|A Clone Apart|
Ryan M. James
A Clone Apart is a Star Wars fan film mini-series made entirely with a Star Wars: Battlefront II mod, using a technique called machinima. The series tells the story of Danson Delta-40, a clone trooper who ends up in the Rebellion era.
Danson Delta-40 is the sole survivor of the latest failed batch of clone soldiers, hurriedly created to provide enough troops so the Galactic Republic can win the war that eats at its very foundations. Unfortunately, Danson isn't exactly your model soldier. He's had no training. He doesn't even know how to fire his rifle, and still they expect him to fight. And he questions the rather … questionable practices of the army founded on the "overwhelm them with many in useless plastic armor" principle. Unacceptable.
Fortunately, Danson's destiny lies elsewhere. When he accidentally steps through a portal in time/space one day, he begins his quest to find a place where he truly belongs … in the underbelly of the events of the original Star Wars trilogy. The lone representative of the world of the prequel trilogy, Danson finds that many of things don't add up, and that he isn't exactly welcome either. From jobs with both the Imperial and Rebel armies to bounty hunting with Boba Fett and other private-sector jobs (such as mining lava on Mustafar), Danson and his few loyal compatriots cast a new glance onto a story so familiar, showing what really happened behind the scenes.
Shot entirely in the Star Wars: Battlefront II engine, Star Wars: A Clone Apart is a web series that promises to give viewers a new look at this classic universe in the tradition of machinima like Red vs Blue.
