Biography

See: George Lucas

Admiral Ackbar (played by Timothy M. Rose) is a character in the Star Wars fictional universe. He first appears in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and later is a supporting character in the Star Wars Expanded Universe of novels, video games, and comic books.

The line for which Admiral Ackbar is most known, “It’s a trap!”, is often parodied, notably by the animated show Robot Chicken in their Emmy Award-nominated Star Wars special episode. In an episode of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon tries to do an imitation of Ackbar, repeating the line “it’s a trap!” over and over.

Ackbar was a Mon Calamari leader and military commander. Aptly given a name that means “selfless servant,” Ackbar devoted himself to the cause of galactic freedom and became the foremost military commander of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, having previously been an Imperial slave, and the later New Republic. He held the distinction of having been the Supreme Commander of the New Republic Defense Force for nearly two decades and defeating two Imperial Grand Admirals, Osvald Teshik and Peccati Syn, along with numerous other threats. He wrote the manual for the New Republic Fleet Academy, titled Fleet Tactics and Combat Methodology.

After the Pellaeon-Gavrisom Treaty, Ackbar retired to a quiet life of writing his memoirs and advising. However, although old and infirm, he would plan the decisive Battle of Ebaq 9 that brought about the end of Tsavong Lah and much of the Yuuzhan Vong fleet. He would die of old age in 29 ABY.
