Thanks to the GMU the FEA continues to grow in influence. Come 19 ABY, not counting its own contributing forces, the Echan were worth 1/8th the New Republic forces.
25-29 ABY - New Jedi Order era
The Yuuzhan Vong arrival thrust the Free Echani Alliance into the limelight by virtue of the actions of their ancient rivals - the Mandalorians. When the Mandalorians sided with the Yuuzhan Vong, the New Republic took advantage of their old enmity to create the impression that the Echani and Mandalorians were fighting a private war. The Yuuzhan Vong thus left Eshan to Fett, as it suited their ends to weaken the Mandalorians slowly. This deception eventually culminated in a long battle between Eshan and Mandalore, running for two long years, and killing dozens on both side. It was an impromptu proxy war, which the New Republic were willing to play. It placed tension on Echani-Coruscanti relations, especially when the Yuuzhan Vong intervened at an atypical raid during the Peace of Duro, destroying a third of the Echani fleet - and Borsk Fey'lya refused to send any assistance which would have recovered hundreds of escape pods and saved thousands of Echani.
The Echani later launched a massive offensive on Mandalorian space, taking advantage of the lack of Yuuzhan Vong forces their to act as a lure for Yuuzhan Vong forces. The battle group at Obroa-Skai withdrew, allowing Hapan-Republic forces to crush the worldship of the Supreme Overlord.

The Echani keep to themselves for the next decade, attempting to recover from their losses during the war. When the Second Galactic Civil War breaks out the Echani refuse to send any ships to aid the GFFA, simply sending a copy of Fey'lya refusing to send assistance as their response. Following the War the Echani began having increasing relations with the Empire, leading to more and more income and productivity. Come 80 ABY the Echani are, economically the same as they were before the Vong war, however their military power was just now recovering from the war. Between 80 and 90 ABY the strained relations between the GFFA and Echani slowly begin to mend, but it would only last a short while.
100 ABY - Legacy Era
The Force Cold War shattered relations between the GA and Eshan. When a Sith assumed the title of "Darth Mikaru", the GA military, responding simply because it couldn't do anything else, blockaded FEA and allied worlds with the Third and Fifth Fleets. When practically every major system was hit by a wave of baradium attacks, of which even the FEA was hit, apart from those of the Alliance, the GA reacted with little evidence. The subsequent bloodshed severed relations between the GA and FEA, and the Echani continued their genetic projects (Project Nox) without Jedi supervision - having their own issues as they struggled to control their experiments, occasionally.
101-120 ABY - Legacy Era
The FEA grew closer to the Empire, which began to take more contracts as the Echani refused to accept GA ones. The Imperial Knights assist the project, donating their experience with the Blue Sun project they'd used against the Dominion of Darkness. By the time GA relations began to normalize, the Empire took up more than 70% of FEA contracts. It was difficult to undo that - and the Echani saw little need to. Shipyards began to be converted to create Pellaeon Star Destroyers, even as Mikaru Shipwrights took a private contract for new experimental fighters and assault ships - a massive contract which required utmost secrecy, according to the client. With that, the FEA could not take advantage of the new battle cruiser contracts - but they began to spread their influence so that they may.
121 ABY - Legacy Era
The Sovereign, Council of Elders, and Council of High Arbiters commission the "Pellaeon Project". Weapon and shield designs taken from the plans the FEA were using to construct Imperial Pellaeon Star Destroyers were used to refit the FEA's aging Bellator-class Star Battlecruisers. The project also included he construction of a new Flagship, the Ark of Truth. A Pellaeon-class Star Destroyer armed with Echani thermonuclear missiles and 4 of their 46cm Asynchronous Linear-Induction Cannons.
121-126 ABY - Legacy Era
The return of the Yuuzhan Vong to the galaxy made FEA relations strained again, and when the Ossus Project devastated a hundred worlds it completely severed them; the FEA were firmly in the Imperial camp even if they didn't want to be. The Yuuzhan Vong had destroyed a hundred worlds, and the GA had sided with them; it was not to be peace.
127 ABY - Legacy Era
The first six months of the Sith-Imperial War were full of light skirmishes between Imperial and Alliance forces, with very few casualties. It wasn't until the Battle of Taris that the war truly broke out, and the complete defeat of the GA there. But in those six months economic resources were funneled away from Eshan, and their isolation deep in GA space meant their yards were slowly worn down. The GA began launching raids on the FEA systems, giving them notice beforehand but nonetheless advancing with entire fleet groups - the Third, Fifth and Eighth proceeded to batter the Echani into submission - but they refused to surrender, managing to keep them away from their primary systems. The expansion of the war following the engagement at Taris meant those fleets were dispatched elsewhere, and the Imperial Ninth Fleet joined the war proper. The Echani were given time to recover, relying on Imperial assistance initially but diversifying as the Jedi slowly pushed the Empire back to Bastion.
