Star Wars: Nar Shaddaa
The Rebel Alliance is a semi-organized, galaxy-wide group of dissidents, renegades, and revolutionaries opposed to the Galactic Empire’s political control over the galaxy. Though they attempt to define themselves as “The Rebellion to Restore the Republic,” their lack of cohesive organization and consistent backing has caused them to be perceived as little more than a cooperative group of terrorists. And even this has proven to be an incomplete threat to the stability of the Empire than many would assume. Their often-claimed “greatest triumph” — the destruction of the Empire’s mobile-arms training platform supposedly responsible for the destruction of Alderaan — is an overambitious one at best, and more likely the result of legendary delusions on the part of the Rebellion’s leadership. Official records can attest that the training platform was destroyed by a slight weapons malfunction.
