And also somewhat the Bureau of Mines. The way the Enterprise flew into a ion storm in Court Martial, reminds me of the USAF flying into hurricanes for scientific research. And the Enterprise visiting various science outposts like (again) the USAF tending to Antarctic bases. The British stopped flying the Harrier some 16 months ago and resently sold over 70 of them surplus to the US Marine Corp, who will strip them down and reassemble about 25-30 into their night attack version. The UK will get their F35s in 8 years and will be without for the interval, the USMC will get their F35s in 4 years and didn't want to go without.
