- The Rebels claim that Alderaan was a peaceful and defenceless
world, but in reality it was quite different.
- The Alderaan Royal Engineers (ARE) were part of a secret
rearmament program that was initiated on Alderaan (by the
Royal House of Alderaan), but they ceased operations since
the Empire stopped them by destroying the planet.
- Viceroy and First Chairman Bail Organa gave up his seat
in the Imperial Senate and returned to Alderaan. From there
he worked hard to convince his people to renounce their
pacifist ways. And before Alderaan could fully prepare its
military might and officially join the Rebellion the planet
- Viceroy and First Chairman Bail Organa, working with Mon
Mothma diverted weapons and funds into the hands of organizations
opposed to the Empire (the early form of the Rebels) after
the Ghorman Incident. More so, Bail Organa supplied highly
classified military data to Rebel leaders, which allowed
them to conduct surprise attacks against Imperial shipping
- Bail Organa made Alderaan a centre for dissent and resistance.

- Alderaan was conducting major sums of secret Rebel activities.
- Sections of the Alderaanian palace were constructed of
mono-molecular plates which allowed so much of the palace
itself to survive the destruction of Alderaan. Underground
portions of the palace were hardened to protect the Royal
Family from attack, and those portions of the palace also
- The Council of Elders were going to give the Rebel Alliance
the Alderaanian War Frigate Another Chance, which
was filled with weapons.
- Alderaan secretly maintained one Alderaanian War Frigate
(Another Chance) and three Thranta-class War
Cruisers (Courage, Valiant and Fidelity) [which
were slave rigged to the Another Chance].
- Alderaan supplied large numbers of troops to the Rebels,
including the training, uniforms, weapons and equipment
for those troops. The uniform of the troops are Alderaanian.
Note that the Rebel Trooper wears the Alderaanian uniform.

this vile gangster, who is constantly finding ways in circumventing
Imperial Law. The Empire was using Ree-Yees to conduct the
assassination of Jabba the Hutt. To allow Ree-Yees to accomplish
the said task, the Empire sent him components for a detonator
in his Gran goatgrass packages so he could assemble the
weapon and eliminate the crime lord.

- The Rebels claim that droids are entities that should
be treated like living beings and that they have rights.
They state in their propaganda pamphlet "A Call to
Reason" that the Empire conducts droid abuse by mistreating,
exiling and destroying droids. They go on to say that Probe
Droids are improperly treated by the Empire. There are scientists
which the Rebels mention in their propaganda pamphlet "A
Call to Reason", which state that Protocol Droids are
capable of full sentience and that regular memory wipes
are a criminal act. The Rebels treat droids like the machines
they are, which is totally against their "A Call to
Reason" propaganda pamphlet.
- The Rebels conduct memory wipes on their droids.
- The Rebels use live droids (R2 Units) in their Droid Rescue
and their Dangerous Droid Rescue sections in their Pilot
Proving Grounds. The details of these sections along with
the rest of the Pilot Proving Grounds are kept secret by
the pilots who fly them. Once the Rebel droid Emkay learned
from its master Ace Azzameen the truth about these two sections
of the Pilot Proving Grounds, the droid was "disturbed"
that the Rebels were doing this. It wanted to write a letter
to the Rebels' Organization for Droid and Machine Abuse
on the Rebel command ship MC80a Independence to request
that practice to be stopped.
- A-C, a modified Rebel protocol droid employed by Rebel
Information Officer Candice Ondi was outfitted with 4.2
kg of plitex nine explosives; should any uniformed Imperial
personnel come into close proximity of the droid, a self-destruct
subroutine would activate causing the droid to detonate
the explosives it carried.
- A Rebel "droid procurement" operative named
Vo Lantes who owns a chain of droid lots, has been known
to modify droids to circumvent their life preservation programming
and to contain detonite explosives. These modified droids
are detonated by remote control to create diversions or
to knock out security systems for Rebel teams on infiltration
or sabotage missions.
- Pilot droids such as the V1 Pilot Droid, which are employed
by the Rebels have been outfitted with self-destruct circuits.
On top of this, these pilot droids are programmed to activate
their cargo ship's auto-destruct should they be unable to
- During the Imperial raid on Asteroid AX-456, the Rebels
forced droids to become moving cover against incoming blaster
fire in an attempt to drive out the Stormtroopers. Ultimately
this tactic failed. It resulted in the deaths of all the
Rebels who used the droids as moving cover and the destruction
of the droids as well.

- The Rebels claim that Imperial personnel who surrender
to them are sent to a neutral pickup point and allowed to
return to their homes, unless they want to defect. Some
of the most prominent Rebels even believe this, for example
Commander Luke Skywalker.
- Imperial Prisoners are placed on Rebel Safeworlds. They
are dropped off on a continent thousands of kilometres from
Rebel settlements. They are then issued enough supplies
and farming equipment to get them through the first year
if they work hard. Living in primitive conditions, they
are periodically visited by heavily armed Rebel medical
ships, beyond that Imperial prisoners are left in solitude.
Escape from such confinement is impossible as there are
no space ships to capture or sophisticated equipment needed
to build a communications device in either the Rebel settlement
or the prisoner colony.
- The Rebels maintain penal colonies on remote planets
to hold captured or surrendered Imperial personnel.

was a mining colony. When the Empire attacked this
major shadowport, contrary to the Rebel claims that
85% of its "inhabitants" (85,000 beings in all) had
safely escaped, hundreds of Rebel ships were destroyed
and thousands of its personnel were killed. This loss
had seriously damaged the Rebellion, contrary to Rebel
claims that the Empire's victory at Vergesso was a

Z-95 Headhunter, Corellian Corvette, (any) Capital
Ship, Lambda-class Shuttle, and Lantillian Short Hauler.
- The Rebels' "Alliance Support Service"
seldomly purchases BR-23 Couriers, as they prefer
to steal them from who ever and where ever they are
- The Rebels seek out and steal large passenger ships
so they can covert them into cargo vessels.
- More so, the Rebels have occasionally intercepted
small passenger liners to "offer" those
onboard an opportunity to defect to the Rebellion,
and to steal Imperial communiqués, or abduct
Imperial officers or agents.
- To move their wretched supplies the Rebels employ
tramp freighters. In many cases the hired captains
do not even know that they are carrying Rebel cargo
or had visited a Rebel operated or Rebel-sympathetic
location or facility. As a consequence of Imperial
inspectors discovering the ill goods of the Rebellion
onboard the tramp freighter, its captain is often
incarcerated or executed for being a Rebel sympathizer.

- The Rebels have used terrorism to convince planets to
join the Rebellion.
- There are Rebels who operate like the Black Sun; using
the same rationale to justify their murders of anyone who
does not support the Rebel Alliance, including civilians.
"There are no neutrals on a planet, they are either
with us or against us" and "No one is innocent".
These ethics were stated by the infamous Rebel, Elscol Loro.
- In a strategically placed farming village located on
the planet of Carnth which was under Imperial control, the
Imperial Prefect told the farmers that the Rebels were nothing
but a group of pirates. And thus the farmers refused to
assist the Rebels when they came knocking on their doors.
Airen Cracken and a group of Rebel Operatives convinced
the farmers to support the Rebel Alliance after a brief
show of force. They accomplished this by modifying their
blasters with beam splitters, which allowed them to emit
wide spread stun-level beams to bring down a number of farmers
without harming them.

- The Rebels claim that they do not associate themselves
with criminals, but the truth is that they do.
- The Rebels ally themselves with pirates and in some cases
they also provide protection for them to further their own
= Some of the many examples are the:
Mugaari Pirates || Pakuuni Pirates || Khuiumin Survivors
- The Rebels regularity make use of privateers by issuing
their Letter of Marque to pirates. Pirates in control of
capital ships and fleets deal with the Rebel High Command,
while local Rebel Commands deal with single, small pirate
vessels. More so, these pirates are forgiven for their past
criminal lives by the Rebels.
- Tormax Ardellian was a Corellian pirate who was involved
in operations to smuggle Rebel agents and equipment to the
planet of Questal.
- Solla Kyler is an undercover Rebel Transport Chief who
hangs around various Outer Rim starports. From these locations,
this Rebel hires smugglers to transport cargo from her acquisition
depots to Rebel drop points and bases.
- Smugglers from many different worlds supply the Rebellion
with arms and supplies, and it is these smugglers the Empire
- Criminal organizations such as the Tenloss Syndicate are
valuable allies to the Rebellion. The benefits of this alliance
has allowed the Rebels use of the Vergesso Asteroids Shadowport.
More so, Tenloss' subordinate company, Galindas Exports
siphons off hundreds of tons of supplies and equipment per
month for the Rebels. This huge sum of material finds its
way to Rebel units across the galaxy by employing Ororo
Transportation and Galindas Exports (both controlled by
Tenloss), by independent spacers and by Rebel transports.
- In the Sisar Run, Black Sun influence allows the Rebels
to obtain ships and supplies that they would normally be
hard-pressed to obtain. The Black Sun also helps relieve
some of the Imperial pressure off of the Rebels. More so,
the Rebel leadership has not disputed the yielded benefits
of their relationship with the Black Sun.
- A Rebel funds "acquirer" named Mister Tisilan
not only generates funds for the Rebels by skimming money
from his own legitimate business, he is also an art thief.
He has stolen art treasures from Imperial officials and
private collectors. These stolen art pieces are either sold
on the black market or handed over to the Rebels who then
distribute them to convince system governments to join the
Rebellion. As a result of his activities, this Rebel operative
generates millions of credits per year for the Rebellion.
- After their major defeat at Gal Milnor, the Rebels with
the assistance of General Calrissian contacted Dunari who
was leading the Smuggler Coalition and held a meeting in
a secluded area of space. The negotiations were successful
and thus the Rebellion entered into an alliance with the
Smuggler Coalition. When the Empire moved to apprehend Dunari
and his associates at Dunari's Casino, the Rebels sent starfighters
to help Dunari and his associates escape and evade Imperial

laws. This is incorrect.
- Imperial anti-slavery laws state that if a species
is not classified as sapient, then forcing them to
work against their will is not slavery, but domestication.
- When news of the deaths of hunting parties on the
planet of Barab I reached the ears of Sector Governor
Paro Lanto, he ordered an investigation into the matter
through powers granted to him under the Dangerous
Species Act. It was discovered that the Planetary
Safaris corporation (which organized the hunting parties)
had deceived the Empire on the true nature of the
Barabel species. As a result of the investigation,
it was discovered that the Barabels were sentient.
And due to this, Sector Governor Lanto ensured that
the planet of Barab I was admitted into the Empire
and its inhabitants were given full protection under

- Some Rebels believe the Rebel claim that the Empire only
has 6 to 7 times the resources of the Rebel Alliance, this
is totally false. Even Rebel droids believe this, namely
Emkay, the droid owned by Ace Azzameen. The Rebels' meager
resources represent an extreme minute fraction of the Galactic
- Just before the Battle of Endor, the Empire destroyed
the Rebel supply centre located on the planet of Gal
Milnor along with the bulk of the Rebel freighter
fleet. This main supply centre stored critical food,
fuel, and munitions for the Rebel Fleet. Its loss
severely reduced Rebel resources, and as a result
the Rebels entered into an 'Alliance-Smuggler' alliance
to obtain the required supplies so that they could
amass their fleet and attack the Death Star II.
- At the height of the Empire, it possessed 5,000
times the warships than the New Republic had in its
possession. The New Republic had only 2,500 operational
warships at the time of the Black Fleet Crisis. This
means the Empire maintains 12.5 million warships.
- To further press the point, the entire Rebel Fleet
barely equals the number of ships the Imperial Navy
sends to the scrap yards annually.
- Roughly 1/3 of the large ship cargo transported
in the galaxy is Imperial war material. The remaining
capacity is filled by private goods. In short, the
Rebellion's annual cargo capacity is not even close
to the Empire's monthly capacity.
- The Empire maintains a gargantuan logistics network
to move its vast resources. This network is inefficient,
unwieldy, wasteful, slow and encourages the stockpiling
of massive quantities of supplies, however it can
easily handle lost supplies due to theft, misfiling
and other incidents. On the other hand, the Rebels
have few stockpiled supplies and must be quick and
thrifty with their logistics, else they would even
more quickly succumb to the Empire's might.
- The Rebellion would bankrupt itself just within
a few days if it obtained its ships legally.

- The Rebels claim in their Declaration of Rebellion and
elsewhere that the Empire, its military and the New Order
stand only for tyranny and oppression of the Galaxy. This
is not true.
- The primary mission of the Imperial Navy is to protect
civilians from the dangers of space. The Empire seeks
to control and assure safe passage of commerce.
- Fleets of lighter ships in the Imperial Navy are
employed to patrol Imperial space, provide search
and rescue services, and generally keep the peace.
- Before the arrival of the Empire, the planet of
Bakura suffered from a chaotic government which remained
in a constant deadlock of disagreement. For example
the planetary government could not even agree on the
school calendar nor curriculum. More so, the arrival
of the Empire ended the threat of civil war on that

“immunity spheres” in which no Imperial
soldiers or ships can set foot in them. “The
Wheel”, a gambling haven located in the Besh
Gorgon System is located in an Imperial immunity sphere;
in return a large percentage of its profits are turned
over to the Imperial Treasury.
- Species such as the Adarians who inhabit the planet
of Adari have maintained their neutrality by signing
a non-aggression treaty with the Empire. And in return,
the Adarians supply the Empire with vast sums of raw
- Even though the Empire maintains a firm military
presence on the planet of Veron (located in the Mektrun
Cluster), the native species, Gazaran have been permitted
to retain their traditional lifestyle and government.
- An elaborate accord between the Empire and the Aramandi
(located in the Aramand Cluster) was achieved. This
agreement benefited both parties. For officially supporting
the Empire, paying a few taxes and allowing a small
Imperial garrison to be stationed on the planet of
Aram along with minimal Imperial Navy forces, the
Empire has left the Aramandi to their own devices.
- Continuing on the efforts of the Old Republic the
Empire has assisted the planet of Riflor, the home
of the Advozsec species in improving building methods
and materials. And as a result millions of lives have
- Many of the Advozsec species have found opportunities
inside Imperial and corporate bureaucracies across
the galaxy. More so, the species tends to support
the Empire due to the order it brings to the galaxy.
- Even though Imperial backed corporations implement
policies which give humans preferential treatment,
the Baragwin species can always find well paying employment
in those corporations.
- Aqualish from the planet of Ando have a history
of aggressiveness towards those not from their homeworld
in addition to their civil wars. Any exploration ships
that visited before the arrival of the Old Republic
were attacked and captured for study. Eventually,
the Aqaulish gained the ability to travel space and
decimated Ando’s sister planet. When an Old
Republic ship visited during the Old Republic’s
period of massive expansion, the Aqualish attacked
without provocation which ignited a brief war. Ando
soon sued for peace and unconditionally surrendered.
Currently, the Empire maintains a watchful eye. Should
signs that the species is reverting back to their
old ways become apparent, the Empire would swiftly
move to restore peace on Ando.
- With the Imperial Navy stepping in to halt the Reslian
Purge that was being conducted by the Lortans, the
Tunroth species was saved from total annihilation.
- The Empire ended civil wars where the Old Republic
simply ignored or failed to end them.
= Some of the many examples: The
Sepan Civil War which lasted for generations. In a
five year period leading up to the Clone Wars three
separate missions by the Jedi Knights failed to end
the decades old conflict. || Taroon System Civil War
which lasted for 20 years.
- The Empire sets up Imperial Species Preservation
Zones. These zones are defined as areas where a species
is dying out. With the ISPZ in place all travel to

help the species survive.
= Some of the many examples: the

- Assassin Droids were originally created during the
days of the Old Republic. Originally, they were employed
as a law enforcement tool, keeping the peace and capturing
or killing dangerous criminals. Later versions called
war droids were employed as soldiers in the Outer
Rim frontiers and in the Corporate Sector. Gradually,
the droids began to be misused by warlords, criminal
kingpins and politicians, so in its waning days, the
Old Republic Senate tried to outlaw the droids and
failed. Years later, the Empire would have a greater
success rate (although not a 100 percent success rate)
of outlawing assassin droids.
- In an effort to stem the flow of black market assassin
droids, the Empire seized control of Bansche Tech,
Sencil Corp, Reiber Manufacturing and SGI Systems
which were major droid manufacturers in the Mid-Rim.
These companies were major manufacturers of black
market assassin droid matrixes and mission-specific
components in the entire Mid-Rim region. As a result
of these Imperial seizures those wishing to obtain
assassin droids were forced to go to the CSA or Outer
Rim. It must be noted, that unauthorized ownership
of an assassin droid carries the penalty of death
under Imperial Law.
- Wroonian guilds such as the Armament Distributors
(gun-runners) and Spice Shippers Guilds, both of which
carry out illegal activities were dissolved under
an Imperial edict by the local Imperial Governor.
- The Empire balances submission with privilege. One
advantage of living under Imperial rule is the remarkable
range of educational opportunities that are made available.
Gifted children may even receive the honour of studying
at the Imperial Centre.
- Near-Humans known as Epicanthix submitted to the
Empire's rule shortly after the declaration of the
New Order. As a result, the appointed Imperial Governor
of the Pacanth Reach Star Cluster worked with the
Epicanthix to import beneficial items and to export
valuable commodities (mostly minerals). Furthermore,
a certain degree of autonomy is maintained by the
Epicanthix, which effectively allows them to reign
in conjunction with the Imperial Governor. This arrangement
has allowed these near-humans to expand their wealth
and exploration of other cultures.
- There are thousands of religions within the Empire,
while the Emperor disapproved of many of them, most
were tolerated as long as they remained apolitical.
- The Tallaan shipyards which orbit the planet of
Tallaan (which is near the Core) have been in existence
for the past four millennia. As the shipyard came
under Imperial control, the first Imperial governor
assigned to the base attempted to reduce the number
of alien workers. However, the Guild of Non-Human
Skilled Labourers threatened boycotts and strikes
from 60 percent of the yard's employees. The shipyard
itself was one of the Empire's most productive. To
solve the impasse, the governor came to an agreement
with the guild. As long as the guild's members remained
productive and loyal to the Empire, he would permit
the aliens to remain. Since then there have been no
major incidences precipitated by either side.
- In the Corellian Sector, the Empire enforced the
peace between the sector's three dominant species:
Human, Drall and Selonian by forcing them to live
in harmony. With the higher authority of the Empire
in place the entire sector was prevented from falling

vendettas. Years later, during the Hand of Thrawn

600 year feud between the Clatear and Nhoras, which
five separate generations of Jedi Knights tried and
failed to end the dispute.

business community on the planet of Indu San by loosening
import and export regulations, and as a result Imperial

order brought to their world by the Empire. Furthermore,
the Empire assists in the defence of Gacerite vessels.
All of this had the effect of instilling the values
of the New Order, while preserving many of the freedoms
the people once shared. || The planet of Corulag is

the Rebels ignore in their attempts to gain support for
their terrorist cause.
- After the collapse of the Old Republic, the Empire standardized
communications across the galaxy making a wide variety of
dish and communication antenna arrays unnecessary.
- Republic Credits or Dataries were the common currency
in the domain of the Old Republic. However, even within
the sphere of the Known Galaxy Republic Credits were not
always accepted. With the rise of the Empire that changed.
Imperial Credits were the only universally accepted currency
in the Known Galaxy, since it was supported by the entire
galactic economy, and the Empire was perceived to be exceptionally
stable. Imperial Credits were considered of value almost
anywhere, even outside the sphere of the Empire. They are
issued in a variety of forms, including electronic credit
sticks and cards, stocks, coins, corporate and bank notes,
and credit vouchers. The denominations of the Imperial Credit
were: 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500,
1,000, 2,000 and 5,000. Note that coins of larger denominations
