Admiral Ackbar

From Academic Kids

Template:SW Character Admiral Ackbar is a fictional character in the Star Wars movies and novels.

Ackbar is of the aquatic alien race Mon Calamari. He was perhaps the finest military commander in the service of the Rebel Alliance and the New Republic. He led the attack on the second Death Star at Endor from the flagship Mon Calamari Cruiser, Home One. However, unlike many career officers he was unable to properly play the political game, relying on his trusted friend Mon Mothma to cover him. When Mon Mothma retired from political service, Admiral Ackbar found severe difficulties in facing the political realities of high command.

He was, for a time, enslaved to Grand Moff Tarkin, where it appeared that he learned much about the art and skill of command. Rebel forces later rescued him and he swiftly rose through the ranks, designing the Alliance B-Wing fighter along the way. In terms of tactics, he is most well-known for his audacious, close-range assaults first seen at the Battle of Endor. He fought numerous campaigns against the Galactic Empire, and numerous splinter warlord groups. He retired some time after peace was signed with the Imperial Remnant.

When the Yuuzhan Vong invasion came, he pulled himself out of retirement to plan a trap against those forces in the Deep Core. That plan was highly successful and did much to restore morale after the losses in the invasion. In the New Jedi Order, Admiral Ackbar was depicted as being frail and of a pale blue complexion due to his old age and died during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of natural causes, only days before the conflict's resolution.

Admiral Ackbar had several accomplishments that have not been equalled, including the defeat of two Imperial Grand Admirals. The only one to ever best him in combat was Grand Admiral Thrawn.

The name Ackbar could possibly be derived from the great Mughal emperor Akbar. Ackbar has become legendary on certain web forums for his line, "It's a trap!"
