An adjustment for time displacement that occurs when a vessel travels within, and then exits, fold space. While fold travel is nearly instantaneous for the crew of a folding space craft, time passes much slower in real space and long distance fold travel requires that space craft re-synchronize their onboard chronometers to adjust for this difference. Typically the adjustment is measured in hours. When Alto Saotome in his VF-25F Messiah escorted pop idol Sheryl Nome travelling aboard a space transport to Gallia 4 in 2059, both craft adjusted their onboard chronometers upon defold by +172.25 hours (Macross Frontier, Episode 12).
