  3. 3.0 3.1 Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to 0 BBY, and the formation of the Galactic Empire to 19 BBY. Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide further establishes that the kyber crystal research team had been conscripted by the Empire to work on Eadu for nearly twenty years by the former date, meaning it must have started work around 19 BBY, the year the Empire was founded.
