Legacy of the Force
The New Empire
In the years following the Second Galactic Civil War, the Imperial Remnant started to gain more and more influence. Under the leadership of the Fel dynasty, the Remnant slowly began to reestablish itself as an Empire once again.
The Alliance also embarked on an ambitious new program—the Ossus Project. Backed by the New Jedi Order, led by Kol Skywalker and Nei Rin of the Yuuzhan Vong Shaper caste, the planet Ossus was used as a test bed for restoring planetary ecosystems through shaper technology. The results were spectacular, as Ossus emerged into a verdant world of jungles.
One hundred worlds were selected by the Alliance for terraforming. Yet, a resurgent Sith Order sabotaged the projects, causing immense pain and anger among the citizens of the project’s selected worlds. The Jedi immediately suspected sabotage, but were unable to prove it. As numerous worlds began to suspect that it was the Yuuzhan Vong who caused the project to fail, the Jedi Order urged the Galactic Alliance government to support the Vong against criticism. Angered, numerous worlds began declaring their independence of the Alliance or neutrality.
