  3. The Essential Guide to Warfare and The New Essential Chronology establish the endpoints of this era as 19 BBY and 4 ABY.
  4. Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi Volume 2—Prisoner of Bogan establishes the year 36,453 BBY as the date of the Tho Yor Arrival, which is the zero point of the Tho Yor Arrival dating system, meaning the difference between the calendar based on the Battle of Yavin and the TYA year-notation system is 36,453 years. This date is derived from simple math based upon other confirmed dates.
  5. The New Essential Chronology states that the Great Hyperspace War began in 5000 BBY, which is 1,347 BTC in Star Wars: The Old Republic's Galactic Timeline, so the difference between the calendar based on the Battle of Yavin and the calendar based on the Treaty of Coruscant is 3,653 years. This date is derived using simple math based upon other confirmed dates.
  6. The New Essential Chronology states that the Ruusan Reformation occurred in 1000 BBY, which is the zero point of the calendar based on the Ruusan Reformation, so the difference between the calendar based on the Battle of Yavin and the Ruusan Reformation's year-notation system is 1,000 years. This date is derived using simple math based upon other confirmed dates.
  7. The Essential Atlas places the Battle of Yavin, the zero point in the Galactic Standard Calendar, in 35:3 under the Great ReSynchronization dating system. The Essential Atlas also places the Battle of Selaggis on 43:2:28 and the Battle of Dathomir on 43:3:21. The Essential Guide to Warfare and The Essential Atlas both place the Battle of Dathomir in 8 ABY. The Essential Guide to Warfare also places the Battle of Selaggis in 7 ABY, confirming the placement of the division between each Galactic Standard Calendar year as the third month in the Great ReSynchronization year. Thus, there is a two-month gap between the two dating systems, and the first two months of a GrS year are the last two of the preceding Galactic Standard Calendar year. The Great ReSynchronization was instituted in 35 BBY, so there is a total difference of 35 years and 2 months between the two systems. This article's date is therefore derived from simple math based on this reference explanation.

  12. 12.0 12.1 SWAJsmall "Galaxywide NewsNets"—Star Wars Adventure Journal 3 dates the dissolution of the Imperial Senate to 35:3:5, which is the same day as the deaths of Owen and Beru Lars, according to Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. The Life and Legend of Obi-Wan Kenobi establishes that Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi spend the night in the Tatooine city of Bestine following the Lars murders, before embarking upon the rescue of Princess Leia the next day, during which the destruction of Alderaan also occurs, according to the Star Wars radio drama. Therefore, Leia Organa's rescue and the destruction of Alderaan take place on 35:3:6.
  13. Based on combined information from multiple sources, the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope can be determined to span five days. A New Hope establishes that two nights pass between the Star Destroyer Devastator's capture of Princess Leia Organa's Tantive IV over Tatooine and the deaths of Owen and Beru Lars. Day 3 ends with Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi spending the night in the Tatooine city of Bestine following the Lars murders, according to The Life and Legend of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Day 4, which begins with Skywalker and Kenobi traveling to Mos Eisley and meeting Han Solo, according to The Life and Legend of Obi-Wan Kenobi, encompasses the rescue of Princess Leia aboard the Death Star as well as the group's arrival on Yavin 4, according to the Star Wars radio drama, and ends with General Jan Dodonna going to sleep while preparing for the following day's assault on the Death Star, according to The Movie Trilogy Sourcebook. Day 5 begins with Dodonna waking and discovering the thermal exhaust port weakness in the Death Star plans, according to The Movie Trilogy Sourcebook, and ends with the Battle of Yavin, thus concluding the film, according to A New Hope. Given that The Essential Atlas establishes that the events of A New Hope begin on 35:3:3, the Battle of Yavin therefore takes place on 35:3:7.
