    Looking for the definition of these letters: <MGLT> They make reference to something having to do with the speed of air travel. Anyone got a clue???

    Never heard of it. Sounds almost like a sandwich, though. ;)

    The speed rating MGLT means 'Modern Galactic Light Time' and 1 MGLT is equivalent to 13 Km/h.

    Thanks for the input, all. DarthSapient, Your response is coinciding with the info I found on a search somewhere else. Where did you get that info, just out of curiosity? I'd like to look it up for additional info on the subject of ship speeds. Thanks again, all ~Nox :)

    Thanks, DarthSapient. You're a doll. You've solved the mystery of mysteries for me. I thought I'd never figure it out. I do think, however, that "Mayo Green-Lettuce Tomato" is a bit easier to remember.... :) You really made my day. Thanks again, DS
