What about Centralists? Is that better?
General reminder that Mandolorian season 2 is coming out in one month and will have a whole new host of continuity changes.
It would, and in some fanedit that involves these recontextualization would be nice to also include a change to Mando S2.

I don’t know what were they thinking when they went with “centrists” which is a different kind of political posture IRL.
Maybe they thought that since this is an entirely different universe, the terminology could be justified in being completely different? Even so, it clearly didn’t work.
For any version that keeps Starkiller Base, it should be stated that the First Order has fully seceded from the New Republic, becoming an independent state (because it could feel strange having the FO going from wanting to control the Republic to just go and destroy the Republic).
It could be a Taiwan/China situation. The civil war has kinda cooled down, and both sides sort of operate as separate entities despite claiming to be the only true government in control of the galaxy., with one entity having the Trump card of controlling Coruscant/Hosnian/whatever, that obviously being Leia’s faction, now becoming the Resistance. They make a ballsy power play and destroy the only thing the Resistance has going for them.
I don’t think it makes a ton of sense for the more pro-Republic faction to be the one seceding, though.
Armed with Imperial assets, the militaristic
FIRST ORDER is tightening its grip on
the galaxy in the name of security.
I’m a fan of them re-appropriating Imperial assets.
