- "Now hurry up, we have to find Bastila! We have to make sure she makes it off the ship alive!"
- ―Trask Ulgo
Trask Ulgo was male Human who served as an ensign with the Galactic Republic Navy during the height of the Jedi Civil War. As an officer aboard the Endar Spire, he was assigned as the bunkmate of the amnesiac former Sith Lord Revan, helping him to get his bearings as their vessel fell under attack from the Sith Empire. He eventually sacrificed himself so that Revan could escape the ship, taking Darth Bandon on in single combat in order to delay the apprentice.
As an ensign in the Republic Navy, Ulgo was serving aboard the Endar Spire in 3,956 BBY, when the ship was attacked by a Sith fleet under the command of Darth Malak in the space over the Outer Rim Territories world of Taris. While the rest of the Hammerhead-class cruiser's crew attempted to fend off the boarding parties of Sith troopers, he returned to his quarters within the ship's command module in order to help his bunkmate, whom he believed to be a new recruit but was actually the amnesiac former Dark Lord Revan, escape. Trask informed Revan that it was their duty to ensure the survival of Bastila Shan, the Jedi was in command of the mission, at all costs. Together they fought their way to the warship's bridge through several knots of invading Sith forces, encountering a short duel between a Jedi Knight and a Sith Lord on their way.
After making their way to the bridge and not finding Bastila, Carth Onasi, who was also serving aboard the Endar Spire, informed the pair that Bastila had escaped from the stricken warship, Trask reasoned that their only option was to follow her example and flee to the planet below via the ship's emergency escape pods. However, before the duo could make it to the pods on the ship's starboard side, they were confronted by Malak's apprentice, Darth Bandon. Trask realized there was little chance that they could both survive an encounter with the double-bladed lightsaber-wielding Sith Lord; in order to save Revan, he charged into a confrontation with Bandon, sealing the door behind him and making sure that his death would buy his comrade enough time to escape.
Personality and traits
- "For the Republic!"
- ―Trask Ulgo
Trask Ulgo was a dedicated soldier of the Republic who took his duty very seriously. He also held a high regard for both the Jedi and the Sith, and knew what they were capable of accomplishing in combat. Despite knowing this, however, he demonstrated his loyalty by single-handedly taking on the apprentice to Darth Malak in order to ensure the survival of his comrades.
Behind the scenes
Ulgo's dialogue within the opening sequence of the game serves as a tutorial that shows the player how to use game controls; on the party selection screen, his portrait is on the square that later will belong to Bastila. When the player confronts Darth Bandon later on in the game, the player may choose a dialogue option in which Revan accuses Bandon of killing Trask. Bandon subsequently admits that he did indeed kill the ensign. When Trask (temporarily) joins the player's party, the player can access Trask's equipment screen. All that is equipped is basic clothing. (It appears as Republic armor though) If the player takes off, or replaces the clothing with other armor, the appearance of Trask's armor will not change.
Ulgo was voiced by veteran voice actor Cam Clarke.
