In the novelization of Star Wars: The Force Awakens Unkar Plutt runs into Rey at Maz's place due to a covert Imperial Homing Beacon, which he says is old technology.

Is this beacon the same one that Tarkin put on there those many years before, or was a new one added in between the events of A New Hope and The Force Awakens?

  • @phantom42 canon if possible, I'm listening to the audiobook right now and it came upon that scene so I was a little confused. – CBredlow Jul 25 '16 at 18:31
  • My original only has a c-canon answer, but the question is identical. – phantom42 Jul 25 '16 at 18:34
  • We're both asking what happened to the tracking device Tarkin put on the ship. – phantom42 Jul 25 '16 at 18:35
  • This has the makings of a unique question, but as written it's a dupe. – Valorum Jul 25 '16 at 18:38
