The Unknown Journey
The Empire rose to power to defend the galaxy from an invasion. As the war became more difficult to coordinate the Senate relinquished much of its power to the admiralty. With the Admiralty free to fight the war how it pleased, the invaders were pushed back. Weakened by the war, the Admirals launched a campaign to consolidate power and subjugate the galaxy. Not all the Admirals agreed with this move, most notably the Mandalorian Admiral and the Chiss Admiral, leading to a costly civil war that divided the young Empire. The capital planet of the Empire is Coruscant.
