This government existed only one month before the formal creation of the New Republic, yet made some important steps forward for the fledgling government. It first defeated the Ssi-ruuk at Bakura, for the first time fighting along Imperial forces against a common foe. Though, the temporary alliance was fragile and marred with suspicion on both sides, it was an important symbolic move for the Alliance.
To cement the gains made at the Battle of Endor, the First Conference of Free Peoples was convened to tackle many of the issues relating to internal governance and the formation of a more permanent body; the New Republic.
In this intervening period, the Alliance also had to contend with other hostile forces threatening to tear it apart. Grumblings from a number of member worlds over the leadership style led to a conference on Kabray, resolved by the swift action of Princess Leia and her Zeltron aides. The Hiromi Empire also tried to spilt them from within, using an inside agent Hirog to create war between two member species, the Ewoks and the Lahsbee. This could have caused a civil war if the Alliance members had been forced to take sides, but fortunately this also was averted.
During this same period, the Alliance also had to contend with a Nagai-led coalition of Maccabree warriors and Imperial loyalists. After a fierce battle over Endor, resulting in a nominal victory only for the Alliance, they evacuate Endor and once again moved their capital. After further encounters with the Nagai at Iskalon and Trenwyth, a confusing battle on Zeltros occurred. The Hiromi, Nagai and the hitherto unknown Tofs all separately invaded. In an extraordinary turn of events, the Tofs were repelled by a combined force of Alliance troops, Hiromi, Nagai and their Imperial supporters at the Battle of Saijo. Both the Hiromi Empire and the Nagai would go on to join the Alliance.
The worlds which sent representatives to the Alliance council on the Forest Moon of Endor were not all yet liberated from the Galactic Empire. Some of them were not liberated until after the formation of the New Republic, and others, such as Ryloth and Corellia, chose not to join the New Republic after gaining independence from the Empire, instead choosing isolationism. Despite this, the Alliance of Free Planets provided an important stage in the development of the galaxy-spanning New Republic.
