Re: A Military Star Fleet and UESPA

I've looked at Starfleet as being a multipurpose space agency and UESPA as a purely scientific organization. Since the 22nd-Century, Starfleet and UESPA have frequently worked together, IMO. Kirk's 5-year mission may very well have been developed and authorized by UESPA, but the ship was also expected to carry out additional missions for Starfleet as well.

Presumably, the United Earth still exists as a local government within the larger Federation, so it's plausible that UESPA still exists even into the 24th-Century.
