Is Admiral Ackbar Tuesday an official holiday? No, but here in the ninja lair we think the venerable leader deserves his own day. His popularity has grown over the last couple of years similar to that of limited screen-time star Boba Fett and we couldn’t be happier. His famous line “It’s a trap” has spawned everything from adoration to pseudo political movements. He has made guest appearances on Robot Chicken and even spawned his own website or two.
For a little background, according to the website, All Things Ackbar: Admiral Ackbar is a Mon Calamari, and perhaps the finest military commander in the service of the Rebel Alliance and the New Republic. Admiral Ackbar 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. He wrote the manual for the New Republic Fleet Academy, titled ‘Fleet Combat and Methodology’.
