  2. Doctor Aphra 24 is set between issues 21 and 40 of the Star Wars: Doctor Aphra comic-book series. The events of issue 21 take place after the Battle of Yavin, which marks the beginning of 0 ABY, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, while the rebel base on Hoth is still intact during the events of issue 40. Given that Galactic Atlas dates the destruction of the base to 3 ABY, the issue must therefore have been set between 0 ABY and 3 ABY.
