    Can the IK use/or are authorized to use Dark Side powers?

    I haven't read the comics in a long time, but before Roan Fel wanting to destroy Coruscant, what was the military situation? Maybe he could have just blockaded/Sieged the planet until starvation set in. Okay, probably not starvation, because planets are self sustainable, but lack of other essential materiel should force the planet to sue for peace.

    Actually blockading Coruscant seems like a good idea-not just for the empire but any power who wishes to take it. Since most of its foodstuffs are imported a full blockade would cause riots, mass starvation, and eventual surrender.

    Has that ever been attempted before?

    According to my readings, it never happened. No hostile force ever came that close to the system before CIS in ROTS. And theirs is not a siege but a raid. The vongs took Coruscant, but they just overpowered everything without a siege. They just landed.

    Absolutely. It must be hard for the Dark Side to be used as an excuse legally. I assume the Knight in question would have to provide a reason for what otherwise would qualify as treason. How would the courts define the dark side?

    How do you guys think pauldrons and rank coloring work in the Legacy era? Let's look at what we know...
    -Harkas wears yellow-green stripes. We know he's a sergeant. Later we see a devaronian also wearing green. I would assume she's also a sergeant.
    -Trask wears what looks like a small pauldron on his shoulder. He's a corporal. Are pauldrons standard for corporals?
    -We also see troopers of unknown rank with pauldrons. Some appear dark in color while others are orange. Are they officers? I don't remember, can officers wear armor? Noob makes it seem like officers don't wear armor.
    So it would seem privates wear no rank indication, corporals wear pauldrons and sergeants wear green stripes. What do you guys think?

    So in everyone's speculation when do y'all think Jagged Fel ascended to the imperial throne and when do you think the imperial knights were first founded?

    50-60 ABY? 70-100 ABY?

    Well for Jaina lovers I'd say Jag would have to wait for her to die first and then reveal himself to be the ambitious man that he is.
    For Jaina4Spacei queen fans I'd say as soon as they get married.

    Jaina seems to be the most obvious origin for the Imperial Knights. A Jedi becomes Empress, and some of her Jedi friends join her, forming a group of "Imperial Jedi".

    Back to the discussion of stormtrooper rank indicators...
    Having just skimmed through Legacy V2, I noticed a heroic trooper identified as Blue-Two wearing an orange pauldron. Based on his call sign, I'd guess he was second in command of his platoon. With this assumption...

    Private - No rank marking
    Corporal - Greyish Pauldron
    Sergeant - Green Stripes
    Sergeant Major - Orange Pauldron

    Weird how the pauldrons skip a rank. If you have any information for this study PLEASE reply!

    All this seems to confirm what is implied in Noob- Officers don't wear armor. Private through Sergeant Major all wear armor, but I don't recall ever seeing an officer in armor.

    Can't decide which of the Empires I like the most. Divided between the original Galactic Empire, the Remnant under Pallaelon and the Fel Empire (though it seems that is the best choice as it was not depicted as too much moustache twirling villains).

    I like some of the designs of the First Order, but not too much of a fan, until we see more of them.

    Maybe include in the list the Sith Empire from SWTOR era?

    I think by the empire we mean the institution created from the Grand republic post Ruusan(Legends) and it's various incarnations and successor states.

    I wish we knew more about the remnant post Galactic Civil War pre Vong war. Did any of the Moffs wish to continue the war against the NR? Even covertly? We know the kept facilities open in the deep core in the event of renewed hostilities.

    How did the empire spend the post dark nest crisis pre LOTF era?

    How did the tradition and mythology of the IKs come to be? They seem wrapped up in a sanctioned aura and sort of artificially created image and stature? Did Fel or one his descendants create for the IKs a doctrine to follow?

    Post FOTJ were there many Lecersen or Daala sympathizers or Loyalists?

    Well I thought the Sith Empire as a spiritual ancestor of the Galactic Empire.

    Anyway, the questions that you have asked are good and I was hoping that we could get some answers. I think they were on the path with the Sword of the Jedi, but we know what happened.

    I don't think I'd count the Dark Empire as a "faction" considering it was ruled by the Emperor (albeit in a clone body). I'd say that the Empire Reborn had the potential to be the most dangerous of all the different factions--they were a lesser, more terroristic version of Palpatine's Dark Empire. But Shadowspawn's legion almost practically wiped the New Republic's forces and the Skywalker twins off the map with his campaign, so I think he and his army get my vote.

    I’d consider the Dark Empire the legitimate successor of the Empire. In my person canon, when it emerged from hiding and reunified the Imperial remnants I consider the time period that of the ‘Second Galactic Empire’. Only three remnants refused to align with Emperor Reborn at that point.

    About an early question of mine Sinre-how do you think the apparent doctrine and aura of the IKs came to be?

    Second question which is more hypothetical if the empire had decided to fight to the very end(in legends) how much longer could the war have gone on? And how would that have effected the upcoming Vong war?

    While I have read some of the books set after ROTJ, and have seen TFA, the OE is what I am most familiar with.

    Yeah. I'm familiar with a lot of them. I'm completely on board with the Fel's Empire for moral reasons. While the Old Republic is the best faction IMO, the Fel Empire is pretty respectable. The Fel family are a beacon of light in a room full of (mostly) baddies.

    I only know of the OE, Imperial Remnant(assuming this is what was left after the death of the Emperor), and the First Order. Never heard of any of the others.

    Welcome to our little enclave. Why do you like the original Empire? Is there any particular Imperials you fancy?

    And to all my fellow Imperials, who is your favorite Imperial Knight?
    Mine is surely Sigel Dare. Cuz why not? She's Leia from ANH meets Alpha-17. But anyway, best Imperial Knight in your opinion?
