In Rise of Skywalker, the Resistance and the free worlds of the galaxy joined forces against the First Order. The massive fleet that appeared in the Battle of Exegol has been stated to be piloted mostly by civilians. Despite their lack of military experience, the pilots of this fleet came to Exegol declaring in one voice, “The oppression of the Sith will never return!” For the first time since the Galactic Civil War, the people of the galaxy was united against a common enemy and won! With the Sith and the Empire permanently defeated, the victorious Resistance and their allies must now strive to rebuild the galaxy. They will definitely learn from the mistakes of the New Republic. The reason the New Republic fell is because they underestimated and ignored the First Order and Imperial remnants until it was too late. Now, the new galactic government will not repeat those mistakes with the surviving remnants of the First Order. In Legends, the New Republic was replaced with the Galactic Alliance. Perhaps that is what’s going to happen in the aftermath of Rise of Skywalker.
