How would one say the time of day or the time that something is occurring/going to occur? So far, I've seen info on how long a week/month/year/etc. and what the days of the week are called but nothing about telling time off of a watch or watch-like device. Thank you! —Unsigned comment byFleurgoth (talk • contribs).
Coruscant Nights III: Patterns of Force: "When the Gungan cook had gone to deliver the crystal and the message--which was that the "work" would really be done at 0400 hours, three hours earlier than stated"
Darth Bane: Path of Destruction: "The twenty-standard-hour day of Apatros was split evenly between the two shifts of miners. Des and the rest of the early crew worked from 0800 to 1800; his counterparts worked from 1800 to 0800. Groshik, in an effort to maximize profits, opened each afternoon at 1300 and didn't close for ten straight hours. This allowed him to serve the night-crew workers before they started and catch the day crew when that shift was over. He'd close at 0300, clean for two hours, sleep for six, then get up at 1100 and start the process all over again. His routine was well known to all the miners; the Neimoidian was as regular as the rising and setting of Apatros's pale orange sun."
Darth Maul: Saboteur: "They'll arrive by way of Rimma 13, and are scheduled to decant from hyperspace at 1400 hours, Eriadu local time."
In Karen Traviss's entries in the Legacy of the Force series, chapters are headed or divided with times, such as Legacy of the Force: Bloodlines chapter 3, "THE SKYWALKERS' APARTMENT, CORUSCANT: 0800 HOURS" or Legacy of the Force: Revelation midway through chapter 9: "ANAKIN SOLO, FONDORIAN SPACE, TAPANI SECTOR: 0500 GST"
There is a galactic standard based on the 24-hour Coruscant day called Coordinated Galactic Time or Galactic Standard Time (GST). It seems to be mostly used in novels by Karen Traviss or Troy Denning. As far as canon goes, there was an offhand reference to synchronizing with Galactic Standard Time in Episode VII, but I don't know any further details. It's probably safe to assume it's similar to the Legends version. -- Darth Culator(Talk) 02:21, July 11, 2016 (UTC)
