How are dates and times written?

Postby eggplantman » Mon Jul 17, 2017 7:20 pm

I understand years are written as SC 2XX, but how about months and days? Are the months still using the Gregorian calendar's setup (J F M A M J J A S O N D)? If not, what is used? Is it still written as "Month, 17, SC 2XX?"

Slowly working on a short lore story written as a colony head's log, so it's kinda necessary.

Why have months in space at all? They're used to track seasons on Earth, but if you were just syncing your calendar to the central extra-planetary government, it's probably easiest to just use "Day xxx of Year 2xxx."
Maybe use a Martian year as the standard?
