Notes and references[]

  1. Star Wars Rebels Magazine 16
  2. "Ice Breaking" references the events of "The Future of the Force", which takes place shortly before "A Princess on Lothal". StarWars.com Star Wars Rebels Returns...with Princess Leia on StarWars.com (backup link) places "A Princess on Lothal" three years before Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, or 3 BBY. Therefore "The Future of the Force" takes place in 3 BBY. Fifth Brother and Seventh Sister, who appear in "Ice Breaking", die in "Twilight of the Apprentice". According to Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know, Updated and Expanded, Ahsoka Tano was 14 years old when she became Anakin Skywalker's Padawan and 32 years old when she fought him as Darth Vader in "Twilight of the Apprentice." Star Wars: Galactic Atlas established that Tano was apprenticed to Skywalker in 22 BBY, meaning "Twilight of the Apprentice" cannot be set any later than 3 BBY. Dawn of Rebellion states that Phoenix Cell established Chopper Base on Atollon three years before the Battle of Yavin or 3 BBY. Since "Twilight of the Apprentice" takes place after that event, it must be set in 3 BBY. Therefore "Ice Breaking" also takes place in 3 BBY.
