- "This wreckage is from a battle between the Separatists and Republic during the Clone Wars—"
- ―Beilert Valance
A battle was fought in the Ruusan system between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. Republic forces included at least one Venator-class Star Destroyer and at least two Low Altitude Assault Transports, while Separatist forces included at least one Lucrehulk-class Battleship. Around 3 ABY, the Nautolan bounty hunter Nakano Lash hid amongst wreckage from the battle in a 720 light freighter, before being found by fellow bounty hunters Beilert Valance and T'onga.

Notes and references
- Bounty Hunters 4
- Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the beginning of the Clone Wars to 22 BBY, and the end of the Clone Wars to 19 BBY. As Bounty Hunters 4 states that the battle in the Ruusan system took place during the Clone Wars, it must have taken place between 22 and 19 BBY.
- The events of Bounty Hunters 3 take place shortly after the the Escape from Cloud City, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 3 ABY. Therefore, the events of the comic and the following issue take place in approximately the same year.
