Rwa2play: HMS_Blinkin: It's pretty well established in the expanded universe (even if Disney made it all non-canon) that the Empire wasn't 100% wiped out at Endor. Which, as other Farkers have pointed out, is frankly quite logical. I suspect that the Imperials of the new movie will be fighting for the Imperial Remnant, with the "good guys" being the New Republic or something like that. They may change the names a bit to differentiate from the EU books, but the gist will be similar.I would think so. A New Republic was established but even then there are still remnants of the Empire still exist mostly on the outlying star systems.
some_beer_drinker: they still wont hit anything.
HMS_Blinkin: Ghost Roach: Could be that the plan were legitimately stolen, but some higher up (Tarkin?) saw the potential in the situation. or if you really want to go all "Truther" then yes, the plans getting stolen was part of the plan for showing how dominant the new battle station was."So you see, citizens of the Empire, even when they had the technical plans to the station, they could not destroy it, and fell to it's overwhelming firepower. There will be no more talk of rebellion"They just forgot to pay for the exhaust port shieldingI mean...maybe. But this is Star Wars we're talking about here---it's not a franchise known for its subtlety. What you see is usually what you get, which is why I favor the Occam's Razor approach.
Kyro: HMS_Blinkin: They failed miserably at stopping Han Solo from taking off from Mos Eisley. That was pretty bad work on their part.I'm going to give a pass to a squad of grunts failing to spontaneously capture the most notorious pirate there is.
cretinbob: ragekage: My question is how a rebellion lasts for thirty years, since apparently there was no "New Republic". I get it; the entire Imperial Navy wasn't taken out at Endor, but their best and brightest were.I think that's a valid question, and wouldn't the remnant of the Empire now be the rebels?I'll have to go watch Jedi to get a better sense of the ending
Enlightened Liberal: So will their armor actually provide some protection this time?
toddalmighty: So after 30 years the Empire still exists?
