Rookies would be the first episode of the series featuring mainly clones.
When designing clones, they wanted to make sure there were small but noticeable differences between each of them. After the episode’s positive reception, the development team made plans to feature future episodes with the clones in the series.
More from that one Fett reunion, because I keep adding more family members pffbt. Part 1 - Part 2
Anyway so last night @ahsokaisawesome and I were talking about 99 in this AU and how obviously he’s the sweetest, wisest ol’ grandpa-figure in the Fett clan. Though he’s not actually anyone’s direct grandpa; he’s the brother of whoever it was that sired Sifo-Dyas, Alpha, etc. I just figure that that parent (and in fact most of the Fett parents of that generation) must have been fairly hardass-y for Sifo and Alph to have ended up the way they are, but I can’t see 99 as having ever been a drill-sergeant parent. So I thought, maybe 99 can’t have kids due to his birth defects, so instead he becomes the kindly uncle who tempers the effects of his siblings’ parenting styles. So technically he’s the great-uncle of all the cousins in this picture. But in spirit he’s everyone’s grandpa. uwu
I also figure that his legal name is Niles, and over the years it slowly transformed to Nye-Nye to mirror other grandparent-level names like Nana or Pop-Pop. Then it turned into “99″ partly as a clever play on sound and partly because it was easier for the little kids to write. Though many people still say “Nye” or “Nye-Nye” aloud, instead of wasting time on all the syllables in “Ninety-Nine.” ;P
Another Fett clan gathering, because I like making the same jokes over and over. The Case + Dogma family is freckley, and I guess the the Hevy + Cutup + Droidbait family is a little curly? And then Crys is Crys. Meanwhile Kix is one of those people who manages to keep a very level head right up until the moment he loses his chill entirely.
