In 5 ABY, the New Republic and Galactic Empire arranged for peace talks to be held in Hanna City on the world of Chandrila. With the approval of Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax, Grand Admiral Rae Sloane contacted Chancellor Mon Mothma and Fleet Admiral Ackbar to negotiate peace. However, this was merely a ruse for Rax's planned attack on Chandrila. Before the talks could take place, Rax's agent Windom Traducier activated the former Ashmead's Lock inmates controller chips, who involuntarily attacked New Republic officials. This turned the New Republic leadership against any idea of ending the Civil War through diplomacy. Disagreeing with Rax's tactics, Sloane and the former Ashmead's Lock prisoner Brentin Lore Wexley joined forces to stop Rax, who mustered the remaining Imperial forces for a showdown at Jakku.

- ↑ 3.0 3.1 Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places the Battle of Endor during the year 4 ABY. Shattered Empire, Part IV, which shows Shara Bey and Kes Dameron settling on Yavin 4, takes place three months after the Battle of Endor, and Galactic Atlas places Bey and Dameron's move to Yavin 4 in the year 5 ABY.
The novel Aftermath says that months have passed since the Battle of Endor. Aftermath: Life Debt begins two months after the end of Aftermath; therefore, the events of the former take place at least four months after the Battle of Endor. Since three months after the Battle of Endor is part of 5 ABY, as shown with Bey and Dameron's settling on Yavin 4, events of Life Debt must take place in 5 ABY at the earliest. On the other hand, the Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Jakku, as depicted in Life Debt's sequel Aftermath: Empire's End, to 5 ABY as well, leading to the conclusion that Life Debt is set in 5 ABY.
