And this farm boy turned fighter pilot begins to suspect that his destiny lies along a different path.
Notes and references
- In Heir to the Jedi, Luke Skywalker states that he has not heard from Obi-Wan Kenobi since the Battle of Yavin. As Skywalker hears from Kenobi in Star Wars 1, Heir to the Jedi must take place between Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and Star Wars 1. According to its opening crawl, Star Wars 1 takes place after the Battle of Yavin, as depicted in A New Hope. Additionally, Darth Vader 1 is set after the Assault on Cymoon, as seen in Star Wars 1, and Darth Vader 4 is set after Darth Vader 1. This means Darth Vader 4 takes place after Star Wars 1. Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of Darth Vader 4 and the end of A New Hope to 0 ABY, both Star Wars 1 and Heir to the Jedi must also take place in that year. As Star Wars Helmet Collection 72 (Highlights of the Saga: Luke's Journey in the Force) places The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure between the events of Heir to the Jedi and Star Wars 1, Weapon of a Jedi must take place in 0 ABY as well.
