    @robotical712:
    Sorry for jumping the gun on you. i think you wanted to post this on your own thread. But i couldn't resist wanting to discuss one of the point made:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsReference/wiki/analysis/riseofthefirstorder

    Regarding this part:
    "The rise of the First Order did not arise out of no where however, but the result of decades of planning - work which grew out of a plan devised by Emperor Palpatine himself."

    Questions:
    1. Was it Palp's plan for Rax to toss Tashu into the pit of power/destruction in Jakku?
    2. Was it Palp's plan for Jakku to NOT explode as Rax had intended to do?

    It seems to me that things happened that Rax and Palp's did not plan for. So how much of the current(in/after TFA) First Order was actually part of Palp's plan? I would say that Palp's planted the seeds, but the FO as we know it in TFA is more the product of Snoke's work than Palp's.

    I don't know if it Palpatine specifically wanted Tashu sacrificed, but it was definitely his intention that the world would be destroyed while the remnants of the Empire and the Republic were there (he was the one who left the artifacts for Rax). Further, one of the plot points at the end of the book was the sentinel sent out coordinates to a number of ships considered loyal to Palpatine. That means the Emperor intended for part of his Empire to survive and form the nucleus of a successor. Just how much of the First Order itself was planned by Palpatine, we don't know yet.
