    I wonder since there was a New Republic at one point shortly after Jedi and it is now called the Resistance. I wonder if at the end of Episode IX the Resistance will go back being the New Republic or will it called something else like the Galactic Alliance? And if there will be Episodes X-XII or a SST and I hope there is will it be about the New reformed Republic or Galactic Alliance against an entirely new threat?

    Maybe the ST could be a continuation of the ongoing civil war between the Rebels and the Empire and are now called the First Order and the Resistance and the SST(Episodes X-XII) will be the rebuilding of the Republic/Jedi Order trilogy that the ST was supposed to be?

    I lean towards the idea that the Republic and the Resistance are not the same thing. My take is that the Resistance operates in First Order controlled systems and is secretly backed by the Republic. Time will tell, of course, and there's a lot we don't know about the intervening thirty years. But this has always made the most sense to me, so I suspect we'll hear about the Republic and its current existence in TFA.

    I added more choices to the voting poll. Maybe it won't happen till a possible fifth trilogy in which Rey,Fin and Poe Dameron are in their 50s and 60s which wouldn't be made till around 2045. But it will happen eventually. Or maybe there could be more galactic civil wars for years and decades to come. Which means there will be many more episodes beyond Episode IX.

    Well again, with the info that we currently have I believe that the Republic exists in TFA and that it's called the Republic.

    Thanks to whoever finally voted. But I still hope there will be Episodes X-XII so we can see how the Republic is rebuilding itself after the possible triumph of defeating the First Order in Episode IX. Maybe there will be a new enemy for the Republic to face in the SST like an alien invasion from the Unknown Regions,outside the galaxy or a faction of star systems against the Republic like the Corellian Confederation similar to Legacy of the Force. A New seperatist movement perhaps either Corellians or possibly a Mandalorian uprising with their own armada of ships.

    Well, with the new description of the First Order that's been put out there, I'm no longer sure. But at the time when I posted in this thread, the New Republic was confirmed to have existed by the time of the battle of Jakku, and there was no reason to think that it would somehow vanish in just thirty years.

    http://starwars.ea.com/starwars/battlefront/news/jakku-pre-order-offer

    The EW article makes the First Order sound a LOT more powerful than I had assumed, though. Still, it seems hard to believe that after all of that the Republic would fall in just thirty years. But I really have no idea.

    The summary for the new mobile game Star Wars: Uprising (which will be canon) gives some credibility to your theory that the resistance is a smaller group operating within enemy territory.

    {The game's plot will officially be part of the new Star Wars canon. Set shortly after the events of Return of the Jedi, Imperial Governor Adelhard of the Anoat Sector refuses to release his grip, instead locking down the sector to prevent all incoming and outgoing space traffic to keep everyone within and allow him to maintain an iron rule. He refuses to accept the death of Darth Vader and Palpatine and the fall of the Empire. As the Rebel Alliance only has a small presence in the sector, smugglers, assassins, crime lords, nobles and crime cartels form their own rebellion against Adelhard}

    From this description, one could speculate that Maz Kanata is one of these smugglers/crime lords who make up the first order, explaining why we see Maz's castle under attack from first order troopers.

    I'm siding the @jmjawors in that I think the Resistance and the New Republic are two different entities altogether, and the New Republic exists as a major power but doesn't play a direct role in TFA but rather finances and equips the Resistance. Mostly I'm going off vibes, primarily unconfirmed (and perhaps unfounded) rumors going about for quite some time of a "Cold War-like" scenario happening.

    I'm thinking something like the US' under-the-radar support to the Mujahideen during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, hopefully even showing the morally ambiguous nature of real-life freedom fighters as has been somewhat hinted at.

    I might have missed that. What is the new description you saw?

    If that's the case. Will the Resistance be in Episodes X-XII the posssible sequel sequel trilogy? That would be awesome. They could go up against a new enemy like an alien invasion from the Unknown Regions or outside the galaxy like in NJO or a planetary confederation like the Corellian Confederation from Legacy of the Force or a perhaps a Mandalorian uprising with an awesome fleet of Mandalorian ships going up aginst the Resistance. Perhaps the First Order and the Ressistance will have made peace in Episode IX and team up in the SST to battle the new enemy.

    Nothing spectacular, just stuff from EW and the toy packaging. They're described as a junta, so we know they've taken power by force and they're being marketed as very powerful. It just doesn't quite line up with my thoughts on them from a month ago or so.

    "Always in motion is the future."

    I'd say going forward and with trilogies we have a better chance at seeing them take inspiration from the EU. We might even have the same thing going for the ST, though we can't know for sure until we see TFA. Going back to my thing, the reason the Battle of Endor could be big, exciting, and meaningful was because we had 2.5 movies before it to make us care, so certainly in the ST or an XT (what I refer to X-XII as for sake of simplicity in my own mind :p) we could see some of those huge battles.

    EDIT: Heh, the "going back to my thing" I think was for another thread. Me got confused. But I'll leave it there anyways. :rolleyes:

    Going on your last point about the First Order teaming up with the Resistance, ehm... I don't see that happening. I could see a successor to the First Order "teaming up" with the Resistance/New Republic surely, the same as Nazi Germany partly became Western Germany and followed kind of closely with the US and UK. But on that, there have been hints that the First Order is not the only remnant power of the Empire, and that there might be other Imperial remnants out there that could even work with the Resistance/New Republic in the ST. I would love to see stormtroopers fighting against stormtroopers.

    I would love to see this possible sucessor to the First Order team up with the Resistance/New Republic not just in the ST to battle the First Order but to team up in the SST to battle alien threats from the Unknown Regions,a Planetary or Galactic confederation or a Mandalorian armada or even a Lost Tribe of the Sith and their own armada.

    It would also be cool to see other Imperial Remnants out there. Perhaps they are hiding in the Unknown Regions and they could be enemies of SST(Episodes X-XII) which I still hope comes out in 2021,2023 and 2025.
