  2. Obi-Wan 3
  3. StarWars.com A Tale from Obi-Wan's Youngling Days and More from Marvel's May 2022 Star Wars Comics – Exclusive Preview on StarWars.com (backup link) establishes that Star Wars: Obi-Wan takes place during Obi-Wan Kenobi's final days on Tatooine, and since him leaving Tatooine and his death in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope are dated to 0 BBY in Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, Obi-Wan 3 must take place around the same year.
  4. The Obi-Wan 3 flashbacks take place shortly after the Defense of Rishi Station, which appears in "Rookies." Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places the events of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars film and "Bombad Jedi" in 22 BBY. As the events of "Rookies" take place between the aforementioned media according to StarWars.com Star Wars: The Clone Wars Chronological Episode Order on StarWars.com (backup link), it must also be set in the same year. Therefore Obi-Wan 3 also takes place around 22 BBY.
