Star Wars Infinites: Father and Son of the Suns timeline (part 2)


BBY 19-18 (continued): Bail Organa’s first act of office is to strip the Chancellorship of its “Supreme” title, and rename the Grand Army of the Republic to its pre-New Sith War titles. He relinquishes the emergency wartime powers, formally declaring the state of emergency “over.” The authority to declare war on behalf of the Republic is given back to the Senate, who subsequently vote to maintain the current wartime status with the Confederacy, which passes.

Republic Intelligence slicers and Jedi investigators uncover a series of orders ingrained within the programming and training regimen of the clone troopers. Order 66 is unveiled only to the Jedi High Council, and even though it only could be activated by Sidious in his capacity as Supreme Chancellor, its very existence unnerves them. This, in addition to the accelerated growth that will inevitably lead to rapid aging and degradation of their abilities over time, prompts the council to petition Chancellor Organa to enlist regular beings into the Republic Army and Navy.

BBY 18: The first in a series of reformations is announced by Masters Windu and Yoda, in that existing Jedi with romantic attachments will no longer be expelled from the Order. They also dispel the ongoing scandal rumors by declaring that the first Jedi the new policy would affect would be Anakin Skywalker. Construction begins within the Temple to accommodate his and additional families.

Luke and Leia, well into their first year of life, are tested for their Force sensitivity. Both are significantly strong with the Force. Conflict with the High Council regarding their status within the Order is resolved by declaration of deference by Master Yoda, as requested by Anakin, Padme, and Master Kenobi. This prompts a discussion into the second proposed reformation into the joint care/guardianship between the natural-born parents of Force-sensitive children and the Jedi Order.

After much deliberation with Master Yoda and Padme, Anakin reveals to Obi-Wan that it was the spirit of Qui-Gon Jinn that spoke to him through the Force during the duel with Darth Sidious. Astonished by this, Obi-Wan is determined to discover how Qui-Gon was able to transcend his death and become one with the Force, embarking upon a spiritual journey that will take him across the galaxy.

Ahsoka Tano returns to the Jedi Order after much contemplation and requests to be readmitted into its fold. She is accepted by Master Yoda, and awarded the title of Jedi Knight. Anakin is the first Jedi in order to recognize and congratulate her.

Raith Sienar, with backing from the Confederacy, establishes Sienar Systems Engineering (now a separate entity from Republic Sienar Systems), with its first prototype/mass production plant in orbit around Raxus Prime. He designs and constructs the first T.I.E fighter prototype, a short-range fighter designed to overwhelm its enemies with sheer numbers.

With the loss of multiple battle droid production plants across Confederate space, Advisor Wilhuff Tarkin implores the Council to augment its dwindling armies with “organics.” Citing the effectiveness of the Republic clone armies, he also promotes creating an elite “stormtrooper corps,” drawn up from mostly human volunteers (and if needed, conscripts), loyal only to the council. Seeing little options left to maintain the current footing of the war, they enact his suggestions by executive decision. Unbeknownst to the Confederate Council, Tarkin and his supporters had begun the process months ago, establishing and training the Corps in secret on scattered worlds across the Outer Rim.

Privy to a good portion of Sidious’ accessible records, Tarkin discovers details regarding the Dark Lord’s previous apprentice, Darth Maul. Knowing that he needs some sort of counterbalance to the abilities demonstrated by the Jedi Knights, Tarkin sends agents across the galaxy to find Maul.

The planet Rothana, and its Rothana Heavy Engineering Yards “falls” to the Confederacy (another ruse manufactured by Tarkin’s “New Order” idealists); within days, existing vessels are repurposed to fill gaps in the strained Confederate fleets. Lira Wessex, a defected warship engineer and daughter of Walex Blissex, reveals the plan for a new-class of star destroyer to Advisor Tarkin: the Imperator-class.

With the lack of progression made regarding the construction of the Ultimate Weapon, Poggle the Lesser fears that Geonosis may fall to the Republic within a matter of months. He implores that Advisor Tarkin find a solution to their construction woes, or be prepared to lose the massive droid foundries to a Republic invasion. Tarkin answers with two suggestions: hire Trandoshan mercenaries to round up and capture the naturally-strong Wookiees of Kashyyyk for extra manpower… and seek the engineering “assistance” of the Mon Calamari. Poggle the Lesser immediately offers bounties for any Wookiees captured and formulates strategic plans regarding Mon Cala.

Mon Cala is attacked by a massive Confederate invasion fleet, numbering in hundreds of capital warships. The Mon Cala Defense Fleet is caught by surprise, losing 75% of its vessels, while the Republic Naval taskforce is hopelessly outnumbered and outgunned. Faced with the threat of orbital bombardment by the Confederate ships, the Mon Cala government, backed by King Lee-Char, surrenders. Captain Ackbar of the Mon Calamari Guard manages to escape with the remaining Mon Calamari vessels, vowing to return and free his homeworld.

So this seems to be a biography detailing altered historical events in the Star Wars Canon. While I appreciate the nod to particulars such as Ahsoka Tano (not my most loved addition to Star Wars lore, but I do enjoy her character as she was fleshed out more) being accepted back into the Jedi Order, there are a few things that kind of go over my head. I'm not the Star Wars geek I used to be so if you can excuse some of my ignorance when it comes to certain details, do not fault yourself for my shortcomings.

Needless to say, everything seems to be grammatically correct. Key plot points are raised on a need to know basis. An interesting branch off for how events transpire, even using people like Tarkin to showcase degradation of the galaxy. Hearing about the new "Stormtroopers" and the like has me curious.

Keep up the good work ^^

So, the CIS starts resembling the Empire more and more. Would love to see Confederate variants of the ISD and TIE Fighter.

What kind of role do the New Order idealists play? Do they eventually intend to turn the CIS (ironically) into a pro-human organisation and betray the long-standing alien members like the Neimoidians? Seeing as Cato Neimoidia may either have fallen or already has, I could see their influence being slowly 'phased' out in favor of Takrin's stuff.

Those two particular ships will be in my commission request line-up in the near-future (the Incom T-65A X-Wing is already posted, and Han Solo's alternate freighter, the Horizon Evader, is in work).

Tarkin and the New Order idealists initially fled the Republic to escape justice, as the Jedi Order and many of the senators that would've made up the Petition of 2,000 would've discovered their motives as Palpatine's supporters. Tarkin himself sees an opportunity to seize control of the Confederacy, and a couple of years before the events of A New Hope, does just that and transforms it into the Galactic Dominion. Cato Neimoidia does indeed fall to the Republic, but partly due to conspiracy on the New Order's behalf.

What's the structure of the Galactic Dominion? Does it have an Emperor, Moff, etc? Or will we see that in a release later?

Also I assume the Horizon Evader will have a more 'Republican' look and less smuggler?

At the very top of the Galactic Dominion is Executor Tarkin, who effectively seized control of the CIS with his supporters. There will be more built upon as I work on this setting, but its structure probably resembles more of the First Order than the Galactic Empire.

As for the Horizon Evader, take a look :)
