Just curious if "And a flair gun with...six flairs." was intentional, a typo or the result of a voice to text glitch. Flare guns I'm familiar with but firing a flair sounds amazing.

Thanks for pointing that out... I missed it when I went through the story... I've fixed it now.

All of the story E. E. is telling is in the period of the "Old Republic" ... during with the KOTOR game series and the SWTOR MMO take place. This time frame is some three thousand and change years prior to the Battle of Yavin (BBY) which is also known as the Battle of the Death Star (the first one). That gives us outsiders a frame of reference to the movies (the original trilogy). So yes, as time progresses, the numbers count downward. The most recent movie "Solo" for example, ends somewhere around 10 BBY. Using a time stamp with a larger absolute year number in this case is a Flashback. Jumping forward to a smaller number year moves forward in time.

3643 BBY, the first timestamp of the story, is 5 years in the past... during Nyeomi's apprenticeship... when she first observed the wreck of destructed Tarsis and reminesed about the jewel Tarsis was before being bombed to the point of cracking its crust (300 years prior to that first encounter). In the second scene, we see Nyeomi in her present day, during 3638 BBY

Indeed. There are a number of time references within the Star Wars Universe, Year of the Treaty of Coruscant, Year of the Reign of Darth Vitiate, Year of the Reign of Darth Malgus, you can see how this becomes confusing. I chose the most common, and somewhat esoteric dating system to give a hard reference to the outside reader, using the Battle of Yavin (Luke vs Death Star 1.0) as the universal date like the Birth of Christ, counting down to it or rising up away from it.

The Battle of Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back, for instance takes place in 3ABY (After the Battle of Yavin).

Of course, these are not the systems being used by Nyeomi in the story. Not having access to Wookiepedia, something she laments more than once, she can only vaguely remember the game she played that she now finds herself living being 'about 3,000 years' before the Original Star Wars A New Hope. So, to her, it's the Third Year of the Reign of Darth Malgus, or in the Republic the Tenth Year of the Treaty of Coruscant.

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

The Jedi stood, her eyes on the Chancellor. “Please, excuse me,” she said as she turned to me. “I have pressing business. I hope you will come by the Jedi temple before you depart, Countess.” She looked up at the man, then walked out by the other door.

But first, I have to make a call, and then we have to go by the Jedi Temple at the request of Grand Master Shan.


It looks like Nyeomi skipped out on Satele's invite. A meeting that might have amounted to maybe an hour's delay will now - if the face-to-face discussion was of importance - take days to revisit if either one lives that long.

No, no, she went, it just wasn't quite germane to this story, but we'll see her discussion with the Grand Master, never fear. ;)
