I don't know where you got that from but all sources have stated the Battle of Jakku is a year after Endor. Aftermath, Lost Stars, Battlefront, Visual Dictionaries all date Jakku to 5 ABY.

As for Gideon, we don't know how much of a regional power he is. He could control several systems, but that doesn't make him a major power in the galaxy. It's possible he controls a sector even, but I doubt he's a Warlord like Zsinj for example.

Also, Bloodline and Before the Awakening both established that several NR senators were covert members or supporters of the First Order. Bloodline is pretty much the tale of a successful FO plot to turn Leia from an admired figure to a political pariah. With FO sympathizers comfortably present in the NR government while their most powerful opponent has been exiled from it, is it any surprise that the NR was easily duped?

So do I, not really sold on that B-Wing, though.

For one thing, it seems to have fewer guns.
Got rid of the sig, it was upsetting me.

Said it in another thread a while ago, the FO TIE Bomber is gorgeous.

Just like with the Resurgent-class, the First Order saw what was wrong with the original iteration (let' face it, the Imperial TIE Bomber is probably the worst ship in all of Star Wars), and improved it, and turned it into a lethal ship.
