* ActorAllusion: Brendol Hux, father of General Hux from ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' is, post-release, probably an allusion to [[Film/TheGuard Brendan Gleeson]], father of Domhnall Gleeson who played Hux.


** Old Jho helping Holshef, the Leonises, and the Spanjafs escape Lothal was a last resort for Fry, who originally considered using the ''Ghost'' crew (Merei would've contacted them via Jho, and Ezra would've persuaded the others to pay their debt to Zare, but it was scratched as the show stated that the rebels didn't want to be near Lothal after the Mustafar fiasco), then Lando (which Fry then felt would be an AssPull[=/=]GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere in the context of the story and an unnecessary cameo).

** The reason why the only members of the crew that go save Zare and co. from Arkanis are Ezra, Sabine, and Zeb (excused in-universe as the trio sneaking off to help) is because Kanan was there, he would've sensed Dhara's dark-side tantrum and would've asked more about what happened to her. Fry wanted to [[SequelHook save this for later]].

** Fry wanted Zare to run into [[spoiler:Beck]] inside the tower as a {{Cliffhanger}} to "Imperial Justice", but ultimately had to save it for the next book.
** Zare was going to attend a full year at the Academy rather than get a midyear transfer. The top cadet would be transferred to Arkanis, so Chiron would've backed up Zare, while Roddance would've backed up Oleg. As Fry wasn't expecting [[spoiler:the Grand Inquisitor to die at the end of Season 1]], [[ChekhovsGun he fell back on a throwaway line he made about midyear transfers]].
