Though Imperial Intelligence's central organization was largely gutted, individual agents and analysts continued their operations in the following decades providing information and services for the various Warlords, Moffs, Heads of State, and other leaders of the Imperial Remnant. Its size and strength returned under the Fel Empire and the later New Galactic Empire.
