    Maybe not, but the Supremacy, Snoke's ship was the roaming capital of the first order and its main manufacturing facility.

    The hyperspace ram not only destroyed that but most of their main fleet.

    I would assume a military force that reigned supreme would have a home planet or two instead of carrying everyone around the galaxy in a giant mobile space home but you can’t really make assumptions like that anymore.

    Star Wars Wiki and other sources say that it was the mobile command capital of the New Order, it contained ship yards, asteroid mining facilities, The First Order research labs, training facilities for Storm Troopers. It was a mobile capital crewed by 2.25 million fanatics.

    At the end of TLJ the first order and the resistance were both crippled.

    In the most Mary Sue thing of this trilogy, Rey is going to teach her self how to be a Jedi because she has the books. It’ll be hilariously ironic too because then fans will say “See! She’s not a Mary Sue anymore. She read the books and is trained now”

    The First Order was able to seemingly easily deploy a gigantic battering ram, numerous AT-ATs, and Kylo Ren's ship. I saw that hyperspace ramming as seemingly just buying time and preventing the FO from dealing the final blow immediately. It was badass but also was limited in the amount of damage it actually did.

    That wouldn't be surprising. After all, it's not very politically correct for a woman to learn everything that she knows from a man. It was a necessary evil, for plot and fan service purposes, for Rey to receive a head start from Luke, but it could be made up for by her completing her training all on her own because she's just that smart and gifted. Add to that that there's been no indication that Leia has received any formal training--instead, we're led to assume that her powers come merely from genetics and a little practice--and the message is shaping up to be that females can learn and hone their Jedi powers practically by themselves, where males need years of mentoring and training. That's the common problem with trying to show that females can do everything that males can: people tend to give the females the abilities without putting much effort into making them seem earned or otherwise believable, so it just ends up appearing that everything comes more easily to them than to male characters.

    Come to think of it, the likelihood that Rey will teach herself from the Jedi texts adds credence to the idea that a length of time will pass before the events of the third film. After all, Rey needs time to read those texts and practice. She's not going to speed read them over the weekend and emerge on Monday as a Jedi Knight. Then again, maybe I shouldn't put that past the writers. If she could raise a ton of boulders on minimal training and without even knowing that she could, it wouldn't be a stretch to imagine that she could absorb everything in a stack of textbooks in as little time as it takes to read them once.
