The Second Galactic Civil War is the ongoing conflict in the Galaxy initially between Galactic Republic successor state the Galactic Empire and the opposing Rebel Alliance, the latter of which reformed during the conflict into the New Republic claiming continuity as the legitimate successor of the Galactic Republic.
The First Galactic Civil war had seen the Galactic Republic reformed into the Galactic Empire under self-proclaimed Emperor and former Admiral Hiram Drayson. Unlike the Republic, the Empire was by definition an autocratic state, with deeply entrenched anti-human prejudices as a result of over a decade of warfare, primarily between the human-dominated Core Worlds (the Empire's heartland) and the predominantly non-human Outer Rim.
While the Core Worlds and surrounds were reasonably under the new Empire's control, much of the rest of the galaxy fluctuated between various powers. During the chaos of the aftermath of the war, it was not uncommon for governments and other organisations to claiming vast swathes of territory, with most rising and falling without ever consolidating their tenuous foothold to power and influence. Eventually, three other groups established themselves as the other major players within the galaxy: the Black Sun criminal organisation, the Bounty Hunter Alliance, and the Rebel Alliance.
Unlike the more shadowy origins of the former, the Rebel Alliance was formed from remnant Republican loyalists who had opposed the transition to Empire. Originally a loose coalition of regional Republican resistance movements to Imperial rule, by Year -2 the movement had been unified under the command of Supreme Commander Jacen Lord. While there was not a formal declaration of war made, it is generally accepted that it was at this time that the Second Galactic Civil War commenced (or, the Galactic Civil War resumed, according to those scholars who present the First and Galactic Civil Wars as a single ongoing conflict).
