Secrets of the Emperor and Snoke

In his quest for domination of the universe itself, the Emperor had many schemes and tools in play. The most visible and prominent was the Death Star. As his rule expanded, resistance inevitably arose which required his attention and delayed him from attaining true power.

It’s destruction was a devastating setback, but it was only one plan among many.

At first glance this may seem superfluous, why do we care what other people think? Give us stories from Luke’s point of view!
