In the year 0 BBY, he was held prisoner on board the Galactic Empire's Death Star superweapon, but managed to escape from his cell using an explosive device.

In the year 0 BBY, the Advozse mercenary and smuggler Bom Vimdin was a prisoner of the Galactic Empire and was held in a cell onboard the Death Star superweapon. Vimdin managed to get hold of an explosive device and used it to blow a hole in the side of his cell, allowing him to escape into the neighbouring corridor and flee from pursuing stormtroopers.
Later that year, the mercenary had managed to escape from the Death Star and spent time in Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina in the Mos Eisley spaceport on the planet Tatooine. While in the cantina, he sat at a booth table with the Arcona Hem Dazon, the Siniteen Pons Limbic, the Stennes Shifter Braconnor Bakiska and the Defel Arleil Schous. While the group sat together, the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and the former moisture farmer Luke Skywalker entered the establishment looking for a pilot to take them to the planet Alderaan, but ended up coming into conflict with the thugs Doctor Cornelius Evazan and Ponda Baba at the cantina's bar.

Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ According toStar Wars: Scum and Villainy: Case Files on the Galaxy's Most Notorious, Vimdin was twenty-eight years old in 7977 C.R.C., the same year it dates Battle of Scarif. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates Jyn Erso's mission to steal the plans of the first Death Star, which concluded with the Battle of Scarif, to 0 BBY. Since Vimdin was twenty-eight in 0 BBY, his birth can be calculated to 28 BBY.

- ↑ In Bounty Hunt, the Death Star's superlaser is fully operational, and Star Wars: Galactic Atlas establishes that the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and thus the completion of the superweapon, take place in 0 BBY. Since the Death Star was destroyed in the Battle of Yavin (Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope), it can be assumed that the events in Bounty Hunt also take place in 0 BBY.
