In 5 ABY, a skirmish took place at the edge of Wild Space between elements of the New Republic Defense Fleet and the Star Destroyer Scythe. The New Republic pilots Lieutenant Norra Wexley and Captain Wedge Antilles had traveled to the last known coordinates of Han Solo, seeking to find the former New Republic general. However, they were attacked by TIE fighters and Commander Valent's Star Destroyer Scythe. Despite being outnumbered, Wexley and Antilles were soon rescued by New Republic reinforcements led by Commodore Kyrsta Agate, who had been informed about the Scythe's movements by the mysterious intelligence source known as the Operator; who was actually the Imperial Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax. After the New Republic Starfleet refused to search for Solo, Wexley resigned from the Starfleet and enlisted a team to find the rebel hero.

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.
