No wonder Sheev took over the Republic, he has access to Michael Jordan's Secret Stuff!

Spare batteries are pretty key.

I thought the baby yoda blood stuff was in reference to the old video game/ comic book stuff about Dark Troopers being cyborgified clones with force powers. Which was always just a way to cram in tougher enemies.

Yeah that's what I got out of the mandalorian. Those dark troopers were hilariously kitchy though. Like evil go-bots.

Not only are you thinking of the Dark Forces series, but you're smashing MULTIPLE GAMES of the series together. The Dark Troopers from the original Dark Forces were cyborg Stormtroopers initially who were then replaced by or intended to be replaced by the droids seen in Mando Season 2. In Dark Forces III: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, there's an mini-boss enemy type that shows up every now and then called the Reborn and they're people who were artificially given Force powers by the bad guy and then handed a lightsaber with zero training and sent out to make life hell for Kyle Katarn.

This is why palpatine wanted to exterminate the jedi to begin with.

I feel like, considering the narrative fuckery, the Palpatine plan requires literal post-it notes around key milestones to explain the goofy poo poo.

Also I think we forgot that one time that Sheev went to a random backwater planet to randomly impregnate a random slave using Sheev magic.



Oh Sheev!

Describing that as "disney canon," is kind of interesting phrasing

Sheev fucks, just sometimes itís using the dark side of the Force to have midichlorians to do his bidding rather than his dong.

Man, now we're going to do a total rewrite of the first part of Palpatine's entire plan.

IIRC, her backstory was that she and her parents got captured by pirates and she got sold into slavery?

This thread may be a little dusty now but I just wanted to say that Palpatines entire scheme was completely air tight writing and that it completely checks out.

I love how they were shown though. Like, dump them out into space, whoops, they're robots, all they need to do is fly back. And then they're stomping along to dubstep and punching the door open.

Said before, but one thing about Star Wars I love is the droids and how they're shown; almost every single one is different; they move differently, act differently, talk differently, even ones that are in similar niches can approach them in totally different ways.
