"I'm sorry, Jyn. Without the full support of the council, the odds are too great."
―Mon Mothma to Jyn Erso[src]

The Alliance High Command, also known as Alliance Command, Rebel Command, Rebel Alliance High Command, Rebel council or the Alliance council, was the leadership council of the Alliance to Restore the Republic. It was headed by Chancellor Mon Mothma and also included General Jan Dodonna and Admiral Gial Ackbar. Soldiers in the field complained that it attempted to manage the Rebellion as a government, and not a military resistance.

HistoryEdit

Early daysEdit

In the early days of the rebellion against the Galactic Empire, various rebel cells began coordinating their efforts to combat the reign of the Empire.[9] A Rebel Command was established that included Bail Organa and Commander Jun Sato. In 2 BBY, Organa and Sato tasked the crew of the Ghost with a mission to recover a rebel team led by Saw Gerrera from the planet Geonosis.[6]

Following the formation of the Rebel Alliance,[10] the Alliance High Command based themselves on Dantooine before they transferred operations to a new headquarters[2] inside the ruins of the Great Temple on Yavin 4. It was from there that the Alliance launched their assault on the planet Scarif and saw the acquisition of the technical data to the Galactic Empire's new superweapon, the Death Star.[3]

After YavinEdit

Following the evacuation from Yavin,[11] The Alliance High Command met in the Alliance Fleet to discuss what actions to take next. Leia Organa, who had just completed a successful assault on Weapons Factory Alpha on Cymoon 1, urged the leadership to allow her team to continue pressing the Alliance's advantage against the Empire. Admiral Gial Ackbar told the princess that they could not maintain such an offensive due to still being on the run.[1]

Learning of the Second Death StarEdit

Death Star II revealed

The Alliance High Command learns that the Empire is building a new Death Star.

Four years after the Battle of Yavin,[7] the High Command had transferred their headquarters to Admiral Ackbar's flagship Home One. When Rebel command learned that the Empire was building a second Death Star over the Forest moon of Endor, they ordered the Alliance Fleet to assemble near the planet Sullust, where they planned the assault on the battle station.[4]

LegacyEdit

With the Galactic Empire's defeat at the Battle of Endor,[4] the Alliance was reorganized into the New Republic.[12] The Alliance High Command accordingly transitioned into the Republic Command.[8]
