- "I urgently need your assistance. My friend Zab Nadlish, who was making a holo about our beloved Emperor's private retreat, has been kidnapped by some crazed Gungan. I'm beside myself with worry. Will you go rescue him?"
- ―Jyr Koble
Zab Nadlish was a renowned holovid director who lived during the time of the Galactic Civil War. Sometime following the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, he was making a holo about Emperor Palpatine's retreat on Naboo. However, he was kidnapped by an alleged Gungan terrorist, prompting Jyr Koble to dispatch a spacer to rescue him.
Behind the scenes
Dialogue pertaining to Zab Nadlish appears in the directory tree files for the 2003 massively multiplayer online role-playing game Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided. However, he never actually appeared on the video game's live servers as a proper non-player character.
