Over millennia the Old Republic stood for freedom and prosperity. Peace reigned throughout the Galaxy. War became a rare event. That is until corruption and the desire for power infected the Galactic Senate. Soon freedom and the Old Republic were destroyed. Freedom was not forgotten by those who believed in its principles. Many groups were born to fight in order to restore a dream that was never quite lost. These people believed the dream of freedom should not be lost.
When the SoroSuub Conglomerate and the Rebel Alliance joined forces, they restored the Republic. They formed a New Republic based on the old principles of freedom and justice. After the fall of the New Republic, the Rebel Alliance rose from the ashes again to oppose the Galactic Empire and the tyranny that it considered it to be.
