Time Zone Information

This page has been created as a general help file for Internet Users to have a tool available to convert time and known when a SFOL SIM is taking place in their time zone. Star Fleet On-Line will post all times in Eastern Daylight or Eastern Standard Time. The tables below show plus and minus time conversions. The clocks above assume that your computer clock is correct, and adjusts the time accordingly so that you will have the time in various parts of the world. Please remeber, that Eastern Time in the United States can be both Eastern Standard and Eastern Daylight Time. The Charts below will list Eastern Standard Time. This list is as correct as we can get it...however, if you notice an error that you are sure to be incorrect, please contact the Fleet Admiral so we can get it corrected.

Here is a sample as to how to interperet our SIM Time Posts. We normally post our times in Eastern Time alone, however, sometimes we do post them to reflect Eastern Time and GMT as well.

A SIM is to take place at 8:00pm Eastern Time on Wednesday.

The SIM would take place at 8:00pm in the Eastern Time Zone in the United States and Canada.
The SIM would take place at 7:00pm in the Central Time Zone in the United States and Canada.
The SIM would take place at 6:00pm in the Mountain Time Zone in the United States and Canada.
The SIM would takeplace at 5:00pm in the Pacific Time Zone in the United States and Canada.

The SIM would take place at 9:00pm Atlantic Time in Canada.
The SIM would take place at 1:00am (early Thursday morning) in the Greenwhich Mean Time (GMT) time Zone. This would effect London and areas listed above.
The SIM would take place at 11:00am (Thursday morning/afternoon) in Australia.

If a SIM time is announced as Eastern Time ONLY - add 5 hours to that time to come up with the GMT time. Then go back to the chart above and find what area of the world you are in. Then -- do the math + or - the amount of hours GMT and find out what time the SIM starts in your area.
We at Star Fleet On-Line hope that this is a useful reference for everyone.
