Freighter 2716 was a freighter used by the Galactic Empire to transport a giant kyber crystal to the Tonnis sector. It was disguised as a civilian freighter to avoid notice. Around 1 BBY, it was infiltrated by rebels Saw Gerrera, Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren, and Chopper during a brief stop at Faos Station. When Gerrera discovered the freighter's cargo, he wired the crystal up to the ship's hyperdrive to create a bomb, which destroyed both the freighter and the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer it was rendezvousing with when it went off.

- ↑ 2.0 2.1 The trivia guide for Star Wars Rebels: Heroes of Mandalore states that Bo-Katan Kryze was redesigned to advance the character's age by "18 years or so". As she was last seen was in The Lawless, which was dated to 19 BBY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, it can be assumed that the events of Heroes of Mandalore take place in approximately 1 BBY. As In the Name of the Rebellion takes place shortly after Heroes of Mandalore, it can be assumed it is also around the year 1 BBY.
