- "I must get you to safety, General!"
- ―Zak, to Yoda
"Zak" was the nickname of a Clone Captain in the Republic Navy during the Clone Wars, a galactic conflict fought between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Like his fellow clone troopers, he had been cloned on the planet Kamino from the bounty hunter Jango Fett.
During the war, Zak was stationed on a Consular-class cruiser that was tasked with delivering Jedi Grand Master Yoda to Rugosa, where the Jedi Master was to meet with King Katuunko of Toydaria. However, the starship was attacked by the Confederacy, which sought its own alliance with the King. While Zak wanted to get Yoda to safety, the Jedi General and a trio of diplomatic service clone troopers landed on the moon in an escape pod. Eventually, Yoda and the troops defeated a force of battle droids and united with Katuunko, who agreed to building a Republic base on his world.
