The name 'Shantipole', used here as Quarrie's base of operations and project name, first appeared in the 1989 West End Games role-playing book "Strike Force: Shantipole", in which it was revealed that another Mon Calamari, Admiral Ackbar, was instrumental in the design of the B-Wing fighter.

The rebels' mission is to enter the atmosphere of Ibaar and drop food down to the surface. They encounter a blockade of 5 Imperial ships clustered closely together. The rebel ships push forward in a straight line right at the Imperial ships, leading to heavy losses. In a two-dimensional setting, like on the surface of a lake, this would make sense. It makes no sense in a 3D setting. All the rebels would need to do to circumvent the blockade is to enter the atmosphere at a different point, including the far side of the planet, away from the blockading ships. See more
