Re: What functions do the Storm Trooper armor serve?
that was the main background plot to the Republic Commando series and IC: 501st. the commandos' training sergeant, Kal Skirata (a Mando bounty hunter brought in by Jango to aid in training the clones) tries to find out how to extend clone lifetmes.
unfortunately, the author fell out with the publishers and Lucas Licensing over development of the Mandos in the Clone Wars toon and quit. i believe there were other issues involved as well.
I believe it was Karen Traviss throwing a pissy fit because the Clone Wars toon contradicted her fangirl image of Fett & the clones
No, you clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot and you think that of me? No. I am the one who knocks!
