S-T Posted March 26, 2005 Report Share Posted March 26, 2005 I watched "Star Wars: Episode II" this week, which brought up a question regarding the consistency of the storyline. Basically, here is the story so far. Senator Palpatine of Naboo is secretly Darth Sideous, a Dark Lord of the Sith. Palpatine engineers an invasion of Naboo by the Trade Federation. The crisis that follows in the Galactic Senate results in Palpatine being elected as Supreme Chancellor, with expanded powers. This, of course, is the first the to becoming Emperor. Palpatine betrays the Trade Federation, sending them to Count Dooku to plan secession from the Republic. Count Dooku is secretly Darth Tryannus, another Sith Lord. Playing both sides against each other, Dooku and Palpatine hoodwink the Senate into granting Palpatine "emergency" powers far beyond his previous expanded powers. Palpatine then orders the creation of an "Army of the Republic". These are the clones that will eventually become Imperial Storm Troopers. Here's the problem. An alien race began creation of the Clone Army ten years earlier. Other than some suspicion from Obi-Wan Kenobi and other Jedi about halfway though the movie, no one seems to question the use of these clones later on when they become the Army of the Republic, especially when Yoda shows up with the army to save the day. Shouldn't the fact that this army was in production for the last ten years have raised a red flag? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
