Separate Edit

Not sure why the two articles should be separate from each other... the "conflict" was always a war of sorts, and it's now evolved into open warfare. I think a simple renaming of the previous article would suffice. Reddyredcp (talk) 19:53, September 10, 2017 (UTC)

  • I agree, it seems unnecessary to have two articles for the same thing. I think merging the pages onto this one seems the best option, unless anyone has any real objections? --Lewisr (talk) 19:54, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
    • I think that he tried to do something similar to Early rebellion against the Galactic Empire and the Galactic Civil War, but in this case I don't see the difference. The resistence was always public about engaging the FO--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 20:04, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
      • the Early rebellion against the Galactic Empire was a conflict that escalated into open warfarce in the GCW. so why shouldn't the same be with the First Order-Resistance conflict and the First Order-Resistance war, the conflict escalated into a full scale war as well.Jkirk8907 (talk) 20:08, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
        • What would could do is merge them together and in the prelude make it about the current First Order Resistance conflict page and the middle part of the page be about the open war between the two, I just don't see the real need to have two separate pages --Lewisr (talk) 20:12, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
        • Alright I'm on board with that Jkirk8907 (talk) 20:16, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
          • Sources said that the GCW started with the battle of Scarif, yet there were conflicts prior to that, thus the need for a separate page. Here, we don't have an official start date or name, so I think merging the two is a good idea.--D9328 (talk) 21:40, September 10, 2017 (UTC)d9328
  • I don't think it's necessary to have two different articles. It hasn't been stated if they're two separate conflicts, such as the Galactic Civil War and the conflicts before it. In that case it was clear that they were two separate conflicts, one leading to the other. That is not the case for the conflicts between the First Order and Resistance. Thus it should remain as one article.--Vitus Infinitus (talk) 01:38, September 11, 2017 (UTC)

New Republic?Edit

Should the new Republic be listed as an combaten? I know that their lost a lot of leadership on Hosnian. But that didn't stop the Empire when the first death star blowed up. Or when the second blowed up. And may add Imperiel high command first death star, and Palpatin and Vater was on the second. Unsigned comment by RC-0407 (talk • contribs).

New galactic war Edit

Just thought I'd throw this out there: DJ's Databank entry calls this conflict the "new galactic war." - AV-6R7Crew Pit 22:23, May 2, 2018 (UTC)

  • Here's the full context: ""When Finn objected, DJ showed the former stormtrooper that the Libertine's owner was an arms dealer supplying both sides of the new galactic war". In that light, it's being used as a descriptive phrase rather than a name. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:29, May 2, 2018 (UTC)


It was brought to my attention that the war may be named as "The New Conflict" in Star Wars: On the Front Lines. On page 126, in the "Timeline of Battles," there are three colored sections. The first one, which is blue and titled "The Clone Wars," includes the birth of Anakin, Battle of Naboo, Separatist Crisis, and battles of the Clone Wars. The second, in yellow, is the "Galactic Civil War," and includes Mon Mothma's resignation from the Senate in 2 BBY and the key battles, such as Scarif, Yavin, Hoth, Endor, and Jakku. The next and final one, is in red and is titled "The New Conflict," and includes Leia's resignation from the Senate and the Battle of Starkiller base. It could be a name for the cold war or the First Order-Resistance war, or it could just be a placeholder and unofficial name. Let me know what you guys think.--Vitus InfinitusTalk 20:41, June 25, 2018 (UTC)

  • It's definitely not the actual name of the conflict. It's just a section heading. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:51, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
