Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- "Jyn's Trade" takes place prior to Jyn Erso's death in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but in this episode she is visibly older than her appearance in the Rogue One Adaptation 2 flashback to the Mission to Tamsye Prime. Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide dates the Mission to Tamsye Prime five years before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 0 BBY. Therefore Jyn Erso died in 0 BBY, the Mission to Tamsye Prime took place in 5 BBY, and "Jyn's Trade" takes place some time between these two years.
