If you think you are ready, below is everything you need to know on how to rebel against the Imperium in Stellaris.
How to Start a Rebellion Against the Imperium
To start a rebellion against the Imperium you must start espionage missions against them. Use an envoy for the task, they’ll create a spy network. The process is the same as other espionage missions but this time you are going after the Imperium.
You will need to complete extra operations including weakening their grip on other empires and triggering a rebellion.
Once you have enough intel and a ton of assets and resources, you can select the Spark Rebellion option. This option works the same way as other espionage options as well but once this is done, you will be able to trigger a mass rebellion against the Imperium.
You can then go after many of the Imperium’s allies and then finally, the Imperium itself. You will need plenty of warships and factions that consider you an ally in Stellaris.
And that’s everything you need to know on how to start a rebellion in Stellaris. Need more help? See how to increase influence.
