In 5 ABY, following the Galactic Empire's defeat at the Battle of Endor, the military forces of the New Republic besieged the Imperial stronghold of Arkanis during the Galactic Civil War. By the time period after the rebellion on Akiva, it was generally believed the Empire was in serious danger of losing the world. Among the Imperials trapped on the war-torn planet was Commandant Brendol Hux of the Arkanis Academy. Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax gave orders to escort Hux and his son safely off-world, a task accomplished by bounty hunter Mercurial Swift. Soon after, the world fell to the New Republic. In response to the defeat, Grand Admiral Rae Sloane was scheduled to issue a statement on behalf of the Office of Imperial Promotion, Galactic Truth, and Fact Correction.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Aftermath: Life Debt
- Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Endor to 4 ABY and the events of Shattered Empire 4, which take place three months after the battle, to 5 ABY. Furthermore, the novel Aftermath states that months have passed since the Battle of Endor, while Aftermath: Life Debt begins two months after the end of Aftermath. Therefore, the events of Aftermath: Life Debt begin at least four months after the Battle of Endor, which corresponds to 5 ABY. Additionally, Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Jakku, as depicted in Life Debt's sequel, Aftermath: Empire's End, to 5 ABY as well, thereby firmly placing Aftermath: Life Debt in 5 ABY.
