yeah i was gonna say it's been 3,000 years since Kotor and the Movies.

We know between the two time periods that

1. The Sith were completely destroyed

2. The Empire was wiped out with the Sith.

3. The Jedi are the primary peace keepers in the Galaxy and they maintained peach for 1,000 generations or 1,000 years depending on who you talk to


So you have no need for a standing army it seems. My guess the Galactic senate disbanded the army... wait now I have to watch Attack of the Clones again to see if they say how long they have been with out an army.

Well the Republic had its army till 1000 BBY when there was the Ruusan Reformation. That wiped out almost the whole army. The remaining soldiers were used as a police force on Coruscant. For the next 1000 years until the Clone Wars there was no fighting to be done. The Republic relied on its Jedi for protection.


Hope that helps,

The Republic reformed itself 1,000 years before Episode 1 after a millenia-year war with the Sith. It disbanded it's army as part of the Russaan Reformations.\

At the time of the Ruusan Reformations, The Dark Brotherhood had been wiped out (and Darth Bane presumed dead), so there was no enemy left to fight. Top it all off with a 1000 year long war, a cold war before that, and the Jedi Civil war before that, and you have a Galactic Republic that, as a whole, is exhausted. With the Galaxy at peace, they decided that a large standing army was no longer needed.

With the galaxy in a time of relative peace for over 1,000 years, planetary defense would move to the control of the local governments. The size of army they had gathered during a peace time setting would be impractical and extremely costly to maintain. I'd also venture a guess that it was also a political move to bring more independent planets into the Republic (Who might not be willing to join a loose affiliation of planets if, lets say, they could drop in legions of troops on their planet to deal with situations they don't agree with <_< ).

The only explanation I think really would make sense is that the Republic moved toward localized planetary/solar/star cluster militias, rather than maintain a massive pan-galactic war machine.

the era between Darth Bane and the first Movie was a thousand year of galactic peace. we just assume the army has been dispatched to security or retired, its budjet cut and all that good ****. then it just vanished.

since the Jedi order is kinda the State religion of the Republic AND the Peacekeepers of the galaxy, they just took control of the whole global security thing.
