It looks like there will be eps 11-20 in the spring too!!!


So is this still considered EU? Even though GL has a hand in it.
Also down in the lower left hand corner it say watch online, so that means if you got the internet you don't have to wait for TV.

That was a pretty cool site. I'm glad we get a little background on some of the characters. I'll probably have to catch it online as I can't even remember to record South Park which comes on once a week.

I think it is still considered EU. I think it's only the movies that are classed as canon.

PENDO!

V-19 Torrent starfighter



Height:
26 meter wide, 6 meters long, 9 meters tall (in flight)

Manufacturer:
Slayn & Korpil

Type:
Republic starfighter

Weapon:
Blaster cannons, concussion missiles

Affiliation:
Galactic Republic





Prototypes of the Slayn and Korpil V-19 Torrent starfighter were first introduced at the Battle of Geonosis. Having proven their worth as an assault fighter with exceptional speed and maneuverability, the Republic quickly produced V-19s to add to the arsenal of the growing clone army. Because of the months of training it took for the Republic's clone trooper pilots to become proficient with the vessel, the fighter was not available in large numbers for some of the early engagements of the war, but they made a prominent showing during the Battle of Muunilinst.
Initially designed as a short-range fighter, Republic technicians later added a Class-1 hyperdrive to equip the vessel for escort missions. The ship is unique in that it has two pairs of folding airfoils that give the ship added maneuverability and provides pilots with easy access to the ship's sliding canopy. The lower split airfoils coupled with enhanced repulsorlift engines make the ship an exceptional vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) fighter.

IG Lancer Droid



Homeworld:
Muunilinst

Height:
1.96 meters

Manufacturer:
Phlut Design Systems

Type:
Battle droid

Weapon:
Power lance

Vehicle:
Speeder bike

Affiliation:
InterGalactic Banking Clan; Confederacy of Independent Systems





As moneylenders to many of the most advanced technology firms in the galaxy, the InterGalactic Banking Clan had at its disposal the latest high-tech weapons to turn against the Republic during the Clone Wars. Phlut Design Systems, a Muunilinst-based weapons development firm, took out a sizable capital investment loan from the IBC to fund a secret battle droid program that it hoped to sell to the Trade Federation. When PDS was unable to make payments on the loan, the IBC responded by seizing the assets of the company, and, ironically, added the battle droids to the new Confederacy of Independent Systems army.
As an InterGalactic Banking Clan asset, the new droids were renamed the IG-series. The tall, thin battle droids were created in the image of the gaunt Muuns that developed them. They were stronger than the standard Baktoid droids used by the Trade Federation, and had quicker response time. Working with the military advice of bounty hunter Durge, the Banking Clan armed the droids with power lances and anti-vehicle mines, and deployed them on speeder bikes as homeworld security around the commerce citadels of Muunilinst. Durge led an army of IG lancers during the Battle of Muunilinst in the Clone Wars.

Clone SCUBA Trooper




Homeworld:
Kamino

Species:
Human

Gender:
Male

Height:
1.83 meters

Weapon:
Blaster rifle, explosives

Affiliation:
Galactic Republic; clone troopers



Though clone troopers were genetically identical in design, a few elite groups underwent specialized training to better prepare them for specific environments. These combat skills were supplemented by equipment modified for use on specific terrains. One notable group was the clone SCUBA troopers. These aquatic assault troopers were outfitted with modern gear that allowed them to effectively wage war against aquatic cultures that would otherwise enjoy the advantage of fighting in a difficult native environment.
A clone SCUBA trooper's armor is lighter in weight than the standard plastoid-alloy composite armor worn by the line infantry. The helmet features lenses and sensors that help penetrate the ocean murk and bring underwater enemies into crisp focus. Miniaturized scrubbers built into the breathing unit are able to extract oxygen from water environments, and allow for attachment of oxygen tanks. A clone SCUBA trooper wears an aquatic propulsion pack and has maneuverability jets incorporated into his shin guards to allow for impressive underwater agility.

Clone SCUBA troopers carry specialized blaster rifles with a modified collimator barrel array that retards blaster bolt diffusion from the water environment. These troopers are typically outfitted with explosives that take advantage of an ocean's ability to transmit concussive shock. General Kit Fisto led an army of clone SCUBA troopers on Mon Calamari during the Clone Wars.

Mon Calamari Knights




Homeworld:
Mon Calamari

Species:
Mon Calamari

Weapon:
energy lance

Vehicle:
keelkana





The Clone Wars were the catalyst for escalating local conflicts on many worlds. The water-covered planet of Mon Calamari had been a tinderbox for centuries, as cultural differences between the native Mon Calamari and Quarren had threatened to spill into full-scale fighting throughout their long history. When the Clone Wars erupted, the Confederacy of Independent Systems exploited the long-standing resentment between the two cultures, and pushed the planet into civil war.
The Mon Calamari are gentle and peaceful by nature, but the dangers of the deep had taught them martial skills. Voracious sea creatures and the belligerent Quarren had threatened many early Mon Calamari cities in the distant past. The Mon Calamari Knights, an ancient order of noble protectors, had become little more than a cultural traditional in modern times -- a social group that remembered the bloody days of earlier times.

When the Separatist crisis that predated the Clone Wars sparked whispers of impending war, the Knights intensified their training, and brought back the arms and combat skills that made them legendary. The Confederacy-backed Quarren Isolationist League brought the war to Mon Calamari, and the Knights were there to protect the surface cities from their contentious cousins. The Knights teamed up with the clone forces led by Jedi Master Kit Fisto.

A typical Mon Calamari Knight wears armor crafted from the plates of a titan kantrey, strengthened with modern ores mined, ironically, by the Quarren. They carry a carbon-woven cowill-shell shield, and are armed with energy lances. They ride into battle atop carefully trained keelkana, close relatives of the mindless krakana.
