There are several ways to ask ‘What time is it?’ When working within the 24 hour interplanetary communication as favoured by the Federation it is not a question but a command; REP YIPER - 'ascertain/specify the hour’. In non-military contexts and situations where interplanetary communication is not a concern the most common way of asking this question however is quite different. It is based on the way the question was asked in ancient times; 'ARLOG QOYLU'PU' - How many times has (someone) heard (it)? or How many times has somone heard it? The answer to this question for example would be CA'LOG QOYLU'PU' for two o’clock [e.g. from NEWS group online, 2/3/99]

'ARLOG how many times? (ques)  There are several ways to ask ‘What time is it?’ When working within the 24 hour interplanetary communication as favoured by the Federation it is not a question but a command; REP YIPER - 'ascertain/specify the hour’. In non-military contexts and situations where interplanetary communication is not a concern the most common way of asking this question however is quite different. It is based on the way the question was asked in ancient times; 'ARLOG QOYLU'PU' - How many times has (someone) heard (it)? or How many times has somone heard it? The answer to this question for example would be CA'LOG QOYLU'PU' for two o’clock  [NEWS group online, 2/3/99]
