Ten months after the Galaxial War started, Trivas decided that the current Sith government was inefficient in leading the war effort. He spent the next month preparing a network of supporters to install himself as the first Emperor of the Ni'novian Empire with the ability to pursue the war without need of debating or voting.

Trivas presented his plans to Lord Scyrone after garnering a significant amount of support eleven months after the War started. With the exception of a few minor changes, Scyrone and most of the Sith Council agreed. An Empire wide election was held and Trivas gained 77% of the vote and was confirmed the first Emperor of the Ni'novian Empire.
