  4. "Jyn's Trade" takes place prior to Jyn Erso's death in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and, per Ultimate Star Wars, New Edition, occurs after Erso's encounter with Sabine Wren in "Accidental Allies." Erso is an adult in "Accidental Allies", meaning that she is at least eighteen. Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel dates Erso's birth one year after the First Battle of Geonosis, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places in 22 BBY. Therefore Erso was born in 21 BBY, meaning she turned eighteen in 3 BBY, meaning the earliest "Accidental Allies" can occur is 3 BBY. Star Wars: Galatic Atlas dates Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to 0 BBY. Therefore Jyn Erso died in 0 BBY, "Accidental Allies" occurs at the earliest 3 BBY, and "Jyn's Trade" takes place some time between these two years.
