On the cover, Kalista's sword has DS engraved on the pommel. These are the intials of the cover's painter, Dan Dos Santos.

 

On page 1, panel 1, an advertising billboard has a logo of an apple with a bite taken out of it, similar to the logo of the computer and technology company Apple Inc. 

 

On page 12, panel 3, the crate being loaded onto Kalista's ship has a similar design as Imperial crates seen in stories from the Star Wars franchise.
