when the kaminoans mentioned the clones had been ordered by jedi master syfo-dias, i immediatly thought sidious. was lucas planning that sidious erased the files, and was once known as sifo-dyas. i do think thats it. so why are the names so similar??? Sifo-Dyas discussion being the pinnacle of redundancy, I'm gonna redirect this [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=6897146]here[/link]. Read through and you will find two years' worth of discussion on all things SD.
