I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

The Galactic Empire vastly outnumbers the United Federation of Planets. I mean, overwhelmingly outnumbers. In addition, they have the Dark Side of the Force. Emperor Palpatine could just use "Battle Meditation," and win basically any engagement he is presiding over.

numbers don't matter for jack squat. federation ships can attack from warp, the empire would never know when or where they were going to get hit, no cloaking tech required. a couple of galaxy class cruisers could strafe an entire fleet of star destroyers, blow their ass to bits and be long gone before the empire knew what hit them.
