Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Season 4, Episode 3
Original Air Date: September 23, 2011
Meanwhile, Nossor Ri, leader of the Quarren, is gradually learning that Riff Tamson's aid is less about helping the Quarren than it is about gaining power for himself. As Lando Calrissian would say, "This deal is getting worse all the time!" Lee-Char believes the only hope is for Mon Calamari and Quarren to work together with their Republican allies to quell Tamson and his goons but Ri takes some convincing.
While this Mon Cala arc is primarily a Lee-Char story, it also provides some great development for Captain (later Admiral) Ackbar. We get to see him as military leader of his people and worthy scrapper in his own right. In Return of the Jedi, Ackbar was a puppet performed by Tim Rose and voiced by Erik Bauersfeld. In Clone Wars, he is voiced by Artt Butler.
