  2. The events of Star Wars Adventures: The Clone Wars – Battle Tales 1 take place during the Clone Wars and before the Battle of Christophsis. Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates both the beginning of the Clone Wars and the Battle of Christophsis to 22 BBY, it can be deduced that the events of Battle Tales 1 are also set in that year.
