When I completed the draft to chapter 1 of the website’s History repot, I wrote the blog post “Rationalising and solving UESPA problems” to complement it and show some of the thought behind it. Today I have put up chapter 2, which mainly deals with the formation of the Earth Cargo Service (ECS) and reactor progress for the UESPA. I will not be writing a post that large on here for it. Just a brief.
So. The ECS was a major theme of two episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise (“Fortunate Son” and “Horizon”), where it is shown to be an agency responsible for governing the operations of Earth freighters. This chapter follows a similar sort of format to the first one, combining what we know canonically with my own creative approach of bringing it to life; explaining political, economic, and social reasons for the development of the ECS and contemporary ships.
