Despite equally-sized forces, Imperials were able to take advantage of their superior technology and destroy the last Rebel stronghold on Talus.
Imperials forces are now camped on the outskirts of Nashal, with an offensive to conquer the city surely in the very near future. Winning the city would mean taking total control of the Core World planet. Rebel generals are confident they can beat back the Empire and re-establish a defensive position outside the city.
With Talus being the spark, Imperial and Rebel armies are building up across the galaxy as they fight for control of each planet one-by-one.
Reports have flooded HoloNet of troops and resources flooding Yavin IV and Rori. Most experts agree those two planets will see open fighting next.
