The Home Guard is a system specific force within Star Command designed to defend that system.

The various Home Guard's are made up of local Star Command officers. They have unique uniforms and traditions, but are still kept within the Star Command structure, for instance, the Baraben System home guard is known as the Royal Baraben Home Guard due to the sponsorship of the Baraben Prime Royal Family.

Even when assigned away from their home system Star Command officer's and NCO's wear the crest of the Home Guard on the eppaulette's of their uniform.
