"The Republic has grown and expanded for many generations, encountering no worse than a few interplanetary squabbles and civil wars…but if we should confront the fabled Sith Empire, we will experience a war so great, so devastating…it can cross the fabric of hyperspace, a conflagration spanning the galaxy…"―OorooThe Great Hyperspace War was a war fought between theGalactic Republic and the Sith Empire in 5,000 BBY.The conflict encompassed the entire Galactic Republic, though the main forces focused their attention on three Republic worlds, and later took the war to the remote star system Primus Goluud, and the Sith mausoleum world ofKorriban.After it overcame the initial shock of the Sith invasion, the Republic's armadas regrouped and annihilated the Sith Empire, forcing the Sith Lord Naga Sadow to exile himself toYavin 4.
After their defeat during the earliest Jedi Civil Wars, called the Great Schisms, the adherents of the dark side fled from Republic space and settled on the world of Korriban, where they ruled over the barbaric, red-skinned Sith species like gods.In time, the Dark Jedi and the remarkably Force-sensitiveSith natives interbred through the use of Sith alchemy, and became one people. The united Sith formed an immensely rich and powerful empire built upon sorcery, and dark-side-fueled technology quite possibly adapted from the scattered ruins of the earlier Infinite Empire of the Rakata.Over the centuries, the Dark Jedi exiles were forgotten by the Galactic Republic, even as all records of the Republic were lost by the Sith. The two civilizations thrived in isolation, each ignorant of the other.
Discovery of the Sith Empire
Gav and Jori Daragon.During the height of the Sith Empire, two Republic hyperspace explorers stumbled upon the Sith mausoleum planet of Korriban by chance. The siblings, Gav and Jori Daragon, hoped to discover a lucrative new hyperspace route that would help them pay off their enormous debts. After stealing back their impounded ship Starbreaker 12, they dialed random coordinates into theirnav computer and entered hyperspace, trusting in their "luck" (i.e., untrainedForce potential) to survive the journey.Their arrival on Korriban coincided with the death of the greatest Dark Lord at the time, Marka Ragnos. The two challengers for his crown, Naga Sadow and Ludo Kressh, were in the midst of a duel for mastery on the threshold of his tomb when the Daragons descended from orbit.Upon landing, Gav and Jori were immediately captured, and brought to the icy Sith capital world of Ziost for interrogation. After learning of the forgotten Republic, a conclave of the Sith Lords led by Kressh declared them spies and sentenced them to death, but Naga Sadow disagreed. He dreamed of vast new territories to conquer for the Empire. With the aid of his alchemically-modified Massassi Warriors, he masterminded the Daragons' escape, and planted evidence that they had been rescued by Republic agents.Sadow moved the Daragons to his personal fortress on Khar Shian, pretending he was their ally, while simultaneously using their supposed "escape" to galvanize the Sith Lords into a war against the Republic. Keeping the siblings separated, he began to teach Gav Sith sorcery, even as he made excuses to keep his sister Jori from returning to Republic space.Kressh soon discovered Sadow's subterfuge, and marshaled his followers to attack Sadow's fortress. When Kressh's fleet arrived, Sadow advised Jori to flee from the battle without her absent brother, and to warn the Republic of the impending invasion, but all had transpired as Sadow had planned. Once Jori made the jump tolightspeed, he unleashed a massive force that he had previously withheld, and soundly defeated Kressh. Ludo Kressh's flagship was destroyed in the engagement. With his competition presumably dead, Sadow united the military forces of the Empire, and crowned himself Dark Lord of the Sith. Following the homing beacon he had placed aboard the Starbreaker 12, Sadow began his invasion of the Galactic Republic.Meanwhile, after numerous delays, Jori managed to deliver a warning to Empress Teta of the Koros system. The skeptical empress eventually followed the advice of her Jedi councilor Memit Nadill, and that of his companionsOdan-Urr and Master Ooroo. She alerted Coruscant to the impending invasion, but few heeded her warnings.
Sadow deployed his fleets to invade numerous Republic worlds simultaneously, while he parked his eye-shapedmeditation sphere near the red-giant star Primus Goluud and used battle meditation to aid his forces in the field. The ferocity of the Sith invasion swiftly overwhelmed the lax Republic Navy.Passing the Primus Goluud, Gav Daragon was given command of the Koros Major invasion fleet. Using theKoros Trunk Line, Sadow attacked Kaikielius and the Foerost Shipyards and then attacked Coruscant, landing onLegislative District and reached the Senate Hall where they encountered Jedi defenders. Other parts of the fleet went to Metellos, Basilisk and Shawken.When Gav arrived in his home system, a significant battle ensued. During the fighting, Gav searched for his sister at Aarrba the Hutt's starship repair dock, flanked by a host of Massassi bodyguards. Aarrba, a close family friend, was struck down by his guards just moments before Jori entered the chamber. Thinking Gav had killed Aarrba, she attacked her brother with a lightsaber given to her by Odan-Urr. Gav fled from his sister, and returned to his master at Primus Goluud. Without their commander, the Sith forces on Koros fell into disarray, and were defeated.The Jedi Order fight Naga Sadow and his armies during the war.Upon arrival at Primus Goluud, Gav opened fire on Sadow's meditation sphere, breaking the Sith Lord's concentration upon the distant invasion of Coruscant, thereby allowing the Republic soldiers to rally and win that battle, as well. Meanwhile, on the planet Kirrek, yet another battle was fought. There, Jedi MasterOoroo defeated a massed force of Massassi warriors, but sacrificed his life in the process.The tide of the war changed with the discovery that Sadow usedForce illusion to appear more numerous than it really was. Reinforced with this, the naval base of Anaxessupported Coruscant's defenses and helped the Republic to push the Sith forces back to Koros Major.Jori and Empress Teta followed Gav to Primus Goluud at the head of a large Koros fleet. Realizing that the tide of war had turned against him, Sadow abandoned his embattled forces to the leadership of Gav Daragon, and used a Sith superweapon to implode the nearby star. Disgusted by Sadow's betrayal, Gav turned against his master. He transmitted the hyperspace coordinates of the Sith Empire to Empress Teta, and warned her to leave the system just before Primus Goluud went supernova, destroying Naga Sadow's meditation sphere, and Gav along with it.
Naga Sadow managed to flee back to the Sith Empire, but a living, breathing Ludo Kressh was waiting for him inambush. Having discovered Sadow's plan to assassinate him, Kressh had allowed the new Sith Lord to think him dead. His attack on Sadow's fortress had been a feint intended to lull Sadow into complacency, but in the end Kressh's complex plans came to naught. He was killed when one of Sadow's vessels slammed into his own during the frenzied Sith battle over Korriban.The Republic armadas arrived while the Sith fleets battled each other, and managed to annihilate them both in the cross-fire. Sadow sacrificed the remains of his fleet to ensure his own survival. Destroying his pursuers with tricks and sorcery, he limped away from the engagement aboard his damaged flagship.In the aftermath of the battle, Supreme Chancellor Pultimo of the Republic ordered an invasion of Sith space.The Republic and the Jedi Order then embarked on a military expedition throughout the territories ruled by the Sith Empire, to search out all remaining Sith strongholds and destroy them. The attack was temporarily averted whenShar Dakhan ordered suicide attacks, forcing the Republic forces to retreat but many Sith killed themselves ritually, giving an advance to the Republic fleet to win the War.
Soon i will post the unit list for land units,though the space units list could take a bit more time.Hope you will track this mod.
