I thought it might be cool to have a place to ask questions about Star Wars, because there's a good chance someone here will know the answer.

Here's my first:
Do clone troopers get promoted or are they born with their rank?



*MOD EDIT* It is cool! And seconded. It shall be carried out at once. In fact we'll make it a sticky so everyone can more readily find it!

Hmmm....I'm not sure. I know ARC troopers and such are bred to be more independent. But didn't troopers get promoted in Traviss' books? Like those count anymore, though. Sad

I would say they get promoted. Didn't Cody get retrained in order to be a commander? I imagine that as squad sergeants and such get wiped out, the more senior clones get promoted by their superiors. It would be rather silly to put fresh clones out of the tank straight into command when they have veteran clones to choose from.

Okay. I'm just thinking that the Clone Wars is only three years long and Cody's been 'Commander Cody' the whole time, as far as I can tell.

I think you are right.

The most accurate answer is probably a combination of both being born into ranks and field promotions. Prior to the start of the Clone Wars presumably the clones were born into their ranks since it stands to reason that if all other roles were ones they were born into their NCOs and Officers would have been intentionally born for that purpose. Odds are though that during the Clone Wars field promotions were common enough since casualties probably outpaced their ability to ship in replacements. Otherwise the command structure would have fallen apart after every battle if they had to wait for replacement clones.

So the answer is yes to both.

I've been meaning to ask this for a while. In Fatal Alliance, Shigar wants to be romantically involved with Larin and anyone who knows doesn't seem to think much of it (except maybe Ula Razz ). So... where Jedi allowed romantic attatchments at this time? When did it become unorthodox?

Jedi aren't allowed to be involved romantically during TOR. They're the prequel Jedi, with the exception that if the council approves it they can marry. But they have to prove they don't have an attachment.

Tales of the Jedi had Jedi that were married and had children. Then KOTOR 40 years later had the prequel Jedi norms, because Bioware doesn't follow continuity very well.

They were following the new continuity, one put down by the prequel films. Anyway, it's stated in one KOTOR TPB or source book (can't think which one - they all run together for me) that the no attachment line was becoming increasingly popular in the intervening time, and while it wasn't accepted by the whole of the Jedi Order, it was beginning to look like it would soon be.

Yes. And your prospects for getting marriage approved was better if you belonged to an important Force lineage. I wonder why the Jedi didn't take the next logical step and start a breeding program to produce the Kwisatz H... I mean the Chosen One. Wink

On the other hand, like the Grand Master's secret son proves, rules and actual behaviour are two different things even for the Jedi.

I think there was a second season episode on Ryloth where we saw normal clone troopers getting promoted. I have a memory that they were actually promoted to be ARC troopers...

Yes, it was two members of Domino squad: Fives and *sniffles* Echo.

And didn't the entire "ARC Troopers" Season 3 opener hinge on the fact that the clone troopers might some day become ARC Troopers?

I've been wondering (don't worry, you won't need protective gear this time) what real world language is the Mandalorian language based on? By that I mean words, not the basic structure and syntax. I think it's based on Maori. Any ideas?

Moved from a locked thread.

I'm not 100% sure what kerrpmb's asking here. Perhaps you could clarify?
