An exploration of the events from Imperial Year 19 (IY19) to Imperial Year 23 (IY23) must first start from several decades earlier. A galactic civil war, commonly known as the Clone Wars in colloquial parlance, had ravaged the galaxy for four years. The Republic's ineffective bureaucracy had failed to quell the insurgents. In the end, in a stroke of luck, Chancellor Palpatine was able to send his apprentice and most trusted lieutenant, Anakin Skywalker, to assassinate the leaders of the terrorist rebellion, on the planet of Mustafar. However, Skywalker perished in the process, falling to his friend and former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, who had been secretly aiding the insurgents.

The end of the civil war, however, led to a surge of popularity for the Chancellor, and he reluctantly accepted the rank of Emperor of the new Galactic Empire. This marked the first year of the Imperial calendar, and is known as IY1.

The Emperor was a highly competent leader and a wise negotiator, but was nonetheless hindered in several respects. To start with, the insurgency did not die with their leaders on Mustafar. A shadowy group of imperial senators took advantage of the power vacuum, and assumed leadership of the terrorist rebellion. Furthermore, there was widespread political resistance to the rule of the Empire, due to several individual star systems unwisely rejecting the fact that they would benefit from Imperial rule, both economically and militarily.

To resolve these niggling issues, the Emperor adopted a two-pronged strategy. Firstly, he dissolved the Imperial Senate, which meant that the inefficiency of bureaucracy could be replaced by a more streamlined decisioning process, thus greatly accelerating the pace of governance and legislation. Secondly, the Emperor ordered the construction of a space station known as the Peace Moon.

The Peace Moon was a marvel of engineering, as well as proof of what could be accomplished with unity and collaboration. It was the size of a small moon, several hundred kilometers in diameter, and held a small peacekeeping force of infantry and fighter craft. It also housed hundreds of thousands of support and technical personnel. These crew members were classified as non-combatants, which shall become significant.

The Peace Moon was meant to be a symbol of the Empire's technical advancement, as well as the advantages of hegemony. While it could theoretically be used in an offensive manner, its commanding officer, Grand Moff Tarkin, gave repeated statements that he had no intention of using it in such a way. However, the fact that the Peace Moon could be used for attack gave the rebels an opening. In IY19, a prototypical false flag operation, the terrorist rebellion timed their attack for when the Peace Moon was touring near the planet of Alderaan. Using means that have yet to be fully understood, the terrorists detonated the entire planet, and blamed it on the Peace Moon.

It is generally believed that Senator Bail Organa, a known member of the rebellion, was the mastermind behind the attack on Alderaan. The destruction of Alderaan resulted in the loss of over 2 billion lives, the blood of whom can all be found on the hands of Organa and the remainder of the rebellion.

This success galvanized the terrorists, and they soon launched an attack on the Peace Moon itself. A small strike force of rebels infiltrated the Peace Moon on a disguised Corellian freighter (taking advantage of the Imperial policy to never fire on civilian ships), and abducted Princess Leia Organa, a survivor from the destruction of Alderaan, who had been rescued by the passing Peace Moon. The rebels also used advanced cyber-terrorism equipment to hack into the Peace Moon's computers, and stole the schematics of the Peace Moon itself.

However, the terrorists did not accomplish this without losses. Obi-Wan Kenobi, the man who had killed Anakin Skywalker, was arrested by Darth Vader, the Emperor's new right-hand man, during a sabotage attempt. Rather than give up peacefully, Kenobi killed himself with his lightsaber, once again manifesting the Jedi qualities of cowardice and stupidity.

It is unknown what tortures the rebels subjected Princess Leia to after they escaped from the Peace Moon, but in the end she became a willing collaborator, in a textbook case of Stockholm Syndrome (named after Jathon Stockholm, the famed Falleen researcher). However, before she did, in her final act of loyalty to the Empire, Princess Leia transmitted the location of the terrorists' base to the Imperial forces, revealing that they were located on the moon of Yavin 4.

The Peace Moon was immediately deployed to Yavin 4, with strict orders to arrest the leaders of the rebellion and retrieve the Princess. However, spurred by the success of their tactics in abducting the Princess, the terrorists realized that they could reproduce the process. As the Peace Moon approached the planet of Yavin, the terrorist rebellion deployed small one-manned spacecraft in a series of suicide attacks. The Empire's brave defenders, including turret gunners and TIE fighter squadrons (led by Darth Vader himself), managed to intercept and destroy most of the kamikaze pilots (named after Mithk'amikazee'rul, the Chiss general). However, one pilot managed to get through and crash his X-Wing into an exhaust port on he surface of the Peace Moon. The resulting chain reaction led to an overload in the Peace Moon's power core, detonating the entire space station.

The significance of this terrorist act must be taken into context. The Peace Moon, like Alderaan, was not an aggressive entity, which made it a prime target for the terrorists. Unlike their false flag operation on Alderaan, however, this time the terrorists attacked the Peace Moon directly. This was prime evidence that the terrorists cared nothing about civilian casualties (such as the two billion on Alderaan, and the hundreds of thousands on the Peace Moon), and would resort to any tactic available to kill Imperial citizens. The death of the widely-loved Grand Moff Tarkin aboard the Peace Moon was mourned throughout the galaxy.

The attack on the Peace Moon represented a turning point in the rebellion. The terrorists were given legitimacy, and many star systems joined their insurgency. Despite losing many of their leaders and pilots to Imperial defenders, the rebels' fluid command structure meant that they could adapt and adjust to their losses. However, the Empire would deal the rebellion a crushing blow three years later (IY21), in the Battle of Hoth.

Worst. Dance-off. Ever.

 

And you guys asked, nay you demanded, for the right to joust daintily upon the boards to spar for the glory that is 3rd place. I have no prizes to give for 3rd except the least amount of teasing for the teams that don't win prizes, but you wanted glory and so you went for...something. All I really know after watching at least 3 seasons of 'So You Think You Can Dance' with my ex is that wasn't dancing...at all.

 

At all.
