Juni: During the entire post-holocene period, we have been accelerating in order to gather as much hydrogen as possible, so as to feed the [English]Icarus drive's stellar fragment. This is not sustainable.
Juni: However, Zero has learned enough of how the Homin designed Unity to have come up with a rather elegant solution.
[[Juni is facing a small press assembly, including Kali, Merrick, and some random unnamed Agent]]
Juni: By steering to the galactic core, we can gather more hydrogen and raw materials, so Unity may resume its original purpose of colonizing the galaxy - albeit now without the Homin, of course.
Juni: Next question? Yes, Merrick.
Merrick: General, does this affect us in the short term?

I was just using it as the geologic era on Earth, which of course is a silly way to measure things within a constructed ship, but I'd been wanting to refer to the "post-holocene era" since pretty much as soon as I introduced Chandra/Kandra.
I suppose you could say it's a...
