Imagine, what if Palpatine (a.k.a. Darth Sideous) did NOT instruct Anakin Skywalker (a.k.a. Darth Vader) to use the Master Control Signal to shut down the Separatists' army of battle droids after Anakin/Vader slayed the members of the Separatist Council on the planet Mustafar. In this scenario, Palpatine wanted to prolong the Clone Wars another three or four more years in order to grant him an excuse to transform the Galactic Republic into the Galactic Empire. Remember, the clone troopers already had slayed most of the Jedi under Order 66 and Anakin already slayed the Jedi younglings in the Jedi Temple on the capital planet of Coruscant with the aid of the 501st Legion of clone troopers. I also assume Obi-Wan Kenobi still mortally wounds Anakin on Mustafar, and Skywalker is still rescued by Emperor Palpatine and ressurrected wit his black armor and mask and new cyborg body along with the use of the name of Darth Vader.

Meanwhile, the new Empire continues to fight the Confederacy of Independent Systems for another three or four more years while Vader continues to hunt down Jedi survivors.

By 16 or 15 BBY, the Galactic Empire and the Separatists sign a ceasefire, though the Imperial-CIS treaty requires the CIS government to aid the Imperials in hunting down Jedi. It must be noted the Known Galaxy is now divided into two main governments, though citizens of the galaxy are often uncertain which regime is the lesser of two evils (Palpatine's Empire is increasingly repressive, though the CIS is dominated by greedy corporations who sometimes engage in their own atrocities).

Thanks to the division of the galaxy into two major regimes, Palpatine lacks the resoures to build one Death Star battlestation, let alone two.

In 3 BBY, an Imperial decree of Palpatine's reorganizes the Imperial Senate by requiring senators to be appointed by COMPNOR.

In 2 BBY, various rebels groups in both Imperial and CIS space unite with Mon Mothma as their supreme civilian leader into the Alliance to Restore the Republic, or Rebel Alliance, to overthrow both the Galactic Empire AND the Confederacy of Independent Systems.

In 0 ABY, in the Battle of Yavin over and on the moon Yavin IV, a satellite of the gas giant planet Yavin, a joint force of Imperial and CIS forces sees the Rebels' X-wing and Y-wing fighters battle Imperial TIE fighters and CIS droid fighters while on the surface Imperial stormtroopers and CIS battle droids battle Rebel soldiers.

Under the leadership of Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and his new apprentice Luke Skywalker, the Rebel Alliance defeats it's foes.

In 3 ABY, on the icy planet Hoth, another joint Imperial-CIS taskforce led by Darth Vader, and composed of his flagship Executor, Imperial Star Destroyers, Banking Clan frigates, and Trade Federation battleships, actual defeat the Rebels and force them to evacuate their headquarters on Hoth.

Vader lures his son Luke Skywalker to the Cloud City on the planet Bespin, and captures him and sends him to the Imperial Palace on Coruscant.

In 4 ABY, the Rebel Alliance has relocated to the forest moon of the planet Endor, and this time, another joint Imperial-CIS taskforce, this time led personally by Emperor Palpatine, Vader, and Luke with the Executor as the flagship.

Above Endor, the Rebels' Mon Calamari cruisers, X-wings, Y-wings, A-wings, and B-wings battle the Executor, Imperial Star Destroyers, Imperial TIEs (including some of the new TIE interceptors) as well as CIS forces (droid fighters, Banking Clan frigates, and Trade Federation battleships).

At one point, shuttles land on the Endor moon with Imperial stormtroopers and walkers and various CIS droids, but the Rebel forces unleash a big surprise: the primitive Ewoks aid the Alliance forces and tie up many of the Imperial and CIS forces in the forests on the Endor moon.

Meanwhile, on the Executor, Luke convinces his father to turn from the dark side of the Force and the Empire. Together, father and son battle the Emperor and kill him, and escape on an Imperial shuttle and land on the Endor moon. However, Vader had been mortally injured by Palpatine's Force lightning, and dies.

The Imperial and CIS forces retreat from the Endor moon, leaderless.

In the wake of the Imperial-CIS defeat at Endor, the Rebel Alliance transforms into the New Republic.

The Galactic Empire divides into several rival, independent factions as the Imperial Army and Navy fragment, although the Confederacy of Independent Systems remains intact. The CIS and the New Republic both grow at the expense of the remains of the decaying Empire.

By 9 ABY, the Imperial factions reunite as the so-called Imperial Remnant under the Chiss Grand Admiral Thrawn and his second-in-command Captain Gilad Pellaeon. The Remnant opposes both the New Republic and the CIS. The Republic and CIS form an alliance against the resurgent Imperials, though Thrawn's military and political genius nearly topples both governments until late 10 ABY as Leia Organa Solo (daughter of Darth Vader and brother of Luke Skywalker) convinces the Noghri people to turn against the Imperials, and this results in Rukh, Thrawn's Noghri bodyguard, in assasinating the Grand Admiral.

For the next nine years, the Known Galaxy is the scene of a three-way political and sometimes military struggle between the New Republic, Imperial Remnant, and CIS. In 19 ABY, however, the three governments sign a peace treaty.

From 25 to 29 ABY, the Yuuzhan Vong invade from another galaxy armed with their living biotechnology, and it takes a combines effort of the new Jedi Order, New Republic (renamed the Galactic Alliance), Imperial Remnant (now calling itself the New Empire), and the CIS, as well as the living, intelligent, mobile rogue planet Zenoma Zekot to help defeat the Vong, with the Vong survivors settled on Zenoma Zekot.

By 40 ABY, the revival of the ancient Sith Order and the professional Mandalorian mercenaries is noticed, as well as the crowning of Jagged Fel as the new Emperor of the New Empire, with his Victory Without War program, based upon economic, social-welfare, educational, scientific, and technological aid to impoverished planets.
