Dark Trooper - Phase 0 by Theo-Kyp-Serenno Dark Trooper - Phase 0 by Theo-Kyp-Serenno
I made this during my early years in college believe it or not, looking threw my files saved on a cd and find it, I improved it a little making it look more like a Dark Trooper seen in Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II and the newest Battlefront games.


Not a lot of people know the origin or even the history of Dark Troopers of the Empire, I'm going to give you some info on them here about them.

There are 4 phases of Dark Troopers but i'm only going to talk about one of them:

Phase 0 = The Phase Zero Dark Troopers were created in the early years of the Empire to deal with a shortage of experienced troops. The program was overseen by then Lieutenant Rom Mohc of the Galactic Empire and was based on the Empirical, a hidden space station in the Dominus system.

To return aged veterans of the Clone Wars to peak condition, their limbs and organs were removed and replaced with cybernetics using much of the same technology used to transform Darth Vader into a cyborg. In some cases, over 70% of a clone's body was replaced. With their years of combat experience and cybernetic enhancements, the units that did make it onto the field were undeniably effective. At the height of the project the Dark Troopers were split into specialized classes including the Dark trooper commander and the Elite dark trooper.

However, as the subjects were forcibly recruited into the project, many Phase Zero Dark Troopers could not cope with the state of being more machine than man and attempted suicide. The project was eventually shut down as the Empire grew in power and the recruitment rate of non-clones rose. Although the project was shut down, it eventually succeeded by the Dark Trooper Project also headed by Rom Mohc.

thats cool!
I just 'grew up' with the whole Kyle Katarn/Dark Forces thing I guess, I was a teenager in the 90's and played the original game and then the original Jedi Knight over and over and over (played JK online over a dialup modem lol) Back then before Episode one when we didn't actually know anything about the Clone Wars other than that Princess Leia said in her message that Obi Wan Kenobi fought with her father in them. So for the Dark Troopers there was just phase 1 - a killer droid which had a blade and shield and was used to destroy the Tak base on Talay and then the phase 2 which looked like a massive Stormtrooper with flight capability and awesome weapons like the plasma cannon/rocket launcher combo. Then the 3rd phase which was massive and was essentially a mecha that was controlled by a pilot - by Rom Mohc in the end of the game. The 'phase zero' works well, giving the whole clone wars/prequel backstory retcon in this case. It's an EU thing, but they've kept it. Would be cool to see it in the Clone Wars show ;)
