Today is a day of unity, a day of true peace. The Alliance to Restore the Republic and Galactic Empire surely were organizations of their word, bringing peace to this galaxy is what they swore to do but they both had different visions of it. The Empire brought peace through security, order, justice and fear while the Alliance brought peace through war, violence, and placing young, inexperienced teenagers on the front lines, yet the Empire knew and still killed those soldiers. The Galactic Republic had peace, but a former Jedi tainted that peace, resulting in the Clone Wars, the Jedi responded with power and violence. But I, Galactic President of the New Empire, will not fail you when I say that I have restored the preservation of the peace that this galaxy once had thousands of years ago!, I am not the enemy. The remnants of the Alliance and Old Empire are! The Galactic Eclipse Empire will keep you safe from the dangers of this galaxy! Your preservation is our mission.
—Jenkins Fall to the Eclipse Senate and the galaxy through galactic communications
The Galactic Eclipse Empire, or referred simply as the Eclipse Empire and New Empire, was the reorganization of the Old Empire and Alliance to Restore the Republic during the aftermath of the Battle of Endor, which resulted in the Empire's Emperor and Alliance's Chief of State, and other important members, deaths which both organizations were left with no leader until Jenkins Fall came along who then got the surviving forces of the Empire and Alliance to join together under the Imperialist Alliance.
During this time span as the Imperialist Alliance, both former Imperial and Alliance members had to work together to make the alliance work but didn't have enough as for Angel would later have every high ranking member of the Imperialist Alliance assassinated and replaced with clones of Angel that would be placed into certain positions to ensure his absolute power over the government and had reorganized it into the Galactic Eclipse Empire. Though some leaders escaped.
In the aftermath of the Battle of Endor, the remaining Alliance and Imperial forces had fought against each other for territory for about three weeks before being reunited as the Imperialist Alliance and then for about two months and a week, Angel had executed the second phase of his plan and assassinated the leaders then reorganized it into the Galactic Eclipse Empire.
During the infighting, several leaders had formed their own faction to fight against the others, such as the Alliance Loyalists and Imperial Remnant. When some of these leaders were assassinated and killed, their second-in-commands took control of their forces and broke away from the New Empire, each vowing to avenge their leader and defeat the New Empire.
After the Imperialist Alliance was reorganized into the Eclipse Empire, many did not question Angel's intentions since he had discussed that in order for peace then there needs to be a central leader, one who would not let anything happen to the preservation of the New Empire as well as the people of the galaxy. The Eclipse Empire took control of the territory controlled by the Imperialist Alliance and had reorganized many of its branches including the judicial branches such as the Imperialist Alliance Senate into the Senate of the Eclipse Empire. The military held by the Imperialist Alliance had been reorganized into the Eclipse Military including its sub-branches such as the Imperialist Alliance Army into the Eclipse Army and the Imperialist Alliance Navy into the Eclipse Navy.
At the time that Thrawn was assassinated, Tachibana Heavy Engineering was able to recover war machines and that they only kept him alive long enough to find the Old Empire's machines before assassinating him as somewhat a loose end. Tachibana Heavy Engineering then started to manufacture these war machines but reengineered them to better fit with the standards of the New Empire's military forces.
During this time, the Eclipse Military was spread throughout the galaxy but wasn't thinned out as its ranks were filled with millions of troops, the military had on a tight grip on its citizens as well as on its political counterparts. After neutralizing three warlords of the Imperialist Alliance, the New Empire has expanded its ocean of warships and grew another four fleet formations, growing the fleet of ships they had as well as growing the Army forces.
After the assassinations of Generals Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo, and Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, their factions started a war against the New Empire that spanned the entire galaxy. This allowed other remnants of the Alliance and Old Empire to fight back as well.
In response to the attacks, the Eclipse High Council had deployed the Eclipse Military, and while it was during an open conflict, each of the military command branches had rights to make their own decisions due to Angel's policy, ignoring most orders given by the High Council.
Government and politics
The Empire was ruled with absolute and supreme power and control of Galactic President Jenkins Fall with Angel II as Galactic Vice President and Angel XI as Eclipse Grand Commander of all Eclipse Forces within the galaxy. There was absolutely no freedom of speech within the Empire, much like the previous, and deadly force would be used against those complaining about freedom of speech. The Empire celebrated a holiday called Day of the Eclipse with an anthem called Glory of the Eclipse, which was the same anthem used by the former Galactic Empire years before.
The Eclipse Empire was actually more organized, and had more back-up plans and contingency orders than its predecessor, the sectors controlled by the Alliance and Empire were controlled by Regional Councillors, who would often compete in which region would be the best and highly supportive region within the Eclipse Empire that spawned an annual competition called Region Wars. These Regional Councillors were part of the Region Council of the Eclipse.
Rulers of the Eclipse
After declaring himself as Galactic President, Angel turned the position Galactic Emperor into something more than what it was and something more better. Following the ideals of the Confederate States of Earth's Presidency position.
- Jenkins Fall as Galactic President
- Angel II as Galactic Vice President
- Angels III to X as Council Advisers
- Angel XI as Eclipse Grand Commander
- Angel XII as High Councillor
- Angels XIII to XX as Councillors
- Angels XXI to XXXV as Regional Councillors
- Angels XXXVI to XLVIII as Commanders of various branches
- Alliance rulers
- Imperial rulers
- Various Grand Admirals - 4 ABY—9 ABY
- Grand Admiral Thrawn - 4.8 ABY
- Moff/Commander Tiaan Jerjerrod - 4.3 ABY
- Admiral Firmus Piett - 4.4 ABY
- Admiral Jhared Montferrat - 5 ABY
- Captain Anna Nakamura - 4.3 ABY
- General Maximilian Veers - 7 ABY
- Commander Ciena Ree - 4.3 ABY
- Including other Imperial Warlords - 4.3 ABY—12 ABY
The executive branch of Angel's new Empire was the Presidency Council which acted much like the Imperial Ruling Council but consisted of Angels III to X which each of them held their own responsibility within the Presidency Council as Advisers as well as political positions within the Eclipse Empire of their regions.
Much of the Empire's power needed approval straight from the Office of the Galactic President in order to push bills, increase or decrease taxes, declare free trade zones as well as commission new branches for the Empire. Many of the clone Advisers would often debate with Angel regarding certain operations and matters that caught his full attention.
The legislative branch of the Eclipse Empire was the Eclipse High Council, but held little power compared to that of the Presidency Council and the judicial branches of the Empire. The Council did, however, hold major power over the Military and its operations as well as intergalactic affairs with unaligned and neutral systems.
The Council was led by Angel XII as High Councillor with Angels XIII to XX as Councillors. The Council also debated and discussed about the operations conducted by the Office of the Galactic President and the Department of Military Research, also cooperating closely with the Department of Unaligned Systems.
The duties of the judicial branches of the Empire varied depending on which of the branches they were formed for, such as the Department of Political Prosecution which was responsible for prosecuting political figures within the Empire for either not agreeing or attempting to overthrow Angel's leadership as Galactic President. This branch alone gave political senators a reason to not attempt to overthrow Angel at all.
Other Imperial organizations
For Angel to ensure that no one in the galaxy would attempt to overthrow his order, he had commissioned various organizations such as Eclipse Intelligence, Eclipse Security Bureau, and the Office of Security Contingency Orders, even a secret organization known to its members only as the Eternal Guardians.
These organizations allowed Angel to keep his eyes and ears in everything the Empire conducted such as public affairs, secretive resistance movements and secrecy meetings not involving any high ranking members, or any of the Angel clones.
Like its predecessor, the Eclipse Empire used slavery as another means of getting construction projects completed on time whereas if something is falling behind schedule, the Navy would transport slaves, captured by the Army, to their required destinations and become resuming where other construction teams left off by assisting the best they could to their ability. However, unlike the Old Empire, the slaves weren't executed once they finished a top secret project.

We are the Galactic Eclipse Empire and our mission is the preservation of the galaxy!, and the preservation of peace!
—Angel explaining the mission of the Eclipse Military
The Eclipse Military was the military arm of the Eclipse Empire. It consisted and housed the Eclipse Army, Eclipse Droid Army, Eclipse Navy, Eclipse Special Forces, and Special Operations Command, and was led by Eclipse High Command.
The Military would get approval to conduct new operations from High Command who would then get approval from the Eclipse High Council, or sometimes directly from Angel himself. The Military also held protocols that would override the High Council's ability to give them orders which were made effective by Angel in order to have a military and government fully equipped and ready to respond to any threat in the galaxy.
The contingency orders of the Military were left in the hands of the Office of Security Contingency Orders and Eclipse Intelligence with their respective leaders having complete authority to executing said contingency orders whenever the current situation required it. One of the most well-known contingency orders was Order: TRAITOR.
A minority of the Eclipse Army personnel consisted of field officers of various types with each of them having certain duties within their respective sub-branch and units while the majority consisted of Army Troopers and Rangers recruited from various star systems within the Old Empire and Alliance which came up to be in the thousands, possibly hundreds of thousand to millions of troops that made up the Eclipse Army to be as strong as it was feared to be. Many would consider it the Reformed Imperial Army of the former Galactic Empire.
Many of the Clones of Jenkins served within the Army as Commanders to various sub-branches and units with the original Angel sometimes taking a direct and absolute role within the Army as Supreme General of the Army (Unofficial rank).
Army Officers wore uniforms similar to those of the Imperial Army officers which varied depending on their duty. Regular Army Officers would be seen wearing the black uniform with their rank insignia on the left upper side of their uniform. Army Field Officers wore a similar coloured uniform but darker than the Army Officer with the same layout as well. Eclipse Droid Army Officers wore an all black uniform with their rank insignia in the same position as their counterparts.
Eclipse Army Troopers were equipped with the same armour as Stormtroopers but had heavier plating than their predecessors as well as being given armour that could deflect lightsaber swings without being knocked out or knocked over. The armour could also deflect multiple blaster bolts before being penetrated for a killing blow.
Eclipse Ranger Corps
In the New Empire, the Eclipse Ranger Corps was an elite branch of specialized clone soldiers who have been cloned on the water world of Kamino and given more better equipment, armour and technology to work with.
Although the Eclipse Empire didn't have any enemies, the Ranger Corps was considered to be an elite unit under the Eclipse Army that worked in the dark to flush out any traitors within the New Empire, including citizens, political figures and military members. Being different from the Titan-SSs, the Rangers had armour systems with shielding, same to that of a Titan-SS, as well as a powered exoskeleton suit to help them with hard-to-reach places, greatly increasing their effectiveness during training sessions.
Eclipse Droid Army
The majority of the Eclipse Droid Army consisted of superior built droid units with some models being B1 battle droids as well as the line of droids that followed the B1. Many of the droid models used were reacquired by the Eclipse Army during the reformation of the surviving forces. Some new models were built by Tachibana Heavy Engineering.
Eclipse Stormtrooper Engine
The Eclipse Stormtrooper Engine was a branch of the Eclipse Droid Army responsible for deploying STORMTROOPER units into battle during the War Against the Remnants. This branch was commissioned by the High Council, personally. The droid models built for this branch were specifically for this branch alone as they were built as multi-role droids.

The majority of the Eclipse Navy consisted of mostly officers such as fleet officers, deck officers and commanding officers who all made up the fleet of the Navy. The uniforms were the same as the Imperial Navy with the highest officer wearing a uniform similar to that of an imperial Grand Admiral. Depending on the rank given to a naval officer, the colour of their uniform differed very much from each other.
Most officers were equipped with a standard issue Scout trooper blaster pistol to defend themselves from either traitors, hostiles and double agents. Many of the Eclipse Navy officers were extreme loyalists to the Galactic President that they would even execute another officer if Angel ordered. New officers who graduated straight out of the academy were asked to do this task before having to serve so Angel could ensure that everyone who joined the Empire would be extreme loyalists like everyone else.
This alone had put so much pressure on new recruits and haunted them for weeks before accepting their fate and complying with every order from now on, making the Eclipse Empire one of the deadliest military organizations since the Old Empire.
The Eclipse Navy fleet had consisted of over a hundred fleets, possibly surpassing two hundred. With thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of warships in the Navy's "ocean" as it was considered more organized and more secure than the Imperial Navy.

These Marines served the Navy as both naval and ground units, even as combat engineers and technical officers.
Eclipse Starfighter Corps
The Eclipse Starfighter Corps was the starfighter branch of the New Empire that was responsible for maintaining communication control with their pilots which made up to be millions of pilots in the coming years. Pilots of the Starfighter Corps were expertly trained in fighter to fighter combat against possibly hostile starfighters and pirates.

Eclipse Special Forces
The Eclipse Special Forces was the special forces unit of the Eclipse Military and takes orders directly from Special Operations Command and mainly consisted of Titan-SS units, super soldiers based on the Old Empire's Dark Troopers and so on. Unlike their predecessors, the Titan-SS weren't trained with the Dark side as there wasn't any Dark side users in the Eclipse Empire at the time.
Titan-SS soldiers were equipped with specialized armour close to that of an old Clone Wars-era Republic Commando and weapons depending on the Titan's choice. Their armour also carried shielding as well as specialized equipment that assisted them in the field such as communications, close and long-range rader scanners and extra ammo and supply packets even an exoskeleton-powered suit.
Special Operations Command
The Special Operations Command was the command structure for the Eclipse Special Forces, often commanded by a Special Operations Commander, the Special Operations Command receives orders directly from the High Council and has the right to make its own decisions due to the Angel Command Policy that overrid the High Council's ability to hold power over the Military.
The Imperial Senate building was transformed into the Senate of the Eclipse Empire building while the Old Republic Executive Building was used and transformed as the main executive building of the Joint Systems of the Eclipse, Department of Political Prosecution, and Department of Unaligned Systems.
Many Eclipse Army Troopers, and Droid Army units were stationed as both security and quick military response forces within the district of where these buildings were located at. The Eclipse Navy also had stationed two Imperial II-class Star Destroyers to hover over the district as well to increase security as well as having TIE/LN starfighters doing patrol runs.
The administration of the Eclipse Empire consisted of the Presidency Council, Eclipse High Council and the Joint Systems of the Eclipse to ensure control and order within the state of the Empire throughout the galaxy. Galactic President Jenkins Fall had always checked in on these groups to make sure that everything wasn't out of place but since the Presidency Council and the High Council only consisted of clones, it wasn't really necessary but still kept a close eye on the Joint Systems group as it was filled with actual human representatives than clones.
