THE DARK TIMES
While attempting to steal the Quasar Fire-Class Cruiser-Carrier, the Ghost crew was double-crossed by members of the Free Ryloth Movement -- freedom fighters who preferred to outright destroy the ship. To stop them, rebels Sabine Wren and Zeb remote controlled an MSE droid -- with a charge attached -- toward the Twi’lek freedom fighters. Detonated at just the right second, the Rylothians were neutralized, and the MSE-series droid proved its worth once more.
Stormtroopers are elite shock troops fanatically loyal to the Empire and impossible to sway from the Imperial cause. They wear imposing white armor, which offers a wide range of survival equipment and temperature controls to allow the soldiers to survive in almost any environment. Stormtroopers wield blaster rifles and pistols with great skill, and attack in hordes to overwhelm their enemies. Along with standard stormtroopers, the Empire has organized several specialized units, including snowtroopers and scout troopers.
A legendary Wookiee warrior and Han Solo’s co-pilot aboard the Millennium Falcon, Chewbacca was part of a core group of Rebels who restored freedom to the galaxy. Known for his short temper and accuracy with a bowcaster, Chewie also has a big heart -- and is unwavering in his loyalty to his friends. He has stuck with Han through years of turmoil that have changed both the galaxy and their lives.
Little more than walking batteries, GNK power droids trundle along as directed by their owners or their programming, recharging vehicles and machinery. They are often called “Gonk” droids in imitation of their simple vocalizations. There are many different models of power droid, most of them similar in appearance and habits as the well-known GNK. Power droids are common sights throughout the galaxy and little noticed despite their critical importance to both military and civilian life.
For over a thousand years, the Galactic Republic stood firm as a democratic union that governed the galaxy. The Republic was governed by the Galactic Senate, consisting of elected officials from each system and world, and Jedi Knights served as peacekeepers. With the rise of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, however, the Galactic Republic -- and democracy -- would crumble.
