United Earth Space Probe Agency (UESPA)

Founded mid 2060’s

 

 

United Earth Space Probe Agency (UESPA) was founded in the aftermath of WWIII (c. 2153) and First Contact with Vulcans (2163).   It was the first official agency of a ‘united’ Earth

 

UESPA may have also been responsible for the Warp-Five Program that was established in 2119.   The Warp-Five Program was run by Henry Archer, a warp engineer, and Zefram Cochrane.   

 

So it would make sense that UESPA was organization responsible for overseeing the new warp technology with the objective of using warp to explore space. 

 

The Vulcans as we know, for nearly 80 years, were very cautious in allowing the Humans to use their spaceflight technologies.  It would however, makes sense that many ships at this time were hybrids of both Human and Vulcan technologies.  

 

For instance, the Enterprise (XCV-330) may have been such a vehicle (non-canon).   In US Navy usage, “CV” is used to designate aircraft carriers, which could make this an experimental fighter carrier.   ‘X’  also  stands for eXperimental.

 

 

A Timeline of Selected Events

In 2155, the opening conference that discussed a possible “Coalition of Planets” was overseen by both UESPA and Earth Starfleet (“Demons, ENT”).

 

In the 2260’s, UESPA was still a major operating agency working with Starfleet vessels.  In 2266, Captain James T. Kirk reported to UESPA Headquarters after learning of the destruction of the Antares (“Charlie X, TOS”).

 

In 2267, UESPA was an operating authority of the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701)‘s five-year mission. Captain Kirk informed John Christopher of this after time traveling to the year 1969 (“Tomorrow is Yesterday, TOS”).

 

 

In 2293, UESPA personnel were still involved in construction of Starfleet starships, most noticeably on the USS Enterprise (Star Trek Generations set artwork).
