Notes and references
- Star Wars 108: Forever Crimson is set shortly after the end of the Nagai–Tof War, which The New Essential Chronology places in 4 ABY. In this issue, Leia Organa explains that the events of Star Wars (1977) 50 happened "years ago". As a result, the events of Star Wars 108: Forever Crimson must take place at least two years after the events of Star Wars 50: The Crimson Forever, which are set in 3 ABY. Thus, the events of Star Wars 108: Forever Crimson can be placed in 5 ABY.
