Sidious has created a huge empire. The Stormtroopers do brilliant work, the economy and Battle Strength is growing. New successes can be achieved in the propulsion and weapons technologies.
One day rumors arised that the World Council was corrupt. But, these were just rumors until International Trade Reports were found by an Alliance that could only come from the World Council. Funny world, Sidious thought and criticized the World Council in the World Forum. At about this time there was an incident. The International Defense Fleet, which emerged out of nowhere, plundered a peaceful settler. It is rumored that the fleet has even been made available to a faction to further plunder this settler. Voices comparing the World Council with dictators can be heard.
However, these voices soon became silent, no one has ever heard them.
Sidious was now warned that the days of this planet were numbered. He started the project Death Star. A huge base, able to sustainably build and reduce resources.
Years passed. Very quiet. Only insignificant things appeared in the World Forum.
