"This baby belongs to them cloners. What you got here is a Kamino saberdart."
―Dexter Jettster examining one shown to him by Obi-Wan Kenobi[1]

The Kamino saberdart was a type of toxic dart created by the Kaminoans of the planet Kamino. One of these darts was used by the bounty hunter Jango Fett to kill Zam Wesell, who had failed in her mission to assassinate the Senator Padmé Amidala and later captured by Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan Anakin Skywalker, to prevent her from telling said Jedi who hired her. The dart had little cuts on its side that made it instantly identifiable to Dexter Jettster when Obi-Wan brought it to him at his diner for identification, having been unable to find any information about it in the Jedi Archives.[1]

During the reign of the Galactic Empire, several accounts from Sienar Fleet Systems' Advanced Projects Laboratory on the Outer Rim planet Lothal indicate Grand Admiral Thrawn bringing a Kamino saberdart to the Laboratory. The Chiss Admiral sought to create a superior starfighter, the TIE Defender. According to the accounts, Thrawn used the saberdart to demonstrate the Defenders' proposed wing shapes and positions, the heightened speed and maneuverability TIE Defenders would have over other fighter craft, and the "unparalleled" visibility the design would provide TIE/D pilots.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The shooting script for Attack of the Clones gives the name for the saberdart as a "Kamino kyberdart," a name that was later changed. The term "kyber" has been used in canon with kyber crystal.[source?]
