What exactly is meant when we use the term post-Imperial? What was considered the end of the Empire? The formation of the Imperial Remnant? The article on the Empire says that it died with Xandel Carivus, but was later ressurected by Daala, eventually becoming the Imperial Remnant under Pallaeon. The reason I ask is that several articles use the term post-Imperial, and I'm not so sure it should be used in them. For example, tha article about Zsinj claims he was a post-Imperial warlord, but the Empire was still around and actually worked with the New Republic to try to hunt him down.--Darth Oblivion 17:48, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

  • I don't think 'post-Imperial' should be used at all, since the Empire existed in one form or another from 19 BBY until the end of as-of-yet known Star Wars history, 140 ABY-ish. Therefore, there is not yet a truly 'post-Imperial' era. --Thetoastman 23:23, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
  • What article is this in? Post-Endor may be a better fit. -Finlayson 00:20, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
  • As I said, the Zsinj article labels him as a post-Imperial warlord. The TIE series article has a list of "post-Imperial" TIEs. There's also Leia Organa Solo and House of Solo.--Darth Oblivion 01:19, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
    • In those articles, post-Imperial is generally used for the period after Endor when the Empire no longer controlled the Galaxy, i.e. New Republic era. -Finlayson 17:24, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
      • So what we're saying is it's really post-Palpatine. His original body, at least. --Thetoastman 21:29, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
  • The problem is that various official sources, both in- and out-of-universe, use the term "post-Imperial." For what it's worth, my very old Guide to the Star Wars Universe seems to use "post-Imperial" as meaning post-Endor (it also lists Endor as being the end of the Galactic Civil War).

I think post-Imperial means after Palpatine's Empire, and after all his clones had died.--Killik 15:02, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

I would assume it to be post-original-palpatine, and if not that, certainly post-Grand Admiral Thrawn. Feldmarschall 23:48, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
