Thirty-four years after the Battle of Endor, the Resistance staged a mission to rescue Gial Ackbar, an admiral in the resistance's military during their conflict with the First Order. The Resistance sent pilot Commander Poe Dameron along with the droids C-3PO and BB-8[1] to rescue Admiral Ackbar from the Star Destroyer Subjugator where Ackbar was being held hostage.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

The mission to rescue Admiral Ackbar was first made canon in the 2016 comic Star Wars Special: C-3PO 1: The Phantom Limb.

Non-canon storylinesEdit

"...I have learned where Admiral Ackbar is being held...He is on a Star Destroyer in the Bakura sector."
―C-3PO[src]

The mission to rescue Admiral Ackbar made its first appearance in the 2016 LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises episode Poe to the Rescue where it depicted that Admiral Ackbar was being held captive by Captain Phasma onboard the Resurgent-class Battlecruiser Subjugator in the Bakura sector.[5]

Using a stolen Atmospheric Assault Lander, Poe Dameron, C-3PO and BB-8 snuck onboard the Subjugator and was able rescue Admiral Ackbar. While escaping the Subjugator they were pursued by several TIE fighters.[5]

They later went into an asteroid field where they ducked behind an asteroid where Dameron had hidden his T-70 X-wing fighter Black One and Ackbar's Delta-7B Aethersprite-class light interceptor Daisy Mae. They used the Atmospheric Assault Lander as a decoy and using their fighters were able to destroy the TIE fighters that had followed them. They later headed back to the Resistance base on D'Qar. [5]

The mission is available to play as a downloadable content in the 2016 Video game LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens also entitled Poe to the Rescue.
