The Queluhan Nebula was a nebula located in the galaxy's Unknown Regions. In 5 ABY, Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax informed the Shadow Council that he still commanded an Imperial fleet in the Queluhan Nebula along with other forces in the Vulpinus Nebula, the Almagest, the Recluse's Nebula, the Ro-Loo Triangle, and the Inamorata. Following the Liberation Day attacks on the New Republic capital Chandrila, Rax assumed control of the Imperial remnant fleets and ordered them to assemble above the planet Jakku.
After their defeat during the Battle of Jakku and the signing of the Galactic Concordance, a remnant of the Empire's once-powerful starfleet retreated to the Queluhan Nebula, as its ionized gases ensured that the New Republic's sensors could not detect them, allowing the Imperials to amass a large fleet without being noticed.

- ↑ 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.
