I'd like to see him completely unable to rule because he's an immature baby with godlike powers and zero self control.

Also, because he's surrounded by utter fuckwits like Hux.

Really, I expect Hux will kill Kylo in the same way Thrawn was killed by the Nogri.
You can only kick a dog so long before you get bit.

Then there's the missing Knights of Ren....or we're those the Pretorian Guard?
Probably not but...there seems a resemblance in their outfits.

I'd also like some insight into Snoke- maybe with Kylo Ren looking for whatever made him so casually powerful.
(Moron though he was)

They buy ship designs.

That's not the impression I got. The entire context of the gambling planet and the codebreaker's revelation was that both the FO and the Resistance were actively buying ships and weapons. Not the designs for them. When you want to buy a gun from a gun seller, that gun seller isn't selling you blueprints on how to build the gun. He's selling you the gun. Because if he sold you the blueprints, then he'd be out of a job because you now know how to build the gun yourself and don't need him anymore.

Possibly for the Resistance, you're right- but the Essential Cutaways book shows the Supremacy to be a giant mobile factory- even manufacturing Star Destroyers!
I can't imagine why they'd outsource fighter manufacturing with that kind of capability.

But it DOES make perfect sense for the Resistance to buy what they need.
Maybe even for the New Republic to do so- to keep powerful commerce concerns from defecting completely to the FO side.

Really though,it seemed to me that the wealthy were playing with sides against each other to cash in.

Somewhere, Eisenhower approves of that message.
