A group of clone officers designed the training system to bring a soldier to the peak of their capabilities, years after the fact and after their heavy weapons were essentially gone. 3.2 million years after the creation of the Republic, the Republic was brought into the Galactic Civil War during the Clone Wars, and the Jedi went back in time to alter history. The Jedi were unsuccessful at changing the path of the Clone Wars, and the Republic is torn by a civil war, bringing the innocent youth into the war, and causing years of strife. The old Republic is not technically gone, but in order for the Rebellion to win, a new Republic has to be formed, and the war goes on.
The front lines of the war are no longer at Hypergate, but standing in its way are the results of the Power Within. That word is found throughout the galaxy. There are those who use the power, and those who resist. In the war are pirates, smugglers, bounty hunters, and people with dreams of grandeur. Everywhere there is fighting. In the midst of the war stands a young Clone that now leads a unit of the 501st Legion, consisting of junkers, blaster backweirers, star destroyers, AT-RT operators, and diplomats. Each of these groups has a reason for fighting. Each of these groups has differing opinions about what needs to be done. And when the time comes for them to fight on the front lines, they have differing views on how they go about that. But the one thing they all have in common, is that they don't go into battle looking to be shot at. They go into battle to survive, and to save their unit. The new Republic is one that will have to fight without heavy weapons. That's the last thing these units want to give up. The new Republic has to have a strong and well trained infantry.
After the picture breaking from the lightspeed jump began, some even attribute the Unfrost's ability to break the apparent solid object in two as the force. This is not the case; the Initiative scientists studied ways to stop a lightspeed jump as soon as the jump was made. They soon learned that the largest control element was the inertia of the object that was moving. So basically, what the ship disabled was a pilot, and the ship was still in perfect working order. The inertia of the bodies was still there, but the inertia of the physics of the ship hadn't changed. d2c66b5586
