Imperial or Empire?


#1

I don’t know how I missed this before, but the name Imperial and Empire seems to be used interchangeably. The race is named Empire, but all of the ships are labeled Imperial.


#2

Well, the words are related to one another. Something “imperial” is, by definition, related to an empire.


#3

The temptation to rub this in is almost overwhelming :stuck_out_tongue:

Easy mistake if you’ve never come across the terms used in context before. Easiest analogy you might know; the Stormtroopers in Star Wars, who belong to the Empire, are referred to as Imperial Stormtroopers.

Thanks, that does explain it. I didn’t realize the words were directly related like that.
