UPDATE 5/4/2021: The Bad Batch now has a confirmed rating of TV-PG. According to the IMDb parental guide for The Clone Wars, there were mild sexual innuendoes, moderate violence including body disintegration, electrocution, and veiled decapitation in the series.
Even though Omega’s a clone born on Kamino like the rest of the clone army, it’s explained that she’s the result of a genetic mutation even more extreme than the ones displayed by the members of the Bad Batch. For one thing, she’s a girl while the rest of the clones are all male.
Omega, the first female clone of Jango Fett, is introduced in Star Wars: The Bad Batch – but there may be more to this unique clone than it seems. Warning: Contains SPOILERS for Star Wars: The Bad Batch episode 1, “Aftermath.”
Omega is the Phase 3 Clone Trooper and What it Means – The Bad Batch Theory
Were there any female clone troopers?
yes, female clones exist in Star Wars. There are no known examples that I can think of in canon but logically they exist, in Legends we have examples. None were soldiers in the Clone armies though. No clone trooper could have been female unless some weirdo Kaminoan engineered one that way.
She was hired to protect Omega from nefarious forces and can’t help but admire how Omega has learned from and overcome these various threats. It is possible that this fondness and protectiveness could extend to another young clone with Jango Fett’s unaltered genetic material — Boba Fett.
Captain Rex, CT-7567, leads Torrent Company of the 501st Legion, often under the command of Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and Jedi Commander Ahsoka Tano. He first appears in The Clone Wars film and its related television series, and he is the primary clone trooper character of the series.
The Star Wars franchise is also known for emphasizing strength in more than a literal sense. Omega never received clone trooper training or conditioning, but she is as tenacious, intrepid, and clever as her free-willed clone brothers, compensating for her limited physical strength in The Bad Batch season 1.
In the ninth episode of The Bad Batch, “Bounty Lost”, Omega was revealed to be a direct replica of Jango Fett, at least in terms of genetics. Only one other clone has this same link — the bounty hunter, Boba Fett.
Like Boba Fett, Omega does not appear to age at an accelerated rate as other Kamino-born clones do. So even though Hunter and the rest of her brothers are technically older because they age faster, at the time of The Bad Batch, she has been alive longer in standard years.
Now her character, Fennec, has no stated age. She could actually be older than Boba Fett or just be yet another Star Wars actor playing a character much younger than they are. Fennec is likely at least 20 in TBB. BoBF takes place 28 years later, in 9 ABY so Fennec is at least 48 and possibly up to 53ish or older.
Created in the private laboratory of Kaminoan scientist Nala Se on the extragalactic planet Kamino in the star system of the same name, Omega was an unmodified clone with enhances created from the genetic template of the Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett.
Why is Omega so important to the Kaminoans? She’s the sole living source of the Fett genetic material, a resource that’s dwindling. They don’t know where Boba himself is, so Omega is their key. Boba, we can officially (and canonically) say, is the Alpha to Omega.
Some works introduce a rigid caste system, where Alphas are depicted as the upper class elites while Omegas are at the bottom tier and face discrimination and oppression because of their physiology, creating an example of biological determinism.
The alpha is the individual with the highest rank, who is usually the first to eat and the first to mate. Its subordinates correspondingly fall into four other categories, described in descending order of importance as beta, gamma, delta and omega.
A life debt, in addition to their first successful mission together, Boba’s exceedingly rare promise of loyalty, and the fact that she truly has nowhere else to go, is why Fennec Shand ultimately chooses to stay.
During one campfire meal, Boba spies on the horizon what we know to be the charge shots that the Mandalorian and Toro Calican had fired into the sky, to blind and (eventually) get the drop on Fennec Shand — after which Toro, left alone with the would-be assassin, fatally-ish shot her.
