For a time, Ackbar was enslaved to Grand Moff Tarkin, where it appears 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 starfighter 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, including the "Ackbar Slash". He fought numerous campaigns against the Galactic Empire, and numerous splinter warlord groups. During Grand Admiral Thrawn's campaign against the New Republic, Borsk Fey'lya accused Ackbar of treason, citing bank account increases prior to the battle of Sluis Van. However, the money was placed in there by Imperial Intelligence, and Ackbar was soon exonerated. He retired some time after a truce was signed with the Imperial Remnant, when Leia resigned and Fey'lya was elected Chief of State. Slave redirects here. ...

In The New Jedi Order, Ackbar was described as being frail and of a pale blue complexion, brought on by old age. Towards the end of the war, he stayed in his home on Mon Calamari recuperating. Although he was still fully cognizant, he was attended to by Winter. When the Yuuzhan Vong invasion came, he pulled himself out of retirement to plan a trap against those forces in the Deep Core. He did, however, come up with the battle plan that would lead to the New Republic victory at Ebaq 9. That plan succeeded and restored morale after the many losses in the invasion. However, this exertion proved taxing for the aging Admiral, and would soon be fatal. He died of natural causes only days before the resolution of the conflict.
