I personal see the fragmentation of the sith by the end of the game as the beginning of the New Sith Wars. For those who are unfimilar with the expanded universe of star wars, the New Sith Wars was a sort of dark age of fighting between the republic and the varies sith "kingdoms".

But the New Sith Wars has a very specific beginning ina very specific situation in the EU lore, and it's not for thousands of years.

Once the republic achieves total victory as it seems fated to do, they will get access to Imperial ship design plans, shipyards and personnel, realizing the imperial fleet is stronger from a technical point of view, the republic eventually decides to adopt imperial shipbuilding designs and models to better the republic fleet.

Similar cases have happened many, many times in our history, there is no reason the same didn't happen in SW
Darth Securos - Dark Lord of the Sith
Captain Galen Sunlighter - Just a simple man making his way on the galaxy
Agent Keldran Reus - "Corellian ale, shaken not stirred"

My theory is that the cold war will erupt into an actual war between the empire and republic at the outer rim

what are you talking about? The cold war ended in between Act 2/3 in a full out war. Did you even pay attention to the story?

this bothers me as well. People in the lore forums have made many posts that make it obvious that they either never played to act 3 or didn't pay any attention.

HEY, PEOPLE, the war is full on after Hoth. By the time you land on Belsavis for the first time, the peace is over.

Yeah, that's more likely. Rebellion is the only way for the Sith Empire to fall apart from within. There were a couple key moments in SWTOR in which members of the Sith Empire don't conform to the Emperor's will.

1) Scourge and Darth Nyriss. Nyriss was branded a traitor, therefore leaving the rest of the Dark Council from the Revan novel executed. Scourge still had the knowledge from Nyriss, and betrayed Revan and Meetra Surik in order to protect his cover. He then saw the vision of the Jedi Knight killing him and aided him.

2) Jaesa Willsaam. In the dark-sided version of Jaesa Willsaam's companion story, she says there were some light-sided Sith that broke away from the Sith Empire she wanted to kill.

More likely, once the Emperor's true plan has come to light, the Sith Empire will be fearful before rebelling. As much as those loyal to the Emperor respect him, they also fear him. The Sith Emperor is the most powerful being in the Sith Empire; without his people, he's nothing. Scourge was the first spark of rebellion in the Sith Empire.

PS: Hopefully Revan and the Sith Emperor battle it out again, this time Revan more powerful than he was when he fought the Sith Emperor.

It more or less will. It's basically like an interpretation of what would've happened if WWIII was initiated during the Cold War.

Anyhow, more or less, there will be another devastating war between the Republic and Sith Empire. The Republic and Sith Empire have already built doomsday weapons ("missiles that darken suns, shields that envelop planets")(ie: Hammer Station, Desolator, more or less more doomsday weapons)

Hopefully, 1) Revan will return to aid the Republic war effort against the Sith Empire and 2) the class stories expand with Chapter Four, Five and Six.
