    It's a science fiction game conversion website as can be seen from it's URL. Therfore a turn is most likely a game turn.

    The game system is called "Rifts" (see the bottom of the webpage) - thus the website is a description of how to implement Babylon-5 (a TV show) in the "Rifts" game system.
