The Sronks are a race native to the planet Sronk. They were a member species of the New Republic. They spoke Basic using hand-based metaphors, such as "seeing things full-left-handed" for "seeing things first-hand" and "full slamming brunt of the closed right hand" to describe a large-scale military offensive. In 9 ABY, their homeworld's defenses were beaten by seven Dreadnaught-class heavy cruisers which Grand Admiral Thrawn had retrieved from the Katana Fleet. When Thrawn appeared to return in 19 ABY, the Sronk senator, who had personally witnessed his homeworld's defeat, advised caution.
