- The events of Tarkin take place five years after the rise of the Galactic Empire, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 19 BBY. Therefore, Tarkin must be set in 14 BBY. The novel also establishes that Wilhuff Tarkin was fifty years old during the events of the book, placing his birth in 64 BBY.
