In order to ensure the security and continuing stability. The Republic will be reorganized into the FIRST GALACTIC EMPIRE!! For a safe and secure society!
~ Darth Sidious, on the birth of the New Order.


The Galactic Empire, simply referred to as "The Empire", is the main antagonistic faction of the original Star Wars trilogy. It is a powerful and corrupt intergalactic faction that rules the Star Wars galaxy and was originally the Galactic Republic before it was changed into an autocratic dictatorship by Emperor Palpatine. They ruled most of the Galaxy until they were defeated and overthrown by the Rebel Alliance.

Galactic Empire

The First Galactic Empire was founded during the end of the Clone Wars, when Palpatine tricked the galaxy into thinking the Jedi had tried to overthrow him. To ensure "Peace and Security" to the Galaxy, the Republic was reorganized into an oppressive Empire based on tyranny and brutality. Funds were diverted from social programs into a massive military buildup, most notably the Stormtroopers. The Empire was also the creator of the Death Star, which they used to destroy Alderaan.

The Empire was later defeated thanks to the destruction of their second Death Star, and the death of Emperor Palpatine at the hands of Darth Vader.

Palpatine had not planned for succession, and instead planned a last vindictive strike against not only Rebel worlds but the Empire as well for failing to protect him. Called Operation Cinder, worlds such as Naboo and Vardos were targeted for destruction. The Imperial forces carrying out this mission were defeated by the Rebels.

By about a year after Endor, the rebels had established a New Republic to govern the galaxy. The rest of the Imperial forces were defeated by the New Republic after attempting a final stand at the planet Jakku. The Imperials were dealt a decisive blow at Jakku, with the remains of many of their star destroyers crashed in the deserts of that world. A short time after the Battle of Jakku Grand Vizer Mas Amedda signed a peace treaty called the Galactic Concordance with the New Republic that imposed harsh terms on what was left of the Galatic Empire.

After the signing of the concordance many Imperials made hyperspace jumps in to the unknown regions. There Snoke took over their leadership as they reformed the Empire in to the First Order.

Legends

Imperial Remnant

The Remnent and the Republic put their differences aside to save the galaxy

The deaths of Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader, caused the downfall of the Empire, as Palpatine did not plan for succession of rule. Various imperial figures became warlords in an attempt to claim the Empire for themselves, while the rebels grew into the New Republic. By the time the Empire had been restructured, it's economy was weak, and it only ruled a small handful of planets, reducing the Empire to the Imperial Remnant. The Remnant signed a peace treaty with the New Republic ending the Galactic Civil War. The Remnant was not a dictatorship, but a confederacy that did not enlist in xenophobia or slavery as the Galactic Empire historically had. When the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the Galaxy, the Remnant fought alongside with the New Republic and defeated the invaders.

Fel Empire

Fel Empire Troops

For the first time, aliens and women were allowed to fight for the Empire.

When Jagged Fel became the Head of State for the Imperial Remnant, the Remnant began to grow once more. Eventually the Remnant was once again an Empire, but the new Empire was quite sympathetic. Aliens were treated just as humans were treated, funds went to social programs and it's military protected the innocent. It even trained it's own branch of Force sensitives, the Imperial Knights. At the same time, the One Sith lead by Darth Krayt began manipulating events throughout the Galaxy. They sabatouged the oassus recovery project, which would help worlds devastated by the Yuuzhan Vong. The Galactic Alliance blamed the vong and soon the Alliance was in chaos. As the Galactic Alliance threatened the lives of the people of the Fel Empire, the Empire reluctantly declared war on its former ally. The Fel Empire emerged victorious and briefly ruled the Galaxy.

Darth Krayt's Galactic Empire and Empire-in Exhile

Darth Krayt, the usurper of the Imperial throne.

The reign of the Fel Empire was short. Darth Krayt staged a coup against Emperor Roan Fel and crowned himself Emperor. The Fel Empire then became Darth Krayt's Galactic Empire. Emperor Krayt waged a genocidel war against the planet Mon Calamari. This rendered the planet was uninhabitable, and millions of life-forms became extinct. But Roan Fel was not dead and formed the Empire-in-Exile, a rebel faction determined to restore the Glory of the Fel Empire. They were joined by the Alliance Remnent, another rebel faction determined to restore the Galactic Alliance. After a long war, the two factions emerged victorious, but Fel died in the final battle (He fell to the Dark Side and was killed by Antares Draco). In the end, the Empire merged with the Alliance and the Jedi Order to form the Galactic Federation Triumverate, a peaceful government that united every single planet in the galaxy.
