This article is about the Security Council of the Galactic Senate. You may be looking for the New Republic security council.

The Security Council was a Galactic Senate committee of the Galactic Republic that was responsible for protecting the Republic itself, and therefore played a large role in overseeing its war effort against the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars[1] that took place from 22 BBY to 19 BBY.[2]

The Security Council advised Supreme Chancellor Palpatine on which planets to defend and which areas should see an offensive, and also briefed the Senate itself. The Security Council, along with the Supreme Chancellor, could activate any of the 150 general orders each clone trooper memorized.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Security Council was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in the Fantasy Flight Games roleplaying sourcebook Rise of the Separatists, which was released in 2019.[1] The Security Council previously existed in Star Wars Legends, being mentioned in the novel Republic Commando: True Colors, written by Karen Traviss and released in 2007.[3]
