Rogue One is the eighth film in the Star Wars series. Chronologically in-universe, it takes place just before Episode IV: A New Hope, but the movie is not part of the main saga; it is considered a "stand-alone".

- Cassian Andor, a Rebel Alliance Intelligence officer (Diego Luna)

The first fics on the Archive of Our Own were posted in April 2016, following the release of the first trailer. Many of these included characters from the Original Trilogy, like Luke Skywalker or Leia Organa.
The most popular ships in the Rogue One fandom are Jyn Erso/Cassian Andor, Chirrut Îmwe/Baze Malbus, and Cassian Andor/Bodhi Rook. Many ships in the Rogue One fandom are not referred to by portmanteaus, unlike other Star Wars ships (such as Obikin for Anakin/Obi-Wan) but instead were created by using the occupations of romantic interests, such as 'RebelCaptain' for Jyn and Cassian, and 'SpiritAssasin' for Chirrut and Baze.
