|Founded||Year 8 Day 343|
Black Nebula is considered by many to be the most dangerous pirate organization in the galaxy. Its members come from all walks of life which make it a particularly dangerous organization. It has often been called â€˜the black holeâ€™ because of its secrecy and knowledge. Every little detail is sucked in and stays there for ever. It has been credited with the theft of several ships that have seemingly disappeared. Interestingly parts of certain vessels of these vessels have came up on the black market for sale by Black Nebula members.
Black Nebula derives its name from an unstable Nebula in the unknown regions that helped found the organization. It is said that when Prard' Al Keyrek looked into the nebula as he passed he saw the galaxy in its entirety and he saw the corruption in the New Republic, He saw the hypocrisy of the Empire and he saw the boredom of Hapes and its isolation and he realized that the galaxy was corrupt and rotten and selfish. He saw that what was needed was honesty, So he founded the Black Nebula. It would become a monument to crime, theft, piracy and anger which he believed ruled the galaxy.
With those beliefs its members look to the organization as the true and just rulers of the galaxy. They do as others do but they are honest about it.

Black Nebula then exploded into the galaxy, completely stripping the Chiss Ascendancy Government to the bone and revealed themselves to the galaxy only hours later.
War with the New Republic
The most noteworthy of Black Nebula's actions was their war against a series of New Republic offensives into their territory.
Black Nebula claimed they were protecting their sovereign territory, while the New Republic insisted that the offensives were to liberate those worlds from a piratical regime.
Dissolution and Legacy
When its leader had grown weary of claiming to be pirates, they initiated a plan for reform.All Black Nebula assets and personnel were shifted to Telegron Rothani Shipworks, and TRS was eventually renamed into the Old Republic.Claiming to be survivors of Supreme Chancellor Drayson's dissolution of the Senate, they became the third political entity(other than the New Republic and the Galactic Empire) to lay claim as a successor of the Galactic Republic
The Galactic Alliance never accepted the reformation and both the Falleen Federation and New Republic led the GA in insisting that the former Pirate government had changed in name only. This would lead to increased tension between GA and the Old Republic(BN's successor) and eventually warfare.
