New Republic Faction Symbol

New Republic / Galactic Alliance


The New Republic was the name of the galactic government established by the Alliance to Restore the Republic to replace the Galactic Empire after the Battle of Endor. Like its predecessor, it was often simply referred to as the Republic; less often, it was referred to as the New Galactic Republic or the Second Galactic Republic.

History

"The New Republic? Are you blind? There is no New Republic! It died before the Yuuzhan Vong came!"
Leia Organa Solo, 27 ABY

The End of the New Republic

In 23 ABY Borsk Fey'lya was elected Chief of State with a three-fifths majority. Many other long term members of the Senate resigned as well as military leaders like Admiral Gial Ackbar and Hiram Drayson.
The lack of representatives of high principle led to the New Republic falling into the same state of disarray and endless discussions that was the Old Republic's downfall.
In 27 ABY, two bloody years into the Yuuzhan Vong War, the New Republic ended with the Fall of Coruscant and the selfless sacrifice of Chief of State Borsk Fey'lya.

Rebirth

In 28 ABY, the remnants of the former New Republic Senate reconvened on Dac and finally elected Cal Omas as Chief of State. After the Battle of Ebaq, he decided to accept the end of the New Republic and reorganised its remnants into the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances. A new constitution, federal structure as well as tireless diplomatic work of former Chief of State Leia Organa Solo and her husband Captain Han Solo for the first time in years banded together the galaxy against their common, merciless enemy.

Yuuzhan Vong Faction Symbol

Yuuzhan Vong Empire


The Yuuzhan Vong - "Children of Yun-Yuuzhan", also called the Chosen Race, known to the Chiss and Ferroans as the Far Outsiders, and sometimes incorrectly abbreviated to Vong - were a sentient species that destroyed the New Republic, and were responsible for the deaths of nearly 365 trillion sentient beings during their invasion of the galaxy.

History

"For all the evil the enemy do, they aren't dark, exactly—the enemy are entirely outside the Force."
Jacen Solo

The Yuuzhan Vong are refugees from a distant galaxy. Their original homeworld the living planet Yuuzhan'tar ("Crèche of the gods") was destroyed thousands of standard years before they invaded the galaxy. After living as Force-sensitive symbiotes with their homeworld they were caught in the midst of a galaxy spanning conflict between two droid civilizations. This traumatic event was the root cause that turned the Yuuzhan Vong into the warmongering and brutal conquerors they are now. Their gods showed them a way to defend themselves from the opposing thread, but the power corrupted the Yuuzhan Vong, slowly turning them into conquerors and fanatics set out to cleanse their galaxy from all mechanical abominations and inferior species. Bloody wars later - with no enemies left the Yuuzhan Vong turned against each other and destroyed their own galaxy, including their homeworld. The subsequent shock shut the whole species off the Force and sent them on the run, eternally searching for the last seed of Yuuzhan'tar, their new, promised home.

For hundreds of generations the Yuuzhan Vong had been travelling through dark space, their worldships slowly dying, always in search of their promised land. It was then when Shimrra Jamaane decided to overthrow the former leaders of the Yuuzhan Vong Fleet in a desperate attempt to save what was left of his people. In order to save his people, he decided to make the galaxy some scouts had been reporting on their new home - no matter the cost...
And only a few years later a small scientific installation on the edge of the known galaxy should be witness of the Yuuzhan Vong's arrival over Helska IV.

But do not forget about the reports that describe god-like beings shaping the reality with their minds, the deadliest of all insults against the gods.

Make your enemies shiver and kneel down in the dirt before your feet, demonstrate no mercy when you poison their planets or destroy move the planets themselves in order to destroy them.
Send your agents all across the galaxy to seed mistrust and break apart the few forces still opposing you.
