Continuity[edit | edit source]
- The name of the Abyssin species is misspelled "Abbysin" in this book, although author Jason Fry has explained it's merely a typo.
- Coruscant is said to have 5217 levels, though it actually has 5127.
- Complete Locations states that the Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor was created in response to the Invasion of Naboo. However, the comic book Star Wars 26, set before the Invasion of Naboo, featured Delta 7s.
- Endor's population is said to be "Unknown." However, Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know previously stated it to be over 30,000,000 Ewoks.
- Geonosis' population is stated to be 100 million whereas Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know states it to be 100 billion. Complete Locations also states there was no population on Geonosis during the Imperial Era. This contradicts the Star Wars Rebels episode "Ghosts of Geonosis," where Klik-Klak, the sole survivor of the Galactic Empire's sterilization of Geonosis, is protecting a Queen egg.
- The planet profile for Kashyyyk mistakenly uses an image of Dagobah.
- Lott Dod is stated to have been present during the First Battle of Geonosis in the archducal box of the Petranaki Arena. Though Episode II identified that Neimoidian as Dod, the Neimoidian is assumed to be Rune Haako.
- While Complete Locations states that Naboo only has one moon, Mace Windu mentions "spice miners on the moons of Naboo" in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of The Clones. Thrawn: Alliances later stated that Naboo has three moons.
- King Veruna is said to have reigned for thirteen years. However, Queen's Shadow later established that Naboo's monarch could reign for a maximum of four years.
- Yoda's Hut is stated to have been destroyed by Dagobah's torrential rains after Yoda's death. However, the 2015 reference book Ultimate Star Wars previously stated that it was reclaimed by the swamp and the many creatures Yoda befriended during his exile. After being asked about this, Leland Chee responded that the information of both sources can be canonical, explaining that the hut could have been reclaimed right after Yoda's death but destroyed a hundred years later.
- Yoda's lightsaber is revealed to have been stored in a box at Yoda's Hut in 3 ABY. However, the comic Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith 1 states that the lightsaber was destroyed during the celebration of the eradication of the Jedi Order in 19 BBY. When asked about this, writer Charles Soule mused that perhaps Yoda built a new one, that he had more than one or that Darth Sidious built a fake to make a point, while Lucasfilm Story Group's Matt Martin clarified that they are aware of it but it isn't an error as Yoda surely had more than a few lightsabers during his lifetime.
- The book mentions that after seeing Anakin's lightsaber whilst in Ben Kenobi's home, C-3PO's protocol programming required him to request he shut down to protect his ex-owner's secrets. Pablo Hidalgo confirmed this information was supposed to have been cut from the book.
