  1. 1.00 1.01 1.02 1.03 1.04 1.05 1.06 1.07 1.08 1.09 1.10 1.11 Star Wars: Galactic Atlas establishes that the founding of the Galactic Empire occurs in 19 BBY. The events of Ahsoka commence exactly one year after the Empire's founding, placing the novel's events in 18 BBY.
  2. The novel Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel reveals that the Ryloth insurgency began in 19 BBY and didn't end until 5 ABY as revealed in Aftermath: Life Debt

Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the beginning of Imperial rule to 19 BBY, the subjugation and subsequent occupation of Mon Cala, seen in issues 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17 of Star Wars: Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith, took place in 18 BBY.
  10. 10.0 10.1 Kanan 6 states that it had been fourteen years since Kanan Jarrus had seen Gamut Key. As Kanan last saw Gamut Key in Kanan 4, that comic must be set fourteen years prior to Kanan 6. Kanan 6 has the Ghost crew aware of Fulcrum, meaning that it must also be set after "Gathering Forces". However, as Ezra Bridger does not yet have his lightsaber, it must be set before "Path of the Jedi". "Star Wars: Galactic Atlas" places "Empire Day" (which directly precedes "Gathering Forces") and "Path of the Jedi" in 4 BBY, meaning that Kanan 6 must also take place in 4 BBY. If Kanan 6 takes place in 4 BBY, Kanan 4 takes place fourteen years prior, and Kanan 5 takes place directly afterwards, it must take place in 18 BBY.
  11. 11.0 11.1 11.2 11.3 11.4 11.5 Kanan 5
  12. SWInsider.png "Rebel Rousers Our Top Ten Rebels"—Star Wars Insider 203 states that Mon Mothma began organizing an anti-Empire coalition eighteen years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas states that A New Hope begins in 0 BBY, Mothma must have began organizing the anti-Empire coalition in 18 BBY.
  13. 13.0 13.1 13.2 13.3 13.4 13.5 13.6 13.7 Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good
  14. 14.0 14.1 14.2 14.3 The events of Thrawn: Alliances set during the Clone Wars take place after the trial and exoneration of Ahsoka Tano. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates both the end of the the Clone Wars and the trial and exoneration of Ahsoka Tano to 19 BBY. As some of the events in Thrawn Ascendancy: Chaos Rising take place concurrently with Thrawn: Alliances, they must therefore take place around the year 19 BBY. Furthermore, Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good establishes that the attack on the Paataatus, which was depicted in Chaos Rising, took place "last year." Therefore, the events of Greater Good must take place around 18 BBY.
