MY UNIVERSE

 

If you've read my books and want to know more about the worlds in them, here are a few background facts. Want to know the names and political alignments of the major worlds of the Federation? Read on. Something about the different Federation species? Check the sub-page on Alien Peoples. How the planet Vhar (Flame of Liberty) developed its caste system? Check the sub-page on that.

 

 

 

 

Standard Galactic time:
Although each world has its own natural time, a Standard Galactic Year is also used, based on that of Goltos which was the first capital of the Federation. One SGY contains 350 days (Goltos in fact has 350.6) and is divided into 10 months of 35 days, each month being further divided into 5 weeks of 7 days. One day is 24 hours, one hour 100 minutes of 50 seconds (approximately 0.86 Old Terran seconds). One GY is therefore equal to 1.1412 Old Terran years, and:
5 GY = 5.706 OTY          30 GY = 34.24 OTY
10GY = 11.4                   40 GY = 45.65
15GY = 17.12                 50 GY = 57.06
20GY = 22.82               60 GY = 68.47
25GY = 28.53              100 GY = 114.12
The names of the ten Standard months are: Unuar, Duar, Tresem, Qaduar, Qintem, Sextem, Setem, Oktem, Novem and Dekem. The names of the seven Standard days are: Primon, Sekon, Terton, Qarton, Qinton, Hexon, Hepton.
 
Standard Galactic measurement:
Because the Federation comprised from the start several different species, it was considered advisable not to adopt the measures of any of the members, but to create new ones, which were derived from the circumference of Goltos as being the first world settled by a combination of species. One SG metre = 1.04 Old Terran metres (= approximately 41 inches). The average heights of some of the major species both within and outside the Federation are given here in both measures:
Dalonj              2.20 SGM     2.29 OTM (7 foot 6)
Human male     1.80 SGM     1.87 OTM (6 foot 2)
Vhrel                1.47             1.53 (5 foot)
Alpha Krish      2.02             2.10 (7 foot)
Thelassor         1.86             1.93 (6 foot 4)
Lok-Kordar      3.05             3.17 (10 foot 5)
