"There it is, R4. Our missing planet, Kamino."
—Obi-wan Kenobi

Kamino is a world in the fictional Star Wars universe. It was here that the Army of the Republic was generated. It is inhabited by a race of tall, elegant creatures, called Kaminoans, who keep to themselves and are known for their cloning technology. Obi-Wan Kenobi was directed here to follow a lead on the whereabouts of Senator Amidala's would-be assassin through a single poison dart. During Obi-Wan's stay on Kamino at Tipoca City, he discovered the source of the Clone Army's genetic code, one Jango Fett and his "son" Boba Fett. Image File history File links Kamino. ...

The Kaminoans

"Welcome, Master Kenobi. I trust you're going to enjoy your stay." —Lama Su, to Obi-Wan Kenobi

In the fictional universe portrayed in the Star Wars films and books, the Kaminoans are aliens that come from the stormy planet of Kamino. They are white-skinned and have long necks. Experts at cloning, they produced the clone army used by the Old Republic. Their entire society is genetically engineered. This occurred in response to rising sea levels on their home planet. The males have crests on their heads; this is a remnant of the Kaminoans evolving from the sea. The cover of the 2004 DVD widescreen release of the revamped original Star Wars Trilogy. ...


The Rebellion

"I never thought it would come to this, when we'd be forced again to teach these an army of newly created Fett clones, who were bred to fight us, Imperial Stormtroopers, on how we really deal with those who defy the Galactic Empire and its Emperor. We, the 501st legion, were glad when Lord Vader instructed the 501st to eliminate the rogue Fett clones on Kamino. We were glad to have the opportunity to fight an enemy of our stature! This is going to be a lot of fun, I said to my fellow comrades of the 501st, as we approached Kamino, to rid the rebellious Fett clones for good. Our commanding superior is also a Fett clone, who had been born on Kamino also. From what I've heard, he's said to be one of the unaltered ones, and is currently a bounty hunter called Boba Fett." —unidentified Imperial Stormtrooper of the 501st legion

After the rise of Darth Sidious and the Galactic Empire the Kaminoans, like all other alien species who were oppressed (due to the Emperor Palpatine's bias against non-humans), were also oppressed and possibly enslaved to the Empire. When word got out to the Kaminoans that an uprising rebellion known as the "Alliance to Restore the Republic or Rebel Alliance", was quickly forming up, a few Kaminoans soon saw a chance at freedom, and a few rogue Kaminoan clonemasters all secretly banded together and started the cloning of a new clone army of Republic Clone Troopers to aid and help the Rebel Alliance. A full 10 years after the end of the Clone Wars, Darth Vader uncovered the plot of the rogue Kaminoans, trying to breed a clone army of Fett clones, to take up arms against the Empire. The plot had already been uncovered, and the rogue Kaminoans prepared to fight the 501st legion, who were on their way to Kamino, to do battle with the rogue "Anti Imperial Rogue Clone Troopers", thus starting the Rebellion of Kamino. Vader sent Boba Fett, because of his knowledge and expertise of the planet he was "born" on. This conflict caused the Fett clone anti troops to turn against their Fett clone brethren, the imperial Stormtroopers. Boba Fett and the 501st legion attacked and stormed Kamino, seizing and securing the planet's cloning technology for the Empire, and eliminating all the rogue Kaminoan clonemasters and their Anti clone troops. This battle is playable on Star Wars Battlefront II. Boba Fett is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. ...

Those Kaminoans who remained alive were oppressed and enslaved by and to the Empire. They were forced to help "Imperial Specialists",create more clones from a variety of different clone templates to serve as Stormtroopers for the Galactic Empire. Amongst the enslaved Kaminoans was Taun We, who survived the aftermath of the Kamino rebellion. Before leaving Kamino, Boba Fett confronted Taun We, and he apologized to her for his actions here on Kamino. The lone Mandalorian told the Kaminoan that he held no ill-will against her, and that this was only a hired job from the Empire. The two acknowledged one another and then parted ways. In the Star Wars movie series, Taun We is a tall, slender Kaminoan who babysits Boba Fett in the second episode. ...


New Republic

"At last, the Kaminoan race is free from the evil clutches of the Galactic Empire." —unidentified Kaminoan

After the Galactic Empire was overthrown by the Rebel Alliance, the enslaved Kaminoans were excited to see that 20 long years of labor and slavery to cruel Galactic Empire had finally been abolished thanks to the Rebel Alliance. However, the Alliance began destroying all the cloning centers which the Empire had conducted their experiments, all across the galaxy. The Alliance also informed the Kaminoans that their own cloning technologies also be destroyed, to prevent foreign enemy forces, from using their technology, to breed entire clone armies, which would be used to conqueror and destroy. The Kaminoans countinued to live peacefully on Kamino, where they became a member of the protected planets, in the New Republic's planetary protective act treaty. Years later, Taun We would hire Boba Fett to eliminate the Mandolorian warrior, who attacked Kamino during the Clone Wars.
