In need of a ship large enough to possess hangar bays, the rebels head to the Twi'lek home planet of Ryloth and enlist the aid of General Cham Syndulla.

- The Imperial light carrier ship design is based on artwork by Doug Chiang and Troy Vigil created for the first edition of The Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels (1996), where it was described as the Rebel ship, Flurry, from the Star Wars novel The Truce at Bakura (1994). The triangular shape of the ship had more of an Imperial aesthetic, hence its role as an Imperial ship in "Homecoming."
- The emergence of Hera's Twi'lek accent came as a result of fans asking why she didn't have the same accent as Twi'leks from the Clone Wars episodes.
- The original script referenced "The Ballad of Cham Syndulla," a song composed by Gobi Glie and written for an online web comic that accompanied the first season of The Clone Wars.
- Cham's shoulder armor, Gobie's gauntlets, vambraces and holster and Numa's arm armor and belt are all salvaged pieces of Ghost Company clone trooper kit.
- On Numa's upper left arm, the word "BOIL" is written in aurebesh as well as a particular crest in reference to one of the clone troopers that rescued her in The Clone Wars. She also has a faded Tooka illustration on her tunic.
- Robin Atkin Downes, the actor who portrays Cham, returned to it after playing Cham in The Clone Wars. Meanwhile, the voice of Numa was provided by Catherine Taber, who played Padme Amidala in The Clone Wars.
