Summarize your bug The interaction between HK-47's Loyalty to the Maker zeta and Grand Master Yoda's Battle Meditation seems to not be working as intended. However, the wording is ambiguous, so this might be what was intended.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Load up a match with Jedi Revan vs Darth Revan with all the zetas, make Yoda the fastest character. Use battle meditation.

HK-47's Loyalty to the Maker zeta seems like it was obviously targeted at GMY. The zeta portion of the ability reads "If HK-47's leader is Darth revan, enemies with Protection Up can't gain bonus Turn Meter". Yoda's basic, first special and third special all grant bonus TM (40%, 100%, and 35% + 10% for each Jedi ally when zeta'd, respectively). HK-47;s zeta is working properly for the basic and first special. If he has Protection Up when he uses them, he gains no TM. The third special, Battle Meditation, is where the confusion lies.
Battle Meditation reads "Yoda gains Tenacity Up, Protection Up (30%), and Foresight for 2 turns, then grants each ally every non-unique buff he has (excluding Stealth and Taunt) for 2 turns. Yoda grants himself +35% Turn Meter and an additonal +10% Turn Meter for each other living Jedi ally." The ability explicitly states that it grants other allies the buffs AFTER getting Ten Up, Pro Up, and Foresight. It does not explicitly state if the TM gain is supposed to happen before or after the buffs are granted. The fact that the statement comes after the first part about the buffs seems to imply that the TM gain happens afterwards, but the text is ambiguous.
The actual code for the ability goes TM gain > Give Yoda Ten Up, Pro Up, and Foresight > Spread buffs. You can read this on swgoh.gg and this video verifies it: https://youtu.be/QtbeF4U6lQQ?t=20. Obviously, Yoda is gaining TM with this ability. When I first read HK's ability, I was absolutely certain that it's main intended purpose was specifically to block this 85% TM gain. Basically any damage between that and his next turn will wipe out his protection up and makes HK's zeta much less useful. I don't know what was intended, but it seems like this is a bug.
Also, I was actually wrong about his first special. He does get his bonus turn after his first special, even if he had bonus protection. Again, I'm not sure if this is was as intended or not.
