Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Amazon favicon.png Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle #5 (of 5) (Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle) on Amazon.com (backup link)
  2. Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 5 ends with Darth Vader imprisoning Vaneé, and as shown in Star Wars Adventures: Shadow of Vader's Castle, he doesn't get released until after the end of the Galactic Civil War. As he appears in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places in 0 BBY, Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 5 must take place some time after 0 BBY. As Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 5 features Darth Vader, who dies in 4 ABY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, then this comic must take place some time between 0 BBY and 4 ABY.
  3. During the events of Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 5, a Lava Trooper refers to Sentinel-class landing crafts as being "new". As the model is a few years old during the events of Lando - Double or Nothing 5, it can be assumed that Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 5 takes place beforehand. StarWars.com Solo: A Star Wars Story Books and Comics Revealed on StarWars.com (backup link) places Star Wars: Lando - Double or Nothing right before Solo: A Star Wars Story, which Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide dates to nine years after the founding of the Galactic Empire, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 19 BBY. Therefore Star Wars: Lando - Double or Nothing 5 takes place in 10 BBY, and Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 5 takes place beforehand. Also, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary states that Fortress Vader was completed in 46 BSI, which corresponds to 12 BBY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. As Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 5 features Fortress Vader but takes place prior to Star Wars: Lando - Double or Nothing 5 it must take place between 12 BBY and 10 BBY.
