WHAT IF the Empire won the Battle of Yavin??

Real talk. What if the Empire won in Star Wars Episode 4? How would life change for the average resident of the Wanderhome Galaxy? What planets were they planning to blow up next? What if they blew up Nar Shadda and Nal Hutta the next day to put down the Hutt Cartels HARD, what would be the political implications and how would it effect the Galactic Shadow Economy and shit?

What were Emperor Palpatine and his slaves Darth Vader and Moff planning to do following an Empire Victory at The Battle of Yavin with the technological terror they constructed? Thoughts?

        >A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... The events and players are very familiar but something isn't quite right. Luke Skywalker valiantly attacks the Death Star, fires his torpedoes -- and they miss their mark! Welcome to a Star Wars you never imagined, a Star Wars shattered, a Star Wars where the possibilities are ENDLESS!

    Life wouldn't change, because the empire was already in power. If anything life would improve because of peacetime

    Nothing would have changed for the average Joe and Stacy. Empire was shitty as fuck but then New Republic was just as shitty, perhaps even worse. Imagine having Mon Mothma and the coke head Princess Leia calling the shots while promoting the Jedi scum. Palpie was the lesser of 2 evils.

    Reminder that the only "evil" we see the Empire do is punish rebels/traitors/terrorists, remove aliens scum from positions of power, and put an end to a child indoctrinating death cult. inb4 Alderaan apologists. Stay out of the kitchen if you don't wanna get burned.

        Peace, prosperity and future security against the Vong. There is no real way to see the Empire as "the problem" in the galaxy. What have they done outside of the context of a bloody civil war that is so bad?

        but garden gnomes and people brainwashed by gnomish propaganda say the same thing about 3rd reich.

              Yes. Hiroshima was the headquarters for the Japanese second army. Nagasaki was home to the Mitsubishi shipyards.

                Alderan was infact sympathetic to the rebellion, was feeding them supplies and housed key member of the rebel high command. If Hiroshima is justified then so was Alderan.

            Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the same situation as Alderan. A military adjacent target full of civilians that was ultimately about terrifying the enemy into submission with wonder weapons of mass destruction. America always was the great Satan.

                Correct. Destroying Alderaan was no different than bombing some Taliban cave.

                Not really more akin to Dresden, Hiroshima, or Nagasaki but we still mostly agree. The cave lacks the collateral damage and is actually about physical removal of certain individuals rather than a terrifying demonstration of wunderwaffe on a large populated area meant to spread fear.

                True enough. I think people get held up on Alderaan being an entire planet but they forget to take the galactic scale into account,

              In total war there are no civilians. Anything or anyone that can contribute to your enemy's ability to wage war is a legitimate target.

    The Empire wouldnt need to blow any planets up because after Alderaan and Yavin they could have just shown the footage and shown off the deathstar to the galactic society and be like if you give us any trouble we will park the Deathstar in orbit of your planet and if in a week you people dont root out the rebels we will destroy the capital city, after 3 weeks if you have not destroyed the rebels we will blow your planet up.

    Basically no one would dare rebel because of the implication of the deathstar but there should be at least one incident where they destroy the capital city and capture the terror of the people being able to see this super weapon orbiting their planet and fire on them, then you show off the civilians working with storm troopers and maybe even a friendly darth vader to root out the rebels while portraying the rebels as a group who blackmail and corrupt the local government for the sake on enriching themselves.

    The Imperial media could construe the Alderaan destruction as that it was a massive secret rebel base for years and the royalty had spent decades creating a plot to murder palpatine and take over, they could then explain that the deathstar is not a tool for tyranny but a tool for order and safety as the galactic empire needs to be united against potential external threats like the Yuzhan Vong.

    Quite frankly if Return of the Jedi happened in a realistic setting its likely that most of the people in the galaxy would be heavily brainwashed into hating the rebels and likely join the military to wipe them out

    the empire was still unaware of the weak point in the death star so if at least one rebel could escape from yavin 4™ they could spread this info among the remaining rebels and try to destroy it in a covert op

    are star destroyers better than death stars? they literally destroy stars. is this a design flaw or safeguard to prevent the death star from turning on them by having star destroyers to counter it?
