Despite witnessing Palpatine's rise to power and the brutal creation of the New Order, Bail Organa continues to represent Alderaan in the Galactic Senate while quietly working to undermine the Emperor's power. Without openly joining the resistance, he covertly aids subversive elements fighting Imperial tyranny, even finding and aiding refugee Jedi. Toward the end of The Dark Times, he eventually works with Mon Mothma to form the basis for The Rebel Alliance.
Throughout this period, Organa openly professes loyalty to the Empire. Although this strategy helps maintain the illusion that the Imperial Senate actually has influence over galactic affairs, it keeps him in a position to work within the bureaucracy and behind the scenes to aid the nascent resistance movements sprouting up across the galaxy.
Organa uses connections in the Senate to secretly oppose Palpatine's broad policies and several specific operations. When he learned of the Emperor's plot to assassinate Corellian Senator Garm Bel Iblis, Organa dispatched an Alderaanian agent to warn him; the Senator escaped the bomb, but the explosion killed his family and sent him into hiding to form his own resistance group and later organize clandestine military operations against Imperial targets. Through his position and contacts, Organa gained foreknowledge of the Emperor's decision to arrest Chandrilan Senator Mon Mothma for treason as an example to others; a bodyguard spirited her to safety ahead of the ISB agents sent to arrest her. While in hiding, both Garm Bel Iblis and Mon Mothma work with Organa through secret channels to form the foundation of what would become The Rebel Alliance.
Organa uses his political position to covertly aid resistance groups, particularly those in The Core Worlds. Using a network of diplomatic operatives, he quietly leaks useful information to planetary rulers, dissidents in hiding, and insurgent fighters who might employ that information against the Emperor's plans. Organa also does what he can to secretly aid those who are fleeing Imperial persecution, particularly outlaw jedi. He helps Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi escape from Coruscant in the wake of Palpatine's betrayal. When Organa or his agents find a Jedi in need, they offer what aid they can and attempt to hide the Jedi, either by using a carefully concealed location or by creating a new identity; for instance, Organa finds one Jedi a job as one of his personal advisors under the guise of the Trustant of the Caamasi Remnant on Alderaan.
Organa encourages Garm Bel Iblis and Mon Mothma in their efforts to establish a galaxywide resistance movement, though he spends much time fostering a balance between the two dynamic and often obstinate personalities. Toward the end of The Dark Times, they meet in secret with other representatives to sign the Corellian Treaty, forming a loose union of resistance groups that would become The Rebel Alliance. Organa's best hope remains his daughter Leia, whom he adopted after the death of her mother, Padmé Amidala. During The Dark Times, he and a close group of tutors (Including Sabé Reccen) raise Leia and train her in both the diplomatic arts and the broad-minded thinking necessary to bring the galaxy out from beneath the Empire's oppressive boot.

Noted as one of the principal architects of the Rebellion, Bail Organa- the adopted father of Leia Organa- long championed the cause of freedom and was a staunch supporter of democracy. At first, Bail Organa was one of Chancellor Palpatine's close allies, for both were disgusted by the stagnancy pervading the Galactic Senate, but as Palpatine's power grew and the Senate's role waned, Organa's suspicions and fears came to the forefront. His association with his former ally weakened, and soon he became Palpatine's active opponent, fighting against the formation of the Clone Army and later against Palpatine's naked grabs for power. It was during this time that Bail Organa joined forces with the Jedi High Council, many members of which shared Organa's concerns about the Clone Wars and Palpatine's growing strength
In the end, Bail Organa's efforts and those of his allies, Mon Mothma and others, failed and The Galactic Empire was born. Organa continued to serve in the Senate, hoping to bring about change from within. The Emperor would eventually force his hand as the cruelties and evil of the Empire grew unchecked. After the Empire wiped out hundreds of protestors, Bail Organa was resolved to topple the regime and helped form the Alliance to Restore the Republic, which eventually became known as The Rebel Alliance.
