The Stark Veteran Assembly (or SVA) was an organization composed of, and aimed to support and speak for, Republic veterans of the Stark Hyperspace War. Headquartered on the Eriadu city of Phelar, its spokesperson as of 23 BBY was Laslo Dorits. The SVA participated in the 33 BBY Eriadu Trade Summit, where they presumably spoke against letting the Trade Federation arm itself.
Backing Militarists, the SVA were devoted advocates for an establishment of a standing Republic military, especially in the lead-up to the Clone Wars, and at least once publicly criticized Padmé Amidala for her pacifist views, in particular her implication that those who advocate for war or serve in war are cowards. Dorits responded on the late night show Essence by stating that Amidala's statements were "disgraceful, stupid and typical", as well as pointing out that it was soldiers who had liberated her home planet from Trade Federation occupation.
Behind the scenesEdit
The 2012 guide book The Essential Guide to Warfare retconned the Republic-affiliated paramilitary force that appeared in the 2001 comic arc Star Wars: Republic: The Stark Hyperspace War as being the Outland Regions Security Force.
