Star Wars: The Bad Batch: The Story So Far
The events of the show began in the backdrop of Order 66, when a rift emerged amongst the Clone Force 99, which included Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Crosshair, and Echo. While Crosshair was ready to execute the Jedi Order and their allies as per the directive, the other four members opposed the move.
Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, and Echo then left Crosshair and fled their home Kamino, with a new female clone named Omega. The first season focused on the four mentoring Omega and escaping attacks and threats by Crosshair. However, in the season finale, Crosshair saved Omega’s life from a deadly incident, which hinted at a reconciliation.
