The TPM novel says there's 10,000. But then the AOTC novel says there's 9,000. So either 1000 died between 32 BBY and 22 BBY or someone's wrong.
Did they ever say anything on screen? I know Star Wars isn't like Star Trek, but, at the same time, I haven't read the novels so I'm wondering if there's anything I missed.
