  10. The Star Wars Book dates the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi to 19 years before and 34 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. It also states that the events of Episode III and Episode VIII occurred 53 years apart. Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of Episode IV to 0 BBY and 0 ABY, the combination of those two time periods must make up a single year.

  14. 14.0 14.1 14.2 14.3 14.4 14.5 The epilogue of the Star Wars Rebels episode "Family Reunion – and Farewell" occurs after the end of the Galactic Civil War, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 5 ABY, while Ultimate Star Wars, New Edition establishes that the Liberation of Lothal occurs prior to the Battle of Yavin, which marks the end of 0 BBY, according to Galactic Atlas. Lothal's liberation takes place between the Star Wars Rebels episode "Wolves and a Door" and the "Family Reunion – and Farewell" epilogue, between which Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy establishes there is a five-year gap. Therefore, in order to maintain the aforementioned five-year gap that ends no earlier than 5 ABY while still preceding the Battle of Yavin, the Liberation of Lothal must take place in 0 BBY. As the episode "Rebel Assault" takes place prior to "Wolves and a Door," it must also take place around the same year.

  17. "Family Reunion – and Farewell" shows that Jacen Syndulla was born after the Liberation of Lothal and Ultimate Star Wars, New Edition states that he was born before the Battle of Scarif. Since both these events can be dated to 0 BBY, Jacen was born in 0 BBY.
