* SeriesContinuityError: The book claims that before discovering the image of Sidious within the mechno-chair, the Jedi believed he was a lie, invented by Dooku to lead Ob-Wan astray on Geonosis in ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'', and not mentioned since. But in ''Yoda: Literature/DarkRendezvous'', Dooku names Sidious as his master openly to Yoda. {{Continuity Nod}}s to ''Dark Rendezvous'' appear elsewhere in ''Labyrinth of Evil'', yet this discrepancy is not explained.

--> '''Fa'ale Lah:''' You know, they killed the engineers, the mechanics, just about everyone who worked on that craft. But I knew. I made the delivery, grabbed what was due me, and I was away. Not far enough, though. They tracked me to Ryloth, Nar Shaada, half the starforsaken worlds in the Tingel Arm. I had my share of close calls.
