Just wanted to start a thread where we could start compiling links to articles and resources detailing the new Disney canon for the period between Return of the Jedi and The Force Unleashed.

I'll try to keep this first post updated, I guess, with a bare-bones timeline.


TIMELINE OF EVENTS (in Disney canon):

Battle of Endor - Palpatine and Vader killed, many Imperial ships destroyed

Crackdown on many Imperial worlds.  Many sector Moffs declare martial law, and cut their territories off from the larger Galaxy.

Battle of Jakku - Grand Moff rallies Imperial forces for an offensive.  He seeks a victory mostly for propaganda purposes.  He chooses the backwater Jakku for the showdown.  The New Republic goes all in, and with superior tactics, wins the day.  Multiple Star Destroyers - and, by Disney canon's reckoning, the last Executor-class Star Dreadnought (a.k.a., Super Star Destroyer) - are lost in the battle.

The Galactic Concordance - Imperial remnants, reeling from their defeat, sign peace treaty and mutual disarmament pact with the New Republic.  They agree to remain in their sphere of influence (The Core and Inner Rim), but relinquish control of Coruscant to the New Republic.  They agree to non-aggression in future, and formally pledge to renounce torture.  Imperial academies are to be shut down, and stormtrooper recruitment is to cease.

The New Republic disarms itself, and the re-formed Senate is set to meet on a different member world, each session.  Coruscant is abandoned as the galactic capital.

Dark Side Force-users and "evil" Imperials withdraw to the Unknown Regions, seeking Palpatine/Vader artifacts, secrets, and power.  One of these groups is the nascent First Order, which quickly begins violating the terms of the Concordance.

Leia, afraid of the growing threat posed by these evil Imperials (especially the so-called First Order), forms a private military force, called The Resistance, to fight against them.  The Republic gives tacit approval, but is wary of antagonizing the First Order.  They do not officially condone the Resistance fighters.

A list of some pretty consequential bits of information, gleaned from the new Visual Dictionary for TFA: http://www.geek.com/news/the-most-important-things-left-out-of-star-wars-the-force-awakens-are-in-this-book-1642939/

A timeline of all new canon, with links to more in-depth articles, and the source material listed: http://www.theverge.com/2015/12/16/10215194/star-wars-the-force-awakens-guide-canon

Intersting. The galactic disarmament is such a complete departure from how Legends played out...which, frankly, is okay considering Legends got to the point of just being endlessly recycled wars as every sub-set of books had to one-up what came before but failed to bring much of anything truly original to the canon.

Actually, the whole disarmament thing turns out - surprise! - to be a sham. The Visual Dictionary refers to First Order weapons as coming from Sonn-Blas, a joint shell company spun off from Merr-Sonn and BlasTech.

I think, given that TFA is set 30 years out, if we set ourselves (and this is a conversation better had elsewhere) at least 11 years after Endor (Thrawn plus Plague stuff plus time we last worked together), we could get in on the outset of this era yet still allow for wiggle room to be one of the many splinter groups.

I would totally be fine with a Thrawn angle as well. Guy never wanted to run the Empire anyway, he'd be best left consolidated enough force to pick at the edges, striking where and when he wanted to.
