- "Get me Admiral Wurtz. I need three of his star cruisers."
- ―Mace Windu, to a clone navigation officer
Wurtz was a male officer who held the rank of Admiral in the Republic Navy during the Clone Wars, a galaxy-wide civil war between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems. During the war, Jedi General Mace Windu attempted to contact Wurtz from the Jedi Temple on the planet Coruscant in order to requisition three cruisers from his command. Jedi General Yoda accompanied the three Venator-class Star Destroyers along with Admiral Wullf Yularen when the three ships arrived in the Christoph system with four Acclamator-class assault ships and landed reinforcements.
