The Steady Wing was a cruiser used by the Galactic Republic and Jedi Order. During the High Republic Era, it set out from Port Haileap, intending to carry its passengers, including young Jedi Knight Vernestra Rwoh, her charge Avon Starros, Padawan Imri Cantaros and Dalnan Ambassador Weft and his son Honesty, to the new space station Starlight Beacon. En route, however, bombs went off aboard the Steady Wing, leading Rwoh, Starros, Imri, Honesty, and Starros' protocol droid J-6 to escape in a shuttle after they were separated from the rest of their party. The Steady Wing was destroyed soon afterwards, killing everyone still onboard, and the survivors became stranded on the jungle moon Wevo.

- The Star Wars Book dates the launch of the Starlight Beacon to 232 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 232 BBY in the dating system used by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. As The High Republic: A Test of Courage takes place shortly before the dedication of the Starlight Beacon, its events, including the destruction of the Steady Wing in the Haileap system, must occur around that year.
