In Thrawn Trilogy Dark Force Rising Bel Iblis says
"There were times," Bel Iblis agreed. "I'll admit to having been extremely disappointed when you were dismissed from the Imperial Academy—you'd shown considerable promise there, and I felt at the time that a strongly loyal officer corps was one of the few defenses the Republic still had left against the collapse toward Empire." He shrugged. "Under the circumstances, it's just as well that you got out when you did. With your obvious disdain for authority, you'd have been quietly eliminated in the Emperor's purge of those officers he hadn't been able to seduce to his side. And then things would have gone quite differently, wouldn't they?"
"Maybe a little," Han conceded modestly. He glanced around the war room. "So how long have you been here at-you called it Peregrine's Nest?"
Where can i find more information about this Emperor's purge? Srini 04:19, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
I'd imagine that doesn't refer to a specific event, but rather a Stalin-esque Great Purge thing. --Imperialles 05:43, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Has this purge been mensioned some ware else.
I agree with Imp. Bel Iblis probably means an ongoing crackdown on political undesirables. Since they were getting rid of disloyal officers at the beginning of the Empire in 19 BBY, and Han joined up in 10 BBY. -LtNOWIS 08:03, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
