Instead of jumping right into making huge manned motherships with lander rockets and all of that complex stuff, I have an idea that might be potentially more fun. A United Earth Space Probe Agency of sorts that uses a single small (by small I mean something like Skylab-sized, not REALLY small) probe that can fly using a warp drive, a high-Isp engine, and wings/landing gears for planetary exploration.

You could send multiple probes I guess. The point though is that the player is in some laboratory on Earth observing the probe and controlling it (in a superluminal comms system for the sake of playability)

UESPA, Star Trek's dirty little secret tongue

It always made me smile when they'd be referenced in TOS, because in Ireland when I was growing up, "Spa" was an insult, so it sounded like Kirk and co were calling each other "You spa!". I was young.

I never heard it pronounced in acronym form in TOS, only referred as United Earth Space Probe Agency to a fighter pilot from the 60s, instead of Federation or Starfleet, to emphasize the UNITED EARTH part.

Besides, it's totally Wehy-Spah
