Jahren is one year in the realm of Battlestar Galactica. Actually jahren also means year in German. Does this mean that the warriors on Galactica were originally of German heritage? Are, in fact, all people derived from Germans? Not bloody likely. My guess is that Glen Larson just thought that 'jahren' is exotic enough for the US audience, "so we just say jahren instead of year."
