Continuity[edit | edit source]
- Quay Tolsite's homeworld is stated as Kessel. However, Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide previously listed it as Oba Diah.
- The 2017 reference book Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know, Updated and Expanded re-restablished Sabine Wren's homeworld as Krownest. However, Ultimate Star Wars, New Edition still lists it as Mandalore, as in the original 2015 edition of Ultimate Star Wars.
- Project Harvester is misspelled as "Project Harvestor."
- Prior to Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker's release, Ultimate Star Wars, New Edition had stated that D-O was created by Babu Frik; however, Episode IX itself later confirmed this as false.
- The entry on Zare Leonis lists correctly his homeworld as Uquine, but also states that he came originally from a Core World. In Servants of the Empire: Rebel in the Ranks, however, Leonis himself states that Uquine is part of the Colonies.
