The 1970s was, due to numerous visits by the Doctor's faulty TARDIS, a temporally complicated decade in history to the point that it merged with the succeeding 1980s, resulting in the placing of events becoming distorted and disputed. In light of this, the Accord, foreseeing a "great war spreading through time", reinforced the vulnerable decades by altering the DNA of every single person who lived within them on a temporal level so that they subconsciously realised that there were inconsistencies with history. In response to the temporal discrepancies, a dating protocol was established by the United Nations on 1 January 1990, (PROSE: The Enfolded Time) which would be used as a reference by the Unified Intelligence Taskforce.
