State of the Galaxy I: The Empire

Hello everyone, I am confederalis, and welcome to the first post in Star Wars Reference’s State of the Galaxy series. Here we will be exploring the state of the Empire, New Republic, First Order, and everything in between during the gap years of Star Wars canon. Today, we start with the Empire. I hope you enjoy!

When Grand Vizier Mas Amedda put pen to paper on the Galactic Concordance, the Galactic Empire of old ceased to exist. After 24 years of tyranny and seven years of war, Emperor Palpatine’s iron grip had faltered, ushering the galaxy into a new era. With the New Republic’s rapid expansion came petty squabbles over politics, reparations, and demilitarization. Former high ranking Imperial officers now had to decide where their allegiances lay. With the fractured Empire being reduced to a rump state, many of these officers formed their own remnants in the Rims, hoping to restore the Empire with themselves on the throne.

However, other facts were surprisingly insightful, including new information and fun facts.

Continuity Corner III: A Day of Peace, A Day of Harmony (Or How The Holiday Special Has Influenced The Star Wars Canon)

Forty years ago today, The Star Wars Holiday Special aired on televisions across America for the first and last time. Though perhaps best known for being the debut of fan-favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett in it’s lauded animated segment, The Story of the Faithful Wookiee (animated by Nelvana, who would later go on to produce the Droids and Ewoks animated series from the late 80s), the infamous special has left a lasting impact on the Star Wars canon in other ways.

Doctor Death – The Story of Cornelius Evazan

Spoiler warning for the latest issue of the Doctor Aphra comic. Given recent events, we thought it would be interesting to do a summary of everything we know about the life of Dr. Evazan in canon, a character who dates back to the very first draft of A New Hope. So without further ado, presenting the life of Cornelius Evazan so far.

Hello everyone and welcome to another continuity post! Today we are tackling Pablo Hidalgo’s Scum and Villainy: Case Files on the Galaxy’s Most Wanted.
