IFM-117-1 The Galactic Empire

The Declaration of a New Order:

Citizens of the civilized galaxy, on this day we mark a transition. For a thousand years, the Republic stood as the crowning achievement of civilized beings. But there were those who would set us against one another, and we took up arms to defend our way of life against the Separatists. In so doing, we never suspected that the greatest threat came from within.
The Jedi, and some within our own Senate, had conspired to create the shadow of Separatism using one of their own as the enemy's leader. They had hoped to grind the Republic into ruin. But the hatred in their hearts could not be hidden forever. At last, there came a day when our enemies showed their true natures.

The Jedi hoped to unleash their destructive power against the Republic by assassinating the head of government and usurping control of the clone army. But the aims of would-be tyrants were valiantly opposed by those without elitist, dangerous powers. Our loyal clone troopers contained the insurrection within the Jedi Temple and quelled uprisings on a thousand worlds.

The remaining Jedi will be hunted down and defeated! Any collaborators will suffer the same fate. These have been trying times, but we have passed the test. The attempt on my life has left me scarred and deformed, but I assure you my resolve has never been stronger. The war is over. The Separatists have been defeated, and the Jedi rebellion has been foiled. We stand on the threshold of a new beginning. In order to ensure our security and continuing stability, the Republic will be reorganized into the first Galactic Empire, for a safe and secure society, which I assure you will last for ten thousand years. An Empire that will continue to be ruled by this august body and a sovereign ruler chosen for life. An Empire ruled by the majority, ruled by a new constitution!

By bringing the entire galaxy under one law, one language, and the enlightened guidance of one individual, the corruption that plagued the Republic in its later years will never take root. Regional governors will eliminate the bureaucracy that allowed the Separatist movement to grow unchecked. A strong and growing military will ensure the rule of law.

Under the Empire's New Order, our most cherished beliefs will be safeguarded. We will defend our ideals by force of arms. We will give no ground to our enemies and will stand together against attacks from within or without. Let the enemies of the Empire take heed: those who challenge Imperial resolve will be crushed.

We have taken on a task that will be difficult, but the people of the Empire are ready for the challenge. Because of our efforts, the galaxy has traded war for peace and anarchy for stability. Billions of beings now look forward to a secure future. The Empire will grow as more planets feel the call, from the Rim to the wilds of unknown space.

Imperial citizens must do their part. Join our grand star fleet. Become the eyes of the Empire by reporting suspected insurrectionists. Travel to the corners of the galaxy to spread the principles of the New Order to barbarians. Build monuments and technical wonders that will speak of our glory for generations to come.

The clone troopers, now proudly wearing the name of Imperial stormtroopers, have tackled the dangerous work of fighting our enemies on the front lines. Many have died in their devotion to the Empire. Imperial citizens would do well to remember their example.

The New Order of peace has triumphed over the shadowy secrecy of shameful magicians. The direction of our course is clear. I will lead the Empire to glories beyond imagining.

We have been tested, but we have emerged stronger. We move forward as one people: the Imperial citizens of the first Galactic Empire. We will prevail. Ten thousand years of peace begins today.

IFM-117-3 Purpose of the Auxiliary Corps

The purpose of any Imperial combat unit is:

  • To fight and win any war or conflict where Imperial forces are deployed.
  • To deter any potential enemies of the Galactic Empire.
  • To dominate and destroy any enemy of the Galactic Empire.
  • To project the will of the Empire across all Imperial Territory.
  • To protect the legitimate ruler of the Galactic Empire from all threats.
  • To protect and support militarily any allies of the Galactic Empire.
  • To maintain the Security and Order guaranteed to Imperial Citizens by the Galactic Empire.
  • To route out and destroy any threats to that Security and Order.


The Stormtrooper Corps is no different in regards to the above duties, however there are also specific tasks required of a Stormtrooper unit:

  • To provide a rapid response and first strike capability against any threat.
  • To conduct peacekeeping and counterinsurgency operations deemed too dangerous for standard Imperial Army units.
  • To be skilled in Operations in any theatre or terrain, on land, water, in the air and in space.


The Auxiliary Corps differs from the standard Stormtrooper Corps in that, unlike normal Stormtrooper units which are made up mainly of Cloned Troopers augmented with Naturally Born Troopers, the Auxiliary Corps is primarily made up of Naturaly Born Troopers and the forces of understrength standard Stormtrooper units and other undeployed reserves.

IFM-117-4 The Duty of the Imperial Soldier

Although the days of the exclusively cloned army are behind us, the Imperial Stormtrooper must remember that they are the successors to the Clonetroopers and Stormtroopers that fought with great bravery and honour in defence of their Emperor and that when they wear their armour they represent all those that came before them and without whom the galaxy would be under the grip of the tyranny and evil of a corrupt Jedi regime.

It should also be remembered that the Stormtrooper Corps represent the public face of the Galactic Empire to the citizens of the galaxy and as such they are expected to perform their duty to the greatest of their ability and to follow the core ideals of the Galactic Empire:

Order
Justice
Security
Peace


It must be made clear, however, that any failure by an Imperal Stormtrooper will be seen by the citizens of the galaxy as a failure of the Galactic Empire and that the Galactic Empire will not allow any such incompetence or cowardice to take root within it's ranks.

As the elite shock troops of the Imperial Military, it falls to the Stormtrooper Corps to set an example to friend and foe alike as to what the most intensively trained and best equipped soldiers in the galaxy can do.

It is not enough to gain a victory over the enemy, they must be totally dominated.

Imperial Stormtroopers must also be able to perform the duties of all other branches of the Imperial Military when called upon, even under the most extreme conditions and the most barren environments, they must always remain diciplined and efficient no matter what stresses or fatigue they are put under and no matter what odds they face.

The Imperial Stormtrooper must be the best Soldier, Tactician, Engineer and Peacekeeper in the Galaxy.

Finally, the Imperial Stormtrooper must be totaly loyal to the Emperor and must carry out the orders of the Empire and it's Officers without question.
