A Year Ago Today: Star Wars Lore - The Confederacy of Independent Systems
Following the Invasion of Naboo, there was a lot of tension between Core and Outer Rim Republic held planets. Years of government corruption and poor decisions did not mix well with recent taxing of trade routes on poor star systems. Eventually, many worlds decided that it was time to turn their backs on the Republic, who they saw only changing if radical action was taken. Some star systems belonging to the Republic began to rebel, they formed a group known as the Secessionist Movement. Led by the former Jedi Count Dooku, who was secretly a Sith Lord, the group soon rallied thousands of star systems together in a rebellion against the Republic. This was the birth of the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
A year ago today I released Star Wars Lore Episode 97. Fun fact: this was the first episode to feature a long intro, which has stuck ever since! Make sure you check it out.
