Frak or frack is a fictional version of "fuck" first used in the 1978-Battlestar Galactica television series. It continues to be used throughout different versions of the Battlestar Galactica franchise as a profanity in science fiction.
"Frak" is a fictional censored version of "fuck" first used in the 1978 Battlestar Galactica series (with the spelling "frack"). In the "re-imagined" version, and subsequently in Caprica, it appears with greater frequency and with the revised spelling "frak", as the producers wanted to make it a four-letter word.
"Frak!" was the title of a game released on the BBC Micro B and Acorn Electron in 1984, and later the Commodore 64. The game saw the user controlling a caveman called Trogg, who had to navigate maze-like scenarios and dispose of deadly obstacles; when coming into contact with such an obstacle or falling a substantial distance, Trogg would cry "Frak!"
"Frak" is also used in the same sense as in Battlestar several times in the Warner Bros. / DC comics Arrow (TV series). Specifically by the characters Felicity Smoak and Curtis Holt. An example can be seen in the season four episode "Lost in the Flood" at 22:05.
