Continuity[edit | edit source]
- "Whoever is seeing this… it's up to you now. Don't let our deaths have been in vain."
- ―Jocasta Nu's holocron
The issue includes an Aurebesh list of presumed Order 66 survivors, although two of the names are obscured by text bubbles. The comic's assistant editor, Heather Antos, posted an unlettered copy of the list to Twitter, revealing the names to be "Naia Taver" and "Kule Xandar." In follow-up tweets, Lucasfilm Story Group member Matt Martin stated that the covered names, as well as the name "Kayce Beradun," were simply Easter eggs and not meant to be interpreted literally. The name Kule Xandar was coined as a reference to the planet Xandar from the Marvel Studios film Guardians of the Galaxy.
In the story, Jocasta Nu records a holocron with a message to restore the Jedi Order. This holocron first appeared in the 2015 comic book Star Wars 9, in which the message is heard by Luke Skywalker.
