Rookies

The Clone WarsManning an isolated outpost, a group of rookie clones await inspection by Commander Cody and Captain Rex. Following an apparent meteor shower, they find themselves under attack by a force of Commando Droids. The Separatist plan is to keep the outpost transmitting the all clear while a small invasion force takes out the Clone homeworld of Kamino.

LogBook entry by Philip R. Frey

Notes:This episode is production number 14.

Jedi Fortune Cookie: “The best confidence builder is experience.”

It is the first episode to focus primarily on the activites of a group of clones without support by a Jedi.

The episode marks the first appearance of the “Commando Droids”, a more versatile version of the Battle Droid, capable of impersonation and apparently a higher level of individual thought.

Justin Ridge also serves as a storyboard artist for the series. His previous work includes character designs for Fatherhood and storyboard, assistant direction and writing for Avatar: The Last Airbender.
