    Please keep this Canon but TBH I don’t care. Lol


    I guess I’ll answer my question just to get my opinion out there. At any point, by which I mean any time of a specific faction’s power or reign, specifically a more powerful and strong point of their reign or time alive, you may choose. I’d go with the Galactic Empire at the peak of their reign and tyranny. As they built the Death Star, they destroy peoples and planets as they ransack other planets and peoples of money and food, and ect. They are too powerful for a small planetary rebellion or something among that matter at the time. Of course, before the Rebellion against the Empire is started aka the Galactic Civil War.

    i wouldn’t think both sides of the Clone Wars, the Republic and the Separatists, would be the most powerful because they are puppeted by Palpatine. Also that war was just constant fighting and death with both sides winning systems.

    Trade Federation: Just No!

    Trade Federation- NO

    Separatists- Droids were outsmarted by the superior creativity of clones, augmented by their separate Jedi. They lasted as long as they did because of their numbers, but mainly due to the manipulative skills of Dooku and Sidious, and their various apprentices. Additionally, bounty hunters and Nightsisters helped tremendously. Still, they were on the losing side of the war. NO

    Rebellion- Death Star One just cost the Empire resources and denied them from blowing up planets. It also took out Tarkin, which could arguably be the biggest losses of Death Star One. Death Star 2 took out Vader and Palps, but still, it took longer to defeat the empire. There is also the case of Dumbass Imperial Syndrome in for example Star Wars Rebels, so we have to account for that. Still, Rebellion only won because it took the head off the snake, so....
    NO

    New Republic- You didn’t include this, but they weren’t well militarized anyway, so NO

    Resistance- Again, the New Republic weren’t well militarized, so the Resistance was created. However, the highest members could pull strings in the New Republic and they were still pathetic. NO

    First Order- The main problem here is that there were still some giant Star Destroyers after Sidious died. Idk. However, their power is diminished because if they had revealed the Final Order earlier, then the Destroyers would have survived and not been taken out by the lightning storm of Palps. Close, but NO

    Republic- With the best of all factions against each other, Republic wins easily. Clones and Jedi individually take out all comers. The only thing that they wouldn’t win is best general, with Trench, Kalani, or Canon Thrawn in the lead. And Legends Thrawn wins that anyway, but you said no legends, and Thrawn isn’t even a Galactic Imperial, he’s Imperial Remnant. For example, Trench is a better general than Anakin. However, the clones are extremely versatile, which is what Anakin takes advantage of. So technically, while Trench is a better general using his commonplace troops, it is the versatility of the clones that gives Anakin the advantage. However, in a drawn out war, the Republic would lose to the Empire seeing as they have more troops and resources. NO

    Empire- The big difference from the Separatists and the Empire was the skill of the troops. While the Separatists printed out about 1 Quintillion droids, the Empire only had about 1.1 billion stormtroopers on each Star Destroyer.
    However, the empire had the perfect balance between skill and numbers, and they had Vader, Tarkin, and the machinations of Palps. Empire wins

    Yes, indeed. But they had the wrong power if you know what I mean. They forced you to give money and food to them, and if you refused, you were killed. But, with their power, nobody could rebel until later on.

    I agree. The separatists were only powerful in numbers as they were somewhat cheap to produce. The Republic had intelligent soldiers along with their jedi generals. Trade Fed=NO. Anyway, yeah the Empire was the most powerful faction at the peak of their rule.
