Why The Rebel Alliance Fleet Is Being Decommis-sioned In The Mandalorian
Spoiler Warning!
This story contains spoilers for Season 3, Episode 3 of "The Mandalorian," entitled "The Convert."
In Season 3, Episode 3 of "The Mandalorian," entitled "The Convert," Dr. Penn Pershing learned that the New Republic was not only decommissioning the Empire's assets but also reducing the Alliance Fleet. This revelation left many fans puzzled, wondering about the reasons behind this decision.
The New Republic, under Mon Mothma's leadership, passed the Military Disarmament Act to show that they didn't want to rule with force as the Empire did. So, the senate decided to slash the Alliance fleet to only 10% of its size, just enough to keep the peace and train local militias to handle problems in their sectors.
Although the Disarmament Act was established with the best intentions and maintained peace in the galaxy for 30 years, it allowed the remnants of the Empire to retreat to the unknown spaces and become the First Order. Senator Leia Organa feared this could happen, so she established the Resistance to protect the galaxy.
