The interplanetary time definition UST has been established to create a unified galactic standard in time measurement. Whereas by nature each planet has its own very specific natural time measurements, all these are measured against the Uninified Standard.
Counting forward from the emerging of humans in the new galaxy, UST was already used on Bricera and other human-settled planets and was generalized with the foundation of the United Planets at the Treaty of Hedrec.
