Time cycle

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

A time cycle is a Colonial measurement of time.

Time cycle, or sometimes "cycle", is a term for "day". The plural form is time cycles, or cycles.

A time cycle may be equivalent to 24 centares (TOS: "Fire in Space").


  • In "Fire in Space", Lieutenant Boomer states that he was on furlon for the next "24 centares", which may be akin to a pilot saying that he or she was on furlon for 24 hours (one Earth day).
