Notes and references[edit | edit source]

  1. The Star Wars Book dates the launch of the Starlight Beacon to 232 years before the Battle of Yavin, which is dated to 0 BBY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. As the space station's launch occurs at the beginning of Star Wars: The High Republic, the project's events can be dated to begin in 232 BBY.
  2. 2.0 2.1 SWYTlogo.png Star Wars: The High Republic | Announcement Trailer on the official Star Wars YouTube channel (backup link) states that the events of Star Wars: The High Republic take place two-hundred years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.

  3. "A Recipe for Death" establishes that Strono Tuggs has served in Takodana Castle for more than twenty years, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary establishes that Tuggs served in the castle for centuries before the Battle of Takodana, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places in 34 BBY. As such, "A Recipe for Death" must take place at least 180 years before the battle, or 146 BBY.
  4. "A Recipe for Death" establishes that Strono Tuggs has served in Takodana Castle for twenty-some years, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary establishes that Tuggs served in the castle for centuries.

  5. 5.0 5.1 5.2 5.3 5.4 5.5 Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, which this short story adapts, in 32 BBY.

  8. Helmet Collection logo small.png Star Wars Helmet Collection 30 (Highlights of the Saga: The Betrayal of Captain Argyus) places the events of "Cloak of Darkness" in 21 BBY.

As "Dooku Captured" and "The Gungan General" take place between these two episodes according to StarWars.com Star Wars: The Clone Wars Chronological Episode Order on StarWars.com (backup link), this story, an adaptation of the two episodes, must also take place in 21 BBY.
