A note on time and distance.
The standard unit of distance in use in intrastellar travel is the Light Second (LS), an extrapolation of this being the Light Year (LY) in use in interstellar travel. Both of these are relative distances, and depend on which species is using them.
In human controlled space and on Earth the following is the current standard scientific definition of a second:
The second is the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium-133 atom. (url="http://"http://www.metas.ch/en/scales/second.html")http://www.metas.ch/...les/second.html(/url)
By a startling coincidence the Elejeetian second is also defined along similar lines being slightly longer, being defined as 9,192,631,432 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium-133 atom.
For all practical purposes the Elejeetian Second may be taken as being equal to that of the humans for measurement over short distances.
Other races seconds vary somewhat more.
Oh, so it is another bug hunt then...
