    What am II confusing them with? Wasn't there a Storm Trooper breed with limited Force Powers, in thick suits?

    I thought this episode would be another side quest on the path to returning the Child.

    And I was very much wrong. While it was another side questy episode, they are building to something big.

    That is why I this point I feel the series lack true filler episodes, because a lot of things are tying together. While some episodes can be skipped, watching them all helps you appreciate the episodes more.

    The Phase Zero Dark Troopers were cybernetic adapted clones who used lightning ARC Caster rifles in later games (BF II), could be that?

    Had smoke grey thickened stormtroopers gear with a jump pack, featured in the OG Battlefronts and the Galactic Battleground games; no force powers that I can recall.

    Well, I find Cuis Trooper/stormtrooper. But, they wore regular storm trooper armor.

    As for the things being proto-Snokes, maybe, but I'm not sure if the guys in the vats are clones, rather failed experiments of trying to give (presumably) Force powers to non-Force sensitive humans.

    The Hologram of the tech from season 1 said they made a transfusion, and that the subject showed promise for a fortnight, befor the body rejected the blood. They also have a volunteer lined up to be next, so they don't seem to be creating clones.
    Dark Troopers were droids.

    Also, the experiment definitely seems like they were referring to proto-Snoke/attempts to resurrect Palpatine to me. The timeline makes sense. Then again I can see the force-sensitive angle too.

    Dark Troopers are a weird thing in canon. They seem to be droids in some versions, just elite black-armored Stormtroopers with jetpacks in others.

    They've had a few retcons that got worked into 'different stages' of the program. I think Originally they were envisioned as droids, but then later as Cyborg enhancements on regular troopers/force sensitive ones. Later it was retconned to be clone troopers getting cybernetic augmentation, but no new canon was ever established in a mainline series/movie, so its been up for grabs since forever.

    It's hard to say, my only personal experience with them has been through two video games that I think are non-canon, Battlefront (the original ones) and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Haven't seen any other sources of info, personally. No comics or movies. I was surprised that Jedi: Fallen Order didn't have any, tbh.

    After this episode, I'm kind of curious. What happened to the Armorer? She kind of made it seem like she was sacrificing herself to keep away the Stormtroopers, but she killed them all when they came that way. After they escape and take down the Moff, they claim that Navarro is free from the Imperials, meaning the garrison was all wiped out. So the Armorer should still be alive in the sewers, why didn't Jin stop by when he came back?

    Well to be fair, why would he stop by? He only went there to get repairs, his mission is still priority. Hell, he didnt even waste time as soon as he finished the side quest he took off immediately.

    The Child's lack of self restraint is my favorite trait of him.

    Touche. His group aren't exactly one for sentimentality.

    It was pretty explicitly stated that the experiment is about trying to populate a host with midichlorians. No reason to believe cloning is involved in any way.

    I am sure they are creating a sith warriors (or trying to). Since its before Luke made a Jedi temple.


    They look like clones to me. Also one of the characters in series worked on Kamino clone tech.

    The figures in the tanks looked similar to the snoke clones seen in the movies. While that could just be a generic husk I think the connections all point to clones. Cloning might not be the end goal though and could just be the means they are using to test the implanting of force powers.
