A megalight, abbreviated MGLT, was a standard unit of distance in space.
Behind the scenes
In the Star Wars: Behind the Magic interactive CD-ROM, released in the Fall of 1998, a "vehicle speed comparison chart" shows the maximum sublight speeds of various spacecraft displayed in MGLT. However, the Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance instruction manual, from 1999, suggests, "To dodge missiles, try flying 90 megalights per hour or faster," which would indicate that MGLT is the unit of distance.
