    I wonder what class of starship they are. They kind of look like the Eta Class but more oriented towards speed. They vaguely remind me of the Morningstar class from the Starfighter video game with the three wings.

    Pretty certain it’s a Republic Attack shuttle followed by two Eta-class shuttles.

    Any of these characters showing up in Season 1, you think?
    - Quinlan Vos
    - Barriss Offee
    - Luminara Unduli
    - Grand Inquisitor
    - Darth Vader
    - Boba Fett
    - Cad Bane
    - Maul
    - Ahsoka
    - Bo-Katan
    - Grogu

    I personally think Fett and Cad Bane are the likeliest this season. Maybe Ahsoka.

    As for a complete wild-card guess... Maz Kanata's gotta show up in animation at some point.

    I think they're going to wait until Season Two to bring out the big guns because that's been the pattern so far with Mando and Rebels. They want to get us attached to the Bad Batch before we're distracted by familiar faces. So I think Vader, Maul, Ahsoka, Bo Katan, Maul, Grogu, and probably Cad Bane are out. Boba is the exception because a) We know Fennec Shand is in this, and b) I could see them wanting to connect this with The Book of Boba Fett. Personally, I'd be surprised if we ever got Grogu in this.

    Of the remaining characters, I'd say Quinlan, Luminara, and the Grand Inquisitor are possible. If they ever brought back Bariss, I imagine Ahsoka would be present, so she's probably out for now.

    Thinking about these possibilities gets me excited. I hope this show runs for at least a few seasons. There's so much in this time period to explore.

    That's probably true. On the other hand, I could easily imagine there being a real push to get casual Mandalorian fans interested. We've got Saw, Rex, Fennec and Tarkin showing up, I don't think a Mandalore arc with Bo-Katan (maybe even Gideon) would be a particularly huge stretch.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Luminara showed up @Reepicheep775. Barriss too would be interesting. Especially if we had her encounter Ahsoka again.

    People have been speculating about Barriss showing up and meeting Ahsoka in so many things throughout the years - it'd be nice if they finally made it happen. :p

    I think Barriss is more likely to show up in the Ashoka series.

    You think she's still alive five+ years after Endor?

    I wish this series were an anthology, like TCW, so everyone could get their time to shine, and most of the TCW plotlines could be addressed properly. But judging from the trailers, it seems the series will have a tight narrative, that will focus exclusively on Clone Force 99, like Rebels focused on Ghost Crew. Surely we are likely to get a lot of cameos and such, but it will be through CF99 perspective, and the narrative will focus on them and whatever quest they have with that kid from Kamino.

    I guess anything is possible. I based my thoughts less on the timeline and more on my perception that Dave Filoni seems to have more input on the Ahsoka series rather than Bad Batch. I think that Dave Filoni would want to be the directing and writing figure over whatever story included a reunion between Barriss and Ahsoka.

    I think the Barriss story is probably over before the Ahsoka series.
    While Filoni is showrunning Ahsoka, it's not as if he isn't involved in The Bad Batch. He's still head of Lucasfilm Animation (or whatever it's called these days), is he not?

    That is, if there even is a post- Wrong Jedi Barriss story. It could be that they never intended anything more for her character, and that she was simply executed some time after the TCW arc.

    I don't see why Barris' character needs any more fleshing out. Maybe if she were egged on to do the bombing she could be redeemed. But no, she did that all on her own. She doesn't get a happy ending. Hopefully she's swiss cheesed in her jail cell.

    She was going to kill herself in a story by Filoni but he scrapped it, and only wants to revisit once he has a story for her.

    If the Bad Batch does return to Mandalore I imagine some cameos by clan Saxon.
