan after rolling out earlier today.

Crew and crowds can be seen gathering nearby the rocket as it's prepared to launch three humans to the Chinese Space Station later this month. More: https://www.spacefromspace.com/feature-images/shenzhou-17-rollout-jiuquan-20231019

==============
Liu Wang (CDR) and maybe two Group 3 guys: a flight engineer and a mission specialist.
My bet is on a physician in the crew, since they haven't launched any.

Both Tang Shengjie & Jiang Xinlin are PLAAF lieutenant colonels per their official biographies.

Here’s the Shenzhou 17 crew meeting the press at JSLC some minutes ago:

Regarding mission details: there will be “experimental station repair/maintenance” EVA performed during the expedition. Whether that means regular swapping of parts like on the ISS, or more sophisticated works like those performed on HST or Salyut 7 is TBD.

It's interesting to note that Jiang Xinlin was initially trained as a tank driver but catched a chance to move into the Air Force and to become a fighter pilot and now an astronaut. Quite unique trajectory.
