Okay, yeah, I’m excited. Are you excited? I like that the tone seems to be fairy narrow, but still exploring things that make sense. The Grand Army of the Republic kept showing us more and more specialization, so it makes sense that they would create some a lot more narrow focused. We’re also getting a lot more of Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec Shand, which I welcome. She felt sorely underused in The Mandalorian, so it’s cool to know we’re going to get back story before the Book of Boba Fett kicks off.

I do have a couple of questions, though… are these clones from different stock? A couple look distinctly different. Also, how much was their growth accelerated to make them elite? Was that started way back before the war started, or did the cloners figure out how to really speed it up and these guys only got a shelf life of a few years? I suppose I’ll have to wait and see on May 4th. A date that may have some sort of joke meaning to Star Wars…

Edit: As was pointed out in our Discord, the origin of these clones looks to have been in the final season of Clone Wars, which I need to get around to watching someday. I’ll need to get around to watching it by May 4th, which is when The Bad Batch arrives on Disney+.
