he Galactic Civil War is an ongoing a galactic power struggle in which the Alliance to Restore the Republic and Confederate Remenant waged seperate rebellions against the Galactic Empire in an attempt to restore democratic rule to the galaxy. The origins of rebellion could be traced to the Clone Wars, when rebel cells were equipped by the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order to fight against the Confederacy of Independent Systems. After Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, secretly the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, transformed the Republic into the Empire and destroyed the Jedi Order, many rebel cells began fighting against the Empire. A number of these cells eventually joined together and became the Rebel Alliance.
Earth entered the conflict on behalf of the Alliance To Restore The Republic on May 1st 2016 with the forces of NATO and Moscow Pact working together in a mutual yet distrustful cooperation
