Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Heir to the Jedi
- In Heir to the Jedi, Luke Skywalker states that he has not heard from Obi-Wan Kenobi since the Battle of Yavin, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas establishes as the starting point of 0 ABY. Since Skywalker hears from Kenobi in the comic Star Wars 1, Heir to the Jedi must take place between the battle and Star Wars 1. Additionally, that comic takes place before Darth Vader 4, the events of which are dated to 0 ABY by Galactic Atlas. Therefore, Heir to the Jedi must also take place in 0 ABY.
