A secton is a Colonial measurement of time and analogous to one Earth week. Its plural form is "sectons".
- The original script for Greetings From Earth has a key that says a centon is a minute, a centar is an hour, a secton is a week, and a yahren is a year.
- In the novel Armageddon by Richard Hatch and Christopher Golden, the glossary of terms does not define "secton" but does define the term "week" as being "ten days."
