- "Seems like we picked up a little trouble…"
- ―Ania Solo
The following events took place in 140 ABY.
In 138 ABY, the Second Imperial Civil War ended with the defeat of the One Sith order and the death of the organization's leader, Darth Krayt. The surviving members of the Sith cult went into hiding, operating from the shadows while the newly organized Galactic Federation Triumvirate consolidated power on Coruscant. In 138 ABY, however, the Sith Darth Wredd started an open insurgency against both the Galactic Alliance and his Sith brethren alike. The resulting two-year long conflict culminated with the Battle of the Floating World, a battle fought on the planet Mala fought between the One Sith and the Galactic Alliance, with an unlikely assistance by Wredd. The battle ended with many beings wrongly assuming they had achieved a complete eradication of the One Sith and also the death of Wredd. An unlikely crew consisting of junk dealer Ania Solo, her partner Sauk, the droid AG-37, and the Imperial Knight Jao Assam played a crucial role in the victory. For her efforts, Solo was offered a place as the captain of the personal guard of Empress Marasiah Fel, but she declined the offer in favor of traveling the galaxy with her friends.
The galaxy in 140 ABY
With this major defeat of the One Sith, an era of peace started for the Galactic Alliance. One year after the Battle of the Floating World, Solo, Sauk, Assam and AG-37 were traveling together aboard AG-37's freighter when the vessel's stabilizing coil went out of commission. Making a stop at a location, the crew sent Sauk to find a new spare part, while they waited at the hangar. The Mon Calamari bought a used stabilizing coil from the heroes of the Second Imperial Civil War, Cade Skywalker, Deliah Blue, and Jariah Syn. Meanwhile, Solo, Assam and AG-37 fell under fire from another group. As Sauk was returning to his friends, he heard their cries for help and joined the firefight.

Since the difference between that calendar and the Galactic Standard Calendar—based on the date of the Battle of Yavin—was 3,653 years per the reasoning here, the Tho Yor Arrival must have taken place in the year 36,453 BBY of the latter dating system. Therefore, the difference between the Galactic Standard Calendar and the dating system based on the Tho Yor Arrival that is featured in Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void must be 36,453 years. dates the
- Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia places the Treaty of Coruscant, which served as the zero point of a calendar adopted by the Galactic Senate following the conclusion of the Great Galactic War per , in the year 3653 BBY of the Galactic Standard Calendar, which was based around the date of the Battle of Yavin. Thus, the difference between the two dating systems is 3,653 years.
- The New Essential Chronology establishes that the zero point of the calendar introduced by Tarsus Valorum was the Ruusan Reformation. The book places that event in the year of 1000 BBY of the Galactic Standard Calendar—which was based around the date of the Battle of Yavin—therefore establishing a difference of one thousand years between the two dating systems.
- The Essential Atlas places the Battle of Yavin, the zero point in the Galactic Standard Calendar per The New Essential Chronology, in 35:3 under the Great ReSynchronization dating system. The Essential Atlas also places the Battle of Selaggis on 43:2:28 and the Battle of Dathomir on 43:3:21. The Essential Guide to Warfare and The Essential Atlas both place the Battle of Dathomir in the year 8 ABY of the Galactic Standard Calendar. The Essential Guide to Warfare also places the Battle of Selaggis in 7 ABY, confirming the placement of the division between each Galactic Standard Calendar year as the third month in the Great ReSynchronization year. Thus, there is a two-month gap between the two dating systems, with the first two months of a GrS year being the last two of the preceding Galactic Standard Calendar year, and there is a total difference of 35 years and 2 months between the two systems.
