Description: Kamino (pronounced /kə'minoʊ/) was an aquatic planet located in an extragalactic star system that straggled south of the Rishi Maze satellite galaxy and beyond the larger galaxy. It was inhabited by the Kaminoans—a race of tall, elegant beings with long necks who were regarded as a mysterious species that tended to keep to themselves. They were also known for their cloning technology, which was used to create a clone army for the Galactic Republic.

Largely isolated from the larger galaxy, its existence was erased from the Jedi records. Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, who was investigating the attempt to assassinate Padmé Amidala, traced the bounty hunter Jango Fett to the planet, where he discovered the cloning program. With the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Kamino became a prime target for the Separatists and a vital asset for the Republic, resulting in at least two attempts to invade the watery world. During the early days of the Empire, with the cloning program halted, the Empire cleared out the cloning facilities on the planet and destroyed all major facilities on the planet, including the capital of Tipoca City.

Kamino was a remote water planet outside the main galaxy. The world's oceans held an abundance of life. Kamino was renowned for its science and production of clone armies and often contracted with private security forces and other clients. Receiving minimal trade, Kamino's imports were only enough to support the planet's population of one billion. There were many cities scattered across the surface that were built on stilts and many of them were devoted to cloning.

Kamino often experienced heavy rain and during some parts of the year was covered with heavy electrical storms. During this season, Kaminoans rode on aiwhas underwater and resurfaced once they were near their destination.

Early civilization
At some point the planet was not covered in water, and the Kaminoans built a large land-based civilization. However, the water level rose, forcing the Kaminoans to build their structures on stilts.

The Kaminoans were generally isolationists, staying out of contact with the nearby galaxy. This behavior could be traced back to the great flood that changed their homeworld, as they decided it was less risky to adapt their genetic code and planet than to ask for aid from the Galactic Republic.

Years before the Clone Wars, Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas commissioned the Kaminoans to create a clone army for the Galactic Republic, in response to a Force vision that saw the Galaxy descending into a Galactic conflict. However, the Sith secretly took over the project, after arranging Sifo-Dyas' death at the hands of the Pyke Syndicate. The Sith selected the human bounty hunter Jango Fett to serve as the genetic template of the clone army.

Just before the Clone Wars, Kamino was governed by Prime Minister Lama Su. Fett arranged an attempted assassination of Naboo senator Padmé Amidala. However, Fett's fellow bounty hunter, Zam Wesell, who was tasked for the assassination attempt, failed and was killed by Fett before she could reveal any information. Obi-Wan Kenobi went on to investigate assassination attempt, by using the Kaminoan saberdart that shot Wesell. Informed by Dexter Jettster that the dart originated from Kamino (which was missing from the Jedi archives), Kenobi embarked to the planet, where he discovered the production of the clone army supposedly commissioned by the Jedi Order.

Clone Wars
Following the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Kamino was one of the main operational areas of the Galactic Republic. It served as the main training grounds for clone cadets as well as the location for the clone army's creation. To protect the planet and the cloning facilities from a possible Separatist attack, the Republic established a 13-shipped blockade of ten Venator-class Star Destroyers, one Acclamator-class assault ship, and two Arquitens-class light cruisers.

At one point during the Clone Wars, somewhere between 22 and 21 BBY, a Separatist assault led by Asajj Ventress and cyborg General Grievous hit Kamino in an attempt to end clone creation for the Republic. Jedi Generals Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi with the 501st Legion and the 212th Attack Battalion were sent to assist in the planet's defense alongside Jedi General Shaak Ti. The two pronged assault saw Ventress lead Trident-class assault ships beneath the planet's oceans to sneak up on Tipoca City. Many AQ-series battle droids invaded the cloning facilities, killing many clone troopers, including Clone ARC Commanders Colt and Havoc and malformed clone 99. Ventress successfully stole the prime sample of the clone trooper DNA template, but she was attacked by Skywalker, who, with the assistance of a force of clones, reclaimed the DNA. Republic forces managed to defeat the Separatists and cloning continued on the planet.

Another battle of Kamino involved Jedi General Kit Fisto, who fought against Separatist droids deployed in the battle. Late in the war, the Sith's plan to destroy the Jedi using the clones troopers was almost revealed. During the Battle of Ringo Vinda, the clone trooper CT-5385, nicknamed Tup, executed the Jedi Master Tiplar during the confrontation due to a defect in his inhibitor chip. Wanting answers, it was decided that the clone would be sent to Kamino.

The Kaminoan leadership did everything possible to prevent the truth about the chips from being revealed, that they would guarantee the clones' obedience when the order to destroy the Jedi was given. Although Tup died during a procedure carried out without permission to remove the chip by his clone friend Fives and the medical android AZI-3, the threat to the Sith plan did not end while Fives continued to investigate. Fives found that all clones had chips and decided to remove his, and he and the two chips were sent to Coruscant for analysis. Fives was eventually killed on Coruscant and the truth about the chips was kept secret.

Age of the Empire
After the establishment of the Galactic Empire, rumors spread throughout the Imperial ranks that the cloning facilities in Kamino were to be closed down, which concerned the clones. Shortly after its establishment, Imperial Governor and Admiral Wilhuff Tarkin arrived on Kamino to discuss the status of the new Imperial Army with Lama Su. Tarkin informed the Prime Minister that the Empire was reluctant to continuing using clones. He added that the Empire, the successor to the Republic, was no longer bound to contracts signed with the Kaminoans. Upon seeing a group of enhanced clones—Clone Force 99, also known as "the Bad Batch"—cause a disturbance in the mess hall, Tarkin requested they undergo a battle simulation before sending them on a mission to Onderon, claiming they would encounter Separatist insurgents.

On Onderon, the Bad Batch encountered civilians instead of rebels, and the clone commandos—with the exception of team sniper CT-9904 "Crosshair"—chose to disobey their orders. The Bad Batch discovered that Tarkin used a probe droid to observe their mission. Nevertheless, the Bad Batch decided to return to Kamino to rescue the young enhanced clone Omega, who earlier warned against returning to the planet. Upon arrival, they were captured, and Crosshair was taken away to a medical chamber. Learning that the commando's inhibitor chip had, unlike the other members of his squad, responded to Order 66, Tarkin increased its effectiveness to turn Crosshair to the Empire's side. Donning new Imperial gear, Crosshair and a force of shock troopers attempted to stall Omega and the Bad Batch from departing the hangar, only for Nala Se to secretly override the door controls. Evading Crosshair and the other Imperial forces on Kamino, the Bad Batch left for the Suolriep sector.

The Empire slowly dismantled the cloning program as the troops in the Imperial Army were gradually replaced by non-clone recruits. Wary of the Empire with all contracts cancelled, the Kaminoans made arrangements to flee from the Empire, only to be foiled. The Empire had the Prime Minister arrested, with Nala Se, the Chief Scientist, forced to cooperate with the Empire with her scientific knowledge.

Hunter, who was captured by the Empire while extracting a clone Gregor, was brought back to Kamino by Crosshair. The rest of the Bad Batch returned to the planet to extract Hunter. Noticing the absence of troops and the facilities stripped down, the Bad Batch encountered Crosshair and his squad with Hunter in the training chamber. Crosshair offered the Bad Batch to join the Empire, declaring that they were superior to the "regs" and that they would aid the Empire in establishing order as its elite squad. Chaos ensued, as Crosshair shot his squad mates to make his point and Omega activating the battle droids. Vice-Admiral Rampart, who oversaw the evacuation of all remaining clone troopers and essential personnel from Kamino, abandoned Crosshair and received the order from Tarkin to destroy Tipoca City. As the Bad Batch attempted to return to their shuttle, they were caught in the bombardment and fled back inside the falling city. With the help of Omega, Clone Force 99 made their way to Nala Se's secret laboratory and then up to the ocean's surface by stowing themselves in growth jars.

Places of Interest
Tipoca City
Tipoca City was the capital city of the watery planet Kamino, and home to several million Kaminoans. The city was a network of domed structures built atop stilts over 150 kilometers at Kamino's equator. It served as a major military base for the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, and was the location of the Kaminoan cloning facilities that created the army prior to the war.

The city was also the main fighting ground during the Battle of Kamino, which saw the Republic's enemy, the Confederacy of Independent Systems, launch an assault on the city to cripple the Republic's production of clone troopers. At the time of the Clone Wars, Prime Minister Lama Su led Kamino's government from the city. Early on into the Galactic Empire's reign, Kamino's cloning facilities, including those at Tipoca City, were shut down. It was then destroyed by Vice Admiral Rampart under the orders of Governor Wilhuff Tarkin, after all clones were reassigned and essential personnel were evacuated.

The capital city of Kamino, Tipoca City, was a network of stilt structures that held the city above the massive ocean covering the world. The city was distributed over one hundred and fifty kilometers near Kamino's equator. At the core of one of its larger domes, Tipoca City held an immense fusion generator in its heart, powering the city by extracting hydrogen from seawater. The generator was secured by insulator plating. A network of power processing units surrounded the generator, as well as exhaust vents. The central hub contained extensive cloning facilities and offices for members of Kamino's Ruling Council.

Each large dome was designed with a streamlined outer shell used to shed water and wind during storms, with hatches on the sides that could be opened for maintenance or repair. Located near the top of the main dome which housed the fusion generator was a Kaminoan Planetary Defense substation, utilized by Kamino's defense network, and several static discharge towers to secure the city during electrical storms. Several turbolaser turrets were located around the top of the dome as a defense mechanism.

Near the fusion generator were expansive troop barracks, as well as the Ha Zurh Library and Records Office, containing the city's records and a swath of information. The library was maintained by a droid librarian. At the bottom of all of the domes are support pylons which hold up the cities and supply seawater to the fusion generator and to desalination plants where salt was removed from seawater and the water was distilled and purified. At one such plant was a storage tank filled with untreated water, compressor units and tanks used for condensation or evaporation. At the tops of other domes were communications towers designed to warn Kamino Space Control of incoming spacecraft. Outside of the domes were extensive training grounds and rainwater collection ducts. Every room in the city was fitted with emergency access hatches in case they were to flood.

Domestic apartments located inside the city were sparsely furnished, occasionally designed with furniture designed to descend from the ceiling on stalks, connecting to electromagnetic floor markings.

The Tipoca City Military Complex was the largest portion of Tipoca City's structure, containing the Central Armory, a DNA room, the Egg Lab, an embryo room, and the Genetic Records Hall. All of these rooms contributed to the cloning facilities that Tipoca City was prized for. Weather vanes hung off the bottom of a part of the facility, designed to monitor outside conditions to provide storm warnings, or adjustments to atmosphere systems within the buildings. The facility also contained combat rooms and quarters for the clones during any stage of their training. The Military Complex also had many training rooms. One such room was the Citadel Challenge, used to train clone cadets to become clone troopers and potentially Advanced Recon Commandos.

At some point, the entire planet of Kamino was flooded, forcing its inhabitants, the Kaminoans, to seek higher ground and eventually build entire cities on stilts using off-world materials. Kaminoans also developed intricate cloning technology to become the the galaxy's foremost expert cloners. Tipoca City became the capital and largest producer of clones.

Fall of the Republic
Approximately one decade prior to the First Battle of Geonosis, Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas secretly contacted Kamino and commissioned a clone army to be bred for the Galactic Republic, in the guise of a request from the Galactic Senate. This happened due to Sifo-Dyas' premonition that a great conflict was going to start in the near future. In secret, the fallen Jedi Count Dooku, under his given Sith name Tyranus, hired the Mandalorian Jango Fett on one of the moons of Bogden as the clone template for the Kaminoans to use.

Fett would spend most of his time living in Tipoca City with his cloned son, Boba Fett, in their apartment located in the military complex. Fett also taught his "son" how to fish on one of the outside platforms in the city.

The arrival of Obi-Wan Kenobi
Over ten years later, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi traveled to Kamino in search of the individual who killed the bounty hunter Zam Wesell, and the believed mastermind behind the plot to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala. Kenobi's friend, the Besalisk chef Dexter Jettster, had identified a poisonous saberdart of Kaminoan origin which led Kenobi to find the world.

Kenobi was greeted by Taun We, who remained oblivious to his confusion at being expected, and brought to Prime Minister Lama Su. Kenobi was told to inform Master Sifo-Dyas that the clone army he requested was in full production, however Sifo-Dyas had been dead for almost a decade. After a brief tour of the complex and witnessing the 200,000 battle-ready units marching in formation, Taun We took Kenobi to Jango Fett, the bounty hunter responsible for the assassination plot, and Zam Wesell's killer. Kenobi subtly interrogated Fett, who gave the information that he had been hired by Tyranus, however Tyranus' true identity was unknown.

Jango and Boba attempted to escape Tipoca City, but Kenobi intercepted them and they briefly dueled. The Fetts escaped to Geonosis, with Kenobi having placed a homing beacon on the ship's hull.

An aborted invasion
With the galaxy on the brink of war between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Grand Master Yoda traveled from Coruscant to Kamino, ultimately taking command of the battle-ready clone units in Tipoca City, many of them going on to participate in the first engagment of what would become known as the Clone Wars. During the early days of the Clone Wars, the Separatists planned to attack the cloning facilities of Kamino in an effort to hinder the Republic's war effort. However, the attack was thwarted by the efforts of several novice clones, including CT-1409 "Echo" and CT-5555 "Fives," who were serving in an outpost on the Rishi Moon. At some point prior to this, Jedi Master and High Council member Shaak Ti was appointed to oversee the training of cadets before they could become full-fledged troopers, assisted by contracted bounty hunters Bric and El-Les. Ti's care for the clones as living beings clashed with the Kaminoan leadership, who viewed them as property and did not understand the Jedi's spiritual beliefs and compassion. Lama Su also raised the issue of Jango Fett's death during the opening stages of the war, forcing the Kaminoan scientists to stretch his remaining DNA samples and resulting in imperfections or irregularities with certain clones, advising the Jedi to consider finding a new genetic template.

The assault on Tipoca City
Despite the Republic's initial success in protecting the Kaminoan cloning facilities from a direct attack, the Separatists remained committed to shutting down the production of clone troopers in Tipoca City. In 21 BBY, the Battle of Kamino commenced with a space battle between the Confederacy of Independent Systems Navy and the Galactic Republic Navy, commanded respectively by General Grievous and Admiral Wullf Yularen, while Asajj Ventress infiltrated Tipoca City with the support of Trident-class assault ships.

Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Shaak Ti were the leading Jedi in the Republic's defense of Tipoca City. Kenobi discovered Ventress' hidden assault ships, and they attacked the city shortly after, drilling into Tipoca City's domes, allowing battle droids to enter the city. Clone Commander "Colt" was among the earliest casualties, dying at the hands of Ventress who had entered the city. Her objective was to retrieve a sample of clone DNA, while Grievous attacked the clone barracks.

Despite the Separatists' coordinated efforts to overrun the Republic garrison, Tipoca City's defenses held and Ventress was unable to escape with Fett's DNA samples, which the clones recovered while during the assassin's lightsaber duel with Skywalker. Meanwhile, another duel of lightsaber combat took place between Grievous and Kenobi, and Shaak Ti led a group of troopers to defend Tipoca City's main hangar. Skywalker and Kenobi were able to force their opponents to retreat to a flight pod. The final assault ships were destroyed, and the Confederacy retreated from Tipoca City. Though the battle had caused considerable damage to the city, the cloning infrastructure remained intact and Tipoca City would continue to produce and train clones for the remainder of the war.

Secrets on Kamino
During the Battle of Ringo Vinda, CT-5385 "Tup" suffered what appeared to be a mental breakdown and murdered Jedi General Tiplar, which was attributed to a premature activation of Order 66 in the inhibitor chip in Tup's brain. Unable to diagnose Tup's symptoms, clone medic CT-6116 "Kix" advised the Jedi to send Tup to Kamino where he could be examined by the the scientists in Tipoca City, including Doctor Nala Se who designed the clones as Kamino's Chief Medical Scientist. The ARC trooper Fives accompanied Tup on his return to Kamino, and was instructed by Shaak Ti to remain in Tipoca City while the Kaminoans ascertained the cause of Tup's actions at Ringo Vinda.

Fives and Tup were separated while the medical droid AZI-345211896246498721347 operated on Tup. Shaak Ti, still stationed on Kamino, wished to perform an atomic brain scan on Tup. However, Nala Se wanted to terminate and perform an autopsy. Se reported to the Prime Minister, who then both secretly reported to Count Dooku. They discussed the real reason Tup killed Tiplar, which was a premature activation of Clone Protocol 66. Dooku then ordered them to terminate the clone, perform an autopsy and give the inhibitor chip to him.

Meanwhile, Fives convinced AZI-3 that his duty to save a patient overrode all orders, and so they performed an atomic brain scan on Tup, discovering a "tumor" which was in fact the inhibitor chip. Nala Se denounced AZI-3's claim, and referred to the chip as a virus. AZI-3 extracted the chip, Tup woke up, and only a few moments later died after declaring a mission in their dreams to be a nightmare. The chip was then ordered by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine to be sent to the Grand Republic Medical Facility for analysis. However, before this could happen, Fives and AZI-3 switched the sample out with another.

The plot behind Order 66
Fives and AZI-3 continued to sneak around Tipoca City, where AZI-3 made the discovery that the "tumor" in Tup's brain was not in fact a tumor, but rather an implant. Nala Se and Shaak Ti continued their hunt for the fugitives, catching them in the Genetic Records Hall; however, they escaped into a maze of emergency access tunnels. Later, there was a confrontation in the city, where Fives and AZI-3 discovered that all of the clones had the chips implanted in them. Fives revealed to Nala Se and Shaak Ti that he had the chip removed, which AZI-3 backed up by showing them the chip.

Shaak Ti had Fives taken to Coruscant, where he could recount his story to Chancellor Palpatine. Nala Se protested, but Shaak Ti's orders stood. While on Coruscant, Fives attacked the Chancellor, who revealed his involvement in the conspiracy behind the chips, and a planet-wide manhunt for Fives took place, ending in the clone's death. Not long after his death, Order 66 was activated in the clone troopers, which resulted in the almost complete extinction of the Jedi Order.

Rise of the Empire
Following the initial execution of Order 66 against the Jedi, a contingent of clone shock troopers was sent to Kamino. Security was also tightened across the planet as even Republic Military personnel were required to provide clearance codes before gaining entry past Kamino's defense perimeter. Clone Sergeant "Hunter," the commanding officer of Clone Force 99, was surprised to see the Coruscant Guard in Tipoca City. A mandatory assembly was held in Tipoca City's staging area where the clones and their creators gathered to witness the Supreme Chancellor's speech. With the Clone Wars ended through the destruction of Grievous on Utapau, and the Jedi accused of treason and consequently purged from the galaxy, Palpatine declared himself Galactic Emperor. With the exception of Clone Force 99, the clones in Tipoca City celebrated the Emperor's announcement of the Republic's reformation as the First Galactic Empire.

Rumors began to spread throughout clone ranks that the Empire would stop cloning new troopers. After extensive experiments with human recruits in secretive Imperial military installations, the Empire decided that the clone army and their creators had served their purpose and terminated all contracts with the Kaminoan government. Lama Su and Nala Se, who had been growing increasingly concerned for the future of Kamino under the Empire, resolved to secretly gather medical personnel and flee the planet to resume operations elsewhere. However, their plot was discovered by Vice Admiral Rampart before it could come to fruition. Nala Se was taken into secure custody as her scientific expertise still held some value to the Empire, whilst Lama Su was detained for treason.

The operation on Kamino continued as planned with the facilities being shut down; the cloning technology fell under the direct control of the Empire, and the remaining active clones were reassigned offworld. In addition, the facility's droids were deactivated and the Kaminoan personnel were forcibly removed or terminated if they resisted. As a result, Tipoca City was largely cleared of all but a few straggling personnel by the time Clone Force 99 arrived to rescue Hunter, who was captured on Daro and brought to the decommissioned facility of Tipoca City in an attempt to lure and trap his remaining brethren. Using knowledge gained from her time as Nala Se's assistant, Omega was able to guide the others to a secret landing platform and tube transport system that connected to a secret research lab and tunnels not on the official schematics, eventually allowing them to rescue Hunter and incapacitate their former teammate CT-9904 "Crosshair," who had remained loyal to the Empire.

However, all remaining Imperial personnel had been withdrawn from the city and Rampart, on the orders of Wilhuff Tarkin, had the city bombarded by a trio of Venator-class Star Destroyers. The intense barrage of turbolaser fire quickly laid waste to the complex, tearing into its dome structures, shattering walkways and platforms and eventually destroying several of the stilts holding it up, causing the burning ruins of Tipoca City to sink into Kamino's raging oceans with Clone Force 99 still trapped within. With Omega's guidance, the group managed to make their way back into the secret research lab and escape, by stowing themselves in growth jars and allowing them to float to the surface. In time, the original clones' fighting ability deteriorated due to their advanced aging process.

The millions of Kaminoans who lived and worked in the city were either affiliated with the cloning industry or the government, as there was no public space within the massive domes. The two professions were closely interlinked, with the government overseeing the cloning space. Homes and recreation were only located in satellite cities nearby Tipoca. Cities like Tipoca were built with materials and construction droids from off-world suppliers. Repair work and construction occurred in a lull between the planet's rainy seasons.

Clone Force 99's barracks
The Bad Batch barracks was a barracks in Tipoca City reserved for Clone Force 99 where they stayed when visiting Kamino. The room was messy and filled with extraneous equipment. According to Echo, the room smelled bad. The group had several bunks for sleeping.

Wrecker kept a tally of successful missions on the wall next to the door, with the tally reaching well over forty by the end of the Clone Wars. After the Bad Batch deserted the Galactic Empire and fled Kamino, CT-9904's Elite Squad took over the room. The room was cleaned out and new gear was placed inside for the group.

Ha Zurh Library and Records Office
The Ha Zurh Library and Records Office was located in Tipoca City, the capital of the waterworld Kamino. Constructed by 22 BBY, it was maintained by a droid librarian. The library and records office, as well as Tipoca City itself, were destroyed by the Galactic Empire around 19 BBY.

Jango Fett's apartment
Jango Fett's apartment was an apartment in Kamino's capital city of Tipoca City. It was owned by the bounty hunter Jango Fett. Fett lived there with his son, Boba Fett, who was actually his clone, until they were forced to flee to Geonosis due to the arrival of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Landing bay one-tac-one
Landing bay one-tac-one was a hangar bay present within the Tipoca City Military Complex on the planet Kamino. After returning from a mission to Kaller, Clone Force 99 used the hangar bay to house their ship, the Havoc Marauder.

Tipoca City Military Complex
The Tipoca City Military Complex was the primary facility that the Kaminoan cloners used for the production and training of the Grand Army of the Republic. It was located within Kamino's capital of Tipoca City.

The Tipoca City Military Complex contained an array of facilities, including the Central Armory, the Genetic Records Hall, the embryo room, the Citadel Challenge training course, the clone DNA room, the Egg Lab, and various barracks and hangars.

Central Armory
The Central Armory was an armory on Kamino.

Clone DNA room
The clone DNA room was a chamber in Tipoca City Military Complex where DNA samples of Jango Fett used in cloning the Grand Army of the Republic were stored. During the Battle of Kamino, Asajj Ventress was sent to the room to steal a sample of the clone template, but was thwarted by Anakin Skywalker.

Egg Lab
The Egg Lab was part of the cloning facility of Tipoca City, Kamino. In that chamber, clone embryos were mass-produced. All of the Galactic Republic's clone troopers, who fought in the Clone Wars against the Confederacy of Independent Systems, were grown there.

Tipoca City embryo room
An embryo room was located in the Tipoca City Military Complex, a Galactic Republic military complex located in Tipoca City, the capital city of the planet Kamino. It held the embryos of the clone troopers, and where the Jedi Order became aware of inhibitor chips which had been placed into the brains of the clones at birth to supposedly inhibit aggression.

Genetic Records Hall
The Genetic Records Hall was a room within the Tipoca City Military Complex, a military complex operated by the Galactic Republic on the planet Kamino's capital city Tipoca City. The hall contained data on the original DNA of every clone which was cloned by the Kaminoans. In the late stages of the Clone Wars, the droid AZI-3 and the clone CT-5555 traveled to the room in order to gain more information on the so-called tumor which was found in CT-5385's brain. There, AZI-3 and Fives discovered that it was not present in the genotype of Jango Fett, which meant it was implanted.

Tipoca City cafeteria
A cafeteria was present within the Tipoca City Military Complex where clones would eat food.

Tipoca City Training Facility
The Tipoca City Training Facility, also known as the Kamino training room, was a location within the Tipoca City Military Complex on the planet Kamino that was used by the Kaminoan cloners to train clone troopers. Shortly after the rise of the Galactic Empire, Admiral Wilhuff Tarkin utilized the training facility to test Clone Force 99.

Base 1468
Base 1468 was a research outpost on Kamino during the Clone Wars. It was attacked during the Battle of Kamino by the Confederacy of Independent Systems with the clone troopers of the Galactic Republic fighting in its defense.

Nala Se's private lab
Nala Se's private lab was a secret research laboratory used by Kaminoan Chief Medical Scientist Nala Se before and during the Clone Wars. Situated beneath Tipoca City, the laboratory's existence was known to only a few, and it had a private entrance to Kamino's tube system. Nala Se created the unaltered clone Omega in the lab, as well as enhancing the genetic mutations of the original members of Clone Force 99 there. Early in the Imperial Era, Omega, Tech, Echo and Wrecker used the lab as a backdoor entrance to Tipoca City while trying to rescue the "Bad Batch's" leader, Hunter. The Batch later retreated to the lab after the Empire destroyed Tipoca City, using the lab's medical tubes as makeshift capsules to reach the surface of the ocean.

Nala Se's private lab was located deep underwater, connected to the lower levels of Tipoca City, the capital of Kamino, a planet extragalactic of the galaxy proper. An isolated structure on the ocean floor, the lab was equipped with medical tubes and multiple computers. computers. It could be accessed by taking a private entrance to the tube system from a secret landing platform outside the city proper, as well as from within the city itself.

The private research lab used by Kaminoan Chief Medical Scientist Nala Se was in use during her creation of the clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic, with only a few people aware of its existence. She created the unique unaltered female clone Omega in the lab, one of only two clones created who lacked the age acceleration of the standard clone troopers. Later, Nala Se enhanced the genetic mutations of four clones who were designated as Experimental Unit 99 in the lab, which was witnessed by Omega. The four clones only stayed in the lab a short time before they were sent back to be with the rest of the clones.

In 19 BBY, Kamino was taken over by the newly-established Galactic Empire. As part of an Imperial operation to strip Kamino of all useful personnel, clones, and technology, Nala Se was taken into custody on the orders of Vice Admiral Rampart after she was discovered to have been gathering medical personnel in an attempt to flee the planet. Afterwards, as newly-introduced recruited TK troopers began rounding up medical personnel onto transports, killing any who resisted, and deactivating droids, the medical droid AZI-345211896246498721347 managed to escape, hiding in Nala Se's lab, which was by that time empty and devoid of experiments.

Later, several clones from Unit 99 — original members Tech and Wrecker, as well as later recruit Echo — entered Tipoca City via the lab's secret entrance at Omega's suggestion, hoping to rescue squad leader Hunter from the Empire. Arriving via the tube system, Wrecker commented that the lab looked just like every other Kaminoan lab he had ever seen. Omega explained that she had been created there, and that was also where the so-called "Bad Batch" had begun. When Wrecker asked if that was true, Tech pointedly inquired how he was supposed to know that. Omega reminisced that the squad's mutations had been enhanced there before they were sent back to be with the others, but the conversation was interrupted when Echo discovered that Tipoca City's computers had been wiped. As the Batch was discussing why this had happened, the group was startled by AZI-3, who filled them in on the recent goings-on. Tech then detected Hunter's comlink pinging from the central cloning platform, and Omega led the way out of the lab with AZI-3 as they headed to the upper city.

During a confrontation in the city, the Batch rescued Hunter and captured their former member Crosshair, who had remained with the Empire. However, the Empire began to destroy Tipoca City with the clones still trapped inside. The section of the city they were trapped in sank and landed on top of a mostly-intact tube leading back to the lab, so at Omega's suggestion they cut their way into the tube and used it as an exit. Near the entrance to the lab, a predatory sea creature attempted to attack the group, but AZI-3 was able to use the last of the facility's power to drive it off before they entered the lab. Once there, Hunter asked what the facility was, and Tech told him and Crosshair what Omega had earlier said about the facility's purpose and their past there. Omega discovered, however, that the tube leading from the lab back to the landing platform had been broken, leaving them stranded.

Secret landing platform
A secret landing platform was located just outside of the main structures of Tipoca City on Kamino. Normally hidden underneath the planetary ocean, the platform was activated by bringing a starship down almost to the water's surface at the correct coordinates, upon which the platform would appear. The platform was connected to Kamino's secret tube system, which allowed transit to locations such as Nala Se's private lab. Early in the Imperial Era, Clone Force 99 was directed to use the platform by Omega when they sought to rescue their leader, Hunter, from the Galactic Empire.
