Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Star Wars: The Rebel Files states that the YT-2400 light freighter was manufactured by Corellian Engineering Corporation, or CEC. Since the Outrider was a YT-2400 light freighter, it must have been manufactured by CEC.
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 2.3 2.4 2.5 2.6 2.7 YT-1300 Millennium Falcon Owners' Workshop Manual
  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 3.3 3.4 3.5 Star Wars Encyclopedia of Starfighters and Other Vehicles established that YT-2400 light freighters were equipped with two double laser turrets, concussion missile launchers, and a class 2 hyperdrive,. It also stated that they could reach speeds of 800 kilometers per hour. Since the Outrider was a YT-2400 light freighter, it must have had the same standard features.
  4. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, including the Outrider's appearance, to 0 BBY.
