The megalight per hour (abbreviated MGLT) was a unit used to measure the relative sublight speed of starships in realspace. For example, the RZ-1 A-wing interceptor was markedly faster (120 MGLT) than the BTL-A4 Y-wing assault starfighter/bomber (70 MGLT).
- RZ-1 A-wing interceptor: 120 MGLT
- Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptor: 118 MGLT
- TIE/IN interceptor: 110 MGLT
- TIE Advanced x1: 105 MGLT
- Aggressive ReConnaissance-170 starfighter, T-65B X-wing starfighter: 100 MGLT
- CR90 corvette: 81 MGLT
- Millennium Falcon: 75 MGLT
- Slave I: 70 MGLT
- BTL-A4 Y-wing assault starfighter/bomber, Sentinel-class landing craft, Providence-class dreadnought: 70 MGLT
- MC80 star cruiser, Imperial-class Star Destroyer: 60 MGLT
- Lambda-class T-4a shuttle: 54 MGLT
- Solar sailer: 27 MGLT
Behind the scenesEdit
The MGLT unit originated in a reference chart comparing the propulsive capabilities of starfighters, drawn by Industrial Light & Magic during the production of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. Some of the figures provided in Star Wars Super Graphic: A Visual Guide to a Galaxy Far, Far Away are markedly different than those shown on the original diagram.
