Star Wars: The Holocron 4: The First Order

Welcome to the fourth installment of the Holocron, where we shall look at The First Order, who are revealed to be the next enemy of the New Republic. First off, allow me to say that this article may contain some spoilers for Star Wars Episode VII. By some, I mean that I will be bringing together the rumors and the full power of the internet, to try to crack this mysterious character.
In my last article, we took a look at Rey, one of the new Heroes in the Star Wars universe.


Now last warning of potential spoilers…Still with me? Good

Now the First Order is a military group inspired by the Galactic Empire.  The organization is led by a figure who has taken the title of Supreme Leader.  His name is Snoke, who we know to be at least the puppet master of Kylo Ren. The first order uses much of the same gear as the GE, Storm Troopers, Tie Fighters, and a brand new type of Star Destroyer.

The First Order employs the services of Force-sensitives, as Snoke is believed to be one, and Kylo Ren is one of the Knights of Ren.


In an interview recently:

“That all came out of conversations about what would have happened if the Nazis all went to Argentina but then started working together again? What could be born of that? Could The First Order exist as a group that actually admired The Empire? Could the work of The Empire be seen as unfulfilled? And could Vader be a martyr? Could there be a need to see through what didn’t get done?”

Will Snoke turn out to be the next emperor, where is the Order getting their storm troopers? I guess we will find out in December.
