"The Thune Cargo" is a comic strip written by Martin Fisher, and drawn by Ingo Römling.[1] The story was published in the twenty-second issue of the Star Wars Rebels Magazine series by Egmont UK Ltd.

Originally, the story was set on Camson and called "Cargo on Camson,"[5] but the Lucasfilm Story Group suggested using Thune from the Star Wars: Adventures in Wild Space series instead.[6] According to Fisher, the story takes place between the Star Wars Rebels episodes "The Mystery of Chopper Base" and "Twilight of the Apprentice."[7]

Behind the scenes[]

Page 27 of the magazine contains an editing error in the comic. In one of the panels, Hera Syndulla says "I had to take care off a pest problem before leaving the base" instead of the correct "I had to take care of a pest problem before leaving the base."

  4. "The Thune Cargo" includes Sabine Wren with blue-green hair, meaning that it takes place before Star Wars Rebels: Steps Into Shadow, when her hair is light-purple. Dawn of Rebellion dates the events of Star Wars Rebels: Steps Into Shadow seventeen years after the end of the Clone Wars, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 19 BBY; therefore, the events of Steps Into Shadow must take place in 2 BBY, and "The Thune Cargo" takes place prior. As "The Thune Cargo" also mentions Chopper Base, which was constructed in 3 BBY according to Dawn of Rebellion, "The Thune Cargo" must take place afterwards, thereby placing it in between these two years.
