Scientist working with Werner Herzog is in some way connected to Kamino. Wild, probably wrong theory time: were the remnants of the Empire (precursor to the First Order) trying to clone Palpatine? Perhaps they needed to harvest midi-chlorians from another source?
Or maybe the yadpole itself is a clone (though, of course, I prefer to think Yoda and Yaddle got it on, and that’s why Yaddle left the council).
I’m sort of curious about how tracking forbs work. Basically it is like a GPS to the target’s exact location. How does that work? Is this a creature that was already in their possession and was taken, or are they trying to capture it for the first time? It seems the tracker was able to known which room the target was in, so they are somehow able to isolate its location.
Were the henchman guarding the room actually invested in the baby’s safety, or were they also in it for the money?
Maybe the Yoda’s species’ natural affinity with the Force makes them the best candidates for making Force-sensitive clones, and maybe a Force-sensitive clone army is this remnants long-term plan for reestablishing order. The Yoda species seem to have a very long growth period, but cloning allows for age acceleration, making the idea a bit more feasible maybe. Though honestly I would be surprised if their plan is this straightforward, because all I can picture is them having an army of Force-sensitive gremlins!
At the very least, it seems thatthe Empire’s interest in the Yoda species is on the basis of genetics, and all we know about them is that they might be naturally gifted with the Force. So maybe their genes are the key in creating Force-sensitive clones in general?
