Behind the scenesEdit
The Beetle Nebula was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, authored by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace. The Atlas placed the nebula in grid square N-18. The 2007 novel Legacy of the Force: Exile, written by Aaron Allston, introduced a Freebooter-class transport named Beetle Nebula, however, no connection has been established between the nebula and that starship.
