The First Sparks
“We stand on the threshold of a new beginning. In order to ensure our security and continuing stability, the Republic will be reorganized into the first Galactic Empire, for a safe and secure society, which I assure you will last for ten thousand years. An Empire that will continue to be ruled by this august body and a sovereign ruler chosen for life.”
Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, 16:5:23
The Galactic Republic has fallen. The Jedi are all but extinct. The Sith rule the galaxy and the Empire tightens its grip on star systems. The Dark Times are here.
It’s three years since the Clone Wars ended. Three years since Supreme Chancellor Palpatine declared himself Emperor. Three years since Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith, lead an army against the Jedi Temple and killed everyone.
Three years of increasing Imperial taxes, increasing Imperial restrictions and increasing Imperial harassment. Star Destroyers now orbit every major planet. Machines suited to a battlefield now patrol cities on planets from the Core to the Outer Rim. They’re there to ensure the peace, people are told.
It is the year 19 and it is about time for the first sparks of rebellion to fall.
