"In addition to wiping away the Republic, the Emperor reset the dating system to the time before the formation of the Empire and the time after its formation—another display of absolute control."
Leia Organa[src]

Following Emperor Sheev Palpatine's proclamation of the New Order[1] in 19 BBY,[2] a new calendar was introduced with the day of the Galactic Empire's formation as its epoch. BFE stood for "Before the Formation of the Empire," and AFE for "After the Formation of the Empire."[3]
