The Republic uses a metric time system. You will find below a rough conversion system to the old Earth system of time keeping.
  • micron - second (mike)
  • millcron - minute (mill)
  • centcron - hour (sen)
  • cron - day (kron)
  • dekcron - week (deck)
  • dodecron - month (doad)
  • cycle - year
  • aeon - 100 years
  • epoch - 1000 years
Therefore time is broken down as such:-
  • 100 microns in a millcron
  • 100 millcrons in a centcron
  • 10 centicrons in a cron
  • 10 crons in a dekcron
  • 3 dekcrons in a dodecron
  • 12 dodecron in a cycle
  • 100 cycles in an aeon
  • 100 aeons in an epoch
On planets where a cron is longer than it is on Krylos due to it's rotation, extra centcrons are added into a time period named the "Time Slip" - between 5 cent and 6 cent. All chronometers will stop at 5 sent and not change to 6 cent until after the "time slip". This allows for a commonality of time throughout the Republic.

*please note - a micron is not the same period of time as a second and is only shown as a reference, the same goes for all other time units

The 10 Cron's are as follows:-

  1. Ahah
  2. Armah
  3. Seriel
  4. Arah
  5. Rielel
  6. Asdel
  7. Dumua
  8. Gheidix
  9. V'sisa
  10. Aurlax

The 12 dodecron's are as follows

  1. Rielat
  2. Gielaph
  3. Katib
  4. Peniel
  5. Zopha
  6. Uvun
  7. Su'er
  8. Uznar
  9. Queth
  10. Edaru
  11. Greii
  12. Riika
