Gaians established their own calendar to match rotation and orbital cycle of planet around the Gaia star. The calendar begins on day Ark left Earth. Calendar years labeled: After Emergence (AE).
There are fourteen months in the Gaian year, each month equals one orbit of the moon Coeus around the planet. The names are simply first month (Primemes), second month (segundomes), etc. in Portuguese. One orbit takes 25.54 days. The number of days in each month alternates between 25 and 26 days to correct for the remainder. The Gaian year is 357 total Gaian days.
A Gaian day is the equivalent of 28.5 Earth hours. A Gaian hour is approximately 59 minutes, giving the day 29 Gaian hours. It is unclear why the Consortium decided on 29 hours.
