Battlefront: Twilight Company's page is using misinterpreted info for its date of "18 months after the Battle of Yavin". The paragraph in question is on page 17 but it's referring to when Twilight Company joined in the "push into the Mid Rim", an operation that was "in the wake" of the destruction of the Death Star and not immediately after. The math actually shows the operation in the paragraph would have to be at LEAST 6 months after Yavin.
This is further proven by the subheading for Chapter 1 which says "Thirteen Years After the Clone Wars” and the subheading for Chapter 2 says “Nine Years Later” for a total of 22 years later. The author, Alexander Freed, confirmed in a tweet  that the Ch. 1 subheading referred to the end of the Clone Wars. Since the Del Rey timeline at the front places this before Episode V, mathematically this book can only be set in 3 ABY. Later in the book there is also a flashback that is 15 years after the Clone Wars followed by a chapter "7 years later", again confirming 22 years.

I'm saying that 3 ABY is not a usable date in the Canon timeline. I don't see how TPM as Year 0 got into this. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 23:47, October 11, 2015 (UTC)
There is no in-universe dating system other than Lothal Years so you just have to pick something and go with it. This site hasn't done that so it's all over the place: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline_of_canon_books and other pages use TPM as year 0, other places use "X years prior to Y", etc. Say "3 years after Episode IV" I don't really care. I'm just saying it's not 18 months no matter what you call it. Since it currently says "18 months after the Battle of Yavin" if you continue that method then the correct update should say "3 years after the Battle of Yavin".Theymightbegeeks (talk) 00:15, October 12, 2015 (UTC)
