Over three thousand years before the rise of Darth Vader, the Jedi Order and the Galactic Republic emerged victorious in the Jedi Civil War against the evil Sith Empire. For hundreds of years there were peace in the galaxy and the Sith Empire were assumed to be extinct. Only for a thousand years later, they re-emerged from unknown space to reconquer their lost home world Korriban and attack the Republic and several other worlds. After several defeats by the Republic and the lost of their hold on several systems, the Empire offers a truce to the conflicts. With the lost of many of their systems, and their capital, Coruscant, also captured by the Empire, they have little choice but to agree with the Empire's terms. The Treaty of Coruscant is signed and the Republic must cede control of many of their star systems and acknowledge new boundaries of Imperial dominion. After years of conflict, the fighting finally comes to an end. But tensions are growing over the last few years and peace hangs by a thread; a return to open war may be all but inevitable.
