A second was a measure of time, and the baseline of Human time measurements.[1]


A minute consisted of sixty seconds.[1] On Stardate 1514.0, Balok issued an ultimatum, stating that the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 would be destroyed, and that he was granting "ten Earth time periods known as minutes to make preparations."[2]


A cycle was a Romulan unit of time, roughly equivalent to a minute.[3]


An hour consisted of sixty minutes.[1]


A day was the amount of time that it took a planet to complete a rotation on its axis. On Earth, a day was 24 hours long.[1]


A year was the amount of time that it takes for a planet to complete a revolution around its parent star. One year on Earth was 365 days,[1] and was used as the basis for a year of the Stardate system introduced in 2322.[4]


A century was 100 years.[5]
