Star Wars The Bad Batch - SPOILERS

MarkB

Legend
An enjoyable first episode. I don't have much attachment to this squad from The Clone Wars or other EU material, but they're likeable enough so far, and the couple of kid characters managed not to be annoying.

It is yet another "What I did during Order 66", which has been done a lot, but we're getting more of a view of the aftermath from the Clone Army's perspective, which is interesting so far. Seeing the start of the Tarkin Doctrine and the re-organising of the Imperial military could be good.

I wonder how long this series will run. It feels like it has the potential to bridge the gap between the Clone Wars / Prequel era and the Rebels cartoon.

Was that Shaak Ti being escorted out of Kamino?
I asked elsewhere and the consensus was she died in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.
It does sound interesting hope they can keep up the interest and skip the bad writing seen in the other releases this year.

I haven’t watched the Clone Wars, but figured I’d check this out while waiting for Loki.

I didn’t hate it.

Not sure if you know this, but the connection to Rebels is there already.

Caleb Dune, the padawan at the beginning, grows up hiding out, and changes his name to Kanen Jarrus.

D'oh! I completely missed picking up on his name.

He also had the same voice. Which kind of didn't work for a 10(?) year old.

The big mystery is Omega (a name that presumably denotes "final clone"). Who was her template? She vaguely resembles Satine, which could connect to Obi Wan and/or The Mandalorian. It is theoretically possible to change the gender of a clone though.

I wouldn't be surprised to learn she's the culmination of their research since they made all those male clones I guess they were wondering if they could create a female one!

I wonder who she's cloned from? :unsure: Just a female version of Jango? Will we see her as an adult in some future Disney+ show?

She's clearly an enhanced clone like the Bad Batch, maybe they accepted a new donor for a sample and she's the result of that new template.
Would be ironic that they would be developing the means Palpatine would desperately need a force sensitive host body and Tarkin comes along and orders all of the enhanced clones killed unaware the Emperor desperately needs the Kaminoans research?!

Sure, but if he did find out, he'd first take the research and then blast the planet down to atoms. The last thing he wants is entire armies of Force users after he's just exterminated the Jedi.

It will be interesting to see if like Legends Kamino goes into active rebellion using the remaining clone troopers to defend themselves and Boba Fett has to come in and deal with them!
Given this is Tarkin its entirely possible he'll blow the whole place up and remark it was unfortunate they killed themselves.

When you said escorted I thought you meant alive. I wonder if there’s more to this in the future

If Kamino is the base of the Republic’s clone army and the place where they are created, I’m surprised it isn’t the focal point of the war. Wouldn’t the droids focus everything on that one location?

And would not the Republic defend it heavily? So it's a wash. :) And remember, Kamino had been wiped from many star charts and databases. Most folks had never heard of Kamino, and even if they did, how would they know that's where the Republic got the clones from? But there was a story arc in Clone Wars where there was an attack on Kamino, but it was defeated.

There where attacks on Kamino in The Clone Wars series.

what are the chances the clone is the ancestor of Rey (a palpatine clone)? Was that a demonstration of force powers (her warning) and was the escape (hatch door) part of a bigger plan? The top general isn't aware that special clones were made?

Its more likely Palpatine doesn't know the Kaminoans were successful in creating a force sensitive clone and the Kaminoans rebellion will likely end with the Empire learning far too late of their success.
However only time will tell for sure.
I'd rather they start looking for a cure for their advanced aging which is how Rex learns its a possibility but needs help finding it?

Watched the first episode and liked it. Very 'black company' combat dirty tricks going on. It's the first Star Wars animation episode I actually finish. Might go back and try again with the older series since we now have Disney+.
