The Bad Batch's Michelle Ang Picks Tech As Her Favorite Clone (For Good Reason, Too)

While the titular crew from "Star Wars: The Bad Batch" are largely made up of clones, no two members are quite alike. Introduced in "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," the Clone Force 99 got their chance to shine with their own aforementioned spinoff, which debuted on Disney+ in 2021. The show's first season yielded another victory for the long-running sci-fi franchise, not only remaining one of the most streamed programs upon its release (via Media Play News) but also pleasing fans and critics alike. Much of its praise has centered around the show's cast of nefarious yet lovable characters (via Rotten Tomatoes), and it's easy to see why.

Thanks to the dynamic range of voice actor Dee Bradley Baker, each member of the Bad Batch — from the headstrong Hunter to the icy cold Crosshair — manages to stand out from the crowd of countless other clones in more ways than one. It can be hard to pick a favorite from such a bold range of personalities, but Omega voice actress Michelle Ang put out her opinion that one of the show's lesser-respected members deserves more love.

Ang believes Tech is misunderstood

The current-running second season of "The Bad Batch" soared its way onto Disney+ on January 4, 2023 (via Collider), much to the excitement of long-waiting fans. Not only has Season 2 offered new high-flying adventures in the world of "Star Wars," but it has also given fans a chance to see their favorite Bad Batch members in action again. As to who's the best of the batch, while everyone is sure to have their own opinion, Michelle Ang, who voices the Jango Fett clone Omega, has good reason to believe that Tech (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker) has more going to him than meets the eye.

In an interview with IGN, when Ang is asked who her favorite Bad Batch member is, she responds, "I really love Tech. I think he's misunderstood ... I love how Dee [Bradley Baker] is so clever at creating a limited emotional character that has so much emotion running underneath and ... the way that sort of Tech expresses his disagreement or his ... hidden snarkiness but his heart of gold really gets to shine in Season 2."

Tech's understanding of machines, great intellect, and solid fighting prowess have made him a valuable team member, even if he can get under the skin of his comrades with his constant spewing of trivial facts that no one asked to hear. Yet, his good morals and spirit make him a guy worth loving and easy to root for.
