Clones After the Clone War Edit

Canonically (thus, not including Star Wars Battlefront II) what happened to the clones?

Did the Emperor have them disposed of, like attack droids, or did he just decide not to clone up another batch and go for enlisted Stormtroopers instead? All I know is that by Han Solo's time they were replaced by regular humans. 03:30, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

  • First of all, BF2 is canon, as proven by the databank. 2nd of all, the clones stayed on as stormtroopers. During the classic era, they used a mix of clones and normal recruits, as demonstrated in Star Wars: Empire (see TK-622). Presumably, all of the original GAR boys stayed in the service until they got old and were retired to places like the CF VetCenter. -LtNOWIS 03:37, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Yes, during the early years of the empire all the stormtroopers were clones, and then they started cloning different people, having multiple cloning templates, and it was near the end when they started recruiting, they had non clones far later on, they waited as long as they could before they started enlistment and eventually drafting their enslaved(I mean allied) worlds

Well in Yoda Stories it looked like after the attack on Kamino. Kamino went into a Ice age.

best way to find new clone templates recruits sombody and if they are good enough clone them


I think we should limit the appearances sections only to where the cloning process/technology appears or is mentioned. Not any place clones appear. The appearance of Boba Fett doesn't mean that we have an appearance of 'cloning' or then we should include every single appearance of Fett, Clone Troopers, Palpatine etc. MoffRebus 12:43, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Clean up Edit

I added these 3 new paragraphs:

"Palpatine as well made several clones of himself that his spirit possessed after he was killed on the second Death star.

On Wayland Joruus C'baoth cloned Luke Skywalker using the hand that Luke had lost on Cloud City. The clone was called Luuke Skywalker and was armed with Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber.

Boba Fett was cloned from Jango Fett by the Kaminoans, but unlike the other clones that were created from Jango, Boba was unaltered. He had no growth acceleration and was otherwise completely human." Crion Naxx

Original trilogy Edit

What source actually states that any of the stormtroopers in Episodes IV-VI are clones?--Lord OblivionSith holocronSith Emblem 21:24, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Improvement Edit

I think this article has improved alot do you think we could maybe remove the "were doomed" thing?

Hello, i'm new here but that doesn't stop me editing stuff right? I find this article badly lacking and i thought i could start improving it. I'd include major cloners (Kamino, Spaarti, Arkania Mikro, Khommites), a bit of their history and what kinda clones, clones and the Force (Luke comments feeling strange resonance from the clones in Thrawn Trilogy), laws, clones and what people think about them and other general stuff.Woorloog 08:23, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

First mentionedEdit

In the list of appearances, it says that cloning was first mentioned in ANH, and I assume that is in reference to Obi's talk about the Clone Wars. However, it also says this is a retcon. What is that supposed to mean? Didn't the original film mention the Clone Wars? DarthMRN 00:24, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

  • I dunno, "Clone Wars" doesn't immediately say that it was a war fought by clones. Unless the ANH novelization said so specifically Lalala la 09:14, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Laws against cloning Edit

I would like to include a section concerning the laws against closing. In "Of Possible Futures: The Tale of Zuckuss and 4-LOM," Zuckuss needs medical care to replace his damaged lungs. The two are trying to save up money to purchased cloned prosthetics, to which 2-1B replies cloning is illegal and assumedly, according to his programming, considered immoral. By what standards was cloning illegal? Old Republic laws? Imperial laws? Perhaps someone out there can add something about this. Toprawa and Ralltiir 22:03, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Question about the Growth Acceleration Edit

Hi. I'm reading the Republic Commando series, and a big part of the plot is that the clones only have half a normal lifespan due to the growth acceleration. This confuses me, as I know that although many retired, there were still a considerable amount of clones operating more than 20 years later, particularly the 501st. Could someone shed some light on this? 14:47, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

By the time first Republic Commando book was released, Battlefront 2 was already in production, so either nobody bothered to update game's storyline to update RC book info, nobody knew about this shortened lifespan stuff, or they simply choose not to. Take your pick :) 15:35, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Personal cloningEdit

Is it possible for a regular civil to have his own clone? Or they only do the cloning in large scale? If it is possible, how much would that cost for a single clone?

After the EmpireEdit

did the new republic repurpose captured clones retrain stormtroopers and you can reuse them and or did they make their own I mean a cloned soldier would be more loyal then a normal soldier do what the original republic di for its jedi only minus order 66.Derekproxy

Behind the scenes? Edit

Should there be a behind-the-scenes section to this article? Perhaps where the non-canon videogame "cloning facilities" (e.g., SWG) can be mentioned? BlackRebelStarbird fodigg(talk) | 16:02, September 2, 2009 (UTC)

What happened to all the clones still being grown at the end of the Clone Wars? Edit

I remember reading something that says that the Kaminoans contract with the Republic would have ended shortly after the clone wars. So what happened to all the clones still being grown at the end of the clone wars. Did Kamino agree to a new contract with the Empire that they would sell the remaining clones to the Empire or were those clones killed when the Empire put down the Kamino Rebellion. Or did something else happen to the clones that were being grown at the end of the Clone Wars?

For some reason I cant sign my user name.

Wasn't the remaining clones crushed by the 501st in the clone rebellion? It did say so in the article I believe. 08:04, December 6, 2011 (UTC)

Cloning Force-Sensitives? Edit

Is the concept of cloning Force- Sensitives canon? Because I keep hearing people say that you "can't clone Jedi or Sith" but I have read about alot of Force- Users being cloned (albiet they are mostly insane). So is Force - sensitive cloning canon? Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

Forse-sensitive Cloning Edit

Hi. Do all Forse-sensitive clones go insane or are there some lucky ones who didn't (like x2)?

  • As far as we know, the clone of Galen Marek doesn't go insane. Also, please remember to sign all posts and comments with four tildes (~~~~). MasterFredCommerce Guild(Whatever) 19:16, April 21, 2011 (UTC)

A New HopeEdit

Can someone help me with this, how is the mention of cloning in A New Hope a retcon, I don't understand. T-888 02:48, September 22, 2011 (UTC)

Limb Replacement Edit

Can you clone limbs for replacement

Dumb Vader Edit

Vader seemed to be more successful in cloning than the Kaminoans (faster), the Spaarti (cloning of force-sensitives) and Palpatine (no rapid aging and no dark side side effects). Does anyone have an idea why he didn't make a clone of his own? Not to replace himself of course, but to use his body as a replacement for his own, which has injuries that cannot be healed. Even if The Force Unleashed II wouldn't be not canon and you cannot clone a force-sensitve. Then he still could have made a non-force-sensitive clone of himself and used his organs and limbs. Robotic limbs and lungs are also not controllable by the force when it comes to healing for example. And organic ones would surely have a better performance.--TeakHoken91.47.77.138 16:24, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

  • Probably for the same reason no-one thought to make a droid army using mass-produced IG-88's. It would destroy the plot.--Dreamteam67 (talk) 02:41, May 3, 2014 (UTC)

Ysalamiri Edit

No mention of Ysalamiri. They were used to cut clones off from the force, allowing faster maturation. 05:36, February 18, 2014 (UTC)

Trying to edit the history section Edit

When I try and publish some added content at the end of the "Early Development" and just before "Reign of the Empire", it instead deletes a whole section of text from Reign of the Empire. I was able to undo the changes, but can't explain why it would do that. I tried it twice and the same thing happened.

Now I don't want to mess with it and screw up the wiki, but I would still like to make my changes. Anybody know how to do this properly?--Dreamteam67 (talk) 02:17, May 3, 2014 (UTC)

  • Seems to have something to do with using SWEIII as a reference at the end of the inserted text.-- 15:38, May 3, 2014 (UTC)
