"The Empire has a legion of loyal soldiers that are in endless supply."
- Darth Vader
"Under extreme conditions even the most incompetent soldier will perform above and beyond the call of duty if pushed in the right direction."
- Grand Admiral Thrawn
Stormtroopers are the elite shock troopers of the Galactic Empire. Reminders of the Emperor's power, extensions of his will, and a method of keeping the Empire's thousands of star systems in line through fear. The first Stormtroopers were Clone Troopers that survived the Clone Wars, however they were gradually replaced by individuals recruited or conscripted from throughout the Empire.
Soldiers of the Empire focuses on a single unit of Stormtroopers, Telemechus, Jax, Banack, Rolan, Nate and Bindle, as they pursue the objectives of their orders and navigate their way through the Imperial bureaucracy. The story, while following the canon of the Star Wars universe as best it can, is set in a parallel universe where events have taken slightly different directions and people have made slightly different choices.
