Star Wars: Shattered Worlds
Originally formed by Princess Leia Organa as a splinter group of the New Republic’s military after the Galactic Concordance with the remnant of the first Galactic Empire began the process of demilitarizing the Galaxy, the Resistance became the first line of defense against the return of Imperial forces and their near destruction of the New Republic. Bolstered by a new force of Jedi trained by Luke Skywalker, the Resistance continued to keep the remnant forces of the Empire in check for the years to come. However, even with the Republic’s ultimate preservation, the Resistance continued to act outside the governance of the Senate and its authorized chain of military command in order to focus solely on containing decades of aggression by the enemies of the New Republic.
With the rise of the second Sith Empire and its unification of these remnant Imperials, the Resistance fought side-by-side with Republic fleets and soldiers in the defense of the Core worlds. However, after the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant this independent military faction refused to acknowledge Imperial rule and continued to mount opposition throughout the Galaxy. Even after their loss at Ord Mantell the Resistance continued to mobilize, restoring a Galactic Civil War era stronghold on Yavin IV from which to base its operations. It was instrumental in jamming Imperial signals in order to dissiminate news of the Bespin Accords which officially founded the Galactic Coalition for which it serves as the primary military wing.
