Notes and references
- The Star Wars Book dates the launch of the Starlight Beacon to 232 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 232 BBY in the calendar system used by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. As The High Republic: Light of the Jedi depicts the Beacon's launch, the novel's events must take place around that year. The High Republic: The Rising Storm takes place almost a year after the events of Light of the Jedi, and The High Republic: Race to Crashpoint Tower takes place concurrently to it, they therefore must take place around 231 BBY.
