"GA Security has legal jurisdiction, those others have profit motive, and all we have is the fact that we're right."
―Luke Skywalker, after Valin Horn's capture

Galactic Alliance Security, also referred to as GA Security and GAS, was a security force for the Galactic Alliance located on Coruscant in 43.5 ABY. Security troopers wore blue armor and helmets, although in some instances they were given black riot armor. Galactic Alliance Security was also known to work with bounty hunters, including Dhidal Nyz, Vrannin Vaxx, Hrym Mawarr, and Zilaash Kuh.




A new crisis

Galactic Alliance Security became a major security force for the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances on Coruscant sometime after the Second Galactic Civil War. In 43.5 ABY, a Security force under the command of Captain Savar was sent to arrest Jedi Grand Master Luke Skywalker on charges of dereliction of duty for failing to prevent Jedi Knight-turned-Sith Lord Darth Caedus' fall to the dark side of the Force. The force also included three bounty hunters: Zilaash Kuh, Dhidal Nyz, and Hrym Mawarr. During the arrest, one of the troopers, Bessen, inadvertently opened fire on Skywalker, but the situation was brought back under control, and Skywalker was taken to a Galactic Alliance Security blockhouse. However, the Jedi was released soon after.[2]

Security forces led by Savar, and including bounty hunters Kuh and Kaddit, were later sent to capture Jedi Knight Valin Horn, who had gone on a destructive rampage through the galactic capital of Coruscant after a psychotic breakdown. Horn was captured by Skywalker, however, and Security forces attempted to force Skywalker to hand the fugitive over. Eventually an compramise was reached, and Horn was placed in the Mon Mothma Memorial Medical Center. However, after Skywalker's trial and exile, Horn was moved to the Jedi Temple.[2]

Security troopers were later issued a warrant for the arrest of Horn, and Captain Oric Harfard led several troopers, accompanied by Zilaash Kuh and the mercenary Vrannin Vaxx, to the Temple to arrest Horn. The Jedi Knight was then put on trial, encased in carbonite, and placed in the Armand Isard Correctional Facility, a Galactic Alliance prison.[2]

Jedi interventions

Security forces were later present during rogue Jedi Seff Hellin's attempt to free Horn from the Armand Isard Correctional Facility. Once again they employed the use of bounty hunters Kuh and Nyz, however, they were unable to capture Hellin, as he was caught by Darkmeld—a secret organization founded by Jedi Knight Jaina Solo to counter Chief of State Natasi Daala's anti-Jedi policies. Galactic Alliance Security troops led by Harfard arrived at the Jedi Temple the next day to arrest Hellin, but, as Solo had kept the Darkmeld organization a secret from the Masters, acting Grand Master Kenth Hamner truthfully told Harfard that he didn't know where Hellin was.[2]

Soon after, Horn's sister, Jysella Horn, developed the same psychosis as her brother. She fled from the Temple and fought with Jedi Knights Bazel Warv and Yaqeel Saav'etu before being captured by Security forces. The two Horn children were trasnferred to a covert Galactic Alliance Security blockhouse under the command of Colonel Wruq Retk.[3]

Before long, Warv and Saav'etu also developed the psychosis. They were captured by Solo, Imperial Remnant Head of State Jagged Fel, and Solo's parents, Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo outside of the Jedi Temple's speeder entrance. Galactic Alliance Security Captain Atar soon arrived with a warrant for Warv and Saav'etu's arrests, however, the two Jedi had already been secured inside the Jedi Temple, and Han and Leia Solo returned to the Temple and shut the entrance behind them to buy time. Fel used his diplomatic immunity to leave the scene with Jaina Solo in his limousine. Atar was frustrated with his failure to capture the psychotic Jedi, however, and ordered that Fel and Solo be prevented to leave. A Security team under the command of a Duros officer blocked the limo's path in their assault speeder, but Fel convinced Atar to let them leave.[1]

Jedi propaganda

The Jedi Order soon formulated a plan to reveal the darker side of Galactic Alliance Security and gain the sympathy of the public. They tricked Head Judge of the Court of Jedi Affairs Arabelle Lorteli into granting them a document giving them visitation rights to the Horn siblings. Jaina Solo arrived at the secret Galactcic Alliance Security blockhouse, where two Security troopers attempted to prevent her entrance. One of them, Sergeant Weeze, raised an alarm, alerting several nearby Security forces to the danger. Soon, however, several Jedi Masters arrived, along with the Horns' mother, Mirax Terrik Horn, and a large contingent of press. The Security forces arrived with Atar at their helm, but as he was shown the Jedi's document, he was forced to allow them access to the Horns. He ordered a Bothan Security Lieutenant, Rasher Ke'e, to prevent the press from accessing the Horns, but the Jedi neglected Ke'e's instructions and ensured that the press followed them.[1]

The Jedi and press found that the Horns were being held at the executive level of the building, where they were being treated as office decorations. Colonel Wruq Retk, commander of the facility, arrived and attempted to provoke the Jedi in front of the press, but Terrik Horn, furious at his treatment of her children, assaulted him, knocking him out. The present Security forces began calling for her arrest, but at the prompting of Jaina Solo, journalist Javis Tyrr presented a question to one of the present Security officers, Captain Xanda, which made the Security claims sound ridiculous. Chief of State Natasi Daala quickly arrived and announced that charges would not be pressed. The Jedi took the mission to be a success; they had shown the public the corruption of Daala's courts, as well as the apparent cruelty with which Galactic Alliance Security treated the Horns.[1]


The highest known rank in Galactic Alliance Security was that of Colonel. The only known Colonel, the Yaka Wruq Retk, commanded a a secret blockhouse. Ranking below Colonels were Captains, such as Savar, Oric Harfard, Atar, and Xanda, who each commanded a squad or more Security troopers. Two lieutenants, a Duros male and Rasher Ke'e, were known to answer to Atar. Also ranking beneath Captains were Sergeants, such as Carn and Weeze.[1][2]

Galactic Alliance Security forces were also known to work with bounty hunters and mercenaries. They often employed the services of such hunters as the lightsaber-carrying Zilaash Kuh and the Quarren inventor Dhidal Nyz. Security forces also worked with the cyborg mercenary Vrannin Vaxx, the Rodian bounty hunter Kaddit, and Skakoan bouonty hunter and politician Hrym Mawarr.[2]
