Notes and references
- Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith establishes that Order 66 was enacted shortly after the Duel in Palpatine's office. During this battle, Order 66 was issued, meaning the battle took place shortly after that duel.
- Star Wars: Visions – "Tatooine Rhapsody"
- The song "Order 66" was played in the episode during Jay's escape from the battle, establishing that he was running from Order 66 and placing that battle during the execution of the order. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates Order 66 to 19 BBY, meaning that the battle must take place in that year.
- Star Wars: Visions – "Tatooine Rhapsody" depicted Jay wearing a Padawan braid during the Clone Wars. Therefore, he was a Padawan at that time. Rise of the Separatists establishes that Padawans involved in the Republic Military, as Jay was, served as Jedi Commanders.
