|Name||Students Against the Regime|
|Season||Test Run #8, Current|
|Goal||Escape (Test Run 8), Destruction of the Arthro Taskforce (Current)|
S.T.A.R., or Students Against the Regime, consisted of a large group of students from Test Run 8 (SOTF V0.8) who rallied together and attempted to take on the terrorists. The group gained a lot of support, gaining a whopping thirty-six members over the course of TR8. In order to work more efficiently, the large group of students was split into four smaller groups and given specific functions critical to planning and succeeding in an escape.
They were the Reconnaissance Squad, whose job was to scout out useful information regarding the terrorists and their weaponry, the Defense Squad, whose sole job was to defend the group's base of operations at any cost, the Assault Squad, whose purpose was to take down as many terrorists as possible in order to increase the group's weapons arsenal, and the Intelligence Squad, whose purpose was to remain at the group's base of operations and use information provided to them by the Recon Team in order to formulate an escape route. The groups were separated as follows:
Squad Leader: Valentino, Zachariah "Zach"
Przybysz, Matthew "Matt"
Reconnaissance (Recon) Squad
Squad Leader: Hahn, A.J.
Saint, Lourdes "Lulu"
Intelligence (Intel) Squad
Squad Leader: Ledbetter, Ki
Lovell, Brynn (killed in action)
As shown in the epilogue to v3, the surviving escapees from that game seem to have joined with STAR, which is currently based in Australia. It's unknown if the terrorists are putting any real effort into tracking them down. In v4, Brynn Lovell infiltrated the Arthro Taskforce as "Sparky" and provided intelligence to the others, but was discovered and killed. Later, the island and AT's HQ were assaulted by the Assault and Defence Squads, with the Assault Squad taking Danya hostage as the Defence Squad moved to rescue as many students as possible. Their attack ended with the rescue of many Bayview students and the death of Danya himself, as Dorian shot him and escaped with the Assault Squad. STAR suffered moderate casualties in the attack, but none have been named.
