I'm not sure if this fits better with the TV series, but oh well. Close enough.
Now, ever since I watched the final season of TCW, I've been wondering about the fate of the Kaminoans who knowingly programmed Order 66 in the minds of the clones. I mean, they were pretty much directly responsible for the Great Jedi Purge, and they did it just because they were paid handsomely.
Anybody have any information on this, or know where I can look to find this out?
Sheesh are there any topics of discussion on these boards you guys deem worthy?
Sometimes I wonder why you bother coming here.
Anyway I'd actually like to know the answer to this question, my guess is they either became comfortable allies of the Empire or were invaded and had all their toys taken away. Maybe it will get a feature in the comic series or something.
I'd be interested to know to what extent they saw the whole thing coming, the top brass at least seemed aware of the Grand Plan.
But why do you want to know? It's like asking where the tool went that Luke used to pry the restraining but from R2. The Kaminoans were no more than a tooling creating the clones for the Republic. The Republic transformed into the Empire and ordered the clones as long as they needed them.
They were a mere supplier, not a race that faced extinction or was a major player in the Clone Wars... They were just a tool. So what happened to them is hardly interesting.
Considering that the Kaminoans are a sentient civilisation, one with an autonomous agenda, and capable of all kinds of cloning operations, I'd say there is a lot more too them than there is to a hammer. And TCW's Order 66 arc proves they have narrative potential.
This is what the EU was for. And the majority of the EU was silly, shoddily pieced together fan fiction/service. If it matters that much to you, go study Legends. As per the new canon, they were just a one-movie plot device to facilitate the awful story. Just like Dexter Jettser, just like Captain Panaka, just like the Imperial officer who said "Hold your fire, there's no lifeforms."
They're neither interesting, nor important characters. They just had a small, simple role to play. They have an expanded existence in the Expanded Universe, so go consult the EU.
