In 5 ABY, a skirmish took place at the edge of Wild Space between elements of the New Republic Starfleet and the Star Destroyer Scythe. The New Republic pilots Lieutenant Norra Wexley and Captain Wedge Antilles had traveled to the last known coordinates of Han Solo, seeking to find the former New Republic general. However, they were attacked by TIE fighters and Commander Valent's Star Destroyer Scythe. Despite being outnumbered, Wexley and Antilles were soon rescued by New Republic reinforcements led by Commodore Kyrsta Agate, who had been informed about the Scythe's movements by the mysterious intelligence source known as the Operator; who was actually the Imperial Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax. After the New Republic Starfleet refused to search for Solo, Norra resigned from the Starfleet and enlisted a team to find the rebel hero.

- ↑ 2.0 2.1 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.
