No gold, no jewels, no funky glass, but Clone Troopers.
They (We) are the best troops of the Galaxy, if full trained.
They (We) have the best genetic potential thanks to our "father" Jango Fett, but without proper training they (we) are like an uncut diamond.
Today I watched the Episode 5 of the 1st Season of the new animated series The Clone Wars where a bunch of shinies (new, non completely trainer Clone Troopers) man a small outpost on the observation line of the Republic. The line is formed by a large number of such outpost with the mission to establish a perimeter of early warning for incoming Separatist attacks.
Not needing to say, a droid commando tries to seize the outpost to allow a Separatist fleet to approach Kamino unnoticed.
The Episode is simple (as all the episodes of this TV Series) but the wakening op the shinies is great. They discover what for a potential they have.
Also, as far as I know, this Episode mentions by the very fist time the existence of the 501st, the elite legion of the Empire, which started as an Elite Clone Trooper group.
Defend the Republic, join the Empire ;)
