Galactic time

Galactic time is the time used by most of the members of the Alliance. On a planet, chronometers usually display Galactic time as well as whatever the ‘local time’ might be. Presented below is galactic time as well as Earth standard equivalents for comparison. Many of the same words are used for different increments of time. For example earth standard time and galactic time both use the term “second” to describe a very breif moment of time. But a ‘second’ is a different amount of time depending on which time standard you are using. Likewise a ‘day’ is generally understood to be the time it takes for a planet to make one full rotation, and a ‘year’ is the amount of time it takes for a planet to complete a single orbit around it’s star.
