  • One panel of the series' twenty-third chapter shows at least fifteen Executor-class Star Dreadnoughts gathered before the Battle of Endor, despite Aftermath: Life Debt specifying that only thirteen were in service before the battle. Furthermore, the fleet depicted in the image is said in the Lost Stars novel to be nearly as big as the Imperial fleet present at the Battle of Hoth. However, earlier in the same novel, it was said that six Star Destroyers were at Hoth—a significantly smaller force than the one depicted in the image. This was later changed in the printed version, the panel now features three Executor-class Star Dreadnoughts.
  • The thirty-third chapter adapts the fight between Ciena Ree and Thane Kyrell aboard the Inflictor. This fight differs with the book, the dialogue and combat previously established by the book is completely changed.
