A minute was a measurement of time, equal to 60 seconds. (DTI novel: Watching the Clock)

Originating as an Earth measure of time by the Human civilization, minutes were used throughout the Federation. Minutes could be converted from other time measurements used by other races and cultures throughout the Alpha and Beta Quadrants of the galaxy. When an Excalbian simulacrum of Abraham Lincoln boarded the USS Enterprise in 2268, he asked if the Starfleet crew if they used minutes to measure time, as they had in Lincoln's 19th century. Captain James T. Kirk responded that they could convert to minutes, referring to the starship's chronometers sometimes using stardates. (TOS episode: "The Savage Curtain")
