Kamino Cloning Facility

Kamino was the planet where the clone troopers were originally created. It was the Republic's base planet in Star Wars: Battlefront and Star Wars: Battlefront II.

In the Star Wars Battlefront seriesEdit

In Star Wars Battlefront, Kamino had seven Command Posts, the Alpha 1, 2, and 3; the Beta 1, 2, and 3; and the Cloning Center. It usually started out with both factions holding one of their own command posts while the other command posts were neutral.


Early HistoryEdit

Around 19,000 BBY, dramatic climate shifts began to melt the extensive glaciers of Kamino. As a result of resourceful adaptation, the Kaminoans survived the Great Flood of their planet's continents. The Kaminoans used cloning to keep themselves sustained.

Jedi OrderEdit

Throughout its history, the location and very existence of Kamino was known to only a handful of beings, becoming known to members of the Galactic Republic as late as 4,500 BBY. In 3,996 BBY, following the devastation of Ossus, a number of artifacts saved from Ossus were hidden in the ruins of Derem City by Jedi Master Qalsneek the Bull. After the Jedi Civil War, Kaminoan kyber darts were being used in the galaxy, but most beings were ignorant of their source. Kamino was able to survive through the worst ages in the galaxy like the worst wars before the Clone Wars.

New TechnologyEdit

In later years, the Kaminoans created saberdarts, similar to the older kyber dart. These deadly weapons were favored by bounty hunter Jango Fett. The Kaminoans created clone miners to work in the mines of Subterrel. While on Subterrel prospecting, Dexter Jettster became familiar with the Kaminoan cloners, and even found a saberdart.

Clone WarsEdit

In 32 BBY, Sifo-Dyas placed an order with the Kaminoans for a Clone Army. Darth Tyranus, at the bidding of Darth Sidious, murdered Sifo-Dyas to keep the creation of this army secret from the Jedi and the Republic. Tyranus then recruited Jango Fett to serve as Prime Clone. Fett agreed on the condition that the Kaminoans create him an unaltered clone, his son Boba Fett. Jango raised Boba on Kamino for the next ten years.

Behind the ScenesEdit

Kamino may be named after multiple variations of different words in different languages. In Spanish, "Camino" (pronounced /ka'mino/) means literally both "I walk" (in present tense) and "Path". In Italian, Camino means "chimney". In Japanese, "Kami-no" means roughly "of the divine" or "of the gods." "Kamino" may have been derived from the English word "amino" ("amine-" as prefix) because of the planet's advanced cloning technology and the connection of this technology to amino acids. In Greek, "Kamino" or "Kamini" means "Furnace", possibly referring to the industrial production of clones.

The buildings of Kamino served as inspiration for University of Texas designs for a Marine Research Facility.

According to the map in The New Essential Chronology, Kamino is located exactly where Obi-Wan Kenobi said that it was. In the film however, he points toward the Unknown Regions, where no known systems are located.

The Essential Atlas, Kamino is shown with some land, instead of being covered totally by water. This is only marsh, however, and not solid ground. Star Wars: Battlefront also show some land masses on Kamino.
