The Kaminoans had an intimate knowledge of genetic engineering and xenobiology, which allowed them to develop the biotoxins used in the kyber dart. These cone-shaped weapons could kill with lethal efficiency. The bounty hunter Mira, known to operate on Nar Shaddaa following the Jedi Civil War, carried an arsenal of kyber darts, fired from a wrist-mounted dart launcher.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Kamino saberdart seen in Attack of the Clones was known as a "Kamino kyberdart" in the film's shooting script. The prefix "kyber" has its roots in an unused concept created for A New Hope: the kyber crystal, which eventually became the Kaiburr crystal seen in Splinter of the Mind's Eye.
