Tales of the Jedi: The Fall of the Sith Empire 5: End of an Empire is the fifth issue in the Tales of the Jedi: The Fall of the Sith Empire story arc in the Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi series of comics. It was published on October 22, 1997 by Dark Horse Comics.
Featuring the historic confrontation between the Old Republic and the Empire, The Fall of the Sith Empire cannot end but with the victory of the Old Republic. But even winners have losses, and the Sith Empire walks away from this battle with a victory of its own… one which will later spell doom for the Old Republic.
As Naga Sadow's fleet returns to the Sith Empire, he is confronted by the presumed-dead Ludo Kressh, who had in fact sent a decoy ship to Khar Delba. Kressh declares himself the new Dark Lord of the Sith, but is soon killed when Sadow willingly crashes one of his ships into the hull of Kressh's flagship. As Empress Teta's fleet approaches, Sadow has Massassi on each of his ships kill the Sith Lords commanding them, creating a large barrier between the Dark Lord and Teta's fleet, and allowing Sadow to escape to Yavin IV, where he will spend the rest of his days, attempting to rebuild the once-great Sith Empire.
Meanwhile, on Koros Major, Odan-Urr discovers a Sith holocron in one of the Empire's abandoned ships, which he will use to create the Great Jedi Library on Ossus, and Jori Daragon becomes the new owner of Aarrba's repair dock.
