Proof of Placement

Last Call at the Zero Angle is set in 11/30/2015. The story ends with SPOILER ALERT Tana Chellaine giving news of the destruction of the first Death Star. “There’s something you all need to know—because pretty soon the whole galaxy will have heard the news.” There’s a chance this could have taken place before the Royal Award Ceremony but I see no reason to place it before Princess Leia or Smuggler’s Run.
